Why more and more tourists are traveling by airplanes?
Thanks to airlines, travelers can flights to very distant towns in three hours. Because of that, employers are taking longer weekends in their jobs, to see some popular metropolis. If there were no planes, voyage like that will last for half day! The only problem is to getting out from airport to the old town – sometimes it is really far away. But there are taxis, and still it is faster journey then by bus.
In past, we use to pack even three bags for our journey, packing a lot of wardrobe, sport stuff, even groceries. Now, if we want to take all of it to our plane, it will cost us a lot! In price of our seat, we only have one baggage (and how big it is, is up to rules of airline company) (see more). If we want to take extra luggage with us (which can contains groceries) we have to pay extra for it. Usually, if we buy registered baggage, it cost us twice! So when you are interested only in low-price flights, be clever during packing.
What take with me on plane?
If you are choosing just carry-on bag, you must to know few rules. Before your flight, be certain that size and weight of your luggage is admissible, to avoid additional costs. Furthermore, you couldn’t carry any liquids (bigger then 100ml), snacks, beverages and sharp objects. It you have some of that, it will be took by security. Beside your carry-on bag, you may also take a personal item with you – it could be a handbag, a rucksack or briefcase – not to big and also without forbidden objects.
How to find the best deal?
If you are planning a really cheap holiday, you have to know how to pick airline ticket smart.
You must avoid hot seasons – July, August or longer weekends. If you are planning to visit Rome, for instance, try to buy tickets for May, June or September flights – it can be even two times cheaper, but the temperature still could be good. Also there are fewer travelers, so you avoid crowd on the hotel (http://www.lot.com/airline-tickets/flights-to-vilnius).
Get your ticket six months or couple days before your tour – first and last minute offers usually are the cheapest. But sometimes first minute trips might be canceled, if it will be to few buyers. On the other hand, if you choose last minute, you need to be prepare that you might not find anything interesting, and you just go on holiday to some random place.
