How To Look For The Cheapest Round Trip Airfare

Searching for domestic round trip airfare is so 2000s. That was the time when you needed to book a round trip ticket to get the best price. One way flights were only for business people and because the bill was going to the expense account, were priced accordingly. But bit by bit, as technology improved, airlines started to price flights by the individual segments, so when you paid for a round trip ticket, you were actually paying for two one way flights on the same reservation number. Knowing this, you can now build an itinerary that best fits your needs and still save some money. I take more trips where I fly on two different carriers instead of ones where all my flights are on the same airline.

I’ve stopped worrying about every little expense and my travels are much better because of the change. I don’t stress over every decision. I don’t spend hours figuring out travel plans when a simpler plan that is a little more expensive is available.

I realized that Sharon and I have been making these decisions that deal with our bigger travel plans for years. What flights will we take? Which hotel should we stay at? What size car should we rent and from who? As we’ve gotten older and traveled more, we realize that it’s often best for us to spend a little more, but to pick our spots where we’ll get the best return. All of these factors are the same if I’m booking with cash or with miles and points.
