How to Fly For Free - Getting the Cheapest Possible Airline Flights
(Page 2 of 2)
Companion flights There are certain schemes usually associated with credit cards which will get you 'free' companion flights. These can be reasonable value for money but remember you always have to buy the first ticket at full fare.
They are useful if you are traveling for work and are able to bring a partner or colleague along for free.
Courier Flights These are flights where you act as a courier by carrying time sensitive documents or parcels which can clear customs quickly at the destination. You usually have to pay for your ticket and you get up to 30-70% off the regular fare. Courier flights are becoming less common these days with only a few companies offering them. And free courier flights are very rare indeed - these would only occur if the courier firm was stuck at very short notice.
In summary, apart from the 'no checked baggage' Ryanair flights you cannot really find free flights. Even if you work for an airline, any free flights you might get would just be another form of compensation.
However there are some exceptional deals and techniques out there which can keep down the cost of flying. By applying sound airfare strategies over the long run, you will save more and more money over time. These savings can help subsidize your future travel costs.
