Things that you need before you buy flight ticket.
1.Credit Card. You need a credit card to perform transaction. If you don’t have any, buy debit card instead.
2.The internet. Even if you want to buy ticket at the Air Asia counter, they insist you to purchase online. You really need the internet connection and you have familiar with the purchasing transaction. For the first time buyer, you can read the guidelines to buy flight ticket online.
3.Vacation plan and checklist. Be sure that you already well planned your trip to avoid unwanted things happen during vacation. It’s better to plan a vacation on a budget. Make the checklist of travelling to make sure you’re not leaving your favourite trousers or t-shirt.
Tips on buying cheap Air Asia ticket
1. Purchase 3 months early from your travel date.
After I’ve done several clicks on Air Asia website, I guess that to get a cheap price, you have to set a permanent date and buy it 3-5 months earlier. You will not enjoy the benefit of low price if you buy ticket for three days or one week earlier.
2. Look for weekdays schedule to get cheap ticket.
They only offer you cheap ticket for Monday to Friday flights. I rarely find cheap ticket on Saturday or Sunday. Lets call it luck if you find it low on weekend.
3. Avoid unneeded charges before you purchase.
Be careful when you enter the transaction process, there are some extra charges that you can avoid like express boarding and unnecessary insurance. Just unchecked the boxes before you hit the purchase button.
4.Be careful and enjoy your holiday.
1. Don’t buy any food or any merchandise on flight, they charge you triple than usual price.
2. Don’t keep any valuable items in luggage bag, I’d lost a handphone from previous flight.
3. Air Asia practices free-seat for any flight, you have to be quick to select your favorite spot.
Air Asia is the second company that offers international and domestic flight service in Malaysia. The company is well known with unbelievable low price of ticket (I don’t really know how they managed to get profit, but Air Asia net income reached almost double this year.)
I regularly buy tickets from KLIA to Kelantan. It only costs me 35 ringgit per ticket to fly my wife’s kampong and I purchase it 4 month before the date of flight.
