To many, travel is considered one of life's greatest pleasures and when you find that amazing flight deal, there's really no better feeling. Not only do you save money, but you can finally start the long-awaited countdown to that tropical beach vacay you've been in desperate need of for so long. But according to Americans, finding a great flight deal doesn't just feel good - it feels really really good. 

Yep, you read that correctly. 44 percent of men and women surveyed who have booked flights in the last year said, "the feeling that they get when they save money on a flight is better than sex." Those surveyed were between the ages of 18 and 69 and were asked to share their attitudes about booking cheap flights. 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.

Fifty-nine percent said also said booking a solid flight deal was better than a great first date, 61 percent said it was better than hanging out with friends, 69 percent preferred it to binge watching, and 70 percent said it's better than beer or wine. And if you're wondering how to get these incredible deals, Priceline recommends waiting until summer is over, with Thanksgiving travel being particularly cheap. Keep your eyes peeled for heart-racing prices.
