  • Staying flexible allows for cheap flights

    2009-12-03

    When searching for affordable airfare, there are several available options that can help travelers to get more bang for their buck. There are discount travel agencies, thrifty websites, tour packages and shopping early to name a few. However, the most effective way to lower prices on air travel may be as simple as keeping a flexible schedule. According to a recent article posted by the LA Times, airlines across the country routinely add holiday travel surcharges ranging anywhere from $10 to $30 on peak travel days in December, January and March. These charges come in addition to heightened airfare during busy holiday seasons. Maintaining a vigilant watch over seasonal deals can also be an effective way to keep costs down. Travelers flying to Japan in the summer may find prices ranging upwards of $1,500-$2,000, but a winter excursion to Narita International Airport can run as low as $800 round trip. Tom Parson's of BestFares.com is also predicting a large airfare sale during the month of December that could provide affordable air travel during January, February and early March. He also cautions travelers to be patient, as established carriers tend to match prices with their more economical competitors when given enough time.
