Alabama is home to 180 airports. One of the best cheap flight ticket strategies is to travel between major cities, and to purchase your ticket on Priceline.com at least two weeks in advance.
Taking advantage of Priceline's promotional features can lower your airfare to about the cost of a round trip bus ride.
Simply visit priceline, search your desired dates and destination, then click the "Name Your Own Price" option. Doing this can save you up to 40 percent on your flight.
Beware that certain rules apply to naming your own price on priceline.
For example, no changes can be made to your itinerary, and no part of your payment can be refunded.
For maximum savings, book your cheap flight ticket at least two weeks in advance.
Also, compare prices for all major airports accessible from your area. For example, it is at this time about fifty dollars cheaper to land in Huntsville or in Birmingham than it is to arrive in Montgomery.
Or you can touch down in Atlanta for even less money, and take Greyhound or Trailways to your Alabama destination.
