I have to say when it comes to buying tickets of any sort whether for music shows or plane trips I like to find the cheapest tickets that I can.
I do not expect to get anything for free but I refuse to pay the inflated amount that the airline charges right off the bat for their flights. I have looked all over the internet for ways to get cheep tickets and have come up with a few techniques.
The main way to get cheep tickets, specifically airline tickets is, to be willing to go on a short notice trip. I never said it was a perfect plan but it does work very well and I get cheap tickets every time I travel. The best way to go is to look on the internet for the companies that are in close contact with the airlines and track the cheap tickets and how fast they go down in cost every hour of every day until the actual departure of the flight.
The best part about these internet pages is that they provide a valuable service and it cost absolutely nothing. They provide this cheap ticket service because they want you to book your flight with them and allow them to get a cut. I for one do not trust these websites so I take the information that they provide and go to the airline with the price that I have learned.
Since there are no real secrets as to where you got the information from and they know that they are willing to accept that mount they will accept the cheap ticket fare and book it for you themselves. This is the best way to guarantee that no scam artist is taking advantage of you and pretending to offer the cheap tickets and taking your money and running.
The next way to go about getting a hold of cheap air tickets is to get the miles that the credit card company gives you. The cool thing about this is that you have to spend money everyday anyway be it for food, clothes and basically everything else so why not earn money towards airline tickets in the process. This is the ultimate way to get cheap tickets because you are really not spending anything when you cash them in you are simply getting it fro free. Free is cheap any way you slice it.
