Avoid hidden fees: Low-cost air fares can have a lot of hidden costs so be conscious of this when booking your flight. Take everything into consideration before it’s too late to go back.
Book early: Contrary to popular belief, last minute fares are typically very expensive. Save yourself some money by booking early!
Connect to save: If you’re looking for the best deal, be prepared to fly a bit out of the way. Airlines will often deep-discount fares with connections through far less busy airports. Keep in mind that connections through hubs and major airports will always be more expensive.
Pack less to save money: If you’re planning on checking luggage, keep in mind that baggage fees do add up. Pack wisely to avoid any additional fees that can make your discount fare look expensive.
Prepare for delays: Always be prepared for your flight to be delayed or cancelled due to weather or peak season travel. You should know what flights you want to be booked on and tell the airline when your itinerary changes. During this time, things can get complicated so do not let your airline shuttle you around as they please. You will need to think outside of the box and be prepared to connect through a place that may seem a bit out of the ordinary. The key here is to get where you are going as quickly and as hassle-free as possible.
Keep calm and carry-on: Never lose your temper with a person trying to help you. They have the ability to make your life miserable and or simply ignore you if you are not being kind or respectful. If you are cool, calm and collected they will be too and you will be better off.
