Finding Last Minute Fare Specials

All of the legacy carriers in the U.S.--United, U.S. Airways, American, Delta, Northwest, Continental, and Alaska Air--offer last minute fare specials for the weekends, which are called "e-fares", "e-savers", or other names depending on the airline. The airlines offer these reduced rates to fill flights that are coming up on the weekend below their optimal bookings, so the city pairs that are offered change each week.

Instead of visiting each carrier's site to see what options are available, try the Last Minute Airfare tool on SmarterTravel.com, which lets you find fares based on an origin city, a destination city, or a preferred airline. It's simple and quick.
