Cheap Airfare and How to Find it

by Joe 9. January 2009 11:07

Many of us rely on the Internet and Search Engines when we are looking for cheap airfare. We go to Google.com or some other search engine and search keywords like "cheap airfare" or "cheap air tickets" and visit the sites listed in the search results. However, there is a problem with looking for cheap airfare through cheap airfare keywords in search engines. The problem being that just because these sites are listed in these search engine results doesn't mean the fares will be cheap.

Sites where placed in these search results through marketing efforts. The only way to ensure cheap airfare is to search the actual sites and do some comparison shopping. Studies show that 17% of users who shop airfare buy from the first site they find and 63% of users shop travel sites that have a recognizable brand name. The problem with that is just because you book airfare from a site that is very popular doesn't mean the fare would be cheap. Chances are the fares will be very high on sites that are most regonizable since the marketing budgets of these well known sites are vast. These marketing budgets are what helps make the world know these brand names.

To find cheap airfare you have to do some homework. I am not saying that airfare on the most popular booking sites are not cheap at times. However, finding the best airfare prices will call for comparison shopping and research. Searching multiple websites for airfare pricing would possibly save you a few hundred dollars if you are user who rather book with the first site you find or a name you heard of on a T.V. commercial. If you search airfare with sites like Travelocity or Expedia, include an air consolidator into you research to see if you can save some money. An Airfare consolidator is broker who who has exclusive contracts with the airline and resells airfare that they receive from that airline. These contacts allow the air consolidator to get airfare at a discounted price and allow the air condolidator to sell that airfare for a discount.

Fare Buzz is an air consolidator. The next time you are searching for airfare prices add Fare Buzz to you research. By doing so you just added another way to save money on your travel.

Travel Advice

Dreaming of a Luxury Vacation?

by Joe 7. January 2009 10:48

Many of us who travel have that dream vacation we want to take. We may say to ourselves, "One day I will take that romantic European getaway" or "I have to see the Sphinx before I die". However, with the economy in the shape that it is in, we tell ourselves that our dream vacation will not happen for us anytime soon.

On the contrary, now is the best time to take that dream vacation. IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT! Airlines are having trouble filling those First Class cabins and are offering unbelievable discounts on those fares. Hotels are not even coming close to filling capacity so getting a good hotel deal in that swanky hotel isn't too hard to achieve either.

But don't just take my word for it. Contact one of our Agents and get a free quote on First Class airfare to Rome or some other location you are dreaming about visiting. You will see a huge reduction in fare price. You can also request a free First Class quote at www.farebuzz.com/business.

Corporate Travel Management

by Joe 6. January 2009 10:15

Many companies rely heavily on travel in order to conduct business. There may be sales people who need to travel to present some product or service. There may also be employee training that can not be conducted in house so these employees need to travel to some location for their training. Whatever the case may be, companies find themselves in need of airfare, hotels and car rentals.

Most companies utilize inhouse employees to manage the companies travel needs or the employee who will be traveling prepares their travel need themselves. If your company does a significant amount of travel and manages their travel needs in this manner your company could be over spending on travel.

Most travelers are savvy in terms of travel may not be savvy enough to get the best pricing on travel services. Working with a firm like Fare Buzz allows companies to have someone they can rely on the help get travel at prices much lower than purchasing travel themselves. Since Fare Buzz books a significant amount of travel we are able to get prices that companies may not be able to get since the company is most likely going to pay retail prices for their travel needs.

Outsourcing your Corporate Travel Management will not only generate a cost savings but it would allow companies to have a resource to work directly with airlines to get those employees who seek travel that seat on the plane at the time they need or that suite in their favorite hotel.
