Travelling by air can be costly, however it is important to educate yourself in this area as knowledge is definitely power when it comes to saving money on your air fare. When travelling to the airport itself, always try to get a family or friend to take you to the airport in order to save on the parking fees. Always get to the airport on time and stick to the luggage limits you are given as you do not want to pay extra money for exceeding the baggage allowance. Try to avoid travelling during the holiday period and on weekends as this is when the airline fares will be at their highest. Always book your trip a month in advance to make the biggest savings on the cost of your airline ticket.
Do you research and visit the websites of quite a few airline companies, you will be amazed at just how much the fares can vary between companies. Also when you visit the website of an airline company, if you are a frequent traveller, it is always worth signing up to receive the newsletter which will often contain details of regular promotions and special offers.
Always compare the prices of flying to and from a variety of different airports, if there a smaller airport near to the main destination airport, then you can often make huge savings by flying to this destination airport instead. Always ensure that the prices you are given on companies websites include all hidden charges and that the price quoted is the final price. I hope you have found these tips useful and you use them to save money on your air travel.
