With all the tricks for snagging affordable airfare, sometimes there is no better feeling than knowing you paid the lowest possible price for your holiday trip to Bermuda. Now, a new study from Priceline suggests that the thrill of booking a cheap flight just might prove more satisfying than sex. An estimated 44 percent of men and women say the feeling they get when snagging cheap flights is better than sex, according to a new study from Priceline.

“Those surveyed were between the ages of 18 and 69 and were asked to share their attitudes about booking cheap flights,” according to VIVA. “More than a third of respondents (37 percent) reported feeling happy about saving money on their trip, with one in four said they feel smart or accomplished after scoring a deal.”

An estimated 59 percent of respondents also said that booking a good flight deal was more satisfying than a first date, while a surprising 70 percent of people said they enjoy the triumphant feeling of saving money over a good wine or beer.

“The bottom line is that Americans love saving on flights and doing so strategically,” reports AOL Finance. “Nearly 1 out of every 3 Americans have booked their lights at a specific time of day thinking that it’ll help them save more.”
