How To Get A Good Deal On International Flights

How To Get A Good Deal On International Flights: A blog about finding cheap international flights.

There are many ways to find good deals on international flights, and I’ll share them in future posts. But the first thing you need to do is to understand that there’s no such thing as a standard international flight. Instead, there are two completely different kinds of international flight: long haul, and short haul.

Most of the time, when people talk about international flights they mean long-haul flights—flights between continents or at least between countries far apart. But there’s another kind of international flight that’s usually much cheaper: short-haul ones within Europe or between nearby countries.

Trying to find a good deal on international flights can be a pain, especially in the USA where airlines do not compete internationally. There are some basic rules and tips that many people follow to try and get the best deal.

First off, look for flights about 7 weeks in advance. At this point many of the airlines will have opened up their flight schedules. The closer you get to the flight date, the more expensive it gets (in most cases).

Secondly, fly during the week. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are usually less expensive than Fridays and Saturdays. If you have to fly on a weekend or holiday, then try flying out early or late at night.

Thirdly, book your flight online through one of the major travel websites such as Expedia or Orbitz. These sites have real-time access to airline schedules and fares so they give you an accurate picture of what is available. You can also look at each of the airline’s own websites but comparing them all can take time so stick with an aggregator site if you want to search multiple airlines quickly.

A couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to find a ridiculously cheap flight from New York to Bangkok for $450 round trip. Since then, I’ve gotten a lot of questions about how I was able to do this so I thought it might be useful to write a blog post detailing exactly how I found the flight and how you can find cheap flights as well.

The first step is knowing where to look for good deals on international flights. There is no single best website or search engine for international flights and many of the sites that pop up early in your Google searches are not very good at finding cheap flights.

I usually start my search on Kayak Explore since it shows several months’ worth of prices for all destinations in the world without having to specify a particular city or date range. This can be helpful for seeing which cities have the cheapest flights throughout the year and when is the cheapest time to visit different parts of the world.

In the last few years, I’ve flown to Europe over a dozen times. During that time, I’ve learned how to find the best deals on international flights.

If you’re looking for cheap international flights, you can usually find them in the summer. The best time to buy tickets is during fall or early winter. To get a good deal, it’s best to do research online and then follow-up with a call to an airline representative. When searching online, make sure you look at multiple airline websites.

In addition to price and flight time, there are other factors that people should consider when booking a flight: whether they want a direct flight or one with stops; whether they want to fly first class or economy; and what amenities they need while flying (wifi, entertainment options).

We all know that flying is a hassle: the lines, the fees and the delays. But everything is even more expensive and annoying when you’re traveling internationally.

So how can you save money and time on international flights? Here are our top tips for finding cheap, enjoyable international flights.

First, know what your options are. You’ll have to choose between two basic types of flight for any trip: a direct flight and a connection. A direct flight will get you where you’re going the quickest, but it will cost more than a flight with connections, because airlines charge less for those flights that require more work from passengers (i.e., having to switch planes).

Second, try to fly during off peak times. If you’re flexible on dates and times to fly, this can be a great strategy for saving money on your international flight. Airlines tend to offer lower prices during off peak hours or days, in order to fill their seats with fewer empty spaces. This can be a great option if you don’t mind getting up at the crack of dawn or staying up late at night to catch those cheap flights!

Last time I did it, it was about $2,500 for the flights alone. I’m not sure if that’s still a good deal, but it’s definitely not cheap.

The most important thing is to start looking early. My friend told me to look at least six months in advance, and that sounds like good advice to me.

I would love to hear suggestions from others on how to get the best deal on international flights. Please leave comments below.
