Nothing beats a good flight fare deal.
Sometimes I really wish that flying can be SO dirt cheap that at the snap of a finger I can be boarding a flight to Sipadan or Sandakan and chill out on beach, say, three hours from now.
But then not all our fathers print money, so we just have to make do with earning a living and saving up for that very special year end trip. In my case, my travels mostly fall in the middle of the year. I just like to travel when no one is, less crowd.
We, however, do have a choice. Now imagine if I were to work for a big corporate company, hold a high position; (okay, you can start laughing now, cause I am; but yes, just imagine) I will be travelling to a lot of places for business. And the good thing about working for a company is that all your travel expenses will be covered.
Oh yea baby. You know what I mean.
I’ll be going for the most expensive hotel, the most expensive restaurants, and most importantly,
Business class flight.
What if you are not important enough to fly business class? Hey, you still can fly on company’s expense and don’t have to book a flight 30 days in advance just to get a cheaper fair, and you can fly to London and back ANYTIME you want. FLEXIBLE dates.
If I were you, I would take few days leave and stay back and fly back on company’s budget. Free trip, free air tickets, and if you’re lucky, free accommodations.
But then I’m not working for a big corporation, do not have a very generous boss and do not have a very big fat bank account.
So I have to be like every backpacker out there (hey I enjoy backpacking, it’s fun and I get to meet many travelers around the world and share experiences with them)
and PLAN (yes I do plan, not often, but beggars can’t be choosers) for my trip so I will know what date I am flying in and out of a destination, hence to obtain the cheapest possible flight fare.
MAS airline is offering this FOUR new fare options where travelers can choose among
MHlow Fares (for me! Yay!),
MHbasic (also for me! Yay! This one can change date in case of emergency),
MHsmart (this is for
MHflex (this is for my business class imaginary self who has no budget constraint whatsoever).
These offers are only available for domestic flights
MAS has now removed domestic fuel surcharge and the All In Fares are cheaper. Check out the reductions!
OMG. Speaking of flexible dates, if I could actually recollect all the money I “wasted” on paying for brand new tickets on flights that I’ve missed last year, and let me remind you, three in a year was a lot (twice in the bloody same month!).
DAMN IT, how many times does a girl need to lose her flights to prove a point!
(that it’s about time they come out with flexible discounted fare).
I would have saved so much money from all my trips from MHsmart fare.
That's it! Before I buy any more air tickets, I am going to check out www.malaysiaairlines.com by clicking on their website every day from now on.
psst: I heard another air tickets promo coming up right after CNY, I got my eyes set on going to penang and alor setar in Feb and March, but shhh. Tee hee
