  • How to Save Money on Travel (Without Sacrificing Insurance) II: The Tickets

    Filed Under: Blogging

Saving on international travel, without thinking of skimping on travel insurance may seem like a good deal, but in fact, there are several other good deals that can net you a lot more savings! Especially on airfare.

If you’re looking for tickets for international flights, first things first, you’d want to look for the best rates possible. Needless to say, for many of us, the first stop is actually a comparison web site, similar to insurance comparison web sites.

When shopping for tickets, check and see if there are dates around your preferred dates for a lower price. Very often, Saturday flights are cheaper than Friday flights, and might be a good option for international flights, especially if you are taking many days off work anyway.

Also, if you have the risky streak in you, look for last-minute airfares. These are typically much lower than regular published fares, but you also run the risk of not getting good deals for your particular sector. Another way to notch up great airfares on comparison sites is by monitoring prices even after you purchase them. You might get a refund of the difference if you just ask.

Travel tip: When booking a flight online, most sites offer trip insurance as a package, along with the ticket. Be careful about selecting the insurance without reading the fine print.
