Travelers yet to book their holiday vacations are rapidly running out of time to save money.
Typically October is the best month to score a decent airfare. As the holidays edge closer, prices edge up.
Travel website Kayak crunched last year's numbers and found that Thanksgiving airfares jumped 17 percent after October. And Christmas and New Year's Eve fares went up 51 percent and 25 percent after October.
USA Today listed a few for fliers to save on holiday airfare this year. Google's 'Flight Search and Bing Travel's 'Price Predictor' were two recommended resources to help reduce the added cost of traveling for the holidays.
Airlines are always having big sales, but fliers probably will not have time to look through dozens of websites. 'Airfare Watchdog' does that for you. The site searches multiple airline websites and pulls deals that sometimes don't come up in regular fare searches.
You also may not know that several major airlines offer airline refunds. If the price drops on a ticket you already purchased, they refund you the difference. Yapta is a website that tracks airfare price changes and will send you refund alerts.
