Traveling is a big thing these days, and we all want to find cheap flights. Fortunately, there are a few websites and tools to use, to do so. These are, in no particular order: Google Flights, ITA Matrix, Chase Ultimate Rewards Travel Center, Southwest.com, Wikipedia (to search for destination info and airports nearby), and Twitter (to look for deals as soon as they’re discovered). Also, remember to use the right credit card to leverage and accrue points, and remember, finding the right airfare is more an art than a science.
