Air travel has never been so easy. Air travel is becoming more popular than ever with hundreds of full-service and low-cost airlines flying to remote locations around the globe.
A popular television commercial shows that people fly to their nearest city to shop or get their hair done. A plane trip used to be something only the elite could afford. More people are choosing to book their flights online than booking through a travel agent due to the availability of cheap internet fares and high-speed internet access in small cities. Online ticket bookings are available on many websites, including those for international and domestic airlines.
Online ticket booking offers many advantages over traditional paper tickets:
Less expensive airfares: Airlines offer very low airfares online and are eager to sell empty seats. These fares can be announced online by airlines or via email, which is cheaper than advertising them in the media. Online bookings offer the best deals and offers, which are not advertised on TV or in print media. Last-minute deals that are only available online could save you a lot of money and allow airlines to fill empty seats. Because they want to keep long-term booking commitments, airlines offer discounted airfares for seats booked months ahead. If you book at least a month ahead, you will often be able to get the exact same seat online for half the price.
A wider selection of flights: You can book your flight tickets online and get more options for specific sectors. It is possible to see if the airline offers full-service or low-cost services. It is possible to compare the aircraft type, flight time and whether the flight is non-stop. This will allow you to make an informed decision that is cost-effective and more efficient. Agents will often try to sell tickets on an airline that pays them more commissions. You can book your tickets online and choose the airline or aircraft you prefer.
Secure and Safe Bookings: With the introduction of SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer), online credit card transactions are now completely secure. When you request personal data such as your name, address, and credit card number, all online travel booking sites offer 128-bit SSL encryption. When you provide this information online, ensure that your website address has been changed from http://to http://. The extra’s’ signify that your connection to the booking site’s server is secure. Make sure you have a padlock icon at the bottom right of your browser. Any data sent via secure connections is encrypted and cannot be read except by the intended recipient. Even if someone hacks into your connection, they will only see garbage data. There are no chances that someone will steal your credit card information online. Online bookings for air tickets have become more popular than ever, with nearly every bank now offering credit cards to their customers. Everyday, more than 1 million tickets are booked online through websites such as Yatra.com or MakeMyTrip.com.
Select your seat and Web Check In: When you book your plane ticket online you will be able to see a map of your aircraft and select your seat online. You can choose your favourite aisle or window seat, or a seat that offers more legroom. Many online booking sites offer web check-in. You can travel with only cabin baggage and not any check-in baggage. You can also web-check-in up to 48 hours before your flight and print your boarding passes on your computer at home or work. You can simply walk up to security and board your flight. There’s no need to wait in long lines at the airport for check-in.
