    Here's my top tips for finding the cheapest flights

    1. Scour multiple websites to get the best deal

    2. Book your flight at least a month before you're due to travel.

    3. Avoid booking a flight to depart on Friday or Saturday. I find that departing on Wednesday or late Sunday gets you the best deals.

    4. Don't assume discount airlines like JetBlue and AirTran are cheapest. All they do is change their fares less frequently so, they're great if you want to lock in a price with confidence.

    5. Buying last minute won't always get you a cheap ticket. in fact, prices are generally higher for seats sold at the last minute because business travelers buy them.

    6. Book a flight with the non-refundable option as refundable tickets tend to be the most expensive.

    7. Avoid traveling to the destination if a conference or special event is happening there city (i.e. the Summerfest in Milwaukee).

    really nice tips..!! One can get cheap flights by registering 3 or 4 months before..It will cost too cheap, around half of the original instant ticket rate.

    There is no single best way to find cheap Australia flights. It all depends where you come from, and where in Australia you want to go. It depends on how flexible you are with your schedule, how long you plan to stay in Australia, and what you plan to do when you are here.

    book flights early

    many people seem to underestimate the benefits of booking a flight early. With oil prices going up, airlines are raising fees, I would say book your flight as soon as you know when you’re going instead of playing the waiting game.

    using flight search engines

    to chime in I would add using flight search engines to find the cheapest flights then book directly with the airline. It doesn't always work out cheaper though since I found sometimes that booking online with a booking operator actually worked out best. Anyhows, do your checks and and plan ahead...all the best
