Finding seat sales has become a quest for some people. When an airline notices a number of unsold tickets they hold seat sales. Seat sales usually take place within 30 days before the departure. People booking at the last minute can save money if they can find seat sales. Unfortunately in many tales seat sales have been grown into mythical proportions. Too often people take risks with their travel plans trying to save money waiting for seat sales that don’t happen.
The reality of seat sales is straightforward. They don’t actually take place very often but when they do you can get cheap flights. There are some disadvantages waiting for seat sales to book your tickets. You hope you will get discount airfare but there are times when ticket prices increase closer to the departure date. Flights do sell out, so you need to be careful about waiting to buy your tickets. If you wait too long there might not be any to buy. It is recommended that you don’t wait for seat sales but if you do find one take advantage of it.
Instead of waiting for seat sales you should book airline tickets around four months before your trip. That is when discount airfare is most commonly available. There might be some cheap flights even if you book one to three months ahead of your departure date. Looking closer to the take off date makes it more difficult to find discount airfare. When it comes to finding discount airfare sooner is better.
If your time in Athens is as, if not more, important to you than discount airfare then take a moment and talk with one of the many tripcentral.ca travel agents who have been there. They can give you advice about Athens so that you can benefit from their experiences. The difference with travel agents at tripcentral.ca is that they don’t tell you to go with what is popular or the cheapest at the moment. They understand this is your trip and are more interested in finding out what you actually want out of your trip. Only you know what is more valuable to you - discount airfare, specific locations or activities. Also many people are not aware that cheapest is not the same as the best value for your money. Tripcentral.ca travel agents discus with you what your interests, budget and comfort preferences are. Then they will recommend different options that will give you the best value for your money.
When shopping for tickets you may come across cheap flights to Athens from border cities. If you can save money you should consider what gives you the best value for your money. Always balance the savings from discount airfare with any inconvenience or added expenses getting to and from a border city. Savings from cheap flights in a border city may not be real savings once the actual cost of travelling to the different airports is compared. Cheap flights to Athens are only valuable when they actually save you money.
