Budget Travel: Getting Great Deals When You Fly

List: Posted: 09/12/11

Vacations are our escape from the minutiae of day to day life.  We take them whenever possible just to get away from stress for a few days or a few weeks.  Unfortunately, in today’s economy it can be hard to get the money you need to fly off to some remote destination.  Here is how you can fly on a budget so that you can still enjoy your vacation time.

 

Slum it - With Style

 

One thing to consider when you fly is passing up the amenities.  Giving up a nonstop flight or passing on first class can help you save a lot of money.

 

Ask About Flight Specials

 

Many airlines also offer incredible deals on last minute airline tickets.  If you don’t have your heart set on a particular destination, it can help to call the airline and ask what specials they have on flights that aren’t fully booked.

 

Check Travel Discount Websites

 

Another great way to fly on a budget is to consider travel discount websites.  Name your own price websites and similar offerings can help you save significantly on the cost of your vacation.

 

Consider a Combo Package

 

Many of these deals get even better if you are willing to combine hotel and rental car costs together.  With a great package deal you can fly for a small percentage of what the tickets would have cost separately.

You can certainly fly on a low budget.  The key is simply to be flexible.  Even if you have a specific destination in mind, flexibility on the airline, class, or length of your flight can help you save a ton of money when you fly.
