I heard from someone that when ur buying tickets online, you can get really good deals if you look really early in the morning, like 2-4a.m. I was wandering if this was true or not?

I wonder if itīs possible to book one ticket in Sweden to one person who go from Philippines to Sweden and send the ticket.

Yes, this is known as a PTA-ticket. Not all agencies will be able to do this for you, but it shouldn't be too complicated. The cost is typically somewhat higher than buying a similar ticket in the Philippines directly, and considerably higher than a ticket from a Western country to the Philippines. Note that this is easiest with e-ticketing, as then no tickets have to be send (by express mail, or using a travel agent in the Philippines). In such cases a simple fax or email with details will suffice. Make sure you have the correct passport details, such as the spelling of the name, and that visa and exit requirements are met.--Jeroen.

To writer Cagdas: If you are from NJ, there are a lot of travel agents selling consolidator tickets to the Philippines, meaning heavily discounted airline tickets . For shopping purposes, email paskongpinoy@yahoo.com for rates for various travel periods.

Hello, How early is too early to purchase your ticket? I'm trying to book my ticket from Seattle to Singapore in Dec (Dec 5 - Jan 8), but the fares are astronomical. Some agents tell me that it's because of the holiday season and all the seats are selling out, but some others tell me that the seats are unavailable because they have not been released by the airlines? What do you think? Should I wait for a few more months? I'm just worried that the seats truly will sell out....

Its very helpful if you know little tips like these. guess what? The tips actually work!!! I just booked a flight to Maui and saved 39% on my airfare by getting a wednesday flight with a stop-over! but I do have a question, what about people traveling in groups? How do they get the best discounts and how large do the groups have to be to get the best bargain?

Thank you. I have no experience with booking groups, as I've booked at most five people at once. Probably you should be with ten or more to be able to get something of the price. Since nowadays most agents ask booking fees, you already safe on that, but I admit that is not much.--Jeroen.
