Some of the best airfares can often be found on Tuesday at about noon because this is when many airlines release their weekly sales, according to FareCompare.com .

Flying on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday for domestic flights can often lead to low fares since not as many people travel.  Also, early morning and late night flights can be cheaper. 

Also, book in September for the best holiday travel deals.

Use Google Flights or Expedia to compare airlines and search multiple airports.  Travelers can set their budget and the map shows you what destinations fit into your schedule.

Also, don't forget to set airfare alerts so the travel sites do the work for you.

Finally, a tool on Hotwire's site call TripStarter tells you the cheapest times to fly from your home airport.
