3 TIPS TRAVEL COMPANIES DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT
June 24, 2016
When planning a trip, one of the biggest expenses can be your ticket. In fact, if you don’t pay attention, you may end up paying as much as double. Here are a few tips to take off without leaving your wallet behind!
Always use incognito mode when searching for flights So you have searched for a flight several times, and then it seems that its price has changed significantly. Ever find yourself saying: “I should have bought last week…”? This part gets a little sneaky. The cookies in your web browser trigger the ticket sellers that you are looking to fly. In turn, they keep raising the price of tickets on repeat visits to create a sense of urgency and make themselves look even more competitive. To combat this, you always need to use incognito browsing mode for the best prices. Close all your incognito windows and open a new one before one more flight search since cookies reset when re-opening a window in private mode!
Look for the cheapest days Generally speaking, the best time to fly if you want to save money is during a weekday. There are theories which say that Tuesday is the cheapest ones, followed by Thursday. However, this is not a rule for all destinations, so you should identify the best day in your case. You can do this by selecting one-way flights in a specialized search engine, and then select “whole month”, not a specific date.
Compare pricing from travel sites vs. direct Some always assume a multi-airline ticket seller will have the best price, but sometimes this is not the case. There are instances where the best ticket can be purchased directly from the airliner. Try subscribing to free airline travel reward programs to hear about some of the best deals you won’t get anywhere else! Compare these prices with major multi-network travel sites to see if they really do have ‘the deal of a lifetime’.
