TOP-3 easy ways to make any trip cheaper

TOP-3 easy ways to make any trip cheaper

Even in pre-Covid times, not everyone could afford to travel abroad. Now, when the tourism sector is in the worst crisis since the Second World War, the cost of travel has increased manifold.

As soon as a new direction opens, the prices for vouchers there immediately skyrocket! Take, for example, tours for the Egyptian New Year holidays: a four-star hotel room can cost 200-300 thousand for two. In this light, it seems reasonable to abandon the services of tour operators and try to determine the format of your vacation yourself. Our life hacks made of this material can help you with this.

Use incognito mode when searching for tickets and hotels

In most applications and services for travelers, the history of visits from certain IPs is saved. In the event that you regularly visit the websites of certain operators, hotels or air carriers, monitoring prices in dynamics for certain days, the sites will remember you. If you continue to visit the same resources, it will become clear that you are interested in tickets or accommodation for certain dates, waiting for a reduction in the cost. You can't wait: you are in the spotlight, which means that prices will inevitably soar.

This also applies to sites that carry out aggregation and allow tourists to save time. Therefore, even if you begin to "monitor" the prices for a trip for several months, you will still fall under the hood.

When are the best ticket prices?

Ticket pricing is a dynamic process. Just by buying travel documents at the right time, you can save up to 10% on their cost. In case you plan to travel during the holiday or holiday season, you should make a reservation 4 months or even six months before the trip.

In the off-season period, the time gap is slightly less, but it is better to do it at least for a couple of months. The cost of domestic flights becomes minimal in the range from 40 to 60 days before departure.

The worst thing is to make a reservation a couple of weeks before departure - in this case, you will provide yourself with the most expensive tickets.

Use a VPN

When you look at local websites to select tickets, hotels and car rentals, it is better to use the VPN services of the state to which you are going. The fact is that for foreigners, prices are always higher – sites will find out where you are and put the maximum price. In case you successfully pretend to be a local, the reservation can come out 10-15% cheaper.
