HOW TO GET CHEAP TRAVEL TICKETS
With planning, foresight and a little bit of hard work, you can
go ahead and have that dream vacation the economical way. Here's
*Search the internet, call airline agencies and watch the news
to keep yourself up to date on discounts. There are a lot of
promotional fares offered by airline companies that are new in
*When you do travel a lot, sign up for frequent flier miles.
*Ask about student fares or senior citizen discounts.
*Keep a flexible travel schedule. Go with the flow. If the promo
states that they only give discounts every Tuesdays, then set
your departure on Tuesday. Generally, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and
Saturdays are the days that have fewer reservations, so it in on
these days that tickets are sold cheap. Monday is usually the
busiest day of the week.
* Do not go ahead and make reservations to the first airline
company you see with promotions. Take the time to source out a
variety of options. Take the time to find out if the promotion
is indeed the cheapest in your area. Ask the clerk about other
offers available. When checking through the internet, make sure

airlines do offer packages such as car rental discount or a
hotel room discount that comes with the travel ticket.
* When you are flying off season, be very sure to ask about
certain standby fares.
*Have an early booking. Promotions are usually offered when one
reserves a ticket three weeks beforehand. Remember that due to
over crowding during the holidays, you may not use your frequent
flier miles. So book in advance if you plan to travel during the
*Staying with only one airline on your entire trip may too, give
you discounts. Airlines offer special rates to round trip
tickets or connecting flights.
