How to get Cheap Air Plane Tickets
Air fares are mixed and most depend on both which airline you choose and the time of year you want to travel. There are a number of ways you can beat the high rates by spending a bit of time researching and been a little bit more flexible with your dates. Here is how to find the best plane tickets with the cheapest fares.
Deciding Your Service
There are hundreds of airlines operating throughout the World, depending on where you are travelling to/from will depend what type of service you choose. For short flights of 2-4 hours, comfort and on board services are not really that important but when you have a long haul flight you may want a bit more of a service, especially when you have to sit there for some time.
Deciding exactly what you expect from the start will help you make the best decision when booking your flights.
Research Your Options
Instead of going onto the first airline website that pops into your head, try searching for other airlines and search engines where you can filter your dates, airports, expected service and give you the best price.
The internet gives you a great tool to research your options. Google recently rolled out a new "Google Flight Search", although only available throughout America, it will soon be international so watch out for the feature to be released.
Flexible on Dates and Times
I know it can be hard sometimes, especially families that have to go in the school holiday's but if you can go out of season you could save a huge discount in your airfares. January is the cheapest month of the year so if it is possible for you to fly this time of year, do!
The same technique applies when booking weekend flights opposed to week day ones. If you can fly out on a Wednesday rather than a Friday or Saturday it will cut down in price. Same when it comes to times of the flight, opt for a early/late morning flight to again save money.
So know you know how to search for cheaper flight tickets and how you can cut down on the money you spend on them, it is time to go look for them!
