There’s no denying that the world is smaller these days, thanks to airlines heading to every corner of the globe. This is great news for those of us who love to travel, those of us who want to see different countries, experience different cultures, and have those experiences we will remember for the rest of our lives. Travel is basically a right, not a luxury, so it’s great news that finding a cheap airfare has become easier over the last few years.
Despite that fact, finding a bargain isn’t the easiest of things if you don’t know what you’re looking for. In order to be able to travel further, we have to cut costs, and this is where websites such as House of Travel NZ come in very handy indeed, taking the stress out of the whole thing.
Being able to search different airlines and mix and match combinations for return and one way tickets, increases your chances massively of grabbing a deal, and that can only be great news for you and your bank balance.
For instance, if you’ve ever dreamed of visiting the vibrant English capital of London, experiencing the pomp and ceremony of the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, or the vibrant shopping on Oxford Street, then you will probably have despaired in the past at the cost of return flights. Nowadays it is possible to find a deal if you look hard enough, and sites such as these will take the work out of it for you; return tickets from Wellington start from around $1755, which is certainly a bargain.
Alternatively, mainland Europe holds a myriad of sights and experiences, and you can travel around to your heart’s content, crossing borders and having yourself a real European adventure, tailor-made to your preferences. Again, the cost of flights in the past has always been high, but you can mix and match yourself a bargain if you’re clever about it – prices these days start from around $1899 return to Madrid from Auckland if you want to experience a little Spanish flair, or around $1689 to Frankfurt from Auckland too, for true history in and around the huge landmass that is Germany.
There are other ways you can cut costs too, perhaps travelling with hand luggage only if you’re willing to be very ruthless with what you take, maybe buying your toiletries at the airport to get around the liquid restriction rule. You could also look at flying indirect, and if it doesn’t add too much time onto your journey then why not save a little cash by going around the houses slightly?
At the end of the day, travelling further and more often comes down to being a little savvy and a little extra clever. Flight trawling websites will certainly give you a serious leg up when it comes to finding deals, and that’s great news for anyone who wants to get out there and see everything this wonderful world has to offer.
