Do you love to travel and go for an adventure in some places that you have never been to but worry about the airfare? Here are some of the tips that you can do to get a cheap or free flights and fly to your dream destination:
There is no way that you can get cheap flights if you are not flexible, this includes flexible on dates, times, destination and airports.
Make sure to know your airline comparison engines. First, all you have to do is go to their websites and do airlines comparisons. If you find something that is cheap, go to that airline’s official website and check which is more cheaper. Another tip is, get the details of what you have found on the website and take it to your local agency to match it. Sometimes they will match the price or beat it in a lower price (I do this a lot of times).

3.WHEN DO WE FLY?
Weekends tends to be more expensive because a lot of people fly and they have the time off during the weekends. Avoid flying during the peak seasons like holidays, you’re not gonna get a cheap flight. Airlines increases their tickets on holidays, increase in traffic and chaos; if you can avoid flying on holidays, avoid it.
Make sure to book or buy your tickets ahead of time to get a good deals, start searching for airfare 5 months ahead for international and 3 months for domestic flight.
Cheapest day to fly is Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Some airlines considered Thursday to Sunday a weekend depending on your destination, .
4.PRICE ALERT & SIGNUP FOR DEALS
If you have more time in your hand, setup a price alert. Kayak does this well where you have your save route and then they will alert you when the price goes down or it gets potentially higher. They will also give you an advice when is the best time to buy it.
Signup for deals or newsletter either directly from the airline, local agency or airline search engines. They usually have a 1-2 days flash sale or 1 day sale, promos and discounts for certain destination and flight date.
