Buy for one Passenger First
I figured this trick when we went to St.Louis last Summer.
I was looking for 2 round trip tickets to St.Louis.
My wife was searching in her Macbook and I was using my PC.
I selected 2 Adults for my search criteria. She was searching for 1 ticket.
Look what we found
- 1 Passenger – Round Trip Fare $250 (inc all taxes and fees)
- 2 Passengers – Round Trip Fare $600 (inc all taxes)
It should be $500 for 2 passengers for round trip, but why $100 was added.
Apparently, only one ticket was available for $250 and second ticket was $50 extra. Since, we are booking as 2 passenger, instead of $550, airline quoted $600.
Someone else booking single ticket would have got $250 fare.
So, we booked 2 separate tickets and saved $50.
Check baggage fees. These can significantly increase ticket prices
Round trip baggage fees can add $120 to your fare, if you check in the bags.
