2. Fly into low-cost airports
One of the oldest tricks in the book to save money when booking flights is to fly into an alternative airport.
Don’t rule out the possibility of landing in slightly further away from the city center because even with the added cost of the train or bus, it might work out a lot cheaper than flying into major airports.
Use the “nearby airport” option available on most booking sites such as Skyscanner and Expedia to see the fare difference to fly into various airports.
Most budget airlines offer low-cost flights to alternative airports such as Gatwick and Stansted with cheaper landing fees.
