How to save $$ when booking travel

The first thing you need to do when looking for good deals is find a good website such as Kayak, faregeek or farecompare (there are many others but these are the two I choose when wanting a quick flight schedule with a list of available flights from various airlines) which will give you a list of flight options. Once you get this list, in most cases, you will find connecting flights as not all flights have the luxury of being non-stop and if they are they are typically more money anyway. So when you see the flights with more then one stop, go to that airline website and do a flight search only this time enter it as a multi-city flight entering the starting city along with the first stop arrival city and make the next flight the first arrival city and finally the destination city all on the same day.  Typically you will find yourself saving at least $50 on the entire flight!
