Getting Great Deals on Cheap Airline Tickets Anytime

Updated on November 11, 2015

When searching for cheap airline tickets there are a few things to remember when you want to find good travel deals these days.

Many factors are involved such as flexibility in travel times, dates and the destinations.

Other factors may include the time of year that you travel and how early you can make your flight reservations. All of these and more can play an important part in finding the lowest possible airline fares for your travel.

Offline Travel Agents and Online Sites

Searching for great deals through offline travel agents or online sites could help you find discount airline tickets and excellent travel deals. Quite a few airline sites offer various functions that you can use to find the cheapest air fares to a variety of domestic or international destinations.


For the most part, getting cheap airline tickets depends on your planning and your budget. There are several travel agents online that can provide you with the best solutions to save you money regardless of the time you travel.

Make Reservations 30 Days In Advance

When planning a trip, one of the first things you should do to get the cheapest tickets is make your airline reservations and book your tickets thirty days in advance. In some cases, advanced booking could help you get a discount of up to 50%. Search for airline sites or travel agencies that allow you to book up to three months in advance for these kinds of travel deals.


You will be surprised to know that there are many little tips for cheap airline tickets that you can use each time you travel. Many of these tips may be overlooked while individuals search for low fares.

Call and Compare Cheaper Fares

One great way to find cheap airline tickets is to contact the airlines by phone and ask for any available discounts. Go online and search different travel websites and compare the cheaper fares quoted by the airline. Always remember to call the airlines back and confirm the fares you found online before you book the flight.

Booking your hotels with your airline tickets is also an excellent way to find discounts on your travel plans. There are special discounts on combined hotel and airfare bookings that can save you more that 40% in discounts. You should also check with the travel agents directly to compare the quotes you find online as well.

Best Days of the Week to Travel for Lower Air Fares

Getting cheap airline tickets can depend on the day of the week and time of day that you decide to travel. According to many online travel sites, Wednesday is the best day to travel for the cheapest flights, followed by Tuesdays and Saturdays. During the day, you could find the best air fares if you depart on the first available flight of the day or catch a red-eye flight at midnight.


If you plan to travel during a part of the year that includes a holiday such as Thanksgiving, you should book your airline tickets at least a month or more in advance.

This is probably the best way to get cheap airline tickets during the holiday season, because most fares will be much more expensive a week or so before the actual holiday.
