14 Tips on How to Get Outrageously Cheap Airfare

By: George Alarcon

These days more than ever before people who travel contantly or only sometimes are either paying more without knowing they are or more than they should knowingly and not doing anything about it. If you would love to save yourself in your next plane ticket and don't mine spending a little time, read the tips below for great ideas on how you can without too much effort save a great deal on your next plane ticket to almost any destination in the world.

1) Avoid travel agents; instead book online instead of offline; you'll save money from the paper processing fee.

2) Clear out your cookies. Why? Many travel websites use the cookies to log when you search for a particular route and will quote you higher when you return to that site to search again.

3) Many airline websites update their airfare shortly after midnight. A little research about the route you are looking will help you get the best plane ticket deals before they are sold.

4) Stay less than 30 days. Most airfare tariffs have a month's limitation stay restriction. If you require more time, you will pay a higher priced ticket as a sort of penalty.

5) If you are traveling with a child under 2 year of age, your child is qualified to travel for free. Buying a separate seat for your child is really expensive.

6) Be ready and open to have different departure and return dates. Mark "anytime" in the search window. Play for a while with different dates and airports. You'll be amazed how much money you can save.

7) Buy flight tickets during the off-season periods; flight tickets are usually cheaper.

8) Buy flight tickets in advance; you can save a lot.

9) Buy from an air courier service; these are companies that will buy your luggage space in exchange for lower-priced tickets.

10) If you fly a lot, join a frequent flyer program; such a program offers long-term discounts.

11) Buy a round-trp ticket; it is cheaper than a one-way ticket.

12) Fly midweek: Flights that leave during midweek are generally cheaper because of the decreased demand; do not fly on Fridays or Sundays.

13) Fly early mornings or late evenings; these are less busy and often can be less expensive.

14) Use a wholesaler: a wholesaler buys airfare tickets at extremely low rates and pass on the ticket price difference onto the consumer.Book a flight at wholesale rates by using a wholesaler.
