How to Save on Air Travel Expenses
Be Willing to Wait
If you’re traveling on an overfilled flight (and you’re on a flexible schedule), volunteer to give up your seat at the check-in counter. If you’re picked, the airline will give you a voucher for a free round-trip domestic ticket, or a $300 airline credit. Customers have been known to receive even bigger rewards when the airline is desperate for spare seats; we were once on a flight in which travelers received $500 and a free hotel stay for relinquishing their tickets.
