I'm new at this, thank you for the wonderful info! I am trying to find a site that lets you pick a destination and not have to pick specific dates, and provides the current deals or best current price to that destination. I keep seeing deals from specific airlines but I don't want to subscribe to all of them. Is that what consolidators do? The few I've tried all seem to want specific dates of travel. TY!
Some sites like Expedia will give you the difference if the prices end up going down. I know one of my trips this summer I found my hotel was cheaper after I booked and they gave me the difference and a gift card. I have nothing but good things to say about Expedia....I even booked my overseas trip to Ireland with them and it was cheaper then any other site and a booking agent. You do have to mix and match dates to see what's best but its amazing.
Speaking of when to book flights, I read that weekends are a good time to purchase tickets, although I still stick by the 'Tuesday' rule. Checked a flight on Friday and Saturday. It was $301. Checked it today (Tuesday) and it was $20 cheaper. I have seen the Tuesday rule stay pretty consistent.
