We've been doing this for years, so we know a couple ways to snag the best price on your flight to Los Angeles. You'll make spending less look so very good with a little know-how.

What is the best day of the week to book a flight?

With the right attitude and flexibility, you can fly for less. Below are the cheapest days to fly:

What's the Saturday night stay rule?

Can you save while traveling during the off-peak season?

There's good reason that many people travel during certain times of the year -- they want to enjoy incredible weather. For example, Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are big hits in the summer. Popular Spring Break destinations are New Orleans, California, and Florida. Feeling the bitter cold? Well, the Caribbean Islands and Mexico can warm you up. Unless you're a ski bum -- then places like Colorado will be your winter wonderland. During fall, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and New England draw visitors. If you can plan your trip around these peak seasons, you'll not only save money, but you'll typically avoid the crowds. Win-win in our books.
