Finding Ways To Keep Up With Traveling

Handy Tips for Frequent Flyers

Travel is just one of the niches you’ll find so many tips written about, especially on the Internet. But are all of these tips worth reading? Maybe not. Some are as common sense as “pack light” or “keep a bottle of water in handy” and the like.

If you’re looking for solid tips that can offer solid benefits while you’re on the go, whether for business or pleasure, read the following:

1. Know how code shares work.

Before you book a flight on a partner airline for miles, know how their partnership works. That travel clock is always ticking, but you have to find time to review the details. Some partnerships will give you the same mileage or less. Yet others will count miles depending on how much money you paid for the ticket, and not on the distance flown.

2. Book flights separately one-way each instead of round-trip.

Flying two different airlines on two separate one-way tickets is sometimes less costly than if booking a single round-trip altogether, and you can even get more convenient departure and arrival times as you mix and match different flights. Apparently, your travel clock will be more flexible for you if you choose this option.

3. Take advantage of your airline’s app.

Most airlines have apps that you can use to check real-time updates on things like gate changes or delays. If you’re a traveler, you know that a tool like this can be incredibly helpful. Some of these apps even allow paperless boarding at most airports. And it can also make your travel clock easier to manage.

4. See what perks are offered by your credit cards.

You may not have discovered them, but you may already be entitled to some perks. Take note, however, that these privileges may differ, so you have to know your priorities, like when you have to decide between waiving your foreign transaction fees or earning more miles. But there will be times when you’ll have to decide fast – remember, travel clock is always ticking!

5. Get rid of those cookies.

Lastly, if you’ve heard about that thing called “dynamic pricing,” be aware that it will not reduce a flight’s price regardless of the number of times you refresh a window; in fact, it can even push the price up as the system is led to think that demand has just increased. Many people like to work around this by using incognito windows, but clearing your search history and cookies is always a safer alternative.

There are so many other tips out there that can give your frequent flier IQ a boost, but the above can be greatly useful. It can help you keep your travel clock up to date, which is very important to any traveler.
