Some people like to book tickets in the traditional way by going to their favorite airline’s website and searching the website for the flights in the route they want to travel and the timings of the flight. Once their desired criteria are fulfilled they buy the ticket. This is one way of booking air tickets. The other way is to browse through best travel websites and find the best deals for the flight you want to board.
There are many best travel websites on the net which offer cheap fares. What some people do is that they visit one best travel website and they search for a cheap airfare and when they get a comfortably cheaper airfare they buy that. But this is not something that traveler should do. A more intelligent traveler will search at least search 4 to 5 best travel sights and be confident about finding the cheapest possible airfare.
But in order to find the cheapest air tickets you have to keep certain things in mind. Start planning your vacation before hand. If you are planning to board a plane on a high season you and yet want cheap fares you should book the flight at least three to four months before the day of your journey. However, on low seasons, booking the flight before one month will be enough to get cheap air tickets. The next thing that you should remember is to book the flight for a day which does not have too much air traffic. On Fridays, Sundays and Mondays business people travel a lot so the rate of the air ticket is never low. And experts say that if you book your tickets on Tuesdays after 12 o’ clock you will get the best deal for your air travel ticket. The reason that experts say is behind this is that on Tuesday nights airline companies start reselling the tickets that were not sold in the last seven days and that is why they are offered on a cheap rate.
If you are not looking solely for cheap airfare but also for packaged tours best travel websites is where you should search. You can compare the packages and the discounts offered by different travel websites and the take step. If you want a review of the place you want to go, the hotel you want to stay in and the cultures of that place then you should visit the personal websites or blogs of fellow travelers who have gone to that place. Interact with them and they will give you the best ideas of the place you are visiting.
