“Monday is a big booking day because people are fresh off the weekend so they book Monday. Airlines want to keep that business going so they tend to drop the prices on Tuesdays,” she said.

Another tip: clear the cookies on your computer while you search for tickets. Internet browsers track your activity online and may increase the price before you have the chance to book it. You can also pinch pennies on your luggage.

“The easiest way to save on bag fees is to prepay them, A lot of airlines offer a discount if you book and do that in advance when you’re checking in, versus at the airport itself,” Pavkov said.

Also, follow the airport and airline on social media and download their apps for updates on price changes.
