6 STEP TO Save Money When You Fly

. Wednesday, April 30, 2008

with Chris Chmura

Are you in need of a vacation but don't want to spend a lot on getting there? With a little bit of flexibility and patience, you can find affordable airfare.

Consider Flying in Off-Peak Times

Flexibility is the key to an inexpensive getaway. If you say I'm going such and such a place and nowhere else on such and such a day, you limit your options.

Discounts can be found during off-peak times and seasons. For example, everyone wants to see Europe during spring or summer. But, if you choose autumn or winter, you'll cut your costs big time.

Try Flying Into Nearby Airports

Once you pick a city, consider flying into nearby airports. Instead of San Francisco, check prices for Oakland, San Jose, even Sacramento. Sometimes you can save a bundle arriving into one airport and leaving from another.

Be Flexible With Travel Dates

Research is essential to saving money. There are gobs of great online tools to help find you find the lowest fare. Some even send you alerts when prices drop between you favorite places.

Always direct these search engines to find fares for a few days before and after your date. A day earlier or later can save you hundreds.

Buy Direct From the Airline

Although these travel sites are great, they charge a service fee of at least $5 when it's time to book.

So, I do my research with them and buy direct from the airline, where there's no fee and I sometimes get bonus miles for booking with them online.

Don't even think about calling an airline to buy a ticket unless you absolutely have to. They all charge fees to talk with someone, in hopes you'll complete your purchase on the Internet.

Know When to Book Your Flight

The best time to book your tickets may be mid-week. Airlines usually announce fare sales around Wednesday or Thursday, and hike fares a bit on the weekend.

If you need to book at the last second, forget this - and snag the best price you can find ASAP.

You may want to sites that let you name your own price, but sometimes they're the same price as the airlines themselves.

Sign Up for E-mail Alerts

Speaking of last minute tickets, you can find impressive bargains when booking just before take-off. The airlines offer e-mail blasts once a week letting you know where you can go on the cheap.

As long as you don't get your heart set on a particular destination, you'll be on your way to frugal flying. And every penny you save getting there is one you can spend once you arrive.


The Fabulous Colosseum Of Italia

. Tuesday, April 29, 2008

The Colosseum - the greatest amphitheatre of the antiquity - was built in Rome, Italy, about 1920 years ago. It is considered an architectural and engineering wonder, and remains as a standing proof of both the grandeur and the cruelty of the Roman world.

After the splendour of imperial times, the Colosseum was abandoned, and in turn it became a fortress for the medieval clans of the city, a source of building materials, a picturesque scenery for painters, a place of Christian worship. Today it is a challenge for the archaeologists and a scenario for events and shows.

Wonderful!!! Machu Picchu

. Monday, April 28, 2008

Machu Picchu (Quechua: Machu Picchu, "Old mountain") is a pre-Columbian Inca site located 2,400 meters (7,875 ft) above sea level. It is situated on a mountain ridge above the Urubamba Valley in Peru, which is 80 km (50 mi) northwest of Cusco.

It was built around the year 1450, but abandoned a hundred years later, at the time of the Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire. Forgotten for centuries, the site was brought to worldwide attention in 1911 by Hiram Bingham, an American historian. Since then, Machu Picchu has become an important tourist attraction. It was declared a Peruvian Historical Sanctuary in 1981 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. It is also one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

"7-1" Tips for cheap Airfares


1: Make your reservation early.

Make a reservation as soon as you know your travel dates increases your chances of finding a great fare.

2: Flying on a weekday usually costs less.

Flights departing on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday usually offer the lowest fares. Fares are sometimes (but not always) higher on Monday and Friday than on other weekdays. Saturday flights occasionally have discount fares.

3: Stay over a Saturday night

Most low fares require that you stay over at least one Saturday night before your return flight. However, some fares may only require you to stay a minimum of 3 or 4 days.
