You could use up your vacation searching for the cheapest possible airline ticket, but don't bother. Airlines won't give their seats away. If there's a deal to be had, you can probably pinpoint it on the Internet in less than 30 minutes. Here are some tips to get you started.

1. KNOW WHEN TO SHOP.

It's not just a matter of avoiding holidays, when fares typically rise. Airlines offer the deepest discounts if you book at least two weeks in advance. After that, ticket prices soar because business travelers with more cash to spend often take off on short notice.


2. COMPARE FARES.

Type in your itinerary on the three major travel Web sites: Expedia , Travelocity , and Orbitz . You can also download a search application called SideStep by clicking on www.kayak.com (for PC users only), which will launch simultaneously in a separate window. It's an efficient way to scour several airline sites quickly. Although you won't find every airline - Southwest , for example, is never a player - you'll get a good idea of which carrier offers the lowest fare for your trip.


3. CHECK THE AIRLINE SITE.

It may offer an even lower fare or other incentives, such as bonus miles.


4. BE FLEXIBLE.

The major travel Web sites sometimes offer bigger discounts if you can tweak your travel schedule (a Saturday night stay, for example, or a red-eye flight). Sometimes, they also "bundle" prices with cheap hotels.


5. CROSS-CHECK THE OPTIONS.

Hotwire - http://www.retailmenot.com/view/hotwire.com and Priceline.com offer what are known as "opaque" fares: tells you the price but not the carrier or itinerary. Priceline.com asks you to bid on a ticket. They're likely to offer the lowest fares if you don't care about collecting miles and have no airline preference. But it you don't pay attention, you could end up scheduled to fly in or out of an airport you didn't bank on.


6. GIVE YOURSELF A REALITY CHECK.

All things being equal, you're probably better off booking through an airline Web site. The carrier won't charge you a booking fee (as most travel sites do), you're sure of the airline, and you might earn bonus miles, too.


7. BUY YOUR TICKET.

But before clicking the "book" button, remember that dot coms and airlines charge more for paper tickets than for E-tickets. Discounted tickets are usually not refundable and cost $100 to change. And make sure you've spelled your name correctly. If it doesn't match your ID, you may have to buy a new ticket at the airport.
