Up in the Air: The Real Cost of Flying
In order to help you make the most out of your travel plans, be sure to follow these helpful flying tips:
1. Do research
Research the best time to fly and when prices can be found out their lowest. Bing.com has some great travel information, including the “best time to fly” and “last minute flight deals.”
2. Consider additional fees
Remember that in addition to your flight, you may also be paying checked luggage fees, parking fees, food and beverage (unless you enjoy airplane pretzel packs). On flights these days, you may also find yourself forking over money for comforts such as pillows, blankets, and headphones.
3. Use your perks
If you travel often, consider using a credit card with airline mile perks. They can also help you sweet seat upgrades and other bonuses like free travel insurance.
