If you're flying there are still some ways to save cash.

AAA recommends you fly the Monday before the Thanksgiving travel rush. Tickets are cheaper then. Or if you're willing to you can fly out on the actual holiday.

Also, look for smaller airports outside of a big city, those tickets are typically cheaper too.
