Scoot Airlines highlights some important tricks so that you can enjoy comfortable travel on the same budget.
It is a common myth that one should choose Wednesday flights that are just after midnight, in order to get the best fares. While mid-week flights generally cost less than weekend flights, certain periods such as eve of public holiday might see a surge in pricing. Dynamic pricing can also cause fares to readjust according to time and booking demand. A trick to getting the best fare is to subscribe to the airline's price alerts. Once a good deal is available you will be notified, so make sure you book when your preferred price is available!
The early bird really does catch the worm – most airlines' flights are made available for booking up to two seasons in advance (that's 12 months ahead) and those who book their flights early usually catch the best prices.
Opt for airline's loyalty programme as it allows you to convert your trips into miles that can be accumulated and redeemed later. For example, Scoot customers can earn and redeem miles on KrisFlyer, which is a Singapore Airlines Group loyalty programme.
Travelers from India can access these destinations through low-cost carriers, such as Scoot, from various Indian cities such as Amritsar, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Tiruchirappalli, and Trivandrum, with Coimbatore and Vishakhapatnam to join the network soon. All Scoot flights from India transit in Singapore, before connecting to the above destinations on non-stop flights. Flights to Langkawi and Jakarta operate four times and three times a week respectively, and flights to the other destinations operate daily.
