Spend Five Extra Seconds When Booking Airfare

Clearing your browser's cache—or surfing the web in incognito mode—could help you snag better deals on travel. Insiders told Bargain Fever author Mark Ellwood that some companies use cookies to track your visits, so your airfare (or hotel or rental car bids) could go up with each additional search. "It's like going to a bazaar and going back to look at the same rug four times. The owner knows you're interested," he explains.

Searching on different devices could also save you money: On a desktop, a search for a two-night stay at a Kansas hotel came to $122 per night. On mobile, the same stay was offered for $89.50 for the first night, $94.50 for the second (total savings for a three-minute price check: $60).
