Use Bravoavia to search for your flight
In order to really save with low-cost flights, our first piece of advice is…instead of searching on the website of every low-cost airline, use Bravoavia to search for your flight. This way, you are assured of finding the airline company that answers all your needs at the lowest cost.
Subscribe to the Bravoavia newsletter: you will receive information about the most valuable flights currently available. As well, you will receive special promotions from airline companies that offer you remarkable deals. You are guaranteed to receive the best deals of the day in your inbox.
Reserve your flight as soon as possible
If you really want to find the best offers, don't hesitate to book your plane ticket: book as soon as possible or at least one month before your departure date.
Do not hesitate to book
If you find a good offer, don't wait to find a better one; book now! The available places disappear fast and, as the travel date approaches, the prices increase. So book early in order to guarantee you obtain the best prices.
Stay overnight on Saturday and save
For international flights, we suggest you stay Saturday night at your destination; in fact, airline companies consider a trip that does not include Saturday night as a business trip, therefore the flight is potentially more expensive than a flight with return on Sunday.
Fly at uncommon hours
You will find the best prices if you fly at unusual hours, such as Monday afternoon or Sunday morning. In fact, the price of plane tickets is dependant on supply and demand – therefore plane tickets for flights leaving at the most requested hours are inevitably more expensive.
Fly to secondary airports
Fly to and from the secondary airports of major cities, such as Girona for Barcelona or Luton for London ; thanks to subsidies for their commercial development, secondary airports have the capability of managing the air traffic of low-cost airline companies at very advantageous prices. In addition, secondary airports are well connected to neighbouring cities thanks to fast and efficient transport services.
Travel with only a carry-on bag
Avoid bringing luggage: if you are able to, travel with only a carry-on bag - checked luggage often carry important extra fees. And if your luggage is over the weight limits or dimensions established by the airline company, you risk paying a heavy fine. Before leaving, consult our table found in Information about airlines, which contains travel regulations established by each low-cost airline company:click here.
Do not change your reservation
When booking your flight, make sure that you enter each passengers' data correctly. Once the flight is booked, avoid making any modifications to the reservation: a fee is incurred every time you alter the date and/or the time of the flight, the itinerary, and the name of the passenger.
Please note that in the case you decide to cancel your flight, more often than not, low-cost airline companies do not give you your money back.
