Practical tips to help you improve your credit rating and avoid expensive high interest loans

Five Simple Easyjet Cheats

If you time it right and know some of the tricks it’s possible to make the most of genuine Easyjet bargains. Here are a few tips to help you:

Book as soon as possible and check back to see if prices drop – Easyjet have a price promise that guarantees you that if the cost of the flights falls after your booking they will refund the difference. Check back on their website from time to time to see if this has happened and you could save a significant amount. The refund will be in the form of a voucher and you do need to call them to claim.

Don’t carry hard sided hand luggage – if you think you might be edging towards the maximum hand luggage size it’s worth packing it into a soft-sided bag that will be more flexible and enable you to squash it down if necessary.

Know the best time to book – Easyjet release their tickets four times per year:

Travel period:Tickets go on sale:
29 Feb 16 – 20 Mar 16Already on sale
21 Mar 16 – 26 Jun 16Already on sale
27 Jun 16 – 11 Sep 16Early Oct 15
12 Sep 16 – 30 Oct 16Early Dec 15

By booking as soon as they are released (and making use of the price promise) you are guaranteed the lowest possible fares.

Avoid paying for a good seat by checking in up to 30 days in advance – The earlier you check in the more likely you are to be allocated a decent seat without having to pay for the privilege. Easyjet allow you to check in up to 30 days in advance which should give you plenty of time.

Take a packed lunch – The only restrictions on what you can take on board are for liquids so you can plan ahead depending on the time of your flight and take yourself a picnic to save having to pay the airline charges (and eat the airline food). Most airports have places you can buy a sandwich so you don’t even need to bring anything from home.
