The transportation fare, including the flight tickets and local transportation, takes up to 40% of your total travel budgets, depending on how and when you are going to visit that destination. How to reduce this 40% to a lower figure?
Book red-eye flight ticket if travel time is not important to you. Normally, from the major airlines, you will get 50% off for a flight at night. However, you have to order hotel room or arrange vehicles to pick you up.
Avoid traveling in the major holidays and school terms. These periods are the best traveling seasons that almost everyone is planning his or her travel. Tickets and hotel rooms are offered with few discounts. So, you can travel outside of the main holidays or weekends instead.
Have all the necessity packed within the weight limit of airlines luggage. For one thing, you don’t have worry about the overweight luggage charges. For another, as you have all you need, you simply ignore these services that will charge you extra.
Understand the price and services of each room. Try to ask what the difference is behind the price gaps. Do they offer free meal? Do they offer free laundry? What are the surroundings and views outside the window of your hotel room?
The most money-saving method to grab the cheap plane ticket is to build a connection with the travel agency. Most travel agencies will help you to get the largest discount once you sing contact with them. So you don’t have to be at the mercy of the ticket agent.
