Tips To Book The Best Flights To Bangalore And Save Money | Bengaluru - the silicon valley of India, the mecca of the software industry and the garden city - it is famous by various names, and people have various reasons to visit this city.


If you are planning on a quick sojourn to this beautiful metropolis, you’ll have to fly down to the swanky Kempegowda Airport in Devanahalli on the city outskirts and hire a cab to the city.

Here are a few hacks to save money when booking your flight tickets to Bangalore without having to compromise on the quality of the flight.

Use your card and cash in!

When booking your tickets using debit or credit cards, be sure to check for discounts since many banks offer incredible discounts on payments through their cards. These will usually be mentioned right on the booking page itself. Generally, credit card users will get a better deal than debit cardholders. And, if you don’t have a credit card, try checking with a friend if they can book the tickets using their credit card to take advantage of the offers.



Wallets can work better than plastic

If you use virtual wallets like Paytm or Mobikwik, watch out for cash-back offers from them. For example, if you are looking to fly from Bangalore Airport, then you might see that digital wallet services like Paytm sometimes offer 6% or more cashback when you book flights through them. The cashback will be credited to your account immediately after you book the flight. So, be sure to check for card offers, compare it with the wallet cashback offers, and choose the better one!

It pays to book ahead

You know what they say about that early bird. Always book your tickets in advance. If you want to catch a flight on any of the top routes from Bangalore Airport for, say, November 30th, don’t wait until November 20th to do the booking. During the last two weeks preceding the flight date, the demand for flight tickets tend to skyrocket, sending ticket prices soaring! So, try to book your flight tickets about 30-45 days in advance, when prices tend to be a lot softer.  

Flight tickets are not stocks, so time it right!

Some airlines offer flights at cheaper rates for specific departure times. For example, flights departing at 2 a.m. can be cheaper than those at 7 a.m. The reason is obvious. Flyers often choose to avoid 2 a.m. flights in order to get a good night’s sleep. So, if you are a night bird flying from Bangalore, then 2 a.m. flights are definitely for you! As a bonus, you can explore the ritzy shopping havens at the Kempegowda International Airport at leisure!

Use different flights for travelling onward and return

Try using two different flights for your onward and return flights. This method can help you save some money in certain situations. For example, suppose that you are traveling from Dabolim Airport (Goa) to Bengaluru Airport. For a single leg of the journey, one flight booking might offer you Rs 500 cashback, while another might offer a little more discount. Or perhaps, one flight carrier may charge you more for return journey while booking from different flight service may avail you better discount. So, it is essential to check all permutations and combinations before making the final booking to get the best deal on flights.
