Taking advantage of the flight sales during Boxing Day can you make you feel like you’ve received more value for money, so here are some tips to help you get the flight you want.

- Compare deals and holidays to make sure you’re getting the best deal. Using sites like the ones mentioned above this page can help you see what the airlines are offering and allows you to see how much of a discount you’re really getting.
- Know when the sales start and finish so you can get the best offers. We all know that sales work on a ‘first come first service’ basis, so make sure you’re on your computer when the sale starts so you can get the best offers.
- Cut back on your intended luggage where you can. This is particularly important if you’re flying on a budget carrier, as luggage is one of the biggest problems that they have. Most budget carriers charge an extra fee if you want to check in your bags.
