Tips about saving on air fares, policies & restrictions, ticket information, documentation, staying safe and avoiding and dealing with problems. Includes airport codes and links to airlines and hundreds of domestic and foreign airports. With all the different prices, deals, rules and regulations, air travel is considerably more complicated than most passengers feel it should be. Just look at an AirlineA’s ticket code rate schedule and youA’ll see why even many Airline employees find it confusing. You also have all the different luggage hassles and the fear of arriving with a ticket that you paid for months ago, only to find there is no room on the plane for you. A little research, planning and preparation can go a long way in helping you avoid hassles and get you back on your way when you run into trouble. We can help you become informed so that for you, air travel is as simple as it should be.

Get a better rate on your Airline tickets
  • Make your reservations as soon as you have decided on travel plans. Airlines give discounts for early bookings at least 21 days in advance. The best rates are often those that include a Saturday night stay and have travel dates during the week.
  • If you can be flexible about when you travel, do so. It can bring big savings. Even changing a flight’s time during the same day can effect the rate. Often the less popular early morning or late evening flights have lower rates.
  • The best rates tend to be found during the off season and at other times when the Airlines are flying at less than capacity.
  • Check into splitting your trip into two roundtrip sections. A stopover at a midpoint could save you over flying a direct route. Although, make sure the saving are large enough to warrant the extra hassles of the stopover.
  • Check into booking your travel plans as a package. You might be able to save by booking your Airline tickets along with your hotel room or rental car.
  • Ask if this is the best rate that they have available when you are booking your reservation.
  • Apply any special discount programs for which you are eligible.
  • When you reach check-in, ask to see if any special upgrade deals are available.
  • Take some time to look for the best rate, a little research can bring big savings. Airline ticket prices vary wildly and you want to be the one that paid $200.00 roundtrip, not the guy in the next seat that paid $600.00
