I have always had a knack when getting the very best deals. I am talking about that. The belief ever since childhood has been that there is always a better deal out there for me and what happens? I have always found that deal. When i became old enough to make my own decisions regarding my travelling particularly air travel, I made it a place to look for the less expensive options. It is not easy but then with the establishment of more flight companies and the competition between them, the street had been smooth for travelers to get cheap routes for their travelling. Which i appear to get cheap routes whenever I choose to go by air to the covet of my friends and family and the last time I visited during the annual family reunion, they decided to pick my mind. How do i do it? It is not very hard and honestly, anyone can get better deals anytime.
As with anything else in life, I am always patient in trying to get a nice arrangement to manage my sometimes tight budget. Which i are related my research flights for cheap and this takes time. It involves making comparisons between what different flight companies have to offer and this is not what you want to rush into. As i said, it requires patience.
Additionally, I try to make sure that any travel plan of my own is done within reasonable time ahead. This way, I can research based on what the flight companies offer for that period far ahead. If there is going to be a promotional, I can act quickly and on time and perhaps, even get some perks as an early bird. In other words, as i told my children, create a schedule for your travel for three to six month periods and then do your research. Make sure that you update your quest as time passes.
One of the advantages of having a schedule and preparing in advance is the ability to adapt. Once I have been able to make my plans ahead, when i see an advantage in the system, I proceed to take advantage of it immediately. I am usually ready to move a day ahead of time as i have the luxury of having of having my time calculated.
One of the attributes of a individual who always gets better deals is that she asks questions. I make it a point to check out from the flight companies what ads, rebates or other are available and if I have already made my move only to find a better deal shortly afterwards, I also feel no abashment at calling the airline in question to check out whether my good deal can be ‘upgraded’. It sometimes is! This raised some eye brows at the reunion but then it is true. I also ensure that I look up the airlines’ websites for their own prices and the truth is, more often than not, they have better prices as they don’t charge the fees which some of the agents charge.
