Hello Forum members,

Although I found similar discussions but I want to be more focused and perhaps help by another me.

I'd love to hear from the experience of others in planning flights to tours abroad:

1. which is better, that takes care of everything or a purchase in one of the many flights after comparisons and more hours on the computer?

2. should the long-term planning with one online booking sites (expedia, kayak, skyscanner, etc)? Are they reliable enough?

3. how far in advance should I book (mainly for sightseeing)?

4. tour includes several objectives over time are recommended to plan and book ב"מכה". Or suppose the trip destinations can do order character?

5. I understand that this hour has elapsed from the world but are there alternatives and at times a little shorter (six months) if I don't want to set a date to return and be a little more flexible?

6. the "penalty" of cancellation/postponement of a permanent card? Is this a common method to maintain flexibility?

I'd like to thank you in advance '.

Look, your questions are very general, there are a thousand and one variants that only you can give an answer or decide for them, for example:

What are the objectives, what time of year, how long, how to change dates, how prices are flexible,

How much are you willing to make changes to the original plan (in other words: how spontaneous) etc.

So in my opinion there is no escape but to repeat what I wrote in the section 1 and prepare yourself for a long time in front of the computer.

Maybe others can help you more than I did.

Good luck!

I know I sound very generic and a little inexperienced and unfocused (it isn't) but tried to open discussion on the subject didn't find him many answers yet I would love if anyone would treat his specific experience, I (and I believe others) know to cut it help details

There are many variables, true, and only I can answer some questions, Yes, but if I list here my plan to enter details, Miss what I was looking for and that's the experience of others and diversity.

The answers don't have to treat each one of my questions, even if there is something good.

I think the questions are total people can answer in General.

Bottom line is I don't find answers inconclusive and conclusive, also near is good or just a story about a good deal (or at leastgood)

Identify with every word of stardust, but asked the General experience so try.

1. better reasons to order only, in most cases it is cheaper.

2. skyscanner, kayak-two friends and my experience (each 3 flights) are reputable.

3 + 4 big cheaper to order in advance (for example 6 months in advance), but there are also cases that the price suddenly drops a few days before the flight, so there is no definite answer.

5 + 6 agents offer all kinds of options for integrated card and not always taking a fee, plus about changing a date or destination (in that country). If a fee is between $ 100-250 mo (ballpark).

Anyway, note that they indicate. Happened to me once that "forgot" that agent deserve first change.

Specify that agents offer combined tickets. In the case of a purchase (established sites rather than through an agent) the rejection/cancellation fee also excellent purchase details?

Yes, the site of each company has what is known as policy cancellation or reissue in case of changing the target or date.
Don't cancel or change the date online but from the little I understand it goes by the number of days left for a flight that is the closer you are to the flight time you pay more Commission on or off.

Is there anyone who knows about this issue a lot more than I do, Google Flyingout.

I ordered a ticket for summer, I recommend to do it alone. For example, if you're flexible, you can save tens of dollars in moving a few days back and forth (with different dates at different prices.)
I asked many times from Skyscanner and had problems. Anyway this site only find flights, the reservation you make on the website of the airline.
Note that many times cheap flights both lowcost airline, which means additional costs (and higher) in a suitcase, and sometimes it is not possible to change or cancel a flight, so you need to read the fine print before ordering.

I'm flying to Central Asia and made a few inquiries that you may have.

1. try these sites aren't always the cheapest way – because they benefit from some airlines and some not and should not be displayed for example combinations when I looked for my flight was the possibility of flying with Pegasus forth. This flight was about $ 50 cheaper on any other flight that was offered with the shortest time konkshns

2. the ideal time to buy a ticket for 3-4 months before your flight or to exchange a day or two before the flight. Every other time (more than 4 month before or between 3-4 months and a day before) the prices more expensive. The reason is that six months before the flight Board not yet and it is unclear how many flights are going out. And the closer you get to this more expensive flight.

3. airlines allow ticket changes and such options you will see this when booking. Pegasus say they cannot move but dates can pay a few dollars to reserve the price obtaining (and at that time you are testing with all your friend they flow on the flight.)

4. each State has a different price. And I will give an example-Ben Gurion chose flight to Alma you Kazakhstan. I get price X if I go from Kazakhstan and invite her on the flight to Israel-Kazakhstan-price I get will be lower. In my case it was the difference of $ 35 towards (total 140 $ that I ordered two roundtrip tickets). To get the cheapest price has all kinds of mobile applications and websites that allow you to browse through someone's computer from another country. Try to go for poor countries

5. trick Pegasus made the credit card entered and was obliged in the week after. I called to ask what was happening, they said I was charged before sometime. I said fine. Later I found out they charged me when conversion rate was the highest paid out another 100 and something easy to fly. Then click on them to charge you bastards.

6. None of the agents spoke with them (even those who know relatives etc.) failed to give a price close to the price where I ordered at the end of

7. If you're planning on flights in the USA then say you want to fly from X to Y then you can catch a direct flight, Visa will cost you money, but sometimes it is possible to catch a flight from X to Z (a completely different destination) makes concussion on Y then you just get a concussion and continues flight and sometimes it can get cheaper. You exploit that targets in the U.S. the flight to which destination cheaper you fly because demand

That's all what I experienced on my flesh. If this is interesting so I ordered a flight to Kyrgyzstan for July-August in the $ 410 round-trip ticket with a bag of 20 kg (standard)

About-any agents in the country failed to approach the price paid in gaps of $ 100.

Good luck!

There is an advantage to an agent is doing for you what you don't want to do and is also supposed to be there for you when you need changes or when things go wrong.
I stopped using agents many years ago because it's my profession has no more justification. Agent (usually) to the price a person just get online.
It seems to me that user today is a little insecure in flight bookings online or some tchnopov (or both). But the marketing direction that the world moves forward.
I'm not sure what is faster today, travel agencies or music shops that sell the CD. Both no more justification.

Thanks for the responses.

In order to give another angle to the discussion says on one hand I agree with Amnon and haiku but I do think test case-by-case basis. And I specifications:

First look at the nature of the trip, whether it's a short ב"גיחה" (even up to a month and sometimes more), your destination clearly and uniformly (lands and took back the same destination) and the design is quite uneven (as any Trek in 2000), which is more suspicious tea of Tilapia. Here there is no doubt that agent really everywhere and always, with some confidence, find better price alone, which also has the agent a Commission agent himself pays a brief "not ב"גיחה.

But, if a little longer trip, what we know after army "כ"טיול der of younger guys, here in liico, I think I smell a here to test using the flight or flights to the base, where I land and where I go back (maybe with another goal in the middle) and all internal flights during the trip to do independently. The reason is mostly silent on such an excursion could give (such as fictitious card port to enter certain State) and all kinds of things you always think of them only. In addition, the Commission is not that significant and long flights.

True, in most cases give you the prices the private person is found alone in the Internet and if you don't have an agent you trust, there's no reason to go with each. But one good and allow another to use certain situations and it is important that credit.
