Due to rising fuel costs and the charges imposed by airlines on passengers through air fares, it is quite difficult to find how to fly cheap. No wonder, a group of people going to vote for reach destinations by their motorbikes or private cars.

But, what about those dream destinations where you cannot reach without boarding a flight? Or what about the situations where time matters more than money? In some special cases, where taking a flight is the only option.

Fortunately, there are plenty of things you can do to find the most affordable rates and avoid paying additional costs when you do not want that.

Get The Best Deal

Most airlines make batting tickets much cheaper on Tuesdays and Wednesdays than on any other days of the week. Try to schedule your journey accordingly. I do not need to tell you that boarding a plane on weekends or Mondays is the stupidest choice, in cases where it can be avoided.

Fly in Less Crowded Periods

Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the best days at airports. In simpler terms, less busy days mean more vacant seats and that can be occupied for less than the rest of the week. Also, early morning is an excellent time to find cheap tickets because many people are not willing to wake up before the sun to reach the airport.

Buy Your Ticket in Advance

Many travelers are unaware that there is an ideal time to buy a plane ticket when the prices are minimal. If you buy your ticket in advance say before three months or at least six weeks of the date on which you want to travel, you can save a lot of money.

Avoid Additional Fees

Today, there are many things that are charged by airlines. Being a frequent traveler I know, many airlines even charge for using the toilet or other important services.

In addition, there are charges like – for advance seat selection, for carry-on baggage, phone reservation fees, standby fees, pet carry-on fees, and in some cases, pillow or blanket fees.

Limit Your Luggage

Bag fees vary greatly from one company to another, but the fact is that all airlines practice them. Why pay extra money just to take your clothes with you? It is much easier to reduce the amount of things that put them in your luggage. Even if it is hard, try to stick to a strict minimum.

Next time, when you book a flight, do give a closer attention on these. Paying extra for something that is one hundred avoidable is not wise.

Why bleed your travel budget and why not to go for something that can save you a lot? After all, they all are going to the same airport?
