Travel Tips: The best time to buy airline tickets on TravelStart

Hello fellow Africans.

Today’s blog post is different, I am writing it from the comfort of my warm bed, in windy Craighall Park sipping on ginger tea from my Mickey Mouse mug.

What’s new, you ask? Well, a lot has happened since the last blog post but what has stood out is the fact that I have started thinking seriously about my travel goals. I have begun to revisit my dreams of visiting Africa in all its glory which requires me to look for cheap ways of achieving this goal. I have only been to one other African country because I always end up spending my money on things that give me instant gratification. I’m also pretty confident that I am not the only one who finds saving money hard, but that’s not the point – the point is I have found a website that has a simple way of booking cheap flights. Travelstart website has flight specials, and it lists both international and domestic destinations.

Flights from Johannesburg to Cape Town

How I managed to save was by booking my flight ticket on Tuesday, but the website also has cheap flights on Wednesdays too.
