Recently I read about some new apps you can use to book your entire trip shortly before you go somewhere. Check these out. I haven’t tried any because I usually book a lot further in advance. But, they just may work!
The website Adioso lets you browse fares from your departure city to anywhere in the world and sort by price. With Kayak’s Explore app you can look at airfares on a global map to see how far your money can take you. This app, Get They Flight Out, puts the cheapest day of fares from Orbitz, Travelocity, and others on an easy to scan interface.
I also read about the site, LastMinuteTravel.com, which sells heavily discounted packages. Apparently you can join the site for $50 and save even more money. Not sure…haven’t tried it.
If you’ve tried these or any others, let me know how they worked.
