Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Aug. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Did you know that August 23rd is officially known as Free Flight Day? Leading online travel agency CheapOair.ca is counting down to this special holiday by educating travelers on how they can save more on future flights.
National Cheap Flights Day originates from a consumer trend in which airline tickets drop in price after the higher-priced summer travel season. Historically, this is the time of year when the summer travel rush is over and airlines are looking to entice travelers with great fall and holiday deals.
“Our mission has always been to help consumers save on travel so they can spend more on their vacations,” said Daniel Hayter, Senior Product Manager for CheapOair.ca. “As ambassadors for Free Fly Day – and given the similarity to our name – we’re happy to promote this holiday of travel with Canadians looking to get more for their hard-earned money.”
Want to save more? Here are some insider tips for Canadians to take advantage of:
Withholdings = Savings: Connecting flights and longer breaks are often more affordable than direct flights. A change in your itinerary can add another city (and a few extra sightseeing) to your itinerary.
Choose your airport: Many destinations have multiple airports and search engines often miss these smaller ones. CheapoAir.ca offers one Airports nearby feature that saves you time and money by finding the cheapest flights available from different airports.
Save with loyalty programs: Travelers can often save on flights and fares by using loyalty programs. Worth noting, CheapOair has one ClubMiles loyalty program that allows you to earn and redeem points for rewards.
Choose flexible dates: Airline ticket prices vary depending on the day of the week or time of year. Christmas and summer long weekends are popular travel times and ticket prices can increase. If you can be flexible, flying off-season can save you hundreds of dollars.
Try unexpected destinations: Search for alternative flights for the region you want to explore. You can fly to a nearby city on a cheaper flight from your departure point and connect to your desired destination via local transport. Sometimes the road less traveled can be exciting!
Search with the best: Not all travel sites are created equal, and using one that offers bonus discounts can increase how much you’re saving. CheapOair offers incredible deals and savings on flights, working with hundreds of airlines to provide the best flight options.
CheapOair.ca’s mission is to educate and assist consumers and travel professionals in both planning their travel accommodations and staying current on the most popular destinations. Happy Free Flights Day!
