Cheapflights.com.au travel expert Kara Segedin says consumers could be forgiven for wondering if they really have found the best fare.

“With so many good deals being advertised by airlines and travel agents at the moment, consumers might get confused about which is the best value.” said Kara.

“Cheapflights.com.au compares all of the major airlines and travel agencies and searches for the best fare for consumers.

“Basically we do all of the leg work and even work out the cheapest travel dates,” said Kara.

She said there’s no additional booking fees or charges when you book through Cheapflights.com.au.

“We are consumer advocates helping people save time when they research their holiday travel.”

Kara’s top tips for finding cheap plane tickets and saving money on your travel:

1.     Be flexible – alternate airports and flexible departure times can save you money.
2.     If using an alternate airport, consider the cost of transport to and from your hotel to the airport.
3.     Book early – generally, the earlier you book, the more you save on plane tickets.
4.     Compare airfares from different sources – Cheapflights offers a free service for this at www.cheapflights.com.au/flights.
5.     Watch out for taxes, surcharges, and fees.  All of the fares quoted on Cheapflights.com.au include these fees.
6.     Consider overall value – you might have found the cheapest flight but does it suit you in terms of stopovers, inflight service, baggage allowance and seating preference?
