Airfares to Italy from North America
How to find the cheapest plane tickets every time to fly to Italy from the U.S.
Reid's shortcut to the best fares
All of the airfare hunting techniques mentioned on this site have merit, but, honestly, if I had to narrow it down to two crucial places to check, they would be:
1) The aggregator Momondo
2) The consolidator AutoEurope
Nine times out of ten, I end up booking my plane tickets to Italy through one of those methods.I go into much more detail on all of these methods on the "Saving money on airfare to Italy" page, but in brief:
- Know where the deals are (E-savers; fare alerts; deals newsletters)
- Know that timing is everything (high season is summer, X-mas; buy 6–8 weeks out; be flexible)
- Don't pay retail (airfare aggregators; wholesale consolidators; Priceline & Hotwire - bidding & opaque fares)
- Deploy insider secrets (vacation packages; frequent flier miles; the Big Ben Switcheroo)
