Every time Air Asia starts promoting their promo tickets to any destinations, we will get excited. From the starting hours at 12 midnight, most of us will sacrifice our sleep in order to get the cheapest rate.
However, most of us especially those who are new with the booking system will eventually pay a lot more than just a ticket.
They are not only pay for the tickets, but they also have to pay for airport taxes, seat allocation, luggage, insurance and the system has been set the default for all these charges.
Here are some tips for those who only want to pay for the tickets + unavoidable taxes incurred:
- Choose your date to travel and destinations in advanced before the PROMO TIME starts. Example: KL-KUCH-KL on 30th March to 1st April 2012. The ticket fare is RM34 from KL-KUCH and RM31 from KUCH-KL. Plus Airport tax and fuel surcharge for both will end up the total amount of RM100.00;
