Saving Cash on Travel Series: (Article 3/4)

Ever buy an airline ticket only to watch the price slide after you have already been locked in? Or more than likely waited too long only to have OPEC give you a present in the form of an inflated ticket price?

This website is in Beta still but may be helpful for those of you out there on the fence about whether to buy a ticket now or later. FareCast lets you type in where you are going and when, then will predict based on a bunch of factors (some historical some current). The site will guess how much the fare will go up or down in the next seven days and give you a confidence rating. It is quick and easy to use and probably worth if you are in the market for a ticket.
