  • If you think that there might be any chance of rescheduling/cancelling the tickets, it is best to do your flight booking directly on the airline's website, rather than through a third party website. You might face problems with the third party sites when you have to deal with such circumstances.
  • Searching for tickets using the incognito mode will get you the lowest, awesome prices! Depending on the cookies in your web browser, the flight prices change if a particular flight route is extensively browsed. This is a useful tip for your flight booking.
