Cheap Air Ticket Deals
Air bound travel has increased to the reason that it is the quickest traveling experience and air travel has made the world shrunk in terms of distances. It has become very easy to start from one corner of the world and go the other part of the world within 24 – 48 hours time. It has become a matter of hours only. It might be a bit costly to avail of this facility but within the reach of the consumer if one plans properly.
The best deals on air tickets can be got when the travel plan is made on certain days of the week for example if it is planned on a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday night till Sunday morning, as the traffic is less and the air lines are forced to fill the seats to get the maximum amount. This is the case for almost all the flights. And also traveling in the wee hours also might get a deal say it you take a late-night flight departure.
Probing the reservation agent from time to time might help you get the necessary information. Some agents do not disclose the lowest air ticket fares unless and until you ask for it as the commission is involved in it. Normally a travel agent does not charge the customer or the person who is traveling but get a commission from the airlines.
Some agents may even have the access to information regarding special deals a certain airline offers.
If the travel is bound to a famous foreign destination it is wise to ask the travel agent about the charter flights, as it might offer low price. But before signing the contract one should go through the policies and conditions if any applied on it.
The flight destination can also offer the best air ticket deals. It is good to find out from the travel agent about the destination if it is an airline hub or not. Because the flight charges might be higher than the flight charges to the nearby cities where competition is less. They can minimize their charges by choosing a city nearer to the hub even if he has to go to the city with the airline hub.
Even after the purchase of the air ticket, it is always mandatory to check with the airline or the travel agent even if it takes two or three phone calls to confirm about the reservations and if there is any change in fares. The fare changes occur round the clock, and a few airlines even refund the difference of amount if the air ticket fare gets reduced before travel, but it is not done on it’s own, you ask for it, you get it is the mantra.
