Many frequent travelers and one time airline travelers alike think that you must pay a small fortune in order to get good plane tickets. This notion has been confirmed by many of the big travel agencies, but I am here to tell you that it is not true! In fact, I have a few secret tips that I use to save hundreds on airline travel, and if you use these tips, you can too!
1. The first thing that you can do is to try to get a flight that leaves or arrives at a weird time. Often times these flights will not fill up, and as a result you will be able to make sure that you get a deal. Negotiating with the airlines is easy at this point, because they would rather have you on the plane at a discount then not have you at all.
2. Another method that you can use is to contact the airlines directly. This is something that most travelers are not going to think about doing, which will work out in your favor. The key to making this strategy work is to call the airlines at the right time, which is usually when they updated their systems shortly after midnight.
3. While both of those tips work well, the real key to getting some great deals on airline travel is to know someone in the industry. If you can learn from them, then you will be able to get hundreds of dollars off each ticket, in addition to any savings that you see advertised! I learned from someone online, and so can you.
