Active military service members, veterans, and military families: take advantage of discounted military airfares offered by many airlines.

Whether your destination is a family vacation, a solo-getaway, or a business trip, military discounts are available to a variety of destinations and flights.

Since there are an array of airlines and discount rates available, knowing how to find that perfect deal can take experience. So take a shortcut: see below for tips on finding the best military discount airfares for your travel needs.

DISCOVER SPACE-AVAILABLE TRAVEL

Space Available Travel, also known as "Space A," was once ideal for last-minute military travelers.

Space Available Travel allows military service members seats on any DoD plane, provided there are extra seats after all personnel are boarded.

Space A tickets can be free or cost next-to-nothing for military service members and their military families only - provided that your travel dates are flexible.

Check the airlines for any Space Available Travel before counting on it; many airlines are limiting Space A travel due to heightened security measures after 9/11, which can make last minute travel riskier for airlines to accept.

MILITARY DISCOUNT WEBSITE LISTINGS

FIND LIMITED-TIME DISCOUNTS ON AIRLINE WEBSITES

Limited-time standard discounts, offered directly by airlines or airfare-sites, can be a great option for traveling military service members.

Although available to both military and civilians, limited-time standard discounts can be the lowest priced airfare on the market.

Find limited-time standard discounts directly on airline websites, or check composite sites that list cheap airline tickets for their latest specials.

CONSIDER THE SOURCE OF ANY DISCOUNT

Generally, if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Always be cautious and check the credibility of all discount sources before you purchase airline tickets, to avoid getting stuck with terms you didn't count on such as non-refundable tickets.

Be wary of scams directed toward military travelers. Never wire any money to anyone offering a military travel discount; always be sure you can pay for airline tickets with a credit card so you have a credible source for redress if needed.
