Easy Airfare Trick
Guys I read something the other day that I have to pass along. The entire article was talking about ways to score deals on the cheapest airfares. Most of the suggestions are things you've heard before, but one thing really jumped out at me. It basically said that you have to clear your internet "cookies" and start fresh to look for the best prices. Or, hop on a different computer, sign in "incognito" (don't know what that means or how to do it, but the article said so) because airlines track your searches. When it sees over and over again that you want to go to Barcelona, it knows you're going to pay anything to go to Barcelona and it will never give you unbelievable deal. Crazy right? And I believe it.
J.D. and I postponed our honeymoon when we got married. We got married during the middle of his second year of law school (during spring break! how romantic!) and knew he was headed back to school to exams so we decided we'd take a honeymoon at a later date. Didn't know when that would be. Almost a year and a half later he was a week from graduation in the middle of finals. I googled "cheap flights to Paris" and a fare poped up for $425 direct round trip! I called him (at the library studying!) and said "can we please go to Paris next week for our "honeymoon", I found cheap tickets!" He surprisingly said yes and we flew a week later to Europe for the first time. I've day dreamed and searched flights to Paris so many times since that trip that the internet gods know better than to give me a good deal. I think I'm going to go to the library and hop on a public computer without my internet history and see if I have better luck! :)
What do you think? Think there's any truth to it?!
