Top Deals-Solo Travel Pricing Tracker. For all travelers, airline tickets are one of the biggest travel costs. Here are some tips to get better pricing: 1. Check out Hopper.com, a new Canadian company. It is one of the growing number of tech start-up’s that use “predictive analytics”. Their goal is to use complex software and algorithms to assist travelers in finding the best prices. If you give this a try, please send me your feedback as to how successful it was via email at the SoloTrekker4U.com Contacts tab. 2. Travel gurus have often tried to predict timing for best prices looking at available data rather than software analyses. I followed this advice once planning to book on Tuesday/Wednesday airfare to SE Asia roundtrip. The result? Overnight my chosen flight had increased by $400-$500. The bottom line? If you see the right route/price, don’t wait since it may be fully booked before you get there at any price. 3. If you rely on frequent flyer deals, read all the fine print. Besides possible blackout days, the number of “reward” seats on each flight is limited. In addition, even with miles, upgrades to Business Class may require an extra hefty payment. 4. If you arrive at the gate with a designated number on the waiting list for an upgrade, be aware that your priority may be quickly surpassed by more frequent flyers. 5. Certain popular ports of entry may be more expensive even when the flight is not longer. For example, flights to London and Paris can be costlier than those to Budapest. 6. Check out pricing on all the major online sites, such as Expedia and Priceline. Then see what your selected carrier is offering directly.
