February 15, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

If you travel a lot, then there’s no doubt that one can save a lot of money in finding the best deal when it comes to air travel tickets. So, here are a few tips that will help you to find you what you want whenever you are ready to pack your bags and take a trip, not unless you enjoy the experience of being a stowaway:

Tip #1: Frequent Flyer Program

This is the most obvious tip of all, and in joining one of these programs which will provide long-term discounts in buying tickets regularly, one will benefit by getting a couple of free tickets to a destination that you wish to go to.

Tip #2: Check airlines’ websites

While one might check only websites of major airlines, not being that picky might also land you a good deal if you look at other airlines that offer tickets at much lower rates sometimes.

Tip #3: Check with online travel agencies

With Orbitz and Expedia being the most popular websites to purchase cheap tickets, this works because travel agents often purchase tickets in bulk, thus being able to offer you lower prices. However, this should not deter you from contacting smaller and local travel agents.

Tip #4: Become a student

When one becomes a student, you automatically qualify for cheaper air tickets.

Tip #5: Advance booking

Normally if one books way in advance, they will get a cheaper price but you should also understand that it is only on some days that you will get tickets cheaper than most, and you should adjust your schedule accordingly.
