Lyle greyfalk girvin : How to find a cheaper flight (9 Rules to pay the cheapest air ticket )

It is the wish of every traveler, the Holy Grail : pay less for what costs the most in the budget of any traveler .

Certainly not easy . Nevertheless, there is still a procedure for finding the cheapest ticket.

flight How to find a cheaper flight (or 9 Rules to pay the cheapest air ticket )

Here is a short summary drawn from my experience :

1 . Internet is the king to find a flight

Is there still need to remember ? Commission costs will of course lower on internet with a physical branch .

On the other hand , it is certain that you will not need for personal advice from an agency. Finally, if you read this, is that you are probably used to book your flight online !

2 . Comparators flights : a must!

This is the most effective way to find a flight at the right price . There are several on the market as Kayak or Skyscanner .

For example , Kayak compares the prices on thousands of routes and hundreds of airlines. In addition, these comparators flights offer interesting options as does choosing a nonstop flight or a map to see the destinations based on their price ...

In addition, look for the best price by the day is easier . The search is usually very ergonomic .

For medium and long haul , they are really effective. By cons , they often do not take into account the low-cost airlines . Except Skyscanner .

For the latter, in Europe, you can use the Bravofly website. This is indeed specialized in low-cost flights . Will find a cheap air ticket !

In Asia , there is AirAsia , a low-cost service throughout Asia. And even offers flights from Paris !

It is best to do research on both Kayak and Skycanner . And then watch the best result.
3 . Check your flight on the website of the airline

Once you have spotted the comparators flights the cheapest ticket will check the prices on the website of the company.

It is sometimes cheaper!

4 . Anticipate and buy flight air ticket in advance!

Theoretically , it is best to book at least two months in advance. This is the best way to get a better price.

Or at the last moment , as I did for my ticket Cancun -La Havana ( 200 euros) .

In practice, this is not always the case. Personally, I find it difficult to anticipate !

5. Avoid weekends for a flight

Prefer a start / finish line during the week and not on a Friday or a Monday. The plane is less filled week logical !

In fact, it can force you to take days off ....

6 . Traveling in off-peak periods

Summer is often the most expensive time to buy a plane ticket. January and February appears instead as the most suitable time .

Ditto if you avoid holidays and during school holidays . And you will avoid the crowds !
7 . Beware of the ticket taxes

This is particularly the case for low cost flights . Taxes can be equivalent to the price of the ticket. !

Same for the baggage fees , often high ! And we should see this, for the neophyte , it is not obvious !

This is also sometimes limit!

8 . Insurance for flights

They are always available . At some sites, the boxes are sometimes pre- checked !

Ask yourself if you really need it , and if you are not covered by other insurance as your CB ...

9 . Why not auction ?

The New Frontiers site offers weekly ticket auction . Tuesday memory .

The dates are not flexible course . That said, you can walk away with a ticket pocket at an unbeatable price for the Meeting . A good plan !

Attention, so it is an auction system ! That is to say that you must have in mind the maximum threshold that you want !

I did not mention the miles that may be eligible for cheaper tickets , see free. Why ? For it must travel a lot for this! In France , we are also worse off than Americans who accumulate miles when they use their credit card ...

To learn more about this, you can read this article on how to use your miles and loyalty cards.

And you, how would you take ? Do you have any tips to share ?
