Tips on Getting Cheap Tickets to Turks and Caicos
For some people, the actual planning process is one of the most enjoyable parts of taking a vacation. It’s always a challenge to hunt down the best flight deals, so here are a few tips:
1. Search for tickets one seat at a time
If you are searching for tickets for your family, if you really want to save money, try searching by one ticket at a time. This is because most automated systems will show you the highest fare for all the tickets. If you try searching one seat at a time, there may be limited seats on sale.
2. Search at midweek
Airlines tend to launch their sales on Tuesdays and end them on Thursdays, so don’t limit your searches to the weekends.
3. Fly on a holiday
It may seem counterintuitive, but the biggest savings can be found by flying on the actual holiday, such as Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. The exception is if you’re traveling over a three-day weekend—then, everyone is looking to fly on the actual holiday, so that’s the perfect time to try and extend your vacation by a day.
4. Fly on a Tuesday, Wednesday or a Saturday
Why? Because planes are least full on these days of the week, these flights usually have the lowest fares.
5. Monitor Twitter, Facebook and airline emails
Follow your favorite airlines on social media in addition to signing up for discount online travel company emails.
