How to save on China domestic air travel?

Find China flight schedule on the internet

A few years ago, if anyone wantsed to purchase a plane ticket to China, they would have to visit an airline representative branch office at their own country. It is very easy to buy an air ticket now. Travel to China becomes very easy, you can search China flight times and prices online. Airlines' website, like China Airline, Air China, China Eastern, China Southern Airlines, Air China, Hainan Airline, and Shanghai Airline have their own English website, these sites will only show their own airline's flight. Travel portals have interface for you to search all airline's flights. You can easily find website adresses of China airlines by using Google search or any other search engines.

Buy Discount China Flights through travel service or airline offices

China airlines normally offer discounts from as much as 80% off published rate, these discounted China air tickets are not always available. China travel services can help you get the lowest prices. You have finalized your itinerary, then confirm and get the tickets. However be warned about discount airfares, that it comes will very restricted change and cancellation policy. Full fare tickets offer flexibility to change dates and you lose less if you cancel tickets.

When book China flights, there are some common mistakes, that could bring you problems when you are at the airport, so you have to make sure you do the following:

Provide correct passenger details to airline, avoid troubles

When you give your details to either airline, or a travel agent to make the flight reservation for you. You have to provide EXACTLY the same details as appears on your passport. The best way to send is via email, or via travel agent's website.

If people call you Chrisy for Christina, or Bill for William, when you book flights, bear in mind that airport staff will check your ticket against your passport, so you provide EXACTLY the same information as appears on passport to book China flights.

Verify your ticket with airline

Since 2008, all China airlines have been using e-tickets, meaning you no longer have a paper ticket. You can however verify your ticket on airline's official website. To do this, first is to find airline's official website, second locate "Verify Tickets" or similar terms, the last step is to enter your name and ticket number that you got from your travel agent.

Book with a reliable agent who provide 24X7 service

You may think it's all the same no matter through whom you book the flights with. This is a common mistake. Things don't always go as planned. Think if you are at airport, only then you find your flight is cancelled by airline, you need to book yourself a new flight, but your agent's phone is always busy, or even worst nobody answers the phone. This is the time i mean you need to find a decent agent who have 24/7 service. Otherwise it will be very frustrating.

Pack Light
