How to Book a Cheap Flight

Post by MissKsenia on Thu Jun 30, 2016 9:04 am

Airfare is considered to be the expensive part of any vacation. That’s why finding affordable flights is so much important. So let’s take a look at some possible ways of saving your money.

1. Compare prices online
There are a number of big websites helping travellers to score cheap flights.
The most popular price comparison travel websites are Kayak, Priceline, Orbitz, Expedia, and Travelocity.
2 Check Budget Airlines
Many price comparison websites don’t include certain budget airlines. For example, one of the budget airlines can sell flights through only its own website.
3. Use airline miles
If you’ve never used airline miles or rewards to purchase flights, you should know that it’s a great opportunity for you. You can earn frequent flyer miles for each flight you take, but you can also earn airline miles and points without flying, but by using a rewards credit card. Sometimes travel rewards cards offer a big signup bonus from time to time. There are many different types of rewards cards. Many credit cards offer flexible travel points that can be converted to airline miles or simply cashed in for any travel-related expense. So it’s worth doing research to find a card that will work best for you and your spending habits.
4. Stay Flexible
When your travel dates and destination are flexible it is quite helpful in booking cheap flights. So it wise thought to be flexible with your travel dates, flight departure times, and even your location.
5. Use Fare Trackers and Alerts
If you have plenty of time before your next trip, setting up an airfare alert is a good way to save money. How it works? The website will send you an alert when prices drop significantly lower than normal, so that you could book your flight at the best price.  
6. Time Your Purchase
Different statistical analyses show that the prime booking for cheap flights was between one and four months before a trip.
7. Shop Through Specific Airline Rewards Programs
Many airlines have online shopping portals where you can earn miles on your purchases, and often they’ll send you e-mails on specific promotions and deals.
Sometimes you just don’t realize that you can go through shopping portals for your everyday purchases and earn an extra airline miles.

Saving money takes time and research, and sometimes you need to do more than just log in to a discount travel comparison website and book the first cheap flight you find. Combining several of the above methods will help you find the best deal on your next trip.
