As a huge travel fan, I'm always on the lookout for great deals to save money on costs like hotel rooms, rental cars and airfare. This is one I haven't heard before, and it's ingeniously simple. You might actually be able to save big on international plane tickets by using a different website to trick the airline into thinking you're from a different country.

Not all airfare is created equal. In fact, foreign airlines might have different deals or rates available to flyers in their home country. Most airlines have separate webpages designed for each country it serves. To take advantage of these deals, all you have to do is visit the website for the airline's home country and compare rates.

For example, if you're planning a trip to Paris on Air France. You'd want to visit Air France's French homepage to check out rates.

Don't worry, you can still set English as the language on most airline sites, so you won't have to try and read French to check in on potential deals.
