Today’s post is about travel! I always love writing about this topic and end up procrastinating. Finally, I made one! Here’s the question, have you ever dreamed of travelling abroad? I think I know the answer. And probably, what you want to say next. I don’t have budget. Yes, every one of us says it. Budget is a big deal. Plane ticket can empty your wallet! 

Worry no more, airlines nowadays have seat sale to accommodate budget travellers, including me. I have booked two seat sales this year and I did not regret. You too can do it, just have the guts and internet connection to get the deal you wanted. You don’t want to end up envious with your pal showing their best photos on the last weekend getaway. You too can have it, book early, be watchful, seat sale is on the way.

Here is what you need to know during seat sale. (This is based on My Own Experience)

First: Airlines

The first step is to know what airlines company you want to be your air carrier. If you have decided already, it would be easier for you to start your ticket searching. Sign up for the airline website and you will receive exclusive notification for seat sales. I have signed up for Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific. I was able to tract the sales by that. Because of my registration, I knew that the plane bound for Singapore has seat sales. And I never regret that they flooded my email notifications.

Second: Remove Excess

When you book your ticket online, you have the luxuries to remove and add. You can add pre order meals to your incoming flight, assigned seat and excess baggage. You can also remove insurance to lessen your total expenses. It is up to your choice. When I travel, I make sure to add excess baggage for my return ticket due to the “pasalubong” I will bring. Its better sure than pay over the counter. I have tried paying over the counter and encountered long line.

Third: Cash or Credit?

I have tried online booking with Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines. I did not experience hassle except with internet (I will discuss that next chapter). But take note that upon pay out in your booking, the two companies have difference. Cebu Pacific lets you pay with bank or Cebuana Lhuillier the next day, after you pay, you will receive an official receipt together with your itinerary on the email you provided when you booked. But with Philippine Airlines, correct me if I’m wrong you can pay only via credit card or debit card. When I booked and proceed to payout I was asked directly if I will pay via credit or debit which made me assume you cannot booked without having the two cards.

Fourth: Solid Internet Connection

Hah, this one is really important in availing a seat sale. A lot of travellers are just waiting around the corner for seat sale to happen, so you need to be ready when that time comes. I totally can relate to this, having a solid internet connection is really essential in booking. When I booked my flight to Singapore last September, I was really annoyed every time the “connection was reset” would pop-up the screen. Who wouldn’t? You’re very excited on the next step and suddenly it would ruin your hopes? So make sure to have steady internet connection, it would lessen your booking time and give you more chances in getting that next trip you really wanted. Remember, many are on the loop to deprive you of that seat.

There you go! I’m at the end of this long overdue post. I hope this would be the beginning of being active again after months of snoring on my bed. I will be launching a giveaway anytime this month! Hope you will join! I hope that this post have given you idea on what would you do during seat sales. Feel free to comment if you have additional points to add. Advance Merry Christmas! And thank you very much for reading my blog! Until my next post!
