Newbie’s Guide To Singapore’s Budget Airlines

How can you pay for a trip if your budget is too tight? Certainly, saving for travel money is not an easy task, which is why a mix of creativity and effort will make your dream getaway a reality. Start by reducing your unnecessary expenses then, get buy a plane ticket at a good price.

There are many factors affecting the price of the ticket such as the airlines, the time and date of travel, and the route taken. Lucky for us, Singapore is the travel hub for all European, Australian, and United States flights. This is why there are countless possibilities to spend your holidays at an affordable price. On that note, here is the Newbie's Guide To Singapore's Budget Airlines…

  1. BOOK AT LEAST 5 MONTHS PRIOR

The simplest way to get cheaper flights is to book in advance because the more available seats there are, the less it will cost. And, the closer the departure date is from the present date, the higher the ticket price will be. So, book at least 5 months or 21 weeks prior to your intended departure date.

  1. FLY ON TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, OR SATURDAY

Did you know that the cheapest days to fly are usually Saturdays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays? You can save up to hundreds of dollars with this tip (i.e., for international flights)! Furthermore, if you are flying with your family and want to reduce the waiting time then, travel on a Saturday. This is because airports tend to be less crowded during that day.

  1. FLY ON OFF-PEAK HOURS

Flying on off-peak hours such as early in the morning or late in the evening can guarantee you a cheaper ticket. If your departure and return dates are flexible, you may play through the budget airlines' website to browse through the possible hours and get the cheaper fare.
