Traveling isn’t cheap. At FLL Park Safe we’re committed to providing our customers with an affordable option for airport parking. However, we can’t control the rest of your travel accommodations. That’s why we decided to dedicate this blog to tips on how to save money on your next trip.
Typically the cheapest days for flights are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. Airlines will discount fares because people usually don’t want to fly on these days. You may also find cheaper rates for middle seats since no one likes those. Red eye flights are more often than not a cheaper option. If you have a short flight or can sleep easy on an airplane, we recommend checking for red eye flights.
Airplane fares are usually the most expensive when you book last minute. That doesn’t mean you should book six months in advance either. When airlines first release tickets they start at a high rate then eventually decrease to get more people to purchase. Eventually the price will spike as the date gets closer. According to CheapAir the magic number of days to book in advance is 47.
If you fly a lot, don’t forget to claim your miles! One of the easiest ways to get a free ticket is through frequent flyer miles. Especially if you fly on the same airline a lot. If you’re in the market for a new credit card, many credit card companies offer travel perks and frequent flyer miles.
We’ve all been there. You have one more flight until you’re home free, and then the intercom sounds, “Flight 1653 with service to Fort Lauderdale, Florida is overbooked and we’re looking for volunteers to get bumped to the next flight.” It may not sound the most tempting at the time, but getting bumped to another flight can really pay off. Most airlines offer $400 vouches, flyer miles, hotel accommodations and more.
