What’s one of the best ways to save a lot of money when planning a trip? Cutting as much as you can off the airfare. Assuming a family a four, chopping $600 down to $500 is massive — imagine what more you could do with an extra $400 in your pocket!
But finding cheap airfare isn’t always easy. We’ve outlined some tips for minimizing ticket costs before, but they aren’t always easy to follow. Fortunately, Google is here to help make your life easier.
When you’re interested in a flight, Google Flights will notify you when it expects that flight’s cost to increase or decrease in the near future and by how much. It will tell you how much you could save if you book now, or whether you should wait before booking.
Google Flights can also recommend alternate dates and/or airports for your trip that will save you money.
You can take advantage of this feature on Google Flights. Just visit using your web browser, whether on your computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.
