You can find tons of information from step-by-step instructions on finding tickets, hotel booking, and choosing travel insurance to advice on packing luggage and selecting a wardrobe for an upcoming trip. We decided to get away from the obvious facts and introduce you little-known life hacks from experienced travelers.
Play on a decline
Do you know that the total cost of a ticket is affected by your location, purchase time, and even the type of device on which you order it? Therefore, try to buy a ticket at nighttime or early in the morning. Do not forget to switch to the incognito mode in your browser. The “smart” reservation systems not just conduct an analysis of the welfare of your country, but also determine the type and average cost of the device with which you make a reservation. Anonymity also allows deceiving it and playing on a decline.
Many passengers ignore the airline’s request to provide their contact details when booking tickets. In the case of a significant delay or flight cancellation, the airline (or travel agent) is responsible for informing passengers about such changes in the timetable.
Use web registration
Most airlines open a remote registration 2-3 days prior to departure. Some of them automatically register non-registered passengers themselves a day before departure and send boarding information to e-mail. But the trend is that more air carriers are following the way of the lowcosts and are starting to charge for registration at the airport.
Protect your personal information
Your boarding pass shows much more information than you think. In addition to the obvious name, departure and destination points, gate number and seat space, it gets a ticket number, a booking code, and sometimes even a loyalty card number and the number of luggage pieces. Armed with this information, craftsmen can get access to your account in a couple of clicks and not just look at your route and the last digits of the credit card number, but also make changes to your reservation, and even its cancellation.
Observe the order of flights
Never and under no circumstances violate the sequence of flight segments. Follow the route specified in your ticket. According to international rules, if a passenger fails to appear on any of the flights as part of a complex route, the entire ticket in both directions is canceled. So you will have to get a new ticket for a full cost.
So, replenish these travel hacks your piggy bank and make a trip even more pleasant, comfortable, and beneficial.
