Everyone wants a deal on airfares. The March issue of Travel + Leisure tells you how:

Look for fares after midnight, when airlines reload their computers with discounted fares that were reserved but never paid for. If you want a getaway for the coming weekend, look between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, but be prepared for getting the best deals on a Saturday-Monday round-trip rather than Friday-Sunday.

Compare prices for different dates. Travel + Leisure recommends Travelocity and Orbitz as having among the most flexible search functions, allowing you to search for lowest prices at various times.

Use aggregator sites like Mobissimo, Kayak and Qixo, which combine data on cheap flights from different sources.

Book award tickets early and online. Most airlines reserve only a tiny percentage of seats for frequent-flyer rewards, and most of these seats are set aside 330 days in advance. Also, many airlines charge higher fees to book award travel by phone or in person than paid travel.

If the same fare is available from a travel site like Orbitz and from an airline, Travel+Leisure recommends booking through the airline's website to avoid service fees.
