Finding Airfare Bargains


It isn’t easy, yet CAN be done, if you know how.

There are coupon clippers, there are Estate Sale buyers, there are all kinds of bargain hunters….but finding airfare bargains for your travel needs can strain and test the most savvy of shoppers. Here are some tips that have proven successful for finding airfare bargains.

Look at the airline website directly. Often an airline will post specials and packages that are not going to be given to travel agents or bulk consolidators or even places like Expedia. Go to websites such as Kayak to compare all at one time, the different airlines that fly to the destination you are trying to get to. Be willing to consider an airline you have never flown before. Sign up for the Frequent Flyer program that an airline offers. Then sign up for any alerts that an airline can provide to its ‘Frequent Flyer’ members. This could give you advance information on flight costs before it is made public.

Follow the airlines on the internet through Twitter and Facebook, where low-cost deals may be announced. Even look on LinkedIn to see if there is a Group for Airline Travel companies and join the group. Learn from the experts, themselve.

Consider using a company like Priceline or Hotwire, where they buy up lots of tickets to get a better price. You need to be more flexible about the times you want to travel and may not get a direct flight. So if you are flexible you could get a great deal.

Be willing to go to a slightly more distant airport to save on the cost of the flight.

When all the internet research has failed to give you a good price, talk to an agent at the airline you would like to fly on. These are generally agents that want to accommodate travelers. It is their job to get you on a flight to your destination. They will always do the best they can for you.
