4. VPNs

You must have never thought of that. Do you know if you are booking a flight from Indonesia to the USA by sitting in the USA then it may cost you more than booking the same flight sitting in Indonesia?

Okay, so here’s the trick. Open a VPN (Virtual Private Network) site, change your location to Indonesia and search the price now.

Amazed? Yes, the flight ticket price is cheaper. Give it a try while booking a flight ticket next time.

5. Book each ticket separately

When you are booking a flight ticket for 2 persons, you may see the price for an individual ticket to be higher than that of one person.

Try opening a new tab and then check the price by selecting the number of passengers as 1. The websites like Skyscanner will show you prices comparatively cheaper for a single person than those of two people.

So book each ticket separately.

6. Buy the ticket in person

When you have tried every online website and tool and still feel the tickets are over-priced then have a try to book it in person.

Visit the nearest flight terminal and bargain there, you most probably will get the flight at a much cheaper price than online booking. They basically won’t charge unnecessary convenience fee, carrier interface charge and save a few bucks.
