I am looking forward to be able to visit my mama on her 79th birthday which will be on January. (Oh, God please allow me to.) That is the reason why I want to work, too, to be able to save money for my spending allowance in the Philippines. I hope to God that I will hear from those employers that I sent my resume to and can start working very soon.
I know I need now to start looking for cheap airline tickets available if I am planning to go on January. Actually, I asked few of my friends to help me find cheap flights , too. I was browsing online and I found very helpful tips on buying airline tickets from different websites. I wrote them down and had come up with this list:
*Plan the dates that you want to leave and be flexible, knowing that some days or time are typically cheaper days to fly. Check this website, LowFares.com.
* Keep yourself updated on airfare wars by watching the news and reading the newspaper. Look for limited-time promotional fares from major airlines and airline companies just starting up.
*Look for deals or travel packages by asking the travel agents. Some areas offer hotel room available at a discount along with the airline ticket.
*Compare rates from one website to another. Diligence always pays off.
*One smart way to find cheap tickets is through “Ticket Consolidators”. You can always find good deals from them.
*Purchase your airline tickets as early as possible. Most airlines have discount if you buy your ticket 3 weeks ahead.
*If possible, avoid passenger’s season. It is usually the time that they raise up their rates.
*Check their stand-by fares, if it is not too risky on your side, but avoid high season because it can be difficult to find a spare seat.
*If possible, stick with the same airline during your entire trip to received round-trip or connecting fare discounts. They always offer that.
