When it comes to travelling abroad, travellers are always on the lookout for ways to keep their costs down. Alongside accommodation, flight prices tend to take up the bulk of the budget. There are ways to find cheap flights, with many websites and comparison sites offering trips to the same destinations at varying prices. By following this simple trick, flyers could cut down their flight prices. What is it?
According to thriftynomads.com, the best way to get a cheap flight to any destination is to keep travel searches incognito.
While this might sound like a wild idea, it’s not unusual for a flight price to change after it has been searched for a few times in a web browser.
Based on the cookies in the browser, flight prices can increase when a particular route is repeatedly searched, as the site wants to scare buyers into booking the flight quickly before prices get even higher.
To search for flights privately, flyers should enable incognito mode on their browser.
This is done in various ways depending on the browser.
In Google Chrome or Safari, incognito is enabled by hitting Command (or “Control” if using PC), Shift, “N”.
For Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer, hit Command (or “Control” if using a PC), Shift, “P”.
This will open a new browser window where your information is not tracked, thus not inflating prices as you search.
For those using an older version of OS X, open Safari then click “Safari” in the menu bar, and select “Private Browsing”.
As cookies are reset each time an incognito window is opened, flyers may want to close all incognito windows and open a new one to start with a clean slate for each flight search.
This should help to avoid any increase in price, which is triggered when the searches are “remembered.”
Cruise holidays are growing in popularity, but getting a good deal is of utmost importance to travellers.
The best cruise cabin for holidays has been revealed by recent reports.
The best cabins, according to Jules Verne River and Coastal Cruises, are on its river route travelling in Myanmar, in Burma.
Main deck cabins, which are priced as standard, have twin and double cabins and the standard impressed customers in 2018 and early 2019 so much, they rated it the top cruise for cabin quality overall.
Certain deals on food and drink are available on board, sold in packages.
However, it may not always be in the best interest of passengers to purchase these.
