Today’s travel tip comes from Trish who blogs at FrenchKissedPostcards:
Anyone who has priced a trip repeatedly, back to back online, will likely have experienced the “your price has gone up since your initial search” message. We’ve experienced this a couple of times and the price jump wasn’t just $20-$30 – it was several hundred! These sites follow your attempts at booking and depending on how close you are to actually hitting the “pay” button, the price will vary. To get around this, we browse travel websites using Google Chrome’s “incognito” feature. By going “incognito”, the site won’t track your browsing history so the prices won’t fluctuate based on it.
Don’t use Google Chrome? Don’t worry! All browsers actually have an incognito or private mode. If you don’t know how to set up your browser for private browsing, you can find instructions here.
