|Tips for booking flights
(NAPSI)-Booking a flight can be frustrating, time consuming, and even intimidating. Here are some “insider” tips from the experts at FlightCenter.com:
Tip No. 1 – The more flexible you are, the more you can save. Wednesday is typically the least expensive day for domestic travel by plane, followed by Tuesday and Saturday. Flying on the actual holiday can often help you save and get the seat you want.
Tip No. 2 – Don’t wait for the perfect price. If you wait in hopes that the price will drop a bit lower, chances are you might wind up paying more than you wanted to. Also, don’t forget to compare the entire cost of the flight. According to travel expert Aaron Reid, “A $20 ticket savings from one airline to another won’t do you much good if that second airline charges $25 to check your first bag.”
Tip No. 3 – Stay up late to purhcase airline tickets. The best time to purchase is between midnight and 1 a.m. on Wednesdays. An alternative is after 3 p.m. on Tuesdays.
