In 2013, all low budget airlines competed to provide cheap airline ticket prices. At that time we can go to Medan by Jakarta just pay 110.00 IDR for an airline ticket. But, now the regulation has changed. To get the cheap airline tickets are a little bit difficult. But it doesn’t mean impossible. Because, being able to get cheap airline tickets is a fortune, but also need an effort. This is the strategy to get the cheap airlines ticket.
Determined Where You Will Go
Your goal is to determine the best time to buy a ticket to get the cheapest price. If you preferred route which route that many airlines serve such as Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Japan, and China, so you should be smart to read the prices, because the price tends the fluctuate. So if you find one price you can think is the cheapest price you can get, I suggest that you buy the ticket right away. But if the route that you choose is a route that not served by a low-budget airline or not a crowded tourist rote, so whenever you buy the ticket, both one months or even a week before departure, the price will not show a significant difference.
Pay Attention To The Airlines
After choosing the route, pay attention to the airlines that serve the route. The trend is the Low-Cost Carrier (LCC) it means that the price is cheaper if ordered from a long time before and increases if ordered only a few weeks or days before departure. While full-service airlines tend to apply year-round fare on the price of airlines tickets so that it is more or less the same throughout the year. In fact, sometimes the price of full-service airline tickets can be cheaper than LCC if we buy them closer to the day departure.
The Period Of Trip
You may attention to cay you go and go back home. Weekends, long weekends, and holiday seasons are always expensive. So, try to vacation in the low season period such as September-November and February-April. Besides that, flight days and return determine the price of your ticket. The combination of Friday-Sunday, Friday-Monday, Saturday-Sunday, or Saturday-Monday is the most expensive combination. If you want to find the low price you need to make a day combinations Tuesday-Thursday, Wednesday-Friday, Saturday-Tuesday, and Sunday-Wednesday.
Pay Attention To Your Departure Date
After selecting the day, you may also pay attention to your departure date. Based on the observation the airplanes ticket on the 20’s tends to be cheaper than the beginning or mid-month. This could be because the airlines consider that the 20th is an old date and some people no money anymore to make a trip. So, the airline also provides low prices in this period, so that their seats are will be filled.
The Trend Of The Airlines Promo
You need to follow the airline newsletter, like follow airline social media accounts, and learn about the trends. Learn when the airlines issued promos and type of promos. In this way, you will know when the airlines offered the promo and discount. In this way you may also know the average the ticket price of that airlines, so you can be lucky to find the time to get the cheapest price.
