Tricks of the trade to get the best deal on airfares

Air travel is getting more difficult—with different carriers pinching your comfort in seat sizes, as well as your pocketbook.

Airlines are now trying to squeeze more money out of you by charging more for tickets based on your location.

Travel Expert Zach Burau, founder of Wanderift, the first airline travel membership, said virtual private networks, or VPN, allows you to choose the location from where you’re flying.

“Using a VPN and that kind of tricks the network into thinking you could be in another location where the airline would think that the price would be lower,” said Burau.

He said the price difference isn't a lot of money, but it's worth enough to check it out.

“The airline’s margins are so thin on tickets, so they’re trying to squeeze as much as they can out of that ticket. They’re in a little of a tough spot, too,” said Burau.

He adds always check on different Web browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer. Safari tends to offer the most expensive tickets.
