Flying can be one of the most expensive parts of traveling. Depending on where you’re going, a flight could run you anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars. And that doesn’t even include the cost of getting to and from the airport or checking luggage.
But while flying can be expensive, it doesn’t have to be if you know the right strategies. That’s why in this article we’re going to look at how you can get the cheapest flights every time you travel.
We just launched our new app, Jetto, which sends the world’s cheapest flight deals directly to your phone.
In today’s episode, learn just how long the app took to make (hint: a long time), where Trav first met Jetto’s developer (hint: there was champagne involved), and how you can win a free flight to Dublin.
If you know anyone who did a lot of travel in the ’70s, ’80s, and 90’s you’ve probably heard of being an airline courier.
Essentially, you used to be able to give up your luggage space on a plane to carry packages for delivery and you could fly for free. It was a pretty neat system.
But with the tragedy of 9/11, this method of travel seemingly faded into obscurity. To the point where many people now don’t know it was ever a thing!
Now, with the sharing economy (AirBnB, Uber, etc.) growing across the globe, being an airline courier is making a resurgence and Airmule is part of the movement.
Airmule currently functions on flights between the United States and China, where you can give up your luggage space for discounted fares or a flat fee to deliver a package, and it’s totally legit. Jared, their marketing manager, and first employee joins me today on the podcast to talk about how exactly Airmule works, and how they got started!
Flight prices vary dramatically, sometimes every hour. And it can leave you feeling like you if you just knew one extra thing or looked one other place, you might have been able to save yourself hundreds of dollars.
So what if you knew how to get the cheapest flights every single time?
What if you had a process that was simple yet thorough, making sure you looked everywhere but also didn’t take up a lot of time?
Now, you can!
In today’s episode, Jason and I break down our 10 general rules for getting cheap flights – from what days of the week are the cheapest to how to “trick the computer” – and then reveal our eight-step process we use to ensure that we get the best flights.
Learn this, use this, and never pay full price again.
