Low Rates With Low-Fare Airlines

Oct 31, 2007
It is actually surprising how competition can make a product cheap. The best example of this is certainly airline service. Today with so several big and small flight operators plying all over the world, it is affirmed that the prices had to go down. And the fall has actually been drastic over the past decade itself. But let us not be all too jubilant about it yet. Even with the reduced prices, air travel still remains unaffordable to several of us, and it becomes a very difficult proposition for someone who has to travel many times a year.

However, if you have the right knowledge, it becomes very simple to save good money on air travel. There are many options indeed how you can save some good amount of the ticket fares. This Canadian airline has many options that can make air journey extremely affordable for the ordinary tourist. Here we review some of the methods:

(i) The first method to save some money is to make use of the air miles program. This is a program that all major airlines provide for the people who fly oftentimes with them. With low-fare airlines, when you book online, you will get one reward mile for every $20 you spend on ticket booking. That does translate into tidy savings, since these reward miles can be used later for making more flight bookings. The advantage with low-fare airlines are they count even the service charges such as baggage charges and the kennel charges for their air miles. It is not necessary to have a return trip either; they give air miles for single flights.

(ii) Most low-fare airlines have their own credit cards, like low-cost airlines are own Mosaik MasterCard. If you own airlines cards and you make the booking through the card, then you can save much more air miles. People booking with the Mosaik MasterCard can get one reward point for each $10 they spend on the flight booking.

(iii) Booking early is often a very good way to save money. With major airlines that are fully booked days in advance, it is really a good idea to make an advance reservation on the flight. Not only will you be availing of low rates, but you will also be making your flight secure.

(iv) Take advantage of the promotional offers. When a flight operator includes a new flight or a new route, they will mostly provide these at incredibly low rates for promotion. This is the case with all growing airlines. If you keep your feelers out, you can sense such great bargains and save pretty money on your air travel.

Air travel is not all that expensive as it is made out to be, if you know exactly where the savings lie. Make use of these the next season you fly, and you will be amazed at the amount of money you can save over a period of time from your traveling expenses.
