There's some great air fare deals out there.
You just have to know the right websites to find them.
For years, KAYAK has been the go-to website for many frequent flyers.
What sets it apart are the filters you can apply to your search.
Like specific airline, layover duration, or even specific type of plane.
If you plan on travelling abroad, try Kayak's international sister site, Momondo.
Before you enter your search, scroll to the bottom of the homepage and click on the American flag in order to see fares in US dollars.
Momondo searches obscure international airlines to find you the best deals.
And finally, it's always a good idea to run your search through Google.
You can either enter your trip details directly into the search bar or go to google.com/flights.
There are fewer filters to apply, but the flight insight buttons gives you ways to adjust your travel plans to find the exact fare right for you.
