International Travel Deals
August 30th, 2010
Travel bargain hunters may feel smug when they knock a hundred bucks off of a domestic flight cross-country to go home for the holidays, but that feeling is amplified ten-fold when they find a bigger bargain on an international flight. We all know international airfare is expensive, and justifiably so.
But there are ways to get international travel deals that don’t involve marrying a pilot or stowing away in a jet’s wheel well (we can’t comment on the intelligence of the former, but we really don’t recommend the latter).
Sometimes finding international travel deals is as simple as planning your trip at a different time of year. Sometimes it may involve planning a trip to a different destination altogether – or at least routing your travels differently than you might ordinarily think would be easiest.
Here are some articles designed to help you find international travel deals, no matter where or when you want to go.
If you’ve been following along at Cheap Ticket Links, you may know many of the tips included in this article about how to find cheap airfare on an international flight – but some of the things that work on domestic flights don’t work on international flights. So be sure to read this article, too, for the full picture.
