Traveling by airplane is indeed should be planned in advance. Including buying the flights ticket to ensure the availability of seats and also the probability of getting the cheap prices. But there are also times when we have to travel unexpectedly, such as going for a business trip or emergency cases. Getting this ticket in such condition might be more difficult especially during peak season. Online booking service or Airline call center is normally close 4 hours prior to flights schedule. How to get the last minute flights? The following tips may help you to get one.
Looking For The Right Airline
Choose the airline that has the most appropriate flights schedule for your destination. It could increase the chance of you getting to fly with the next flights if there are no more ticket in the fastest time.
Come To The Ticketing Counter
Come immediately to the ticketing counter to enquire the availability of this ticket. If there are no more tickets at that time, the ticketing counter will put your name on a waiting list for the nearest flight tickets. If you need to go to emergency matters, tell the ticketing counter. Usually, the airline company will leave some seats for the emergency cases.
Stay At The Ticketing Counter
Usually, in some flights, there are passengers canceling the flights in the final moment. This cancellation is usually can be known after the check-in counter was closed. Make sure to bring cash money, because usually the airline only received payment in cash not in debit or credit card at the ticket counter at the airport.
Bring Only Important Things
To avoid difficulty, try to only carry the important things that could enter the cabin. Baggage service is usually close after check-in counter closed. You could directly go on the flights if you only bring a few things in the cabin.
It is different if you go in the low season time. The airlines who have the counters at the same terminal and have a route with adjacent schedules usually tend to sell the cheap flights tickets last minute just to increase the load factor aircraft.
