How to buy plane tickets

  • Aviasales
  • Aviasales can not only buy plane tickets, and hotel book

    App from the makers of the eponymous website, which at the dawn of its videobloggers advertised Yuri Dude. For my taste, it turned out better and easier to use than the website. Convenient filters that enable you to choose the optimal flight, can be applied after a search of tickets on chosen route. There is a function “Schedule of prices” for those wishing to fly to a certain place, but undecided date. Really convenient and intuitive. Unfortunately, recently the app began to see discrepancies with the ticket, paid baggage. And sometimes buy a ticket directly from the airline is cheaper. So be sure to check. Trust Aviasales 100 percent I wouldn’t recommend it. But as a reference it is excellent.

What to look for in a new city

  • TripAdvisor
  • Not the most convenient interface from TripAdvisor, but a huge database

    The most popular travel app. You have probably seen the green nakleechki with inscriptions from TripAdvisor on the doors of cafes and restaurants.
