One option to save money is with charter airfare. Charter airfare is determined well in advance. As a result charter airfare may end up being discount airfare.
Cheap flights are identified as best price on tripcentral.ca’s flight reservation page. The best value airfares are also displayed. Whenever possible evaluate best value airfares and cheap flights before you book. Best value airfares are considered to be the best value for your money and often provide you with more convenience and comfort than the cheap flights.
For travelers looking at the last minute they may find discount airfare with seat sales. Occasionally within the last 30 days airlines will have seat sales. It really depends on how many empty seats there are. Don’t risk your travel plans over seat sales that may not happen.
An unexpected down side with waiting for seat sales is when ticket prices go up, not down. You’re expecting discount airfare, but end up spending more because you waited. You also have to be vigilant in case the flight starts to book up. You can quickly go from predicting cheap flights to not going at all.
When shopping for tickets you may notice that airlines flying from border cities may have cheap flights to Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports. Always assess the savings from discount airfare or seat sales and any inconvenience or added travel expenses. Savings from cheap flights may not be real savings once the actual cost of travelling to the different airports is evaluated. Inexpensive tickets are only valuable when they actually save you money.
