Finding the Cheapest Airfares

To find the best airfares, it takes a series of actions to be accomplished during the same period of time. Airfare rates change suddenly online, so when you see a price that you are comfortable with, grab it.

1] Always try to purchase your tickets as far in advance as possible. Usually the closer you get to your departure date, the higher the fare will go. Try to book your travel at least 14 days prior to your departure.

2) When searching for International fares, Consolidators can save you hundreds of dollars on International flights.

3] For vacations, it is best to book your hotel and air together.

Cruises offer the best vacation value that travel has to offer. (Driving to your cruise departure city saves BIG on your vacation cost]

4) Sometimes its just easier to go to a Travel Agent or the Airlines themselves.

5) If you can, book yourself on the red eye. These flights are usually less expensive. Try to arrive in the early morning at your destination. If you are a female traveling alone, especially on International Flights, remain in the airport until the sun rises, then catch a cab/bus to your destination.

6] If you are a senior, ask the airlines for the Senior's Fare. If they say they do not have a Senior's Discount Fare, ask them what happen to it? Some US Airlines sell Coupons to passengers age 62 and older.

7] If two or more persons are traveling, ask the airlines for the 'Companion Fare"

8] Travel during 'Low Season'. Your flights, hotels and car rentals are cheaper. When traveling as an independent, check a Travel Guide (Worldwide) for the best hotels, restaurants, sightseeing tours and other helpful tips]

9] The best deals are online and with patients, you can find them.

10) Remember, it is almost always cheaper to book your hotel and air at the same time.

Note: When booking online, print out your confirmation and always check the dates and time of your flight on your confirmation email. You may be charged an extra fee if you need to change it at a later date.
