Book by Incognito Browser Window

These are tech cookies that are dropped onto your desktop or even mobile phone when you browse a web or a mobile browser, respectively.

Book after 10 PM
Rule #2: Book after 10 PM! Crazy idea, right? But, it’s an effective hack! What is the USP for this trick?

If you don’t clear the cookies, the prices of the flights you had checked previously will definitely rise. You may not realize the inflated prices.

These websites en cash on the consumers of the latter kind.
