This One Simple Trick Can Save You Hundreds Of Dollars On Flights This Summer

If you didn't know about Kayak before today, you were already travelling wrong, but don't worry, this is a judgement free article. 

When I lived in Thailand, Kayak was always the first place I'd go to look for cheap flight deals (yes, that was a humble-brag,  but remember: judgement free article).

Well, in true Kayak style, they've justs released a list of the best possible destinations to take advantage of a "Hacker Fare."

What's a Hacker Fare, you ask? Well, that's why you've been booking flights wrong all along.

A Hacker Fare is the best way to save money on flights to popular travel destinations by booking one-way flights instead of roundtrips. 

As Kayak describes it, it's kinda like buying two appetizers instead of an entree, being stuffed at the end and still spending less than your friend who got the steak. Sweet.

In particular, flights to Europe stand to be significantly discounted if you go the Hacker Fare route. Here are some of the destinations with the best savings when you book two one-way flights instead of a round-trip.

Lisbon, Portugal
