If you’re like me, sometimes you just want to get away. The “Where” isn’t super important — as long as there’s a deal to be had. With the USA Today reporting that summer airfare is on the rise and likely to go up further, it’s important now more than ever to have the most possible information available to you to make an informed decision about travel.

For more of the same high-quality flight deals and easy-to-use Low Fare Calendars, I put together a list of four different ways to stay in the know using Fly.com and other tools.

1. Follow @Fly_com and Your City’s Fare Alert Feed on Twitter

Our goal is not to spam our followers with 50 unnecessary and irrelevant tweets per day. Instead, we spend our time scouring the web for the best fares we can find and only blast them out to our users when they truly make the cut. Here are some examples of our latest finds: 

The best way to get the most relevant flight deals is to follow one of our city-specific fare alert feeds. We have 30 feeds that cover many of the major cities/airports in the United States. Find the city nearest you and subscribe for geo-targeted fare alerts:

3. Sign up for Travelzoo Top 20 and Newsflash

Our parent company Travelzoo got into the travel business more than a decade ago. Their tireless pursuit of the ultimate travel bargain has made them one of the most-trusted deal publishers on the planet. Each Wednesday they send out a Top 20 deals newsletter with hand-picked offers to more than 25 million subscribers worldwide. The discounts don’t only come on Wednesday, though. The deal experts will publish a Newsflash email alert any time an offer is worthy enough to interrupt your busy day (like the $150 fare from NYC to Sweden I booked last year!). Fly.com is featured in both email products, but only the best of the best make it, so pay close attention.

It is FREE to subscribe and most deals are exclusively available for those who sign up.
