It's going to be a busy travel weekend coming up with many in the valley flying out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday but that doesn't mean breaking the bank.
Travelers can save a little extra money by booking a flight or traveling from Nov. 16-20, according to travel experts.
Also, flying to a destination on Thanksgiving Day can save hundreds off the price before or after the holiday.
A few more tips include setting a fair alert on various travel websites, check alternative airports and compare direct routes with connections.
Travelers can also add a stop to a flight, making for longer travel, but providing another cost-saving measure.
Plus, hold off on buying a return flight, if possible, as tickets are usually cheaper on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
Finally, pack light when flying. Most airlines don't charge for carry-on bags.
