Book Cheap Airfare With Hidden-City Ticketing
Airline ticket prices aren’t based on distance traveled, but by market demand, said Jessica Festa, the travel blogger behind Jessie on a Journey. When booking your flight, you need to consider more than just direct flights.
“Your most direct flight won’t always be your cheapest option,” she said. “In fact, adding an extra leg to your itinerary that you won’t actually fly can save you tons of money.”
Festa suggested playing around on airline booking sites and flight-leg combinations. You can also use Skiplagged.com, which does the work of finding the cheapest flights for you.
“Just make sure to book two one-leg trips, instead of two round-trips, as once you don’t complete a section of your booking, the rest typically gets cancelled,” she said.
