Air Travel And Luxury Vacations - How Airlines Works

When you are buying a ticket online you pay what you are asked to pay without noticing anything else as you are in hurry to go on your vacation and for that you need the tickets. In reality the amount you pay online is a lot more than you would have paid had you bought the ticket from your travel agency. Airlines spend a lot on advertisements that convince the public to buy their tickets online. People who travel a lot for business purposes and people who choose luxury vacations do not care whatever the airfare is, they just pay it and here is where the airlines benefit. They charge those customers more who want the tickets at early dates and the customers pay that amount because they have no other choice. The airlines keep changing the prices at daily basis and threat the people by setting last dates and that is how they make people pay a lot more than the actual price of a ticket.

By changing prices people get to know the trend of the variation in prices and they buy the tickets which are the cheapest before prices go up again but in actual that cheap rate is not cheap, it is just the lowest as compared to the other rates but very high as compared to the actual price of the ticket when bought from the travel agencies.
