I believe we are lucky that these days, traveling no longer means breaking the bank. The airlines have gotten so competitive that the fares are at that level where almost all people can afford. In the spirit of utilizing every hard-earned cent, below are some tips I hope you find useful on how to save a little cash here and there when you’re planning a trip or actually on your little (or big) getaway.
1. Book your tickets early. That may not come as a shock to you but having said that, wait for seat sales at the same time. It can backfire when you book early during non-sale periods. Know the occurrence of these seat sales too (i.e. PAL’s midnight madness sale almost every weekend). Compare airline rates and list them down together with the flight schedules (I use MS Excel ). Know when is the peak time for the target destination as well because if you travel during those times, chances are hotel accommodations would be pricey.
