(NEW YORK) -- Major airlines have raised their fares at least six times this year. But with the price of fuel falling, travelers may begin to see new discounts in time for the fall.
If you can, delay your travel plans until after Labor Day to save on airfare. For those that can't, summer discounts on hotel rooms can still be found in some popular places.
"We're still seeing really great deals...average hotel rates in the low 100s for travelers at three and four star hotels," says Jenine Tornatore of Orbitz.
Look out for special fares and other deals that may pop up on social networking sites.
"Nearly every major travel player has a Twitter and a Facebook account and often times they'll promote limited time deals and even give away free trips for their friends and followers," Tornatore says.
Another tip: shop for airfares four to six weeks in advance, and keep an eye out on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when new deals are announced.
