Airfare Deals

Finding a good airfare deal can be strenuous and often far too pedantic to sustain enthusiasm and attention. However, with a little bit of research and by using the right tools, one can find availability and travel on some really cheap fares. More often than not, airlines put restrictions on booking discounted fares. This may include restrictions in terms of specific days of the week, cancellations or changes.

Airfares for major Indian cities from the West Coast for April-May

Once you find a low fare, the main idea here is to book the fare after checking out the restrictions and fees. The last thing you want after booking a low fare is to pay extra for add-ons or changes/cancellations. Google Flights also allows you the option to set flight alerts. It’s pretty simple. All you have to do is set the parameters and filters for your travel dates, and you’ll get an alert every time there’s any upward or downward movement in fares.

Round-trip fares to India under $500
