How to Avail Huge Discounts in Your Air Travels?

By Amit Thingal Subscribe to RSS | January 6th 2012 | Views:

As it is the festive season of the year, most of the airlines have started throwing huge discounts on their airfare just to woo customers and rake in profit. Now as a customer it is your duty to be informed and do not fall for scams. Though most of these discounts are genuine and have no hidden costs, some of airlines indulge in scrupulous activities and make a trap for the customer to fall in. This article will help you identify such deceptions and will make you more aware of what goes in the industry.

Discounts have always been a great way for airlines to make money. Ironical as it may sound, by offering discounts and calling more customers, airlines make large profits than otherwise. Let us know how they do it. When it comes to festive seasons, the airlines hike the travel fares. Then they offer discounts and make profit from the hike. So in actual, airlines do not lose any money from fares. In fact there is no discount as well it is just a marketing gimmick in which a lot of air travellers fall without suspicion. So, is there a way out of this prank scheme, well there is so read on.

To make sure you never fall for such traps, always book your tickets well in advance. This would save your money and also keep your ticket reserved. Then check the trends in the airfare during the proximity to the festive season, you would be surprised to find that the prices of the tickets must have doubled. Then after a few days you would hear or see banners of huge discounts on their websites. This again means that there are no discounts for the customers but a smart way of making more money. Though there are some airlines like the Continental airlines booking and Northwest airlines booking services which are transparent but they should be treated as exception.

So, the next time you see some airline offering discounts shun them and research the internet for the best airfares. Owing to the popularity of internet, almost all of the airlines have their own websites which they update every day. Check on them and also go through customer review forums to find out the best deals. There are many experts online that will help you plan your travels for free. Ask them and also depend on your knowledge that you garnered through your research. Travel safe and never fall for such traps.
