Cheap Air Fare

Contrary to Popular Belief, Some Cheap Flights Still Exist

If you live close to two cities with airports, check fares on both. One city might be a lot cheaper than the other. My mom and I are traveling together this summer. She lives in Houston; I live in Austin. Flying out of Austin was about $30 to $50 cheaper one-way than flying out of Houston and that included non-stop flights.

Summer is usually busier than the rest of the year, but, I am telling you this summer every damn flight is PACKED. I have been flying for 8 years and have never seen anything like it.
