 Cheap Air Travel Tickets

Cheap Air Travel Tickets

You can get cheap air travel tickets by practicing some basic research skills.

Take time to review several travel websites before booking your trip Spending some time comparing fares, and following the advice of frequent travelers, can save you as much as 200.00 per flight. 

Air travel cheap fare ideas include comparing travel companies, choosing the best day and time of day for your flight, and willingness to forgo "first class" or upgraded tickets. The "perks" are enjoyable but are they worth the cost? One easy way to compare flights is to use a multi-search flight comparison tool.

The Booking Buddy website consistently helps us compare what each travel company offers.

Posted airline ticket fares are constantly changing to reflect availability and other (more obscure to most of us) practices within the airline industry. 

Some "insider" tips include:

  • Start your planning as early as you can once you know you will be traveling.
  • Check back often if you don't need to book right away.

On the other hand, don't wait too long. You are unlikely to get a reasonable fare if you wait to book seven days or less before your trip. Timing is everything!

Six to eight weeks in advance of your travel date is usually the time frame in which to get the best cheap air travel tickets. 

Flying on a Tuesday or Wednesday will often get you the cheapest air fare. Flying on Friday or Monday will usually cost the most. Combine a business trip with a trip to visit family or take a couple of vacation days and you will have made your airfare dollars give you "two for  one." 

Last Minute Cheap Air Travel Tickets

If you do find yourself needing to fly last minute or in less than seven days, your best place to find those flights will likely be at Expedia.


More Tips for Cheap Air Travel 

Purchase your travel insurance from the same company that you use for your other insurance needs. You will likely get a better deal that from other, strictly, travel insurance companies.
