How to Buy Airline Tickets


How to Buy Airline Tickets. Fly the friendly skies without your wallet
taking a wallop. You will need Internet access and credit card. Step 1. Start shopping online and over the phone for
tickets about four months before you want to fly out. Typically this is when airlines sell their
cheapest seats. Step 2. Understand that prices fluctuate randomly
during the day, due to sales and other factors. Tickets are not necessarily cheaper earlier
in the week than later, but Saturdays are usually the cheapest day. Step 3. Sign up for e-mail alerts on travel, airport,
and airline websites to keep up to date information on ticket prices. Look for hotel and airfare packages as package
costs are often lower. Step 4. Book your own connecting flights. Airlines will not sell tickets for connecting
flights less than forty-five minutes apart, but you can buy two separate tickets that
are often cheaper than one fare ticket. Book your own connection at your own risk. Be aware that if you book connecting flights
separately and you miss your connection, the airline is not obligated to rebook you for
free. Step 5. Visit a particular airline’s website or a
booking website like Travelocity or Orbitz. Select the details of your flight, including
the dates, destination, and whether you want a one-way or round-trip. Choose the best flight with the best price,
and pay for your flight with a credit card. Did you know In 1930, Boeing Air Transport
was the first airline to use female flight attendants.
