Ever heard of “hidden city” ticketing? Until yesterday, most people hadn’t either – until United Airlines and Orbitz decided to sue the 22-year-old New York City entrepreneur who developed an ingenious site called Skiplagged.com to allow people to easily search for this secret way to save a ton of money on airline tickets.
It appears his site is no longer producing working results, but that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck.
Now that Christmas is quickly approaching, there’s a lot of travel going on – and in many cases, if you haven’t yet booked your holiday travel, it’s going to get really (more) expensive, really fast.
Fortunately, there are solid ways to find pretty inexpensive travel through the New Year – though that’s not to say it’s always straightforward. A recent Wall Street Journal article suggests that Sundays are now the best day of the week to buy tickets, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re going to be significantly cheaper, especially if you’re buying within 7 or 14 days of travel.
