Flights to the USA take visitors to a land of myriad colours and contrasts. From tranquil beaches of Hawaii to neon-lit craziness of Las Vegas and architectural wonders in New York to the exotic wilderness in Alaska; this one of the most powerful nations in the world is full of wonders and allures holidaymakers from all corners of the globe. Quite naturally, tons of Britons board USA bound flights to explore the country’s vivid facets. However, how to get economical as well as hassle-free flight experience is the thing most flyers would like to know. Here are some tips and strategies that may help Britons in availing cheap air tickets and, at the same time, reducing the complexity of air travel.
• There are scores of direct and indirect flights from the UK to USA. KLM, British Airways and American Airlines are popular carriers that offer direct flights from London Heathrow to New York City. Similarly, a number of airlines operate indirect flights that connect various airports in the countries. Booking tickets for indirect flights are often cheaper.

• There is a general rule – the closer you get to the travel dates, higher the price you pay for the tickets. Initially, most airlines sell flight tickets at cheaper rates so as to fill the seats early. It is therefore advisable to grab your tickets as early as possible. Also, avoid weekends to fly, as it is when hordes of working folks and holidaymakers choose to travel. Ait tickets are often cheapest around the midweek.

• Enrolling in the frequent flyer programme from reputed airline/s may also save a lot of money for regular travellers. These loyalty programmes enable member passengers to gain (miles) points for every booking of tickets. Once enough points are accumulated, travellers can redeem them to avail discount on tickets for their airline’s flights.

• Just like any other shopping, getting best deals for flights requires a careful research and well-informed decisions. There is no dearth of discounted deals available online for flights from UK’s leading airports to major cities in the USA. Take a look at some reputed websites and compare them in terms of price. Lastly, check the price against the fare available on the airline’s own website.

• When booking connecting flights, the chances of baggage getting misplaced can increase manifold if one books with separate airlines. Hence it is often a better idea to book with a single airline on the long haul route from UK to the USA that features one or more stops.

• Research well and be acquainted with climatic conditions and temporary airport issues associated with the destination. Thunderstorms, fog and snowfall can be a deterrent factor that may delay flights headed for some cities in the USA.
