If you’ve found it increasingly difficult to lock in cheap airfare this holiday season, you’re not alone. The average domestic airfare is $414, up nine percent year-over-year and up nearly six percent for international airfare at an average of $990.  But while the numbers don’t lie, there are still some popular routes that are coming in well below the national average, like Los Angeles to Denver ($312) and South Florida to New York City ($272).  All is not lost, my friends.

No matter where you’re travelling this holiday season, the secret to savings is flexibility. Check out this infographic for more tips on holiday travel.
