How To Book Cheap Flight Tickets For Your Spring, Summer Travel

When planning a trip, you first worry about expensive flight tickets. And while the location, food, and stay are cheap, it’s the flight ticket cost that bothers us. And like us, if you too want to save on flight tickets, here are some travel tips that will help you save on flight tickets for your summer and spring travel. Read on, and we are sure these tips will help you get cheap flight tickets and save some on this part of travel.

Tips To Keep In Mind To Get Cheap Flight Tickets 

1. Keep An Eye On Low-Cost Airlines

Whether you plan an international holiday or a domestic one, checking tickets with budget carriers is the first thing you should do. Big Airlines like Air India and Vistara cost more throughout the year; however, budget carriers like Indigo, Swiss Air, etc., tend to lower their fare during the offseason. Hence, if you are planning to travel off-season to a particular country/city/state, ensure that you check the low-cost airlines first.

2. Don’t Book At The Last Minute

While the world is slowly recovering from the pandemic, travelling is still uncertain. And we understand that you don’t want to book the tickets in advance and then not go on the trip. However, waiting till the very last moment is never a good idea. Instead of booking tickets 2-3 months prior, at least keep a 45-days gap, pay extra and book refundable tickets. This way, not only will you save some money by booking early, but the refundable tickets will also give an assurance that if you have to cancel the flight, your money will come back.

3. Don’t Fly on Fridays and Sundays

If you are planning a weekend getaway, opt for places that are easily accessible by trains or roads. And for those flying on a week-long trip, ensure that you don’t catch a flight on Fridays and Sundays. It is so because tons of travellers travel on the weekend, increasing the demand more; hence the tickets become expensive. Also, as per the research, Friday is the most expensive day to depart, and Sunday is the most expensive day to return. You can save a good Rs.5000-6000 on flight tickets by avoiding these days.

4. Say No To Public Holidays

Long trips should always be planned around the non-public holidays. This way, not only will you escape the holiday rush but get cheap flight tickets too. Pick destinations, plan trips in the offseason, and we are sure you will save a lot overall.

5. Create A Tracker

Trust us, this is the most effective way to save money and book cheap flight tickets. Once you are done planning the dates and figuring out the route, set a flight tracker 2-months before the trip. The tracker will alert you when the fare is low and when it’s about to increase. This way, you’ll not lose out on a good deal because you couldn’t track or research.
