How to Find Inexpensive Tickets to China

How to find the least expensive tickets to China? Sometimes travel agencies include the agency’s service fee so that the cost will be a little higher. Sometimes it is necessary to ask three or four questions to determine the existence and amount of the fee. You can discuss the possibility of using frequent flier miles with your travel agency.  But the best place to find inexpensive international air tickets is online. You can go straight to one of the well-known online travel sites, such as Expedia.com, Travelocity.com, Hotwire.com or Priceline.com.


We have researched the least expensive airfare from New York to Kunming or Hong Kong, using the four sites mentioned above. The fares ranged from $1450 to $1204. But you cannot be certain which site will offer the cheapest international air tickets because the price varies from week to week. We have some money-saving tips for you.

DO NOT book a ticket from your home city to Kunming. You should book two tickets. The first from your home city to anyone of China's main international airports: Beijing Capital Airport (PEK), Shanghai Pudong Airport (PVG), or Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (CAN), or even Hong Kong Airport (HKG).  Then you should book a second ticket from that city to Kunming.  We recommend you give yourself at least 6-8 hours between the scheduled arrival of your international flight from your home city to one of the airports listed above and the scheduled departure of your domestic flight to Kunming.  This method will save a great deal of money.

Tips On inexpensive Air Tickets to China

1.       Patiently check several websites.

2.       Try several different departure and return dates if you can when searching for fares using the discount   websites. The difference a day or two can make may surprise you.  There is little logic to airfare pricing, so don’t try too hard to figure it out.

       Midnight travel on some airlines will have very low fares since not many people travel during those hours. Even if you aren’t sure that you want to leave at midnight, the savings might convince you otherwise. Whenever the search criteria allows you choices, take the ones that are the least restrictive for the airlines.

4.       You can get inexpensive air tickets if you can buy your tickets very early. Some airlines provide you discounts of up to 85% if you book your flight two or three months in advance. If you are certain of your trip, try to book your air tickets by this method for maximum savings.

       If you do not live in a major city, you might be able to travel by bus to take an international flight from a large city, thereby reducing your airfare considerably.

6.       Make sure that all taxes, surcharges, and fees have been added before you finalize the ticket purchase.

7.       In case you're booking a nonrefundable flight, be sure to read a site's rebooking and cancellation policies because these vary from airline to airline and site to site.

8.       Ensure that the price you're quoted is the price you're booking online.

Spending a few minutes to an hour doing some research online might save you hundreds of dollars.
