Secrets to get great flight deals online

Posted by Royal Sundaram on 04 Feb 2013

Planning to go for a vacation? We bet the first thing you look for is travel deals to cut down your expenses at the root. While booking tickets the manual way is almost out of fashion these days, finding deals through travel agents won’t get you far either. The internet has great travel deals for those looking for a break and ready to do a little browsing. Here are 4 tips that’ll help you stick to your ticket budget –


Use twitter as your search engine for a change –

If you are very active on Twitter, then its time your addiction pays off. Keep track of what different flight companies and travel companies post. A great deal may just pop up and last for a limited time. Make sure you don’t lose the opportunity.  This could be anything from huge discounts on ticket fares or redeeming of the miles you’ve collected etc.

Sign Up for alerts –

Every time you visit an online store it offers you to sign up for their newsletters. These newsletters actually inform you of the different deals and facilities they keep running for customer benefit. Same is the case with online travel portals. Once you sign up for their newsletters, they’ll keep sending you offers that you can avail on your travel arrangements. These offers tend to shoot up around holiday seasons.

Look for deals that run on the right hand side of the screen –

We all know that Google ads take up the right hand side of the screen and can many times be the answer for the query you search. So when goggling for travel deals, don’t just look at the organic results, consider the ads that run along, many times they have great package deals for weekend getaways as well as long vacations.

Know when and what to buy –

You have to admit that flight fares for some days of the week are quite expensive as compared to other days. So if you plan to fly on a Friday or a Sunday, be ready to spend a little extra as compared to Saturday, Wednesday and Tuesday. Similarly, some airlines are more expensive as compared to others; this depends on the kind of service you get on and off board.
