Money-saving travel ticket trick

If you’re purchasing plane tickets in bulk and attempting to get the cheapest possible deal, you should probably consider this new hack.

Have you ever seen an airline deal that says, ‘two seats left for $99’ and you think that by purchasing four tickets, you can get two of them at the lower price?

Well, you’re probably wrong and you can end up paying full price for all four of your tickets, leaving those two $99 tickets for someone else.

This is because the airline will recognise that there aren’t four cheaper tickets available and will therefore default and charge you full price when buying tickets in bulk.

While buying in bulk may vary from airline to airline, it is best to buy each ticket individually, running your credit card a few times rather than making one major purchase.

You could grab those two seats for $99 and put that extra cash into your actual holiday.
