Tips For Purchasing Airline Tickets
November 20, 2008 - Gas prices are falling, but airline tickets are pretty much staying the same.  To help find the best possible price during this holiday season. Individuals and small group tours need to keep some things in mind when purchasing their airline ticket.
  • Book directly: Airlines have begun giving discounts or vouchers to customers who book directly through their website.  It not only helps drive people to their website, but helps the airlines not have to pay that extra commission they would to priceline, orbitz, or expedia.
  • Sign up for their email: Many airlines offer special discounts to customers who sign up for their email and will sporadically send them out.
  • Look for flights at nearby airports: Depending on where you are flying to many times there are smaller airports who will have cheaper flights. So, if one of your baseball travel tours includes New York try flying into New Jersey.
  • Try to be flexible: Adjusting your travel days by a day or two may be able to save you in the long run.
  • Don't wait: If you find a deal don't wait to see if a better one more than often when you come back it will be gone.

However you decide to purchase your airline ticket make sure all of your baseball vacations get planned in plenty of time.
