5 Beneficial Ways to Book Cheap Flight Tickets

Got your eye on the next weekend getaway? Or ready to take off somewhere? Well, the cost of air travel is the biggest part of travel expenditure and thus, finding a cheap flight becomes much more important. Because, booking flight tickets or hotel is simple and easy, but cracking a cheap deal isn’t. The cost of flight should be as important as deciding the travel destination. Well, to some extent, paying more on airfare can be avoided by following these below-mentioned steps that may help you in minimizing the cost of travel:

  • Try to book wisely in advance: This is the first thing one should keep in mind while finding a cheap deal. If you don’t have that flexibility which allows you to take advantage of super-cheap airfare sales, then you must book tickets well in advance. Therefore, in order to get the lowest price, travelers must buy flights about two months before departure.

 

  • Check-out low-cost airlines: Do not forget that budget airlines exist for a reason. Therefore, booking flights from a no-frill airline is a good option. This is the sure-shot way of booking cheap flights online. These airlines may not offer you the same luxury as that of premiere airlines but, will lure you with extraordinary prices.

 

  • Opt for direct flights: This tip is not for everyone, but it may work for a few travelers. Usually, flying on direct flights is more expensive than the indirect flights. For example, a direct flight from Cleveland to Chennai is much higher than an indirect journey from Cleveland to Boston, then Boston to Dubai and Dubai to Chennai. You should consider multiple layovers to save more money. Though, it will be a bit annoying, but will help you to save more at your vacation destination rather than spending on flights booking.

 

  • Choose for economy class: Choosing economy class is the best way to save money on flight tickets. Rather than opting for a business class, you must opt for an economy class that helps you in saving hundreds of dollars. But, for this, you may have to sacrifice your comfort levels, such as limited dinner menu, baggage allowance etc.

 

  • Subscribe yourself to promotional offers: Travel websites notify you about special deals or coupon deals or the last-minute offers on air tickets. Thus, if you act quickly on them, you can save a lot of money.

 

On the whole, if you are planning for a holiday trip, then you must follow these above-mentioned tips that will help you in getting cheaper and exclusive deals.

A Trip to UAE: Dubai, Visa and Budget Options

There is something about Dubai that is homey and exotic at the same time. While the sharp spices and ethnic fabrics help you connect, the modish architecture and sizzling beach clubs let you marvel at its sight. And the golden sand, well that just pampers you snuggly. Moreover, the geographical position of the emirate involves less travelling hours, which makes for a quick escapade. Getting a Dubai visa too isn’t a hard drill.

The UAE visa process involves a short and simple procedure. UAE tourist visa for Indian citizens can be availed for a period of—14 days (single entry), 30 days (single or multiple entry) and 90 days (single or multiple entry). However, your UAE stay can’t exceed 30 days as per the Dubai visa requirements.

You can apply for UAE visa online. It will ideally require:

  • Duly filled visa application form,
  • Original passport for verification,
  • Onward and return confirmed tickets and
  • Recent passport size photographs (4.3 cms x 5.5 cms) preferably in a white background,
  • Applicable visa fees

A UAE visa also involves an age criteria. Men aged less than 22 and women below 30 years of age need to be accompanied by their father, mother or husband. If you are going for a solo trip and do not cross this age bar, a no objection certificate from your parent/guardian needs to be attached with the application.

Plan a relaxing month long trip or go for a quick week’s break, or better still visit twice and thrice if you can’t get enough of the place. Ideally your visa should take five working days to process. As long as you stick to the rules, there is no reason why you would be denied your Dubai visa.

This abroad trip, like any other, won’t burn a hole in your pocket. A vacation is supposed to be soothing and fun and that isn’t possible if the expenditure exceeds your budget. In such a case, it just becomes a straining trip that leaves you meddling with your finances to make ends meet. But not Dubai. The largest city of UAE is as extravagant as it is modest.
