Traveling with Low Cost Carriers

airplaneWe have to plan our trip before traveling, this is to ensure that we are going to have not only a pleasant trip but the most efficient trip that we could have. Today, we have so many low cost carriers/airlines with special offers almost all the time. Special offers always come with specific terms and conditions, and apply only for specific destinations and for specific dates. Those offers benefit most to those who are flexible on dates, because they can get the best price.

To get the lowest fare, it is highly recommended to book as earliest as possible and that is when the airlines launch the promotion. The lowest fare seats are always limited, so be hurry. By booking earlier, the chance to get the lowest rate on your traveling date is still high. Most of the lowest fare seats are available during weekdays (but not for the weekend). Low cost carrier doesn’t provide free meal during the travel; you can only bring limited baggage for the check-in baggage. They also set certain weight limit for hand luggage and hold baggage that is the baggage you bring on board. To avoid any excess baggage always bring with you luggage scales.

In some countries, you will arrive in the secondary airports, they usually smaller and are further away. You always need to pay more attention to your own baggage, particularly for the check-in baggage, always lock them! Today, there are many choices of lock, one worth to mention here is the tsa locks. One thing that can be mislead when purchasing low cost carrier is the fare, most promotion fares are before taxes (fuel fee, airport taxes and government taxes), so always check the full price, and this can be easily done at the website. Always plan your travel, and have a pleasant flight!
