1.Airports have very high prices for botteled water, bring an empty water bottle in your carry on bag. You can fill it after you exit security.

2.Airlines and travel sites use cookies to track your visit, which can cause the prices to increase the more you search. You will get better deals if you browse for flights incognito mode.

3.Ditch the carry-on and invest in a travel jacket or cargo pants. Those pockets can hold most of your carry-on essentials.
