Look (UK) - - HEY BUSY GIRL! -

1 Tim­ing is Ev­ery­thing Tues­day to Thurs­day are the best days to fly, so bear that in mind for your last-minute deals. it will also be much easier to scoop a bar­gain in off-peak months: may, June and Oc­to­ber.

2 GET SO­CIAL ‘I’d rec­om­mend join­ing our Fly­ing Club pro­gramme and you’ll be sent the best of­fers, but also fol­low us on Face­book and Twit­ter as our sale fares are al­ways posted to these as soon as they’re re­leased,’ a spokesper­son from Vir­gin At­lantic tells us.

3 LO­CA­TION, LO­CA­TION, LO­CA­TION if you’re flex­i­ble, you’re bound to get a cheaper deal. Try us­ing sites like tele­tex­thol­i­days.co.uk which has func­tions to search ‘any­where’ and al­low you to see which des­ti­na­tion’s cheap­est on the cheap­est date.

4 shop Around spe­cific Web­sites Find­ing a bar­gain get­away is of­ten time consuming, but shop­ping around is es­sen­tial. Sites are good, but apps are also amaz­ing for fig­ur­ing out the best ‘ASAP’ deals.

5 use THE phone Al­ways check for on­line dis­counts with spe­cific tour op­er­a­tors, but once you’ve found the cheap­est dates try book­ing over the phone to ne­go­ti­ate a price. happy hag­gling!
