7 Tips For Booking Flights Online
1. LOOK EARLY/BOOKING FLIGHT EARLY
Wait until the last minute and you will pay top dollar for plane tickets. USA Today states the cheapest fares are available 21 days before scheduled departure dates. It is possible to find deals a week or two before, but tickets are quickly snatched up. Another word of caution- 21 days seems to be the magic number. Anything earlier and ticket prices are not as low.
2. BE FLEXIBLE
Barring a work-related trip, try to keep travel dates open. On many sites, customers can view a month of travel dates to compare fares. Playing around with arrival and departure dates can add up to big savings. Flexibility also comes in handy when booking tickets around heavy travel periods or during travel to popular resort areas.
Take the time to compare fares from a variety of sites. See what prices airlines are offering, then visit third-party sites, like Expedia and Travelocity to see if their prices are lower. Rush the process and your wallet could be impacted.
4. LOOK FOR FLIGHTS AT ODD HOURS
According to The Times, a newspaper in the United Kingdom, everyone is looking for an escape in the beginning of the week. The act of online booking skyrockets after dinner during the work week, and airlines take full advantage. Search for flights very early in the morning or really late at night on a Wednesday or Thursday for great ticket deals.
5. BECOME FAMILIAR WITH YOUR PLANE BEFORE YOU BOOK
Sites like Seat Guru (seat guru.com) give the lowdown on airplane seating and amenities. Pricing is a considerable factor, but it may also help to know if your flight has onboard Wi-Fi available. Use seat size information to help decide if that Business Class upgrade will be priceless.
6. REVIEW CANCELLATION POLICIES BEFORE MAKING A PURCHASE
It is easy to miss the fine print during virtual ticket purchases, but knowledge about what happens in case your trip falls through is invaluable. Note any cancellation fees, and whether any remaining funds are returned or required to be credited towards another trip…Which brings us to our final tip.
7. CONSIDER CANCELLATION INSURANCE
Cancellation insurance is offered right before checkout during online ticket purchases and price varies with ticket costs. Not everyone needs it and policies do not cover all cancellation types, but it makes sense for once-in-a-lifetime trips. Ticket refunds are issued because of certain medical issues, family emergencies and military deployments.
