    Im flying a lott and this is what worked best for me.

    Optifly.com for finding lowcost airlines that kayak won't find. Be flexible with time. Sometimes booking a flight within a few days that you want to go is a great option, sometimes booking far ahead is better. Checking multiple airports in your neighbourhood. Can save you a few 100$. Checking more airports at your destination. For example you wanna fly to Bangkok, also check Kuala lumpur, singapore and hanoi for example!

    Goood Luck!!! And one more tip if you can have a direct flight or 1 stopover and your flight is direct 10 hours and with a cheapass flight with 2 stopovers 24 hours, consider this as a big pain in the ass....

    Flexibility is everything. Just finished helping a friend book a flight. Moving the flight by one day and selecting the right time of the day dropped the price by 60%. It's all about yield with airlines. If a flight is almost sold out and they know through history that they'll make more sales yet they jack the price way up. If the flight is empty the price drops.

    for me.. www.skyscanner.net it's AWESOME!

    During the summer I managed to get tickets from London to Pisa, Italy for £29 return, 1 week before the flight date. Was cheaper to go to Italy than it was to go home!! :p (London - Cambridge). I wanted to go to Italy, but wasn't sure where, or when, skyscanner recommended me "change dates to save £xxx" and "change airport to save £xxx"... click on those links and instead of paying £300, I paid £29 ;)

    Was a great holiday :)
