To get a better and cheaper fare for your travel, plan and buy your tickets a month before travel, preferably Wednesdays and Sundays. Most of the time fares are cheaper on Wednesday and Sunday.


Prior to peak season try getting your tickets a at least a month to peak seasons, fares are more expensive during peak seasons

Peak seasons are:

Mid July - early September ( summer period )

Mid November - mid January ( winter season/Christmas break )

Flying direct to Abu Dhabi with emirates would cost you over 400,000 naira but alternatively you could travel thus;

Lagos - Dubai with north Vancouver air, its a 9 hours direct flight .

Then take a cab/bus to your location in Abu Dhabi

Bus fares from Dubai - Abu Dhabi is approx: 25 dirham's

Private cab fare from Dubai - Abu Dhabi is approx : 300 dirham

A dirham is approx 98.5 naira

So 25 dirham is approx 2500 for bus fare

300 dirham is approx 7500 for private cab fare

The last bus leaves by 11 pm at the Al- ghubaiba metro station very close to the airport

If you fly with this airline you would be arriving Dubai by 22:55, you won't meet the last bus, so you either choose to go with a private cab or sleep at the airport and wait for the first bus that departs by 6 am.

The bus departs every 20 mins

Just you know when you enter the public bus front seats are reserved for ladies and children

Hi,

All is ready for my trip from Abuja to California entring through LAX.
I intend to leave abuja on May 01,2018. When do you think i should buy the ticket to make it cheap?
Re: Tweaking Your Travel Routes and Time For Cheap Fares/budget travel by kenevision(m): 5:40pm On Jan 21

There isn't a cheaper fare for that route, there are direct flights to Vienna : Ethiopia air and KLM but Ethiopia is the cheapest but KLM has the shortest travel time of approx 10 hours plus stop over.

A rough idea of the fare cost for Ethiopia is around 334 000 on the average.

Hope this helps

Thanks alot bro, very helpful.

Well, let me keep making my plans with the amount you specified.

Am a low budget traveler though
