Tips for buying airline tickets
Tips for buying air tickets Finding the right air ticket can be quite difficult. Here are some practical tips for buying airline tickets:
1There can be a huge difference in the prices of air tickets, depending on where they were bought, so you should first look closely. There are several websites on the Internet that compare the best prices for a particular route. Sometimes there are restrictions on the use of citizens or permanent residents only of a particular country, use the search engine to find a site suitable for your country.
2Today, there are quite a few budget airlines. Check them out and find out if a budget airline operates flights to your destination. Pay attention to the information. A note about Paris and Barcelona can mean an 80-minute bus ride to the city center.
3Some airlines offer lucrative promotions where you get discounts on the number of domestic flights if you buy one international flight. This can be very profitable.
4If you travel for a longer period of time, you can buy tickets all over the world at once, which can be extremely profitable, but often have restrictions, for example, you have to fly in one direction and can not go back.
5It may be cheaper to travel to typical business destinations during the holidays and to places of famous attractions during the off-season.
6If you think that your plans may change, look at what is printed in the small print about cancellations and rebooking.
7Some countries require you to have a return ticket to enter. If you plan to enter by air and leave the country by land, this can be a problem.
8If you follow a special diet, be sure to inform us when booking, as well as during check-in.
9If you missed your flight because you were late for the airport, or because you got your flight dates mixed up, you may be allowed to change your flight either for free or for a fee, without having to buy a new ticket. It all depends on your airline, so try to make a very pitiful face when you go there.
10Check with the airline if you need to confirm your ticket a few days in advance before returning.
Muhammad has 10 camels. He sells 12 camels. The first 10 people came to pick up their camels. When the last two men came to collect their camels, Mohammed said:: "I'm sorry, but sometimes people buy camels and don't come for them, so I sold some camels twice. I'll get new camels next week, then you can pick up your own. Please take this chewing gum as compensation."
This is exactly what airlines do. They sell more tickets than there are seats, hoping that not everyone will come to check in. Sometimes too many people show up before a flight, so not everyone will be able to leave. So confirm your ticket and arrive at the airport early. If you are not allowed on the flight, you can get compensation, assistance, food and hotel accommodation. If you are not in a hurry, you can even voluntarily give up your seat for compensation.
Regular customer incentive programsLoyalty programs allow you to collect bonus points that can be used in exchange for flights or other services, such as hotel reservations and car rentals. The airline uses these programs to encourage travelers to book with it, even if other airlines can offer better prices.
Many passengers end up never using their bonus points, so think twice before buying a more expensive ticket just because you have a frequent flyer card with that airline. As a rule, for frequent flyers, the number of seats is limited, so if you plan to use the bonuses, book your tickets in advance.
