Find out special discounts:
Before booking the tickets for your travel, ensure that the cost includes all taxes and fees. It is better to compare the rates on different websites and go for the one which offers you for least cost.
Find out whether any special discounts are there. For instance, some travel agents provide special discounts for students, senior persons or those people who are the members of certain organizations.

For student travel, special discounts are available for aged 26 or under. If you are a student or aged below 26, just contact the student authorities such as – STA, student universe and council travel in order to find out the special deals.
For seniors and for members of certain organizations:
You will find special deals for seniors. It is better to find out the airlines which offer you concessions for AARP members.
