Finding air tickets very expensive?
No, need to worry. Flying by aircraft is very expensive these days. But as time is money, so many people
prefer buying air tickets rather than railways tickets to save time, and comfort. Actually traveling by aircraft has become luxury and status.
Can you balance your status with some little money?
Absolutely, the answer to the question is ‘NO‘. You can’t make your status down 😛
Sometimes you see the airplane ticket rates touching sky and on another date the same flight is at very low price ‘But How?‘. Below I will discuss all the tips how to get cheap air tickets.
Tactics to buy cheap Air Tickets
1. 2 months Pre-booking
Buy your tickets at least 2-3 months before your travel date. As the date comes near the price becomes 4x times the lowest fare.
It is my personal experience once I travelled with my family to Chennai with all three tickets for just Rs.6,400/- and the other time, it was an emergency so I booked ticket 1 day before and got one single ticket of the same flight for Rs.10,000/-. That is a huge difference and the personals travelling.

The above image illustrates the difference. Airline companies take advantage of your emergency.
2. Alternative Airport
Many travellers without thinking sometimes book air tickets at much higher rates, but they are not alert that they can get air tickets at half price for a near airport. Like if you are travelling to South India and want to go visit Chennai then you can switch your route from
New Delhi – Chennai to New Delhi – Banglore
It hardly takes time to reach Chennai from Banglore, when you can save about Rs.5,000.

3. Stay home the festival day
Don’t travel on a festival day, rather travel before or after that festival day. Airline companies rise their price 3x times on the festive season. Because most people, businessmen prefer going back home on these days.
You can even notice the price difference in summer and winter season. Flights are some but costly in summer than in winters. So, prefer making your travelling tour in winters and enjoy the snow.
Actually, I personally like winters and snow.
4. Compare on Different websites
After making sure your travel date and time, don’t hurry to book your flight straight away from one website. Search and hunt for the lowest price available. If you going on a holiday trip, give Tripadvisor a chance.
