One way to find a great deal is to set up tracking for airline ticket prices. By setting up search parameters, the site will track deals and send an alert when a new or good deal pops up, with many telling you when they expect the rate to rise or how great a deal it is.

Many sites will also track other travel needs like hotels and car rentals, and some have blogs and tips to help with your search process and explain how they do theirs. While many sites are available on the internet and in apps, there are a handful that rise to the top.
