When looking online for cheap flights there are a few things you must watch out for when making your plans. Here are a few travel tips when looking into those cheap seats.
Make sure you know how much you are actually paying for your vacation and flight.
Many budget airline companies add in charges as you travel. Look out for fees for checking bags as some companies charge twice as much as others. In addition, many budget airline companies will tack on a charge for each 15kg (33lb) bag. Some companies will add on a credit card fee- some have an astronomical 10 Euros (about 13 dollars) fee. These fees can put a damper on your plans for holidays and vacations.
Make sure your plans are set because you may not be able to change the flight date.
If your plan for holidays and vacations could change, you must be careful when making reservations for cheap tickets. You may not be able to change your flight date or time or get a refund if your plans change. Ensure that your date is set for your holidays and vacations.
Be careful when dealing with in agents in foreign countries.
The best thing to do when making your plans is to pay by credit card which will give you protection against any failure in the delivery of the tickets.
Never book too soon or too late.
You may miss out on sales if you plan well in advance, or you can pay too much if you need a ticket last minute. The best deals are when there are the most seats, so plan in advance, but of course not too far. Compare prices a few months in advance to get the most realistic comparison between airlines prices.
