Here are some steps you can take to research the best flight prices:

  1. Use flight search engines: Flight search engines such as Google Flights, Skyscanner, and Kayak can help you compare prices from different airlines for your desired travel dates and destinations.
  2. Be flexible with your travel dates: If you're flexible with your travel dates, you may be able to find cheaper flights. Try searching for flights a few days before or after your desired travel dates to see if there are any cheaper options.
  3. Consider alternate airports: If there are multiple airports near your destination, try searching for flights to and from alternate airports. This can sometimes result in cheaper flights.
  4. Book early: Generally, booking flights early can save you money. Try to book your flights at least 3-4 weeks in advance.
  5. Look for airline sales and discounts: Airlines often have sales and discounts that can save you money on flights. Sign up for airline newsletters or follow them on social media to stay informed about these deals.
  6. Use credit card rewards and miles: If you have a travel rewards credit card, you may be able to use your rewards or miles to book flights. This can save you a lot of money on airfare.
  7. Check for hidden fees: When comparing flight prices, make sure to check for any hidden fees such as baggage fees or seat selection fees. These can significantly increase the cost of your flight.

Overall, researching the best flight prices requires some time and effort, but it can help you save money on your travel plans. Consider asking one of our travel advisors to help you out. By using flight search engines, being flexible with your travel dates and airports, booking early, looking for sales and discounts, using credit card rewards, and checking for hidden fees, you can find the best deals on flights.
