The Brazilian aviation has grown in recent years, thus more people are traveling by plane in the country. However, despite having increased demand for flights, in dispute of passengers, airlines often offer many promotions, which makes it possible to buy cheap airline tickets if you follow some tips that we will write below.
A Day In Brazil are pleased to tell you that there are a couple of neat tricks that you can do to save yourself money on flights around Brazil.
The first tip is to book your flight to Brazil as early as possible. Thus, even on holidays (Christmas, New Year, and Carnival) you will be able to get higher discounts in airline tickets. We highly recommend that you buy your ticket to Brazil with at least three months before the date of arrival.
Travel around Brazil is always a great experience, but if you want to save money on flights the best time is to fly between July and November and after the second week of January until the end of June. Avoid to fly in July (schools vacations).
Another cost’s saving strategy to employ on your days in Brazil is to fly via alternative hub. In general, Brazilian cities have only one major airport and a secondary. The idea is to use the less busy airports. For example, if you are flying from Rio de Janeiro to São Paulo, is often cheaper to fly via Galeão Airport to Guarulhos Airport than to fly via Santos Dumont Airport to Congonhas Airport.
