Here today with a travel post. Want to know where to go for great deals? I have a few starter tips for you.
These are the two sites that I use most frequently for booking flights:
Kayak – Why I like this site: Kayak has a feature where you can be flexible with your dates (+- 3 days) and they search so many other sites, so it saves you a lot of time.
Skyscanner – Why I like this site: In addition to searching the web for the lowest prices, you can put your destination as “everywhere” if you just want to explore or see which flight is cheapest near you. I love it!
Two Facebook Pages you should follow for “Error Fares or Glitch Fares”:
Definitely follow if you’re about that travel life! #TravelChic
FYI about error fares:
- These are mistakes…so they aren’t guaranteed to be there long.
- If you see an error fare -JUST BOOK IT – no time to contemplate. But make sure to view the cancellation policy.
- Do not call the airline if you see an error fare…because like I said it’s a mistake (that works in your favor) so once they know about the mistake they will fix it. Get it?
- If the flight is out of another city you can probably fly to that city very cheaply and still get a good bargain.
Real Life Example: I live in South Korea. I’m returning to the USA. Flights from SK to USA are upwards of $1000. There was an error fare from Taiwan to USA for $197. Yes, $197. So of course I jumped on it (#2) within the next ten minutes. FYI (#4) I am taking a flight that’s right around $100 to get to Taiwan. So instead of paying $1000+ to get home I’m playing less than $350. #WIN FYI: I checked the next day and the flight was $853 (#1).
