How Not To Get The Cheapest Flight Tickets

It seems everyone is going on and on about how to get cheap flights and the best deals from the airlines. The emphasis is firmly on the means to getting these cheap flight tickets. Funny though, most people are doing things wrong. I mean, if people were getting it right, how come there are so many complaints and angry customers? Personally, I believe that a lot of people are been fed the wrong information such that they take the wrong turns when scouting for the elusive cheapest flight tickets. Well, it seems to me that there are some things that travelers need to know about cheap flight to Europe that do not work. In other words, the things they shouldn’t do when looking for means of getting cheapest airfare for their travels.
i. Avoid The Hype: There is far too much hype out there today with regards the issue of  cheap flight tickets. Personally, I find it a bit irritating because it has also become an avenue for people to get duped as many fake sites are taking advantage of unwary passengers. So, first things first, dump the hype and use your native intelligence to seek out the nice deals that can fetch you cheap holidays.
ii. Get Impatient: This is one of the most effective ways of missing out on a great deal. When you are impatient, you are likely to go for the very first deal that you come across.The major downside of doing so is that it will likely not be the best deal you will get. So, keep yourself in check by remembering to keep the bigger picture of the very best deal in mind.
iii. Avoid the Airlines Websites: A lot of people just keep looking for great deals on the sites belonging to third parties without even bothering to check out what the airlines have on their sites. The fact is that some of the best deals will be found on the airlines’ own sites. You will definitely find this true of many of the big airlines in Europe and the UK. I always advise that travelers visit the airline’s site to get the update on their prices.
iv. Be Inflexible: Again one of the surest ways of avoiding a good deal. People who are inflexible want things their own way and usually pay the price for it. You simply must be prepared to adjust to meet the fluidity of the market in order get that juicy ticket to drop on your lap. If you insist on travelling on a particular day or at a particular time, there is a likelihood of running in the direction opposite from the cheap ticket and the opportunity to compare holidays.
v. Keep Making Changes in Your Departure Date: It seems airlines get really annoyed when you alter the date of your departure after purchasing your ticket and so they impose a penalty. If you are planning for cheap flights to Dubai, you could very easily rack up a bill of $75 by just making a change in your departure date.Compare flight prices, make your booking and try to stick to it.
