Searching for cheap flights, last minute offers flights or error fare flights? You can reduce your travel costs by a big percentage if you stay updated on the latest offers from airline companies. The differences can be big, for example airplane tickets that sell initially for USD 1000 can reach 500 or even lower, if you know when to buy.
Cheap flights tricks : Subscribe to e-news from smaller airlines: Some low-cost airlines do not allow their prices to be included among the meta-search results because they prefer you to buy directly on their website due to already low prices. Information about their campaigns and discounts are usually communicated directly through their e-news and social channels. Therefore, it makes sense to subscribe to their e-newsletter (if you use Gmail, you can create a filter that allows you to collect all low-cost related mail in one folder. Here it is explained how to do it).
Look for tickets in other currencies: If your country’s currency is currently strong compared to others around the world, search airfare in a country where the currency is weaker. For example, the US dollar is strong and the New Zealand currency is weak. I found a one-way flight from Australia to NYC for $1,000 USD but when I searched on the NZ version of the airline, I found the same ticket for $600 USD. It’s the same airline, same flight, and same booking class. It was just booked in a different currency. This tip does not always work, but it works often enough that it’s something worth trying if your currency is currently doing well. Read extra details on Error fare flights.
Search for flights through a VPN. A virtual private network allows you to browse the Internet anonymously from anywhere — so you can essentially log in from another country, said Johnson of Nomad Paradise, an online guide to traveling the world as a digital nomad. “Due to exchange rates, booking flights in some countries is far cheaper than others,” he said. When he needed to fly from Singapore to Denpasar, Indonesia, Johnson tried several countries, and when browsing from Thailand, some of the flights were up to $200 less (it’s not technically a mistake, but this trick lowers the price to mistake fare levels).
The Travel Alert Club (or as our team refer to it, “TAC”) are a bunch of travel enthusiasts that love saving money on travel and flight costs. Our goal is to find travel and flight deals so we NEVER pay full fare and have the chance to visit places that may have been too expensive at the standard fare. We do what we do because we love it, so our jobs are not really ‘jobs’ and apart from paying the bills, our real joy comes from hearing about the savings our members have made and the amazing places they visit as a result. Originally a family run business we now have a team of 5 based across 3 countries (well…..i did say we like to travel!) – London, Zurich and Bucharest. When we’re not looking for great deals and sharing these with our members, you’ll find us on the slopes in the winter and by the beach in the summer……we live very simple lives 🙂 oh, and as we ourselves don’t pay full fare, of course we may go more than once…..with a little extra spending money!
