It's Tuesday and you know what that means -- it's a great day to search for and buy plane tickets. The middle of the week consistently proves to be the best and cheapest days for purchasing flights or actually traveling since airlines tend to reduce their ticket fares or put out sales in order to boost sales. Whether you're dreading today's election results and are formulating a last minute escape plan, still need to book that upcoming holiday travel, or are planning ahead for a future trip, here are some of my favorite flight search engines you should know about and use!
(PS - Remember to turn on your private browsing when you search!)
Several of these sites allow you to save searches for e-mailed price alerts, which is handy if you don't want to check the sites yourself everyday.
Rather than relying on one, get into the habit of cross-checking multiple sites when you do your search. It might seem annoying at first, but it can save you a lot of money in the end that can be used on more exciting things when you get to your destination. FYI - If staying domestic (U.S. travel), I usually use ITA Matrix, Google Flights, Kayak and/or Hipmunk. The others I tend to use more in conjunction with international travel.

Happy travels :)
