How to get cheap airline flight tickets

Updated on April 30, 2011

Do you want get cheap flight ticket for your next vacation?

We always think that our national carrier gives us the best deal.

However, if you search using travel search engines such,,, or you could get better offers.

Travel search engines allow you to compare prices and deals from the airlines easily.

I always thought that AirAsia gives the best offer in South East Asia. So, for the last trip to Singapore I booked my trip with AirAsia direct from their website.

AirAsia round trip fare from Penang to Singapore was RM 217 and plus taxes the total fare was RM 275.00

After few days, I checked in just to find what other airlines was offering for the round trip from Penang to Singapore. Totally forgot to check at wego and other sites in the first place.

I entered the flight arrival and departure destination in, select for one person and entered the same dates for the round trip and to my surprise I found out that JetStar was offering cheaper flight ticket.

JetStar flight ticket price was RM 169 (without taxes) for the round trip, whereas AirAsia price was RM 217 (without taxes). I could have save almost RM 50 for the trip.

Next time you want to buy airline flight tickets, do some searching using the travel search engines. It will help you to get the cheapest flight tickets.
