How is it possible that one passenger pays $350 for an airline ticket when another passenger pays almost $900 for the seat right next to him?

It's all about taking your time and doing your homework before you travel.

Here are 7 tips to help you find the lowest airfares.

Book early. Reserve your seats as soon as you know where you want to go and when. Bookings made 3 weeks in advance of departure dates are often eligible for discounts. Having said that, you can also… Book Last Minute. Are you footloose and fancy free? Then keep your eyes open for the really great last minute deals available through sites like LastMinute.com. These are often the best travel bargains as airlines and hotels are trying to liquidate unsold space. Stay the Weekend. Return trips that include a Saturday night stay are often less expensive. Compare Prices Online. Check fare prices at Orbitz, Expedia and Travelocity… make note of flights and prices, but don't book your flights just yet! Call the Airline. I occasionally save between 20 and 100 bucks by calling the airline with the same flights I found online. Travel 'Off-Season'. Ed and I travelled to South America just before their peak season and it was our best trip ever. Instead of suffering on tour buses that were full to overflowing, we enjoyed the luxury of private tours - for less than it would have cost us 2 weeks later in the season. Split Segments.

Rather than book a hefty multi-trip ticket, consider booking 2 or more tickets. For example, we fly from Vancouver to Hong Kong or Singapore and then pick up an Asia pass for getting to Kuala Lumpur, Borneo, Bangkok etc.Take the time to research your options and then you can use what you save on some incredible sightseeing trips when you are at your destination.
