daunting simple task of finding a flight! We have a few suggestions for getting a great price (and least amount of hassle) for your upcoming trip to sunny Costa Rica.
Getting a pro to deal with your travel itinerary is by far the easiest method. Many people have the misconception that this can be very expensive, but in reality your time is very valuable and getting a professional travel agent can save you money by accessing flights that aren’t available to the general public. Many of our guests have great things to say about their travel agents and use them year after year.
This is a very cool site designed by Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit.com. It not only lets you sort flights based on price but also by “agony”. We all have had a layover we wish didn’t exist, Hipmunk lets you filter those ones out and get the flight that’s right for you.
Kayak has a great looking mobile app for people who want to boo flights while on the go. It also lets you add nearby airports on either end to try and make sure you’re getting the best deal and travel time possible.
Airlines have seats to sell and once the airplane leaves, those seats are useless. It’s in your best interest to keep an eye out for any deals that airlines are offering and take advantage of them before your next vacation. This method does take some patience but paying attention to all the local and regional airlines in your region can turn up some great deals.
