10+1 Tips on how to book the cheapest flight

I usually spend hours and hours before deciding and booking a flight. I search on various search engines, I watch the prices go up as the days pass by in order to book the cheapest flight, but usually, I end up booking a higher price (compared to the price I first found). Below I'm listing some tips you need to have in mind if you want to get the cheapest flight. 1. If you find a cheap fare just book it, don't think about it. If you think of it over and over again the fare will most likely go up when you decide to finally book it. The best time to book your flight is today, now. 2. Try to search and compare prices Skyscanner as far as I know if one of the most popular flight search engines.  Try to search for the same flight on travel search engines but also make sure to check the airline's website too, it might be cheaper. 3. Book 6 weeks in advance Prices drop below the average fare 6 weeks before you travel. 4. Book last-minute flights When an airline hasn't filled a flight, they will cut down their prices. So if you are flexible you should try this. 5. Travel on Tuesday or Wednesday According to FareCompare Tuesdays and Wednesdays are generally the least expensive days to take a flight while Friday and Sunday are the most expensive. 6.Combine two flights You might find it much cheaper to combine two low-cost airline tickets compared to one direct. Make sure to check all the available options. 7. Become a frequent flier Sign up for the frequent flier schemes so you can gather miles and spend them later by getting cheaper/free tickets. 8. Fly early in the morning Early morning flights are the cheapest. 9. Fly off-peak Avoid flying during half term/school holidays, high summer season, bank holiday breaks. 10. Fly to the secondary airport Most destinations have two airports. The primary one is more expensive compared to the second one (low-cost airlines fly there). 11. Join airline mailing lists By signing up on airline mailing lists you'll [...]

4 Cheap Travel Destinations

Another collaboration post with three great lady travel bloggers recommending cheap travel destinations. This posts will introduce you 4 places to travel on a low budget (if you are looking for that option!). Destinations reveal in this post include, Krakow in Poland, Albania, Lambok and Tanjung Pinang in Indonesia. Enjoy reading the following recommendations based on real stories. Albania: Katalin from Our Life Our Travel  Albania is one of the cheapest and most beautiful countries in Europe. Me and my husband spent there a month this year while traveling around the Balkans, and it was our top country. The mountains are amazing, the beaches have crystal clear water, and they are less developed and less crowded than elsewhere in the continent. The hostel prices start from 5 euro per night, the hotels are also cheap, although we decided to rent our own house which costed the same as the hostels would have. Local food and good beer have low price. Fresh products are sold at the market places every day. Eating out is easily affordable even every night, just make sure you eat with locals and don’t end up a place serving only tourists. The public transportation is cheap as well, but we warned, it is quite slow.  An own car gives you mobility, and the road conditions not as bad as they were ten years ago. Only the driving culture needs more improvement. One of the best beach we’ve been was at Borsh. The seaside is surrounded by hills with olive trees. The beach is wide, clean, and the hotel business just about to starts.

Situated east of Bali, Lombok is Bali’s lesser known yet cooler neighbor. Not riddled with tourists the island is obviously [...]
