At some point in our lives, I think it's important to go out and see the world. It's too easy to get stuck in our lives, surrounding the same walls and borders for years at a time. If you have most travelers, they will tell you the best times of their lives spent traveling.
Those people who have the most free time on their hands seem to be the ones who make the most of their trips. Those people would of course be without permanent jobs to tie them up. Mostly the pre- or post-college crowd, as well as the retired crowd. Everyone else seems too busy.
So, this article is aimed at both those age groups, because they have thin wallets and lightweight wallets. Not having a real job, has a tendency to do that to people.
According to the same axiom that young people are wasted on the elderly, so do they. If our middle-aged population were to spend more time traveling, then maybe that group would be more tolerant of different cultures and take care of world affairs. Instead, they have their nose to the grinder.
The reason to get cheaper airfare is such a popular occupation, is that the people traveling, really need to save some money. Or maybe, simply because they prefer to spend that travel budget on a better hotel, and hang out at hotels and restaurants.
So, now that I've convinced you to hunt for some cheap tickets, you probably hope I can give you some tips. Well in fact I can. Good work on your part, but as they say, nothing is free. Including barges.
If you are going on vacation to relax, then it may be a good idea to start relaxing a little early. Relax, I mean relaxed attitude towards dates. When you go out and come back, it's not that important, it's the being there that matters. Being a little lazy about your dates can get you cheaper tickets.
It's another thing to look at as well. When airlines go overboard, they often ask people to give up their seats for free tickets for future flights. I always say yes.
Don't be a procrastinator when it comes to booking your holiday flights. Airlines do not like crowds, but they do love people who buy their tickets early. And to show you just how much, they will pay you less money.
Say no to flying between Friday to Monday. This is the busiest time at airports and for airlines. As a result of that demand for tickets, they can charge more money, and they do. Tuesdays through Thursdays are the least expensive times to get cheap tickets.
