There are some tips which I collect from internet and I think I ever wrote about it before. I got some tips to get cheap airfare before from backpackers forums and there are 4 tips to get cheap airfare ticket, i.e:
1. Purchase tickets at the season of transition,
2. Take advantage of discounts
3. Find out the cost of baggage
4. Use The Reliable Tour and Travel Agent Services
Usually I use travel agent to book my airline ticket but sometime I do online booking too. I do online booking because sometime I found that internet airline ticket is cheaper than airline ticket price in travel agent and it is very easy to book online airline ticket too. Then I'm looking article how to get cheap airline ticket by internet booking, then I got some article about it.
1. Buy early
I think many people already know about it that buy ticket early will get lower price. Ya.. I used to buy airline ticket 1 month before my flight schedule. Some source said if we buy airline ticket 6 weeks before schedule, the price will lower 6% but sometime I got cheaper than that. They also said that airline ticket prices typically go up 21 days, 14 days, 7 days and 3 days before flying, so don't book airline ticket on that days.
2. Buy late
I didn't try to buy airline ticket at late time because I'm afraid that I can't get airline ticket, ya... mostly if in high season it will sold out 2 weeks before schedule. But my friend told me that she ever get very cheap airline ticket when she bought at the last minute deal. (I think she was very lucky).
3. Compare or shop around
Ya... if you really want to get cheap airline ticket don't book ticket which you see at first time. You have to shop around or visit other airline providers or other booking sites so you can compare which one is cheaper. If you still feel all those price to high then don't be afraid to bide your time and watch the fares for a bit. Many booking sites have alert features that will send an e-mail when the fare drops.
4. Consider an Air Pass
Air pass is one way of many countries to promote tourism on their country, many national airlines offer air passes at reduced rates for tourists. If you're planning to do extensive travel in one country or region, an air pass might be your most cost-effective option.
5. Check for deals and discounts
It is important, don't forget to check for deals and discounts. Some book site give deals and discount every week so don't forget to check those so it is important to know when you have to buy your airline ticket.
Ok... I think those my tips to get cheap airline tickets. Have a reat vacation...
