Step 1 – Go Incognito:

When you repeatedly search for a destination on your browser, you notice very often that prices go up, right? Well that’s because your browser’s cookies take you to the websites that want to make you buy a ticket before it gets even more expensive. Therefore, always search for flights in incognito or private browsing mode. If you want to perform another search, close all tabs and windows and open again in incognito.


Step 2 – Choose buses over trains :

Willer Express offers a $100 pass for 3 trips and a $150 pass for 5 trips that can be used within two months but NOT consecutively. The advantage of overnight buses is that you can save on accomodation.
