You Can Save on Airfare (If You Know the Tricks).
How many posts about booking cheap flights have you seen? If you’ve been wandering around the web in the past few years, chances are you stumbled into quite a few. You know what the problem is? If you read one, you read them all. Most of the posts out there are basically copy/pasted, paraphrased versions of the same basic, non-practical stuff. That’s why I finally decided enough is enough, and decided to compile a real, comprehensive & practical go-to-guide for booking the cheapest flights out there. Instead of desperately searching for ways to get cheap flights, all you’ll ever need is this guide right here.

Back in June, Avis had a promotion offering 5000 EuroBonus miles per rental. What made this offer so special was that the terms and conditions clearly specified that it was valid for rentals of any length. Too good to be true? I tested it out during a layover in Copenhagen, renting a €49 car, circling the airport a bit, and returning it. Sure enough, I was rewarded with 5000 EuroBonus miles. The challenge was on!
