It's the bane of every traveler, but delaying your big trip until you can find a great deal is better than canceling it.

If a trip comes up that works for you, you can snag a last-minute deal. Your best bets are to keep tabs on travel deal aggregators like Travelzoo, Kayak, Cheapflights.com and Yahoo's FareChaser and set up alerts to get emails when particular destinations hit a certain price point.
