Try to keep your travel dates flexible. Can you arrive at your destination a day earlier or leave a day later? The more flexible you are on your travel dates, the more likely it is that you will be able to find cheap domestic flights that will get you where you need to go. It is when you have to fly on exact dates that you start to run into trouble. When you have some wiggle room you are free to search for the best deals possible. If you can't be flexible you are not going to have a choice but to pay the rates currently offered. Traveling to Honday Bay is easy. Some airlines only operate in parts of the country. If you can, go through an airline that only services the area you are traveling in. Southwest airlines, for example, will probably have the best deals in you're traveling through the southwest region. There are also discount airlines that offer special rates for people who cannot afford to fly on one of the major corporate airlines. The savings is worth the lack of perks you will find on these airlines. When you save a couple hundred dollars on your airfare, will you really miss the snack?
