Split ticketing is a powerful and exciting strategy that will allow you to save money, fly on preferred airlines, and create stopovers. Here are some suggestions for utilizing this air ticketing ploy.
Check for flights to South America and Central America through Miami, Los Angeles, or New York.
Flights to Asia and Australia through Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Flights to Hawaii through Los Angeles airports (check them all), San Francisco (Oakland and San Jose also), Seattle, and Las Vegas.
Flights to Europe through New York.
Always check around for the cheapest fares from other cities. There may be incredible fares between Chicago and South America or Atlanta and Hawaii. You really never know. Two good sources are Air-fare.com and Kayak's Buzz feature.
