Looking for ways to get more bang for your honeymoon buck? Expedia just released its new study, Preparing for Takeoff: Air Travel Trends for 2015, which is chockfull of strategies for scoring great deals in the New Year. Check out the five tips below, and start thinking about what to do with all the money you'll save. (Suite upgrade, please!)

Plan ahead
For the best chance of saving some serious cash, start looking at ticket prices two months before domestic travel and a full six months before international travel. You'll find the absolute lowest ticket price 57 days prior to a domestic trip and 171 days before international departure (mark your calendar now!).

But if you procrastinated, you (might) get lucky
If you've waited until the total last minute, you can get great deals in a big resort destination like Hawaii, Mexico, or the Caribbean one to three weeks before your trip. For the best deal, book a package that bundles your air travel, hotel, and car into one price. Fair warning: you might have to be flexible about when and where you're going.

Buy on a Tuesday
Ticket prices, on average, are lowest on Tuesdays when you book at least three weeks in advance.

Consider an upgrade
The price gap between economy, business, and first class is shrinking so check the prices of business and first class tickets before you automatically click economy. More leg room and drink service, pretty please!

Think about the day of the week
Attention mini-mooners: You can save roughly 25 percent on short-haul flights when you book a Saturday departure and a Tuesday return. Or fly out on a Thursday and return Monday—you'll save 20 percent over the most expensive itinerary (leaving Friday and returning the next Saturday).
