How to Find Cheap Flights

The era of dirt-cheap flying is over. Nowadays, people usually can’t afford to not take the cheapest way around things, because it’s expensive to not go the extra mile in finding better deals. Finding better deals for flights means extra money for you to spend on more important things. Especially when airplane flights are at their most expensive and rates can vary considerably from one airline to another. Prices are soaring because of growing operation costs, so in return airlines have to charge the customers what they can. When sales aren’t moving, this tends to be the time they slash prices…and this is what we are all looking for. Read on to know how to score the cheapest airline tickets.

Despite the increase in airfare, there is still a way for you to get a ticket cheaply. Extra planning can go a long way; you can save yourself a couple of hundred or maybe thousand dollars.

Plan ahead

Some say it’s best to buy a ticket 6-8 weeks before your flight, some say as early as possible. It really depends but the earlier the better since you still have time to gauge whether or not it’s cheap enough for you. Most airlines allow ticket purchases 6-8 months in advance, if you’re sure enough about your plans. If you’re willing to take the risk, then you can wait longer for a cheaper ticket, but be careful not to wait too long. There are a lot of reasons why the flight fares increase, one common reason being the increase of oil costs. Airlines can’t make a profit if they keep the prices the same while the expense to run the airline stays the same.

Flexible Travel Dates

Having a flexible date will give you time to choose the cheapest flight. If you’re lucky enough to be free on the day of the cheapest flight, then good for you. But keep in mind that may not always be the case. Tickets are usually more expensive during peak seasons, which are at the end of the year and during Thanksgiving or Fourth of July. For Europeans, flights are more expensive during August since this is usually the time when most people travel. Flights are also cheaper on average during weekdays compared to weekends. In addition, late night or early morning trips are cheaper because not many people like to travel during that time. Take note that it’s not uncommon for there to be a big price difference between flights that are one or two days apart.

Flexible Destination

Super cheap flight to a place you've never really heard of? No problem! Well okay, not everyone is open for a spontaneous flight to the middle of nowhere, but technically that’s what this article is about. If you’re willing to take a trip to a random place that you've never been to or heard of, then having a lot flexibility about where to go can save you a lot of money.

Budget Carriers

It’s usually cheaper to fly with budget carriers which are usually found in smaller, secondary airports. Airports charge airlines landing fees and smaller airports charge less, so in turn, your ticket will cost less. Of course, secondary airports have fewer facilities than primary airports, but low budget carriers are usually worth the deal.

Flexible Routes

In essence, flexibility saves you a lot. There is no surefire way to tell which way will come out cheaper, but flexibility gives you the advantage of availing of promotions airlines offer. Sometimes, your route can save you money. Generally, it’s cheaper to have stops in your travel. Having direct flights can be a lot more expensive because they get you there faster. Think of it as convenience over price. The more convenient it is to get to your destination faster, then the more likely it’s going to be expensive. Traveling with a lot of stopovers can be an inconvenience because you have to check in with different airlines but sometimes it can save you money. Be more open to stop overs and try as much as you can to fly with a budget airline. For example, flying from US to Amsterdam straight can be more expensive than taking a budget flight that stops over in London.

Figure out your Budget

If you’re like most people, you’ll want to pay as little as possible when it comes to purchasing something. Heck, if it came for free then it would be even better. As previously mentioned, planning your trip ahead can lessen your flight expenses, but holding out because you’re waiting for a better deal can end up backfiring. Prices may lower suddenly, but they can also skyrocket just as suddenly. It is important for you to set a budget and take the deal when it’s within your range. This is a trial and error method—there is no guarantee that you’re going to get a better price, but it’s better to have taken a good deal than to have not taken at all.

Check Different Sites

People tend to check only one site for their tickets. You’re definitely missing out on great deals if you’re doing it this way. Sometimes you need to check different websites for the best deals. Most sites don’t list budget carriers because there isn’t much profit in doing so. Check other sites to verify and check for better deals. Who knows, you could save so much more with just a few clicks!

At the end of the day, all that matters will be the amount of money you saved yourself on your flight. Finding the cheapest flight can be above anyone’s likely limited finances especially during these hard times when money is hard to come by. You’ll be saving yourself (a lot) of money by following these simple tips. Of course, these aren’t foolproof or guaranteed, but it will definitely increase your chances of saving up airfare. If not by the hundreds, then it will at least accumulate over time. Bon voyage!
