1) Book your tickets online
If you’re planning to do any activities or excursions on your trip, book them online.
Companies usually offer a discounted price when compared to buying in person.
Not only that but you’ll be able to pay with a credit card, it gives you some extra protection as well as additional credit card points.
2) Sign up for flight deals
When it comes to travel, your flight(s) will likely be your biggest expense.
Save money by signing up for flight deal websites.
You’ll get epic flight deals straight to your inbox, saving you time and money.
Also be sure to sign up for airline newsletters, since that is where they will announce their sales first!
3) Off Peak Seasons
If possible, try not to travel during peak season as the air tickets and accommodations will be much more costly during peak season.
If you really need to travel during peak season, try checking the air tickets pricing for tickets one day before or after your planned date (sometimes, the ticket price can varies a lot).
4) Don’t always fly direct
Sometimes it is cheaper to fly into airports close to your final destination, and then take a train or bus to where you need to go. When booking flights, always consider this option.
Be sure to shop around for your flight and know that direct isn’t always the cheapest route.

6) Choosing your seat in the plane
This is individual preference.
I would prefer to book aisle seats on international flights.
I really use the bathroom and I find it uncomfortable to ask other people to give me space if I´m on the window seat.
Also , I´m always tempted to go to my hand luggage in international flights to take out the book, or put it back, to take out some slippers or put it back…
I´m such a mess … so I really need the aisle seat.
7) Book flights 2-3 months in advance to get the best price.
Air tickets are normally cheaper during offer.
If there are no offers, try to book in advance as air tickets price tends to increase nearer to the departure date.
Don’t drive yourself too crazy trying to get the absolute cheapest fare.
Spending five hours to try to save $10 will cause you a lot of stress.
