While the current global economic climate doesn’t make it easy for every industry to thrive, there’s one that’s seemingly doing very well if you’re looking at the prices they’re able to charge the customer, and that’s the airline industry. Airline ticket prices continue to rise, while seating space and amenities on the flights appear to be on the decline.
While airline ticket prices may be rising annually, most people either have to or want to travel and for many of us, it’s a combination of both.
So what are your options if you need airline tickets, but you can’t afford the expense? The best thing to do is discover smart ways to find great deals.
Use Google Flights
Google Flights is an excellent travel tool that saves people time and money. As with most Google offerings, it’s designed for efficiency and to do the work for the user. Google Flights can be used not only for basic flight searches but also to uncover and explore new destinations. If you already have your destination in mind, go ahead and add your dates, where you’re leaving from and the airport you’ll be flying into, and let Google do the rest for you, including sending you updates when fares are low. That way, you’re not spending your time constantly checking travel sites. Google Flights also has a feature that lets you pull up a calendar showing the lowest fares around a certain date.
