Want cheap flights? Try these 7 easy tips

Going on vacation is pretty much everybody's dream, but the high cost of air tickets is one of the main reasons which hinder travellers from going on vacation.

Going to Europe? A return ticket from Singapore to London can easily set you back at least $1,000.

Factoring in the cost of accommodations, the trip might already eat into a huge part of your travel budget even before you reach your destination.

Although airfare sales may be frequent, the traveller has to be ready to fly as the travel period may be as soon as a month after the ticket purchase. Other times, the flight to the destination might be cheap but the return fare can be expensive.

Luckily, there are some tips to score cheaper flights as shared by Smarter Travel website.

According to Smarter Travel, the airport's busiest hours are in the afternoon and it is the time when most people want to fly.

If you are looking to get some savings on your fare - don't fly in the afternoon.

Wary of non-refundable flights? There is no need to be.

These flights are usually the least expensive as they come with steep penalties for changes or cancellation, said Smarter Travel.

The travel resource site reveals that such non-refundable fares are refundable, without penalty, for 24 hours after you book it.

When you are looking to buy a flight, go ahead and book a great deal if you see one. You can always cancel it if you come across something better later - within 24 hours that is.
