Thanks to airlines, tourists may flights to really distant cities in three hours. Because of that, people are taking longer weekends in their jobs, to visit some popular capitals. If there were no planes, voyage like that will last for half day! The only inconvenience is to getting out from airfield to the city center – sometimes it is really far away. But there are taxis, and still it is shorter journey then by bus.
In past, we use to take even three bags for our vacations, collecting many of clothes, sport stuff, even food. Now, if we want to take all of it to our plane, it will cost us fortune! In cost of our ticket, we only have one bag (and how big it is, is up to rules of airline company) (read more). If we need to take extra bag with us (which can contains food) we must to pay extra for it. Often, if we buy registered luggage, it cost us twice! So when you are interested only in low-price flights, be wise during packing.
What take with me on board?
If you are taking only carry-on bag, you have to know few rules. Before your trip, be sure that size and weight of your luggage is permissible, to avoid extra costs. Also, you cannot handle any liquids (bigger then 100ml), food, drinks and sharp objects. It you have any of that, it will be took by guards. Beside your carry-on baggage, you may also have a personal item with you – it could be a purse, a backpack or briefcase – not to large and also without forbidden objects.
How to search for the best deal?
If you are arranging a very cheap holiday, you must to know how to buy airline ticket smart. You should avoid hot dates – July, August or longer weekends. If you are going to visit Rome, for example, try to get tickets for May, June or September flights – it could be even few times cheaper, but the temperature still should be good. Plus there are fewer tourists, so you avoid crowd on the beach .Find your ticket half year or couple days before your tour – first and last minute options usually are the cheapest. But sometimes first minute flights might be deleted, if it will be to few participants. On the other hand, if you buy last minute, you have to be aware that you may not find anything good, and you just go on holiday to any random destination.
