Airline travel can be expensive, especially when traveling a great distance such as international travel. This is why it is important to stay vigilant and wait until the best prices are made available. Booking an airline ticket used to require calling an airline or a travel agent to check the prices. With the onset of the Internet, this step is no longer necessary.
Log onto the Web browser and navigate to Bing.com. Bing provides specific airline ticket price checks not available on any other search engine or online booking agent.
Click the "Travel" tab on the left hand side of the screen. Type in the desired departure and arrival city, whether its a round trip and the travel dates. Below, check all the boxes in the "Compare Search." This will compare the cheapest flights available on Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, Booking Buddy and AA Travel. Click "Search Flights" and in a moment the cheapest flight from all the online booking agents will be displayed.
Look through the prices until you find the least expensive. Take note of the flight information and the airline carrier that provides it.
Go to the Web site for the airline that provides the least expensive flight. Type in the exact same information into the flight search. Wait for the results to come in. In a few moments you will see whether it will be a better deal to go directly through the airline company or by booking through the online agency with the lowest posted price.
Navigate to the site with the least expensive option or choose the airline site option. Click to purchase your airline tickets online.
