Im always getting asked how I find the best price for flights. Is it better to go to my local travel agent because they will have special deals that I will not find online?
If you have the internet and a little bit of spare time, with the advent of today’s high tech online world, generally in most cases, the best place to find the cheapest prices will be online.
What do you think the most importance expense for a trip is going to be? Finding the best price for accommodation? Or what about the best price for the tours you want to do? What about vehicle hire or buying the best suitcase or backpack? Most often, the cost of your flights is going to be one of the most expensive parts of any trip, so it just makes sense that the most important thing is to find the cheapest flight deals.
Here is a few tips that can help you find cheap flights and flight deals and to save you money to spend on other parts of your trip.
* Be flexible with the dates that you fly and the destinations you are going to
* Look at secondary airports and budget carriers
* In most case, book as early as you possibly can
So how are you going to find that best possible price? Well you need to search as many flight search websites as you can in order to ensure you find the cheapest possible price. I cannot tell you how important it is to check more than one site before you book, as you’ll often see variations in prices and you never know where that best deal will be.
Travel metasearch engines or aggregators are most often the best way to search and find cheapest possible flights on the internet. What travel metasearch or travel aggregators do is search multiple online travel agents and airline prices and then display hundreds of real-time flight prices from all around the world, all on one simple screen.
The events and festival travel specialists, FOMO Travel, has a great site with a great travel metasearch booking engine. Their booking engine searches all the best online travel agency and airline websites for flights and then delivers you the best prices from those sites and displays them on one page. As well as this, their flight booking engine can also be utilised to search for hotel deals from multiple travel sites from all over the world.
