We've all heard stories of amazingly cheap flights, but how do we hunt down such a bargain in 2006?
Flight companies such as Ryanair and Easyjet advertise cheap flights regularly, and if you book early enough online you should be able to get a half price ticket. The only trouble with these companies is the no-frills service and anti-social flight times. I recently flew to Dublin from London Gatwick with Ryanair, and although I bought the ticket at a cheap price, the flight itself was pretty uncomfortable. Fortunately it was only a one-hour flight, had it been any longer it would have been unbearable. Not recommended for the elderly or anyone with disabilities.
Teletext is a great place to pick up a cheap flight. Every morning new flights are posted on the service. The only trouble is that the rotation of the pages on teletext is pretty slow, so if you miss the page that your destination is on, you may end up missing out on the deal completely.
Your local travel agent can sort you out a cheap flight. The travel agent buys flights in bulk so may be able to sort you out a cheap flight in a comfortable and reassuring atmosphere.
If you can't find yourself a cheap flight, don't despair. You can save money in other aspects of your holiday. Airparks provide cheap airport parking, airport hotels, airport lounges, and travel insurance. Our prices are the lowest around, so you can save money on everything else if your flight costs the normal price.
