COMMUTES ARE GETTING A LITTLE LONGER HERE. ACCORDING TO AAA, WE ARE DRIVING THE SAME AMOUNT OF MILES. WE ARE FEELING IT EVERY DAY. THANK YOU FOR THE LIVE UPDATE. SHE’S NOT THE ONLY ONE, SO HOW CAN YOU CASH IN ON THESE CRAZY CHEAP FLIGHTS? CBS4 FRANCIS WANG REVEALS THE SECRET. BETWEEN $300, $400. TOKYO FROM MIAMI $614. Reporter: THAT’S JUST A FEW OF THE CHEAP FLIGHT ALERTS CHRISTINA GINIAN RECEIVED THIS WEEK. I’LL PROBABLY BUY THE ONE TO ECUADOR AFTER YOU LEAVE BECAUSE THAT ONE, THE ECUADOR ONE, I’LL TELL YOU EXACTLY HOW MUCH FROM FORT LAUDERDALE, $299 ROUND TRIP. Reporter: CHRISTINA IS A FORMER MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACH CHORE HOME SCHOOLS HER DAUGHTER, NATALIE. ALREADY WELL TRAVELED AT JUST 10 YEARS OLD. INTERNATIONALLY NATALIE HAS BEEN TO ROME, LONDON, PARIS. THEY’RE NOT EXTREMELY WEALTHY AND NO THEY ARE NOT IN A TON OF TRAVEL DEBT, BUT IT DOES TAKE TIME, FLEXIBILITY, AND PATIENCE. I CAN TEACH HER ABOUT PICASSO. WHEN I TOOK HER TO THE PICASSO MUSEUM IN BARCELONA. Reporter: SHE CALLS IT BUDGET TRAVEL AS PART OF THEIR OUTSIDE CLASSROOM. WE’RE FLYING TO SPAIN FOR $247 ROUND TRIP. Reporter: SAY THAT AGAIN? I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT. SHE FOUND THIS DEAL AS A PREMIUM MEMBER OF SCOTT’S CHEAP FLIGHTS. YES, THEY NOT ONLY EXIST, BUT THEY ARE ALSO COMPANIES THAT HELP YOU FIND THEM. FOUNDER SCOTT KEY STARTED AFTER HE EXPERIENCED THE HIGH OF GETTING A SUPER CHEAP FLIGHT HIMSELF. IT ALL CULMINATED IN 2013 WHEN I GOT THE BEST DEAL I HAD EVER GOTTEN IN MY LIFE, WHICH WAS NON-STOP FROM NEW YORK CITY TO MILAN FOR $130 ROUND TRIP. Reporter: SIX YEARS LATER HIS SERVICE NOW HAS 1.6 MILLION MEMBERS WORLDWIDE, WHO THEY ALL HAVE SAVED HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS ON A CHEAP FLIGHT. $30 A YEAR WILL GETOUT BEST DEALS, PRIORITY ALERTS, AND THE POT OF GOLD FROM AIRLINES WHEN THEY RELEASE A MISTAKE FARE. HERE ARE A FEW FREE TIPS. FIRST, DON’T PLAN VACATIONS BASED OFF OF LOCATION AND DATE. INSTEAD BASE IT OFF OF PRICE AND BE FLEXIBLE WITH LOCATION AND DATE. SECOND, REALIZE THAT THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY HAS CHANGED. DON’T DEPEND ON AIRLINES TO RELEASE CHEAP FLIGHTS ON SPECIFIC DAYS LIKE TUESDAY OR SATURDAY AFTERNOONS. AND THIRD DON’T WAIT LAST MINUTE THINKING FLIGHTS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT LOW STANDBY PRICES. THOSE ARE USUALLY JACKED UP NOW FOR BUSINESS TRAVELERS. AT LEAST A MONTH OR TWO IN ADVANCE. OFTEN AS LONG AS SIX TO EIGHT MONTHS IN ADVANCE IS REALLY WHEN YOU’RE GOING TO FIND THE BEST DEALS. THE GOOD NEWS FOR SOUTH FLORIDIANS, SCOTT SAYS WE ARE ONE OF THE TOP FIVE PLACES IN THE U.S. TO TRAVEL FROM WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING GOOD DEALS. WE FOUND ONE THE PAST FEW WEEKS GOING FROM $156 ROUND TRIP FROM MIAMI TO BRAZIL. IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT GETTING AWAY LATER THIS YEAR, HERE ARE A COUPLE OF INSIDE
