At some point in our lives, I believe that it's crucial to get out and see the world. It's too easy, to get stuck in our lives, surround by the same walls and borders for years at a time. If you has most travelers, they will tell you the best times of their lives were spent traveling.
Those people who have the most free time on their hands, seem to be the ones that do most of the traveling. Those people would be of course the ones without permanent jobs to tie them down. Mostly the pre or post college age crowd, as well as the retired crowd. Everyone else seems too busy.
So, this article is to address both those age groups, as they are the ones with skinny wallets, and light purses. Not having a real job, has a tendency to do that to people.
Along the same axiom that young is wasted on the old, so is travel. If our middle aged population spent more time traveling, then perhaps that group would be more tolerant of different cultures, and concerned with world issues. Instead, they've got their nose to the grindstone.
The reason getting cheaper airline tickets is such a popular occupations, is that the people traveling, really do need to save some money. Or maybe, it's just because they'd rather spend that travel budget on a better hotel, and hanging out at fancier resorts and restaurants.
So, now that I've got you convinced to hunt down some dirt cheap airline tickets, your probably hoping I can give you a few tips. Well in fact I can. It well take a bit of work on your part, but as they say, nothing is free. Including bargains.
If your going on a vacation to relax, then maybe it's a good idea to start relaxing a little early. By relax, I mean take a relaxed attitude toward dates. When you leave, and return, is not that important, it's the being there that counts. Being a little loose on your dates, can get you cheaper tickets.
There's another thing to watch for as well. When airlines overbook, they often ask people to give up their seats in exchange for free tickets on future flights. I always say yes.
Don't be a procrastinator, when it comes to booking your vacation flights. Airlines don't like procrastinators, but they do love people who buy their tickets early. And to show you just how much, they'll charge you less money.
Say away from flying between Friday through Monday. That's the busiest time at airports and for airlines. As a result of that demand for tickets, they can charge more money, and they do. Tuesday through Thursday is the least expensive times to get dirt cheap airline tickets.
