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 [...]

Coronavirus: What Travellers need to know

The spread of coronavirus is making travellers around the world worried. Health officials are urging everyone to take extra precautions and take extra measures in order to avoid influenza. Some flights have been suspended The majority of flights to China have been suspended. If you have upcoming travel plans you are advised to check with the airlines and look for advisories posted on carriers' websites. If you're planning to travel abroad and are concerned about coronavirus, check the country by country travel advice on GOV.UK. Should I cancel or postpone my travel plans? It has been recommended that elderly travellers and those with underlying health conditions, should delay or avoid traveling to areas that are experiencing ongoing transmission of COVID-19. The disease can be fatal for people who are above 65 years or who have chronic illnesses. That list of countries experiencing local transmissions is updated daily by the World Health Organization. For more information visit the website to view the latest situation reports. In Asia, it currently includes China, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia. European countries on the list are Italy, France, Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Norway, the Netherlands, Sweden, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Greece and Romania. Three countries in the Middle East are listed - Iran, the United Arab Emirates and Lebanon. What else should I have in mind? If you decide to travel, even if its destinations without major cases, you should consider the quality of healthcare available in the region you are going to if you become ill. You may be caught up in quarantine if an outbreak occurs. Your flight plans may get disrupted because other passengers are opting not to travel. Even in areas without major outbreaks, large numbers of cancellations and no-shows by customers have led airlines to ground flights and disrupting tens of thousands of passengers. If you wish to cancel an existing flight or hotel booking, then you will have to bear the cost. How can I protect myself if I'm traveling? Wash your hands frequently, cover your nose and mouth [...]

Items Travellers Forget to Pack

Dear Traveller, If you are already a traveller who think knows you have everything on you package list whilst travelling, think twice. Of course you’ll be taking with you your passport, money, clothes and all the necessary travel items however there are a few accessories and things you might have never consider taking with you or always forget. Below I’m listing the most common things travellers forget to pack in their suitcase and are very important to have with them. I am also recommending you the exact travel things to buy from Amazon which I've carefully selected for you based on price and quality. 1. Refillable Travel Bottle With these 100ml bottles and jars you can take your liquids and creams along in your hand luggage 2.Travel Refillable Mini Perfume Bottle You can still take your favourite perfume with you in this small perfume bottle without having to take whole bottle. 3. Travel Pillow Getting some sleep whilst on the plane, the train or the bus it very important. Having a travel pillow with you will help you get a better sleep and be more comfortable. The pillow I'm recommending also comes with ear plugs and a cover. 4.EarPlugs Having earplugs with you on the plane will relieve any air pressure you might feel, will reduce noise and protect your ears from flight ear discomfort. 5.Drinking Bottle with Water Filter Having a Filtering Water Bottle will let you take clean and fresh water with you wherever you go. Especially if you happen to be travelling in countries where water is not the cleanest e.g. Ethiopia, Cambodia, Haiti, Ghana etc.  Investing in a filtration water bottle is the best you can do since you will be able to filter tap water over and over again wherever you go. 6.Windproof Umbrella I am not talking about any umbrella, this is a vented waterproofed umbrella which prevent the umbrella from turning inside out when it’s windy. 7.Sewing Kit It has saved me quite a lot of times. Having a sewing kit with you may save you and repair any rips [...]

Travel Destinations by other travel bloggers

With so many options on the world map its sometimes good asking the question, where should I travel and why, and see what other travelers have to say about a place they have been and loved it.  This post is thanks to some amazing travel bloggers out there who provided me some input for this collaboration post when I asked the question on a travel bloggers group: where should I travel and why and they recommended me a few travel destinations to consider.  From the places below I surely haven't heard of Whitehaven Beach in Australia or Marrakech which is located in Marocco or Lubra in Nepal. Although I've been to Madrid twice, it's still remains an amazing place I would also recommend to anyone to visit. I would like to thank the following travel bloggers for their travel destination recommendation and wish them the best experiences in their travels. Enjoy. Hannah Galpin from Nomad'er How Far recommends Whitehaven Beach, the Whitsunday's, Australia. The place I am recommending is Whitehaven Beach, the Whitsunday's, Australia. Why? Because it is an unspoilt dessert island, surrounded by the clearest ocean I have ever seen, with the whitest silica sands underfoot. There are many beautiful places in the world, but this spot made me feel special; it was almost a spiritual experience, standing in the gentle shallows, staring out to a sea of the purest blue. I felt like Leo Dicaprio in 'The Beach', wowed at the existence of a true paradise and my existence within it. The best thing about it, is that it isn't hard to get there, at all. We camped overnight, and used Scamper water taxi, who also supplied our water, cooking equipment and camp permits. Hannah Galpin from Nomad'er How Far recommends Whitehaven Beach Akriti Sharma from La Travel Chica  recommends Lubra Lubra is the place to be! This little lesser-known gem is a few miles of hiking away from Jomsom (Mustang) region of Nepal. The place is the last Bon village in Nepal with a handful of houses and an old monastery. Located approx. at [...]
