Do you like travelling? Do you like to pay high prices for your plane tickets? I didn't think so. Have you ever felt very good about a deal and felt that you found really cheap one way tickets just to find out that the passenger sitting with you paid only half of what you did? This happens more often than you think.
Airlines seem to have tricks up their sleeves (or wings) when they value their airline tickets. Knowing these tips, you can be the passenger that others are jealous of.
- # 1. You don't always have to buy directly from the airline. There are many airlines that advertise their prices through ads and through travel sites. They do not always advertise their lowest prices in this way. Talking to a travel agent, you may be asking for cheap one-way airfare. Travel agents can access a lot of information that travel websites do not have. The newspapers may even have information about really low airfare.
- # 2. Yes, you can get a first class ticket for the bus fare. Many travel agents are aware of these codes. Ask for a special type of tariff. These tariffs usually come with the codes "YUPP", "QUPP" or "Z". The code can be a coach seat that comes with an automatic upgrade, or you can get a crazy discount from a top-notch seat. It couldn't hurt to ask.
- # 3. Quite a few airlines split their seats by price category. Usually they have only a small number of seats at a well-discounted price, while their other seats are placed in high categories. Many times, by the time the airline announces its reduced seats, the discounts on seats have already disappeared. Prices for their remaining locations in other categories fluctuate as demand changes.
