Choosing the best airfare has so many components, the cost being an obvious one but other factors can be equally as important. Some times the cheapest fares have the worst schedules and also have hidden extra charges at the very end of the booking process.
The golden rules of; research, book early and travel in off peak periods, maybe obvious enough but some other things to consider include the following:
- Are booking sites really the best way to go?
- What is worth paying more for?
- Is it better to use one carrier or multiple carriers?
- Can I arrive and leave from different airports with the same airline?
