FareCompare CEO Rick Seaney shares FareCompare How-to-Shop expert travel advice for Summer 2010:

-          Don’t procrastinate. Last year procrastinators were rewarded with flight deals at the last minute. This year, prices are climbing and those last minute deals fewer and far between

-          Avoid the peak travel surcharge – be flexible with your travel dates. Last Thanksgiving, the airlines began charging a ‘surcharge’ for travelers flying on some of the busiest dates of travel, including dates around Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day. Shop using FareCompare’s When-to-Fly calendars to compare prices easily and find cheap flights.

-          Fly Cheapest Days and Times – Airfare varies depending on the day and times you fly – Wednesday early morning flights are usually cheapest.
