Saving on travel is all about flexibility, says the anonymous editor-in-chief of the luxury travel site Andrew Harper. He told Lifehacker about a few reliable ways to watch for discounts on luxury travel, one of which will make you feel like a complete master of the universe, which you already know because we spoiled it in the headline.
The editor endorses the usual tactics: Get the Chase Sapphire Preferred card to earn points. Travel in the “shoulder season” on either side of the peak season (in the Caribbean, he says, prices drop over half from peak to shoulder). Keep your dates flexible, and look for flights in the middle of the week. He loves the trend of “premium economy” seats on international flights.
