We automatically search 3 days before and after your search date to find you the best deals possible.

3. Pack light for cheap flights

Most airlines charge additional fees for bags on top of the price of the ticket, so traveling with just a small bag can save you $60 to $200 round-trip in checked bag fees. Be sure to look for the carry on and checked baggage icons when shopping on ScholarTrip to see what free luggage allowance is included with the price of your ticket.
