Save Big on Summer Travel
Use Bing’s Price Predictor
Who hasn’t read about a major fare sale the day after putting down a nonrefundable deposit on a reservation? (Ouch.) Bing.com/travel helps you decide when to pull the trigger. After you put in your desired flight itinerary, the site tells you whether to buy your ticket now or to wait, based on historical fare data and price trends. (The site claims to have about a 75 percent accuracy rate, which independent experts don’t dispute.) You can use Bing’s “rate indicator” to shop for hotel rooms, too. It tells you whether a current price is a “deal,” an “average rate,” or “not a deal.”
