Travel suppose to be cheap but flight fare usually cost us the big money on a trip. One can find a cheap hotel or lounge for a stay , can cut down the cost of local travel but find difficult to get cheap flights booking.
Logically, travel must be cheap so that you can spend your valuable money at location on hotels, shopping, food etc. the reason of ending up booking expensive flight ticket is simple, lack of research and efforts.
Frequent travellers know how to get the ticket in low prices. The price of flight tickets majorly depends on the type of airline you choose and the time of the year you are planning.
Here are some tricks to get the cheap flights next time when you are planning abroad :-
Use airfare search engines
You can use airfare meta search engines which are quite easy & quick. You will find one of the cheapest flight tickets over there as it search tickets across every single airline. It also have a tools like price predictions, price maps which are based on destination and time. It can also send flight fare mails & other details if one would like to get notified. It would be better if you check various search engines for the same.
Sign up for fare alerts
While you are doing a research, i would highly recommend you to sign up for the fare alerts. Airfare metasearch engines can do the same, just enter all the details such as destination, dates and let the websites sent you the alert via mail whenever price drops.
You should also visit few sites during your search as there are some websites which provide alerts and offer cheap flight fare. Do this on a regular basis to enjoy the benefit of the offers.
In order to get the best deals, you should be flexible with your date and time. The best time to book flight is 8-10 weeks prior to flying. Wednesday, tuesday and saturdays are the days in which price usually drops. Moreover it is better to fly off- season as passengers are less.
January is the month
I have seen the best flight deals in the month of january and february mostly. You will find the cheap flights in these two months. Airlines try to grab the audience because travellers are less in numbers due to no money after holidays. So next time whenever you give a thought to escape, it will be better for you to book in january to anywhere abroad.
You need to keep your eyes open in order to get the best deal. Regularly check for the fares on search engine, keep the alerts on always and check your mail everyday. Other than that, keep all the above points in mind as they will help you to get the cheap flights.
