Whenever you travelling to the US, just before you seek or buy a direct fare to your destination, always check the proximity of your destination to New York, if its less than 12 hours and the fare difference is above 150,000, its more economica l flying in through New York. If you travelling light.

New York most often has the cheapest fares compared to other cities in the US.

There are a million reasons you could tell their immigration if you asked why you flying in through New York instead of the City you indicated while applying for visa.

Good morning all

This is for mostly our Igbo brothers that travels mostly to Asia, that usually wants to convert their business or tourism visa or extend it

When you are initially given either the first 3 months or 2 months, make sure you buy a ticket to return with your visa duration but the ticket must be valid for a year

Eg

You going to Malaysia your visa is to expire march 25 2018,

You buy a return ticket for, before , atleas 2 days before visa expiration but make sure the ticket is valid for a year.

You could easily tell your travel agent to open it , then extend it to a future date

You would only have to pay for the service or if the initial class you booked isn't available for your preferred new date, you pay for upgrade to a new class

Good Evening
I intend traveling one way a family of 3(infant below 2) to Perth Australia. Can you help me with the cheapest available flight. Period between last week of March and first week of April. Thanks in advance
Re: Tweaking Your Travel Routes and Time For Cheap Fares/budget travel by kagari: 2:06pm On Feb 26
If you are on a student visa, and your study duration is 2 years and above

You are safe to buy a one way ticket, but always advice your travel agents to insure that the airline would lift you

Normally you should be able to go with one way but sometimes airlines tweaks grin, their policies too

OK your best bet should be Turkish air for the 31st of march

For 2 adults 1 infants: 702 200

The journey is over 40 hours ( flying time plus transit time ). But for that price I think the long trip is worth it compared to other fares from other airlines.

Buying now against a travel by DEC is not economically wise. Fares would still be on the high side against that period now

@kagari, Thanks for all the good job you've been doing on this thread. Grateful to have you provide answers to my questions below please.

Travelling in the first week of August to Toronto, is it advisable to buy a ticket now (in March)?

Second, with a Canadian visa, will I need a transit visa if I'm travelling through the United States?

Buying now is OK cause after the easter period we would be getting set for the summer season which is like the peak season in aviation calender

If you travelling through united states with an airline domiciled in the United states you won't be needing a transit visa, but any other airline, you would be needing a transit visa.

Your Canadian visa is inconsequential in this case

Thanks for the quick turnaround kagari.
If I understand you well, booking Delta Air to the US and Air Canada to continue the journey into Canada comes with no transit visa?

You would need a transit visa unless the two airlines are code sharing or you have a US visa

Why that itinery, going to be very expensive minus the transit visa unless you are flying with airline flyers units

Now I'm confused. But in your earlier response you posited that if I flew an airline domiciled in the US that I would not need a transit visa and Delta is a US airline in my reckoning, then why the change in ruling? Pls explain.

Meanwhile, I called the number on your profile the line was switched off.

Let's say you booking an airline to Toronto in Canada, you book Delta air that terminates in let's say new York to board air Canada you booked seoerately to Toronto .

This can only be possible if you have a transit visa unless Delta air won't even lift you here in Nigeria.

But if you book a Delta airline that partners with air Canada to Toronto, in most cases you won't need a transit visa

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 )

@kagari
Any reason why tickets are cheaper on Wednesdays and Sundays? Does this hold true throughout those days or particular time windows?

Please enlighten us.

This is solely my opinion from experience and not a fact

Wednesday is seen as midweek and its believe to be peak of all activities be it school, work etc, air activities on Wednesday tends to be lower maybe that is why mostly fares are cheaper that day

Then for Sunday a lot of religious persons don't usually want to fly on sundays, I got to notice this when I want to book tickets for my clients, when I give them a Sunday date they are relunctant, some go ahead just because it's cheaper and not because they feel comfortable travelling on sundays
