5 Google Flights secrets you never knew

If you're going on vacation, there's a good chance you're going to fly. It's still the fastest way to go long distances, at least until Elon Musk comes through with a finished Hyperloop, or Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic gets sub-orbital shuttle rockets up and running.

Unfortunately, flying is expensive. That's why people go to great lengths to get the cheapest flight possible. And there are plenty of rules that make it possible to save big.

Book your flight early and make sure you're buying on the right day of the week. Make sure you fly on a day and at a time that traditionally costs less. You can also find out which airline has the cheapest tickets. Click here for more information on the best days and times to buy and fly.

Of course, trying to bring those rules together to save can drive you insane. That's why you need some helpful tools that do the heavy lifting for you.

One of the top flight search sites is Google Flights (it used to be called Google Flight Search). Just like any other search site, Google Flights lets you quickly find and compare flights between airports on certain days.

However, if that's all you use it to do, you're missing out. There are some amazing features built in that make planning that vacation so much easier.
