How to Book Cheaper Flights Online
Are you a frequent flyer, like me?
Do you book your flights online?
Have you ever wondered why a flight you checked the price on one day, is more expensive the next time you look?
Then read on to learn how to get cheaper online flights.
If you are anything like me, you have a group of favourite airlines who you look up.
Unless travel has got to be on a certain day, you may give the airline's website a range of dates that are suitable for travel.
The first time you check them, you may see some really good deals in terms of price as well as flight times.
But, you know, when you are making a casual forage into the idea of travelling from A to B within a certain timescale, you are perhaps not ready to make that booking.
You just want to know a rough idea of what is available, and at what price.
So you find a flight at a great price, but you are not sure that the date suits, so you come out of the website while you check the competition from your other favourite airlines, to see what is on offer.
After checking round them all, you decide on the cheapest or perhaps the one that offers flight times most suited to your particular itinerary.
If at that point, you don't make the booking for whatever reason, you don't worry too much because there is always tomorrow.
Tomorrow comes, and you go back to the airline's site, only to find that the price has risen!
This seems to happen frequently, and not just with airlines, but with domain sellers and many other online services.
A big hint to tell you what is wrong is when within a day or two you receive an email from the airline offering you special deals on the exact flight you were looking up.
This can only happen if you have flown with them before, so they have your email address.
This address goes hand-in-hand with the cookies these companies are depositing on your computer every time you access their website.
So, you get one chance to book a cheap flight, and that is the first time you access their site.
After that, the price rises every time you look. They know they have you hooked. You want that flight, or you wouldn't have returned.
The price rises each time too.
So, the simple solution, whether they have your email address or not, is to simply clean your cookies after each visitation to their site.
Then, when you return, you will be treated as a new customer, and will be offered their cheapest deals each and every time you look.
