Top 4 Airfare Myths

There are many myths when it comes to booking cheap travel. Check out the top four below.


Save on Tuesday- For some reason, travelers and savers alike seem to think that Tuesday is some kind of magical day when it comes to cheap airfare. While there are many deals that you can find on a Tuesday, there are also plenty of other days in the week that can provide better deals. The truth is that airlines run deals many different times of the week, so be sure to stay on your toes and be flexible in order to secure the best deal possible.


Delete Your Internet Search History- This may be the silliest myth of all, but some believe that deleting your internet search history can trick the airlines into thinking that you deserve cheaper airfare than normal. This is based on the premise that airlines like to entice customers on their initial searches, but hold deals back from those who constantly seek them. This isn’t true in the least, as the whole system is based on supply and demand, and prudent searchers often find the best deals first.


Once you’re locked in, you’re locked in- Many travelers are hesitant to book a trip and seem to always wait for a crazy deal, as they believe that their price can’t improve once they’ve locked it in. On the contrary, there are several travel sites that will actually refund you the difference between the price you paid and the best price out there, assuming you weren’t able to secure the best possible deal yourself.


My Travel Site ALWAYS has the best deals- I’m not sure who thought of this one, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. With so much competition in the travel website space, the best deals are constantly moving from one website to another. If you’re going to catch the best fish in the travel game, you have to have several fishing nets spread across many ponds. This means checking several travel websites, including websites that aggregate deals from several others. This will help ensure that you get the best deal.
