Thanks to airlines, travelers might flights to really distant cities in couple hours. Because of that, people are taking longer weekends in their jobs, to see some famous metropolis. If there were no planes, trip like that will took half day! The only problem is to getting out from airfield to the old town – sometimes it is really far away. But there are taxis, and still it is shorter trip then by car.
In past, we use to take even three bags for our holiday, collecting many of clothes, sport stuff, even food. Now, if we want to get all of it to our airplane, it will cost us fortune! In price of our seat, we only have one baggage (and how big it is, is up to rules of airline corporation) (read more). If we need to take extra luggage with us (which may contains food) we have to pay extra for it. Usually, if we buy registered baggage, it cost us double! So if you are interested only in low-price flights, be wise during packing.
What take with me on board?
If you are choosing only carry-on baggage, you have to know couple rules. Before your flight, be sure that size and weight of your bag is permissible, to avoid extra costs. Also, you cannot handle any liquids (larger then 100ml), snacks, drinks and sharp objects. It you have some of that, it will be took by security. Beside your carry-on baggage, you can also have a personal item with you – it may be a purse, a rucksack or briefcase – not to large and also without forbidden objects.
How to find the best deal?
If you are arranging a very cheap holiday, you must to know how to pick flight ticket clever. You should avoid hot seasons – July, August or longer weekends. If you are planning to visit Rome, for example, try to get tickets for May, June or September flights – it should be even two times cheaper, but the weather still should be good. Plus there are less tourists, so you avoid crowd on the beach your ticket half year or couple days before your trip – first and last minute options usually are the cheapest. But every now and then first minute tours can be canceled, if it will be to few buyers. On the other hand, if you buy last minute, you have to be prepare that you may not find anything good, and you just go on holiday to some random place.
