Want to save when flying? Fly on unpopular days, search thoroughly and often

Planes are more crowded and fees seem to keep rising, but travel experts say ticket prices aren't shooting up this year, and with a little planning, you can fly affordably this holiday season. "Our data shows ticket prices for Thanksgiving up about 1 percent compared to last year, which is less than inflation," Rick Seaney, CEO of FareCompare.com, wrote in an email. But cheaper air travel might mean taking flights at odd times or off-peak days, and even choosing flights to and from outlying cities instead of your final destination.
