Learn Smart Ways to Buy Cheap Airline Tickets -- If you're like us, nearly every airplane trip involves hours spent searching the Web to find a good deal, only to end up paying more than you wanted or feeling that the money you saved wasn't worth the time and aggravation. To avoid this problem next time, check out the updated version of Sam Sellers's "Take Control of Booking a Cheap Airline Ticket," a 148-page ebook that helps you efficiently navigate the maze of travel-related sites in order to find the best deal without wasting a lot of time.

We just released version 1.1 of the ebook, which now includes detailed information on when and how to use Farecast to book U.S. domestic flights. Farecast, though still in beta, was rated by Popular Science as being among the best of what's new in 2006, and the site received similar accolades from Frommers.com, PC World, Time Magazine, and Business Week. The ebook covers international and domestic flights originating in the United States.

Updates are free for current owners of the ebook; click the Check for Updates button on the first page of the ebook to access the free update.
