Imagine water so clear that you can see every ripple in the crisp white sand that lays beneath it. Behind you rise majestic volcanoes and lush green trees, from which fly birds of every color imaginable. Sounds too good to be true, but you could experience all of this, and much more, on a trip to Indonesia. Far from being out of your budget, flights to Indonesia can be sourced easily and cheaply. Here are some tips to help you get the best deals and save money for your holiday experience.
It is tempting to have a very fixed idea of what your vacation will consist of. This idea usually includes aspects such as where you will go, how long for and what time of day you will depart. If you are able to be more flexible in your approach to these areas you can generally source better deals. This doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on quality. If you have your heart set on one particular island then you may need to be willing to travel slightly earlier or later than you planned to get the best deal. Similarly, if you cannot be flexible on dates then changing where you fly from, or to, or being willing to fly at unsocial times of the day will often save you money.
Travel at short notice
The best deals are often last minute, or are only available for a limited amount of time. Signing up for newsletters and email lists will give you the best chance of finding out about deals in time to be able to use them. So, if you want to enjoy the air trip with Lion Air, then sign up on its website. To be able to travel at short notice you need to ensure that you have all of your documents and inoculations up to date. Check these before you book any flights and keep up to date with any travel advice, particularly if you need to book connecting flights or other transport to get to your Indonesian flight.
The cost of a flight is always about more than just the price of your seat. You have to take into account additional costs, such as airport taxes and luggage allowances. To keep your flight as cheap as possible consider at least some of the following:
- Read the small print and check exactly what is included in the price you see when making your booking
- Check the weight of your bags, additional weight can really increase the cost of your flight
- Ideally travel with just hand luggage
- Is in-flight food and drink complimentary?
- Are connecting flights and transfers included? Do you need to organize these separately?
Traveling by air is a great way to see and experience different countries and cultures. No journey is complete without a visit to Indonesia and just a few easy steps can make this dream a reality even on the smallest of budgets.
