10. Buy Late
Sometimes the early bird really doesn’t get the worm. Lots of airlines offer last minute deals for procrastinators like us. Woo-hoo!

Regional, small craft airlines are popping up all over the country. If you’re not afraid of small planes and your destination is relatively close by, look into your local airlines to see if they offer cheap flights that are more competitive than the big guys.
