Don’t be overly-choosey with your airline choice unless…

They aren’t providing things that you’d 100% expect or if they’re adding on extras that you wouldn’t consider right. Otherwise, they’re just getting you from A to B, some a little bit fancier than others but in the main, your bum/butt will be comfy regardless of your airline, unless you have piles (haemorrhoids), and if you do, I’ve no experience with this to help you out. You’re on the wrong page but listen, the seat might still be fine even if you do have piles. No one is going to really google “best airline to fly with if you’ve got piles”, are they? Maybe they do, but I don’t know if there are sites dedicated to flying with piles, there possibly are. I have sympathy with you if you have them though. From hearing before, these can help, Rectinol (OTC cream) and the use of a “ring cushion”. Who is naming these things? My God. I didn’t expect this airline choice segment to turn out like this, my fault because I probably shouldn’t have mentioned piles. I know nothing about them, nor am I a Doctor of Medicine so you’ll need to consult your own, sorry about this. Woah, glad that’s that one over. That was kinda stressful. Ok, onwards and upwards!ย 

Don’t always fly direct…

You can often save money by going from a different airport. There was this situation where I was going with a best buddy of mine a few years back. He was living in Wales and I was in Dublin. I’d found flights that were Dublin, London Gatwick, Las Vegas. Aer Lingus from Dublin to London Gatwick and Virgin Atlantic from London Gatwick to Las Vegas. Return flights, one connection going out and one coming back, same airport each time, London Gatwick. I’d gone that route before so I was happy to get that ticket and needed to see what Richie thought, what with him being in Wales. My idea in my head, was that he’d only need to get himself to London (being on the landmass of the UK) and take the Virgin Atlantic flight stright to Las Vegas, the same one as me and that he’d get it cheaper as he wouldn’t be doingย  Dublin – London or London – Dublin parts of the flight. That was then the plan. I’d meet Richie in Gatwick and we’d jump on the flight and next stop Las Vegas, but as with all stories like this, there’s a road bump. The road bump was, for Richie to get that flight, and then we’d be on the same flight, there and back, it was going to cost him ยฃ200 (UK pounds) more than my ticket and mine had extra journeys! Remember I was going from Dublin to London and then on the way back, it was London to Dublin. So Richie ended up buying the same tickets as me and got a Ryanair flight over from Cardiff to meet me in Dublin airport and we went from there. So, the moral of the story here is, look at any airports near you, even if it means getting a short flight there IF it’s worth it to you. That holiday, maybe the greatest so far (I think is fair comment), as lovely little Richie’s have resulted from that trip. What there is to be learnt from this also, is that often it’s cheaper to fly from another airport (even in a different country) than it is to fly from your own, EVEN if it’s got a part of the same journey from your local airport. Strange eh? Yet very true. Fingers crossed that this doesn’t lead to a massive influx of UK holidaymakers taking the cheaper flights from Ireland and putting the prices up on me!ย ย 

Early morning and late-night flights are cheaper…

That’s just the way things are.

Be flexible with your route as regards connecting flights…

If it takes an extra hour but saves you $40 or so on the flight, is it worth it to you? This will depend on your salary I suppose, but to many people, taking an extra hour getting to where they’re going an hour later, and to save $40, yeah that’s going to be cool. It’s always best though if that extra time is spent in the air, as when you’re on the ground in the airport, waiting on a connecting flight, there are going to be so many distractions waiting for your money. Food, drinks, and then there are the shops. Best to be waiting on flights in between for as little time possible in this regard, but of course, not with such a short connection as to put you in danger of missing your flight. I’m not that keen on a connection time of less than two hours or so, as often the first flight can be delayed, plus if this happens and you’re connecting in an airport like Heathrow in London, with at times up to three securities to go through, it’s really out of your control pretty much, and can be an anxious time wondering if you’ll make your flight, especially with the queues there.ย 

Fly during the week…

It’s cheaper than the weekend PLUS hotels are cheaper during the week in Las Vegas too, much cheaper!

Fly when others aren’t…

Late Autumn and Winter in Las Vegas are normally times that you’ll get very good flight deals to Las Vegas. They’re also times that you’ll get great hotel rates (except New Years Eve obviously, when you’ll be absolutely robbed). Also, I’ve often seen great prices for flights to and from Las Vegas in July and August but obviously you’ll need to be very wary of the heat at that time of the year.ย 

Search for your flights using SkyScanner.Net or Momondo…

These are flight search aggregator sites that will help you find the cheapest, quickest, best, and fastest flights. Prices can differ a little, and in either sites favour at times, so there’s no outright winner here for me although I’ll admit that I’m more familiar with SkyScanner so clearly I’ve been using that more often. The one that I’ve built in above, well those prices are very hard to beat. If you need a hand, drop me a note and I’ll help. If I find you a great deal, let me put an affiliate link on it if I can. It won’t change your flight prices but will possibly get me a few dollars for my time. It might, it might not, I’ll help you for free anyway.ย 

Search SkyScanner by “cheapest month”…

With this trick you get to see all the flight prices for each day of the month and you can look at as many months as you like. You simply go to the site, I’d choose from Dublin to Las Vegas, you pick your own city obviously. Then where it asks for the date, you simply choose “whole month” and then “cheapest month”. There you go, enjoy!ย  That’s definitely going to save you money ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย 

You should use the tracking facility in Skyscanner…

To get them to email you price increases/decreases for certain dates that you’d like to go. It’s quite exciting getting the emails with the rises and falls. Definitely a nice way to keep an eye on your flight dates without booking them straight away.

There’s an app called Hopper…ย 

(I had a cat with the same name. She had only three working legs, thus her name, well her name was origninally Hudson but we called her Ace and called Ace, Hudson, so Ace was then Hopper (you love me confusing you don’t you?) so depending on who you spoke to, there’d be confusion, but not if Hopper was mentioned (as she only had three working legs). There were three of them and their mum, they were all named after alcohol, but that’s nothing to do with flights, and yeah, alcohol, that explains a lot of things. Anyway, their names were Buzz, Ace, Rocky and Hudson. There you go now, cats, alcohol (don’t give cats booze, don’t) and flying for you. Here’s an important thing about cats though, NEVER EVER give them Aspirin. They will die from internal bleeding. Something my Grandfather didn’t know and we lost a beauty called Tom due to this. Anyway, back to “technology Hopper”. They’ll show you analysis and track your flight dates for you also. This is a handy one to look at.ย 

When you get the price that you’re happy with…

From whichever site it happens to be, always check the flight price against the site of the airline itself. If it’s not the same on the airline’s site, see if they’ll price match it for you as it’s more beneficial for you to book with the airline rather than a third party. Most of the time, and I’ve used third parties maybe half the time, and they’re fine, but ensure that you’re choosing brands that you know of (Expedia, ebookers, Orbitz, whichever), but if something goes wrong, it’s best if you’d booked directly with the airline, whether that’s online or by phone is up to you. If there’s a delay, a cancelation, or if you need to make a change to the booking (third parties often charge for this and some airlines do too), for any of these reasons, you’re best having booked directly. You’ll also be able to collect frequent flyer miles.

These prices (below) for flights and hotels, will be very difficult to beat BUT also as regards hotels, please check the same hotel on Trivago.com, and IF it’s cheaper on Trivago, follow the link before booking to ensure that the prices take resort fees and taxes into account as some solo sites aren’t entirely transparent with this, which is an absolute nuisance and an annoyance, and to be fair, I don’t think it’s proper practice. Anyway, you can contact me if you’ve any queries, and I might be able to do something with the hotel for you. Again, in the main, these prices are very hard to beat AND I believe that I’ll have more hotel booking sites (built into this) available for you very soon. 

My aggregated system here includes Agoda.com, Expedia.com, Hotels.com and Booking.com amongst many many other huge players, and many, including Booking.com will include “price-matching”, so you can’t go wrong and I won’t let you go wrong! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Now, get yourself to Vegas! What are you waiting for? ๐Ÿ™‚
