Airline travel is becoming increasingly frustrating these days, but it doesn’t have to be! It turns out, there are plenty of ways to make the whole process easier if you know where to look.
TheDailyEight has a really cool article with some tips:
- Don’t be afraid to ask: “There is a good chance you can get a first class seat for cheap. If there is room in first class (which takes two things to happen: the seats not already being sold out and there not being many premium frequent fliers on your flight who qualify for an upgrade), then airlines will often sell tickets for seats at a discounted rate.”
- Call Customer Service: “In fact, calling your airline’s customer service number is often your best bet for most situations. If your flight gets cancelled or delayed, simply call this number and they’ll be able to get you on the next flight out, or help you out much more quickly than someone at the gate or ticket counter can.
- Sign up for alerts: “If you aren’t in a huge rush to book a flight or if you are casually thinking about going on vacation in the near future, sign up to receive email alerts from your preferred airlines. You’ll get instant notifications about flash sales and other promotions they are having, allowing you to snag the best deal without having the scour the internet a month before your trip.”
