How to Compare International Airline Ticket Prices
updated: September 3, 2010
If money is no object, you can easily buy an airline ticket by phoning a customer agent and booking a first-class seat to an international destination. However, if price is an issue, comparing airline prices can help you find the best fares.
- Travel websites like Expedia, Orbitz and Travelocity can display a range of flights and prices to and from international destinations. You can easily sort by price or destination to find the best options. In addition, these sites also allow booking of hotels and rental cards. Buying all your travel options as a package can save you money and time over individual purchases.
- Browsing the websites of individual international airlines such as Northwest, Singapore or Virgin Atlantic may be time consuming but may yield better prices because many airlines offer the best fares on their own sites. You can also sign up for frequent flyer programs and email alerts that grant discounts or free tickets.
- Though travel agents charge fees for their services, they may be the only option for complicated routes. In addition, many buy blocks of seats at wholesale prices that they can then sell at discounts to their customers. If you cannot find a qualified agent near you, try the American Society of Travel Agents website, which allows agent searches by zip code.
