Craving a vay-k? Join the club…because now feels like the perfect time to jet off on a new adventure.

While plane fares can be pricey, we discovered some need-to-know hacks that may help you save major money when it’s time to buy your tickets. Read on to learn how to score the cheapest flights possible.

Take advantage of travel trends. Can you be flexible about when you take your getaway? Sign up for price alerts on Kayak or use Hipmunk to track travel trends so you know when it’s the best time to fly. You’ll save cash by buying your tickets when the time is right, rather than booking it when flights are most expensive. Game changing!

Snap up error fares. Error fares are mistakes made by the airline, and they’re usually scorching hot deals. We love Secret Flying for finding these cheap tickets — they even have a Twitter account you can get alerts from! You can also scope error fares on Fly4Free and Cheap Flights Lab.

Try new routes. Is there another airport close by? Run a search to see if you might be able to save a couple of bucks by planning to depart or leave from the other. Be creative about switching airlines or hopping on buses and trains too — it’ll add to the adventure and save you even more cash.
