Airfare Search Trick: Remain LowKey

When Booking Flights, Always Stay Low Key and Undetected


Secrecy is the action of keeping something secret or the state of being kept secret

There are several factors that cause flight prices to fluctuate, search mode is a big one. When searching for flights, always search in a secret tab, private browser or incognito mode. This action will hide your search history and make you look like a new user each time you visit that website or search engine, in turn, possibly getting yourself a lower price. Those moments that you search for a flight a few times, find a decent price, take a moment to think about it, come back to it and it's a different price. They don't happen by chance! Search engines use an algorithm that provides different results based on your cookies and repeated searches. Therefore, prices are likely to change when flights are repeatedly searched. Always search for flights in a secret tab or incognito mode.


In Google Chrome, incognito is enabled by hitting the 3 vertical lines/dot menu icon and selecting 'New incognito window' or using keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + N. To launch in Internet Explorer, click Settings > Safety > InPrivate Browsing or hit Ctrl + Shift + P. For Mozilla Firefox, click Settings > New Private Window or Ctrl + Shift + P. This will open a new browser window where your information is not tracked, thus not inflating prices as you search.



In similarity to regular searches, you would need to close all incognito tabs and start over in a new incognito window to complete a new search. This keeps the cookies and saved information from storing on your computer.


Happy Searching and Saving!
