I've written previously about ways to fly on a budget. However, there are plenty of strategies that I didn't share, so I thought Id release a sequel.

Here we go:

Looking at international flight aggregates
Sites like ZUJI and Webjet will generally allow you to find the best deal possible. However, if you're an NZ resident looking for lights on Webjet NZ, try having a look at the Australian site and see if there's a difference. Factors like exchange rate, availability and the time of your visit could all alter these so it's always worth having an extra look.

Speaking of:

Checking Again
After you book a flight, check again the next morning to see if the price of your airfare fell. If it did, give the airline a call to cancel your flight and often you can re-book without penalty. This isn't always guaranteed but some airlines/aggregate sites will be receptive towards the idea.

Book in Advance
Airfares are generally cheaper the further you book in advance. This requires a bit more foresight and planning but your savings account will be all the better for it.

Flying on a Budget

Alternative Airports
If you live in a city/state with multiple airports have a look at flights at all the airports to see if you can latch onto a cheaper flight. You might have to travel a bit further before your flight, but the savings could be worth it. e.g. Arriving at Dunedin instead of Queenstown

Do you have a tip that I'm yet to talk about? Let me know in the comments.
