Should You Change Airlines Enroute to Save Money on Airfare?

Looking for airfare deals in unusual ways, lets consider the following airfare bargain scenarion…

Should you change airlines in the middle of a trip in order to save a few bucks on airfare? Is it worth the inconvenience of extra boarding passes, terminal changes, luggage worries, etc…?

It may surprise you, but experts agree that the answer is now an undeniable “YES”. What was once considered a no-no and an extreme inconvenience is now considered a wise move for the airfare bargain seeker.

According to an article on the Cheapest Airfare Blog,

“While most travelers will fly on one airline clear through to their final destination, combining flights on different airlines is often more cost effective. For instance, an east coast flight to Hawaii may be cheaper on Delta from New York to Los Angeles with a transfer to Aloha for the flight across the Pacific.If you find yourself in a situation where you are changing airlines mid-trip, remember that most airlines will transfer your luggage automatically.”

The fact that most airlines will transfer your luggage automatically has made the prospect of changing airlines enroute more acceptable, and the savings can really add up!

Where Can I Find the Best Last Minute Flights?

Q. I have some rather unexpected time off and wonder if there’s a good cheap airline you would recommend for last minute flights. My flight times are pretty flexible - I just don’t have a lot of money. I’ve tried cheapseats, expedia, farecast, and the general lot. I just want to know if you know anything extra.

A. According to a post on the Last Minute Flight Deals Blog,

“Travelzoo always has listings for last minute flight deals, particularly for travel in the next few days or over the next weekend. Right now. it has a nice list of last minute flight deals for Thanksgiving. In terms of getting a great deal 2 hours in advance, that would be more difficult.”

I also agree with their recommendation to try searching Kayak for lasat minute flights. I’ve had some real success with Kayak – even picked up a deal on a flight that I needed to jump on in less than two hours!!

Flying to Japan? Find the Cheapest Flights

Airfare to Japan

Looking for the cheapest airline flights to Japan?

Good for you! Japan is now considered an “a-list” destination for travel – one of the hottest destinations in the world for people of all ages. The technology edge and the sheer amount of activities available makes Japan ideal for vacationers and business people alike.

Finding the cheapest airline flights to Japan is easier than ever, thanks to mega-search sites like Kayak and negotiation sites like riceline. Lets take a look at some ways to find the cheapest flights.

We’ve all seen the commercials with famous actors telling us how to get the cheapest airline flights and cheapest hotel prices. Most people just dismiss these commercials as invasive advertising that probably doesn’t follow through. The bidding sites and price matching sites offer some amazing deals however – deals that you won’t get by simply visiting an airline’s website or calling them directly. You can sometimes save hundreds of dollars by using bidding sites because they have access to very specific schedules and can pinpoint the best times available to fly.

Travel agents still exist, and they can be an super helpful in finding the cheapest airline flights. Travel agents have established relationships with airlines and ticket agents so they may be able to find special deals that you just can’t get anywhere else. You might even be able to get free hotel rooms or attraction discounts as well.
So how do you find the cheapest airline flights…? You can always call various airlines to see what types of offers they have available, but why not check out mega-search and bidding sites first, talk to travel agents second, and use the direct site as a last resort.

Good luck in finding the cheapest airline flights!
