Booking low cost flights

Monday, April 28th, 2008

Go abroad, travel, is something we all want to do. How many times do you have thought were you would travel if you found a low cost trip?

One thing is get the idea around your mind and another very different is do it. This maybe the hardest step. But looking for everything you need to travel with a low budget isn’t easy neither. You have to find the flights, hotels, places to visit and the way to move around, everything with low cost but still of quality.

The most important thing, and maybe what determines the possibility of traveling, is finding a low cost flight. In a travel agency they will charge us around 200% of the real price of the ticket. Maybe they will eliminate the problems with finding a good company but it will be more expensive than looking for a low cost ticket yourself.

The best dates to find low cost flights are, obviously, not at holidays. During workdays, better in wednesdays and thursdays and not during july or august. The difference with a low cost company for traveling on wednesday and saturday can double the original price.

A good place to find cheap flights is Skyscanner. With Skyscanner you can search for city, look for the cheapest places to travel from there and, if we know which airport we have to fly, look for the cheapest day to travel. Trabber is another webpage to find cheap flights, with more companies but without the tools that Skyscanner offers (travel calendar, or cheapest place to travel).

These are the cheapest companies to fly with and the sites to search and compare low cost tickets.
