Episode 3 – Skiplagged

A couple days ago, I was trying to finalize our final travel plans to Atlanta, Augusta (Masters Golf Tournament), and Charlestown. The last thing I needed was a short flight from Charlestown to Atlanta, pretty easy right?

Turns out, Delta loves to just raise the prices on flight routes that they have a monopoly on. Well, thats where Skiplagged.com comes in. This site uses an unorthodox way for search for a flight. I was able to save almost $300 on my one way short flight by booking a trip to DC that fly’s through Atlanta…GENIUS!!! Nothing better of a feeling of a big company (Delta) trying to screw you and getting the last laugh!

Check them out here: www.skiplagged.com

Have a great weekend~
welcome to dapper traveler today we're talking about skipped lagged skip lag is a website app that performs a unique search for flights there's nothing more frustrating than getting online trying to book a flight and expecting a price of 150 bucks and finding out the airline is jacked up to 400 because they have a pretty much a monopoly on that city incredibly frustrating because you know that that flight should never cost that much it hat just happened to me I was trying to book a Delta flight from Charleston to Atlanta and they were one to charge me three hundred and eighty dollars one way which is just absolutely ridiculous because that's an hour flight and should not cost that much skip lagged however gives you kind of a way around that so instead of having to pay three hundred eighty for the exact same flight I was able to pay a hundred and fifteen dollars using them isn't perfect because there are some drawbacks to using the service but you definitely saved some money we're gonna show you how and why next [Applause] [Applause] so by this point everyone should be pretty familiar with this setup if you live in Chicago more than live you fly United and every flight goes through United or that area if you live in the South more than likely you're flying Delta and everything is going with the red lamp so how skip like just takes advantage of it does not every flight is priced equal so for instance in my case I just wanted a flight from Charleston to Italy it's a short flight it's only 500 miles actually I think it's less than it's only a four and a half hour drive definitely so 400 it's a four and a half hour drive to get there it's about an hour and 15 minutes flight and you know that the majority of that is taxing on runways probably waiting just waiting in the air waiting to land Atlantis so it's really not that long a flight but Delta has the monopoly on Atlanta so it's frustrating that all of these flights go in there and yet why is it so expensive to just get a direct flight from Charleston to Atlanta that's where skip black comes in because skip flag is gonna look at just getting you to Atlanta someway somehow so for example it found that the cheapest flights for me was actually to book a flight from Charleston to DC and there must be some sort of price war going on or they might be introducing a new routes they're trying to get the market used to going to DC so there and there so they're doing promotional rates I don't know what it is but the rate to go to DC was $115 one-way and oh by the way that flight goes through Atlanta so you just look that flight and you get off in Atlanta you're not going to get on your flight to DC you're gonna skate Atlanta so now you're saying all right am I got it this makes complete sense I'm now gonna use skip flag wherever I go okay pump the brakes just a little bit because there are a couple things you need to know using one of them is is that it doesn't work everywhere thanks back it works in Atlanta because there's a lot of connections in Atlanta but if you are going the other direction Atlanta to Charleston there's not a lot of flights that go through Charleston on to somewhere else so you can't use Charleston as that that middleman to kind of cheat the system so it only works where there's airports that have connections obviously airports that have the more connections the more opportunities you're gonna have to find a lower flight so that's why we went through the list earlier of all the different hubs in each of the different airlines had because you're gonna have the better chance of finding some sort of promotional rates somewhere through those through those hubs because there's just more connections through so there's one more thing that you have to remember if you're using skip like everything you pack better go into a carry-on so think about it if the if the airline thinks that you're going like in my case if the airline thinks that I'm going to DC and not Atlanta then they're gonna check the bags all the way through good luck trying to convince the ticket agent check your bags just to Atlanta because the airlines have become quite savvy with the Skip flag method and they seriously frown upon that type of that type behavior so if your tickets to do you see that's where the luggage goes all right so overall you're gonna save a lot of money by using skip rag if it works for you that you don't mind checking your luggage and that you are going to an airport that's big enough that has connections so that the process will do you know what it's a free side you might as well check it every time different flights makes you flexible that way do it because you're gonna save a lot of money thanks for watching the video this is have any questions leave them down below if you like the video looks like if you don't like the video we'll just because I think I have why not and then of course as you know to Charleston as well and look forward to putting videos out there as well until then

If you’ve been watching airfares to get the best price on your summer vacation, travel experts say there is a web site you need to try, Liz Collin reports (3:17). WCCO 4 News At 10 – June 20, 2016
IT TO HIM. JUST EMAIL TO WWW.WCCO.COM/LINKS. WELL, IF YOU HAVE BEEN WATCHING AIRLINE FARES, WAITING FOR THE BEST PRICE FOR YOUR SUMMER VACATION, TRAVEL EXPERTS SAY IT IS A WEB SITE THAT YOU NEED TO TRY. THE WEB SITE EXPOSES THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY SECRETS TO FIND AIR FARES NOT FOUND ANYWHERE ELSE. ONE AIRLINE TRIED UNSUCCESSFULLY TO SUE THE WEB SITE'S FOUNDER TO STOP THE CONTROVERSIAL PRACTICE. WCCO'S LIZ COLIN DISCOVERED HOW SKIP LAG STARTS WITH WHAT IS CALLED THE HIDDEN CITY TRIP. WHEN I SAW IT, I WAS LIKE, THIS IS SUCH A GOOD IDEA. IT IS A LAST SIX MONTHS, SHE HAS TAKEN FIVE FLIGHTS TO VISIT FRIENDS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. IT MEANS A LOT. THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA SENIOR ALEX SORESON ALWAYS CHECKS ONE WEB SITE FIRST. IT IS JUST ALWAYS THE CHEAPEST. AN AIR FARE SEARCH ENGINE CALLED SKIP LEGS, THAT LOOKS LIKE ANY OTHER. NOT CONFUSING. SUPER EASY. USES HIDDEN CITY TICKETING, BOOKING FLIGHTS WITH A LAYOVER BUT USING THE LAYOVER CITY AS YOUR FINAL STOP. IT ONLY WORKS FOR ONE WAY TICKETS. AND YOU CAN'T CHECK A BAG. SAY A NONSTOP FARE FROM MSP TO LOS ANGELES IS $300 ONE WAY. BUT A FARE ON THE SAME AIRLINE FROM MSP WITH A STOP IN L.A. MIGHT BE $150. YOU BUY THE CHEAPER FLIGHT AND FORGO THE PLANE TO SAN FRANCISCO ALL TOGETHER. WHEN YOU GO TO BUY YOUR TICKET ON SKIP LEG, IT TAKES YOU DIRECTLY TO THE TRAVEL WEB SITE, OR AIRLINE, WHERE IT FOUND YOUR CHEAPEST FARE. YOU DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS SITE. I JUST FOUND A FLIGHT HERE, FROM MINNEAPOLIS TO CHICAGO, $34. WHEN IT COMES TO AIR FARE, COST DOESN'T ALWAYS CORRELATE WITH HOW MANY MILES YOU FLY. IN THE FREE TIME, A 22-YEAR-OLD COMPUTER WHIZ FIGURED THIS OUT AND DESIGNED SKIP LEG TO SKIRT THE SYSTEM. THE IDEA HERE IS THAT AIRLINES SET THEIR PRICES BASED ON SUPPLY AND DEMAND. AND NOT ON WHAT IT COSTS THEM. ON THE ART OF BEING CHEAP, ANDY PRESCOTT BLOGS ABOUT WAYS TO SAVE MONEY. WE ASKED HIM TO TEST SKIP LEG FOR MINNESOTA TRAVELERS. HE LOOKED UP ALL 10 OF THE VIKINGS AWAY GAMES FOR THIS SEASON, COMPARING ONE WAY PLANE FARE WITH ORBITZ. PRICES WERE THE SAME FOR THREE OF THE FLIGHTS. JUST $6 MORE EXPENSIVE ON ONE. BUT ON THE REMAINING SIX FLIGHTS, HE FOUND SAVINGS ON SKIP LAGGED. AND NEARLY A $200 DIFFERENCE FOR A CHARLOTTE FLIGHT. AND A $60 SAVINGS ON A FLIGHT TO SEATTLE. I WOULDN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT NOT CHECKING SKIP LAGGED. DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE OUTSMARTING THE AIRLINES IN A WAY? YES IT DOES AND I KIND OF LIKE THAT FEELING. WE DON'T FEEL LIKE THAT TOO OFTEN, DO WE? I USE SKIP LAGGED, FOR SAN DIEGO, AND CHARLESTON. AND IT REINFORCES WHAT ALEX ALREADY KNEW, THE WEB SITE EXPOSING A SECRET SHE HAS BEEN ANXIOUS TO SHARE. AND A CHEAP FLIGHT WHEN GOY TO SEATTLE IN JULY — WHEN GOY TO SEAT UNTIL JULY. — WHEN I GO TO SEATTLE IN JEWEL. THEY DON'T LIKE SEAT LAG AND THREATENS THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, AND THEY THREATEN TO STOP FREQUENT FLYER MILES IF THEY CATCH YOU IN THE ACT.

hey what's put on team it's Ritchie with techno solutions and in this video I'm going to be talking about how you can travel the world on a budget so for those that are not familiar with food is there my name is Ricky I run the largest YouTube channel for those two investment stock mark you've heard a browser on my youtube channel to become more familiar with my investment style in the stock market so let's go I think get started the reason that I'm making this video is because of the amounts of suggestions after talking about this with the learn plan profit group it's the group that I trade with live every single morning and a common question after I made the comment of guess how much I'm going to be able to travel to China for round trip this is not with any travel credit this is not with any special point based system credit card this is not with any type of sponsorship or any type of incentive due to my following this is something that anybody that is proactive within the series of applications that I'm going to talk about can experience I mean this is why I think it's so important to talk about because even if I say to you like let's say we get 10,000 people to watch this video which i think is very realistic 10,000 people right and we save you on average of 10 dollars the amount of money that the people watching this video the next time that you travel with these different series of websites that you guys can use that's the whole point of this you know not just just because you do well doesn't mean that you have to spent a ton of money there's nothing wrong with being a ball on a budget so let's go ahead and get started the first thing that I want to talk about is about flex that's usually what people do you ask one of the most expensive things in my experience traveling to Miami round set for less than a hundred dollars being able to travel to California round-trip for less than a hundred dollars being able to travel to New York round-trip for less than $100 all I use and this is because of my friends as well all we used to find good deals is just like you look on let go and offer up and Craig's List for good deals when it comes down to maybe like investment in cars or maybe trying to flip certain things on the side we do the same things when it comes down to traveling there's no question that you know a very common and very favorable past time that a lot of people enjoy is traveling so why not do it effectively I use app applications and again in no way is this video sponsored there's not gonna be no links you guessed and feel free to you know use these applications or not use them but it's Google flights I'm not too sure if you guys are familiar with that literally Google it Google flights this is one of them favorite tools when it comes down to being able to identify what dates I want to travel the most effectively when it comes down to cost and what I mean by this is Google flights has a tool as you guys can see in my screen that allows you to adjust the dates that you leave and the dates that you land and the really cool thing about this tool is it gives you this calendar format that tells you according to the day that you leave and according to the day that you land what your overall flight cost will be this makes it super effective to be aware of the other dates for potential departures and for potential arrivals that can adjust your price the perfect example that I can give you is when we were using this specific tool to plan our trip to China our trip was ranging anywhere from the 367 dollars that we were able to purchase the trip for round-trip from Phoenix right because I'm in Arizona not driving and flying to LAX and then taking off to China but literally from Phoenix International Airport to China and I had to go and adjust those series of dates and it literally took me like 5 to 10 minutes to find dates that best accommodated my specific kind of schedule again this could be very in a sense just beneficial for someone that wants to plan out a trip 2 or 3 months in advance you can first identify what dates are most affordable based on you know this is this Google tool that you can use and and see what dates you want to take off that are the cheapest and what dates you want to you know arrive that are the cheapest according to your schedule and then you can let your work now two weeks ahead of time a month ahead of time two months ahead of time and let all your friends know that you want to travel with that hey these are the dates that would be most affordable these are the dates that we're going to leave and now this can accommodate our specific works gentle it's a beautiful tool and it's something that I find the most beneficial on the Google flight platform yet other than that I personally like to use kayak kayak is an application on my phone that I can put hotels action book flights I never put car rentals do that but the really cool thing about this is that it allows me to be able to see and very easily from my phone different flies and then on specific dates and highlight certain things with a little like green dot that lets me know that those specific dates are good tools one little thing that I try to do is just to make sure that I'm doing the best deal I first tried round trip to see when's the best time to like leave and arrive so again the two platforms that I use when it comes down to booking my specific flights are Google flights now I do that calendar format and also kayak which is the application that I use on my phone this there's also this application that I want to talk about on my most recent trip and again feel free to use it according to like your own terms it's called stippling and it's actually an idea that my friend Caleb came up with that we were going to create ourselves but we actually saw that it already existed they received this huge backlash which is in pretty much a ditch some of your connecting flights and again this is up to you if you guys want to do it but my trip that I recently took to visit California was going to be $552 round-trip from Phoenix to LAX the next day come back from you know LAX back to Phoenix stip liked booked me a trip from Phoenix that a layover in LAX but its final destination was Canada so what that meant was that I would fly to LAX and I would pretty much just ditch the second flight which obviously was to Canada and by being able to do that that flight from you know Phoenix LAX was only a hundred and two dollars now on my way back there was a flight on my way back from LAX to Dallas but it had a layover in Phoenix the beautiful thing about that is that again that flight cost me $77 so altogether I was able to take that trip round-trip for $180 cut my cost in half less than half right and then save all that money and again there's no reason just because you do well that you have to spend a lot of money there are some certain things that you have to be aware of when it comes down to skip light that it's a little bit difficult to kind of like book your flights and you also sometimes need to take your passport if you're going to be like you know like my first flight was going to Canada they make you checked in with a password that's something that you have to also be aware of and also if you're gonna check-in luggage you can't really check it in because we're gonna try to ship it to your final destination and guess what you're gonna be ditching that second flight or the third flight or whatever it is to get to where it is that you want to do so again I always just travel very light with a backpack so again it accommodates my specific lifestyle so those are the three platforms that I would encourage for you to explore if you don't like them then again feel free to share your own opinion down in the comment section but I just wanted to make sure that you guys were aware that those specific applications were out there the second thing that I want to talk about are the hotels so from my people that don't care about exactly where you stay and all you want is the best deal possible there's a feature within hotels calm and again this is not sponsored this is because I'm super frugal when I stayed in Virginia when I went to go visit a couple friends out there I wanted I didn't really care what it where it was that I was staying because it just did not matter to me and again that's the type of like position that I was in I know that this is not for everybody because sometimes you need to stay in this specific position or specific area it would give me a general area of where this hotel is going to be and the rated number of stars at this hotel and what it had to offer it did not tell me what Hotel is going to be all it told me was that these hotels normally sell for 159 and I could get it for $60 a night again it's a feature that called hot deals with in the hotel's comm platform again if you don't care about the area as long as it gives you this general area you're alright with the premise or the perimeter that it gives you and again that's something I could accommodate your lifestyle and really cut your expenses in half the other thing that I want to talk about is I like to use kayak and I like to use Airbnb for my travel on my trip to China we explored the different options for hotels calm we explored the different options for kayak but the best deals because we're traveling with five people Airbnb it's what worked best for that specific travel and again this is not something that's always going to be like a perfect road map for you because there's a lot of times that I have to bug it either through hotels.com or through Airbnb because of the kind of position that I'm putting if I'm there for a meeting I mean I have to be in a specific area then I want to make sure that I have really good Wi-Fi and I'm not sitting at a random person's house and not and become unfamiliar with kind of the amenities that it's going to include again if you have more specific type of things that you're going to want at your state and hotels are obviously you know the best alternative but if you're a little bit more relaxed and you don't mind staying with a couple of friends in a three-bedroom you know Airbnb and then it obviously makes sense just to put into perspective because five of us are doing and we're going to be going for seven days so we ended up booking a series of trips our first stop is to went to be Shanghai then we're going to be visiting Beijing and then we're gonna go back to Shanghai within those three destinations and the number of dates that were going to be staying in China per person it was under a hundred and twenty dollars so he has to do the math again it's five of us and were able to split the cost effectively and efficiently that accommodates our travel oh yeah now just recapping the three platforms that I talked about where hotels comm kayak and Airbnb again there's so many different platforms out there that you could become more familiar with that I would encourage you to explore if you have anything that you want to share again about what are the best applications or stop for us to use to find good areas to stay up you're free to comment down in the comment section now the last thing that I want to talk about the reason that I'm making this video is you don't have to spend always a ton of money B just because you do well and you want to travel I think one of the most beautiful things that we like to empower our following here in the tech book Solutions YouTube channel my youtube channel is that there's nothing wrong with being a baller on a budget and what I mean by that I'm just trying to make you guys laugh but it's really just empowering people to be proactive and to find good deals you work really hard for your money so why not just dedicate a little bit more time and effort and planning against something that normally not a lot of people do to save some money especially if you're gonna be traveling with friends family or just for fun one of the things again I wanted to give both options sometimes I have to travel for business and it's very short notice and I have to in a sense book somewhat more pricey flights and yes that sucks but when it comes down to something that's premeditated and planned why not just dedicate a little bit more time to prepare in advance right and make sure that you get the best deal possible you're aware of now how to book your flights how to book your hotels and how to have fun in the different areas in which that you can visit it just takes a little bit more time a little bit more planning to be a baller on a budget so again thank you guys again so much for watching this video I hope that it's a minimum I hope that this video save each and every single one of you $10 if you guys are looking forward to traveling this 2019 please give this video a thumbs up we really

Airfares seem to keep climbing, but a 22-year-old computer whiz found a way to save hundreds of dollars on airline tickets. With a few clicks of the mouse, Skiplagged can help find what’s called “hidden city” airfares, CBS News’ Michelle Miller reports.

With little more than a mattress on the floor, Aktarer Zaman’s tiny New York apartment serves as the hub of Skiplagged’s operations.

The name, while unique, wasn’t his own idea.

“It was my little sister. I came up with a real terrible name I am not going to say,” he said. “I was baking cookies but like in cupcake cups, so just for a temporary name I called it Cup Cookies.”

Fortunately for Zaman, the Skiplagged name stuck. Now up to 200,000 users visit his site each day, many of them looking for hidden city tickets.

It works like this: A traveler looking to fly from Newark to Miami might find it’s actually cheaper to buy a ticket to Charleston with a stopover in Miami.

At the time, the direct flight was $541 while the Skiplagged route was $325.

Yahoo Travel Executive Editor Laura Begley Bloom said hidden-city ticketing has been around for years.

“This has been a dirty little secret of the travel industry for a really long time,” Bloom said. “Then along came Skiplagged, and your average traveler suddenly knew about it.”

It only works with one-way tickets and no checked bags. And while it’s not illegal to fly this way, most airlines prohibit it.

“Think about it; they could have flown you at a higher rate into that middle city and then booked somebody for that next leg too, so it’s a revenue loss for them. If they catch you on it, they say that they’ll freeze your frequent flier miles,” Bloom said. “They might not let you book tickets in the future; they might not let you take a return flight. It’s really pretty threatening.”

In a federal lawsuit filed last month, United Airlines, one of the world’s largest carriers, and Orbitz, said, “Zaman has intentionally and maliciously used Skiplagged to damage [their] businesses.”

Zaman insisted his site only provides information and does not actually book tickets.

Orbitz calls that “disingenuous.” United told “CBS This Morning” it was trying to “protect the vast majority of customers who buy legitimate tickets.”

“I haven’t made any money from this,” Zaman said. “This is privately funded through my own funds.”

Those funds, Zaman said, are now running low, so he’s asking for donations to help him get through the unfriendly skies ahead.
