Travel Tips

 

 

Air travel has been revolutionized by budget airlines in the past few years. But there can still be pitfalls when using them:

Always book online

Some budget airlines charge a premium for booking on the phone.

Book well in advance

With most budget airlines the earlier you book the less youíll pay.

Do you need a cheap flight home too?

Return fares may cost more than the outbound ticket.

Be sure to check your final destination

Some budget airlines land at airports that can be a long way from where youíre actually going.

Try to avoid weekends

Budget airlines often charge more if you want go away for the weekend.

Free tickets arenít always free

Even if an airline states that the fare is free, you probably still have to pay airport/local taxes and other charges. Always check.

Travel off-peak and get the best deals

Flights with the cheapest fares are often early morning, middle of the day or late night.

Baggage Allowances

Some budget airlines will charge you more than you think for additional kilograms if you go over the weight of your baggage allowances.

Check-in

Check-in desks close strictly around 45 minutes before scheduled departure, by which time passengers should have completed the check-in process and be in possession of a valid boarding card.
