Travel tips: how to save on airfare
When deciding to go on vacation somewhere, people often pay attention to the place of rest and the hotel where they will stay. The transport issue, as a rule, is put into the background and is not considered something important. However, our mood and willingness to actively spend the vacation that has begun depends on how comfortable we will arrive at the place of rest.
Focusing only on price, such an important factor as comfort and service is often ignored. To save a couple of thousand people are willing to make many sacrifices. However, there are many ways to save money without compromising on quality.
The main question that arises when buying a ticket is: plane or train. Railway connections are very well developed in Russia, and the famous Trans-Siberian Railway is known all over the world. For trips around Russia, the average Russian is likely to choose a train. It is both financially accessible and winds a pleasant melancholy. There is a romance in the knocking of wheels and in glasses with a cup holder. Yes, and railway stations are even in small cities, which can not be said about airports, which are only in megacities. Cons are obvious. Our endless homeland is truly without an edge. And to get, for example, from Moscow to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, you need to spend more than one day. Comfort depends, of course, on the chosen place. There may be a legendary reserved seat and luxury compartments with showers.
Airplanes are fast and comfortable anywhere in any class. But here the price for the flight bites. To save this type of transport is not suitable. Although, if you save time, then this is what you need. Of course, if you do not take into account the country, which can only be reached by air. Here the choice is obvious.
Pros and cons are everywhere. And when choosing a vehicle you need to ask yourself the question: what can be sacrificed in this situation, time or money.
Well, now the most important thing. How to save on tickets anyway?
The Internet is our everything. Thanks to him, ordering airline tickets and train tickets becomes easier. When registering via the Internet, you can influence its cost yourself, including those options that are really necessary. For example, if you plan to travel only a few hours on the train and you are not going to sleep in it, then you do not need to pay for bed linen. On the plane, you can choose the class and place yourself, which also affects the price. Also, the cost depends on various little things that are included in the standard ticket, but which you can refuse.
Ordering a round-trip airplane ticket will come out a bit cheaper than if you bought the tickets separately.
And, most importantly, of course, dates and season. It’s no secret that on Friday and Sunday tickets are more expensive than, for example, on Wednesday or Thursday. As a rule, weekends are the most expensive and busy days. Many people prefer to travel somewhere on Friday, returning on Sunday. The same rule applies to the holiday season. Each direction has its own hot dates, where in certain months of the year tickets simply cannot be found. For example, this was the case with tickets to Turkey in the summer.
It will also not be superfluous to check different aggregator sites, which often offer good discounts not only on tickets, but also on vouchers.
If you need to save on the road, then nothing is impossible, however, all of the above loses its force if the vacation is planned for certain dates, and it is already impossible to transfer them.
