Are you thinking about saving money on airfare by flying with budget airlines such as Allegiant, Frontier, or Spirit Airlines? Here are my tips to find cheap plane tickets and the best flight deals.
Recently, Wes (my husband) took a couple of last minute flights to visit family and we booked his flights on budget airlines. I had first started looking for flights like I normally do, with traditional airlines like American, Delta, and Southwest. But, everything was super expensive because we were booking last minute.
Then, I got the idea to look at some of the budget airlines, such as Allegiant, Frontier, and Spirit so that we could save some money.
I found a super affordable flight on Allegiant, AND it was direct. Whereas all of the expensive flights had multiple stops and would take all day.
My first thought was that something had to be wrong since the price was so low, so I asked around to see if these discount flights were the real deal.
I had numerous people tell me not to do it, but I had more people tell me that these cheap plane tickets were too good to pass up.
Well, I bought the Allegiant flights, and it went well. Then he flew again a few weeks later, and he used Allegiant again.
Despite my concerns, everything was fine! The flights all arrived on time, and we were able to save hundreds of dollars (not to mention he saved hours with each flight because they were all direct!).
And, you've probably seen this as well. You've probably searched for flights and have seen huge price differences. Allegiant, Frontier, and Spirit tend to offer super cheap pricing, like unbelievably cheap plane tickets. A ticket on a normal airline may be $200+ each way, and the low-cost airlines may only cost $40.
Examples of random flights I found through budget airlines:
- Austin, Texas to San Juan, Puerto Rico for $70 on Spirit Airlines.
- Fort Lauderdale to Cincinnati for $48 on Allegiant Airlines.
- Los Angeles to Las Vegas for $25 on Frontier Airlines.
So, what's the catch?
There's got to be a catch, right?
Well, there are things that you should know when it comes to flying a budget airline. Whether you travel full-time or if you're looking for an occasional flight, you probably are looking to save money on your flight!
