They want you to spend your money just as much as you want to save it. So if you are thinking of traveling somewhere, find a few flights that you would like to take and watch the ticket prices.

It certainly can’t hurt to try this; the worst that will happen is that the airline agent will say no.
Choose to fly Stand By. This won’t work for you if you have a particular start and end date for your vacation. However, if you are not in a hurry – flying standby could be an excellent choice for you to buy cheaper seats on international flights.

After you arrive, you have your name put on a list for every flight that is on its way to the place you want to go. If a flight doesn’t fill one or more seats, the seat(s) will be available to the first person on the “stand by” list. You might have to wait for quite awhile, but it is an excellent way to save money. Flying internationally does not have to break the bank. The fact is it can be quite affordable if you do it right. If you take the time to do your research and play it smart you will end up spending alot less money on international flights.
