How to Find and Book Mistake & Low Fares

If you’re passionate about Big Travel with Small Money, you’ve learned how to use miles and points to travel for free (or really cheap).  But did you know sometimes the best deals for flights are paid tickets?

On occasion, airlines will mess up and publish low or mistake fares which are hundreds or even thousands of dollars below the normal cost of a ticket.  And sometimes, they’ll purposely release a small number of ultra-low fares as a promotion or to win new business.  This can often start a fare war between airlines as they try to match or beat the lowest fare on a certain route.

How To Find And Book Mistake & Low Fares

You Can Benefit From Mistake Fares, Ultra-Low Fares, and Fare Wars

The trick to getting these low fares is knowing where to look.  And because they don’t often last for very long (sometimes for a few hours!) you’ll need to book quickly before the fare disappears.

It’s much more common to find low fares or fare wars than mistake fares.  And you have to be flexible with your travel dates and destinations.  But I’ll show you how to find and book them!

Fly to Europe This Winter for 35,000 Miles (or Less!)

Disclosure:  We get a commission for links on the blog.  You don’t have to use our links, but we’re very grateful when you do.  American Express is a Million Mile Secrets advertising partner.  Here’s our Advertiser Disclosure.

If you’re thinking about traveling to Europe this winter, you can get a very good deal with US Airways off-peak award tickets.  Between January 15, 2015, and February 28, 2015, it only costs 35,000 miles round-trip in coach class to fly from North America (including Hawaii) to Europe.

Normally, a low-level award ticket on these routes costs 60,000 miles, so this is a great deal!  And because it’s off-peak season, you can often find great deals on European hotels, tours, and attractions too.

You might be able to take vacation days surrounding Presidents Day (February 16, 2015) for a romantic European Valentine’s Day!

You Could Fly to Europe This Winter for Just 35,000 Miles (or Less) Round-Trip

But I’ll show you how to get there for even fewer miles if you have the right credit card!
