Orbitz Coupons and How to Use Orbitz Travel
Posted on Monday, January 17th, 2011 at 12:12 pm
Using Orbitz Travel service can help you get a great deal on an airline flight. It is one of the most competitive air fare services available. Using Orbitz coupons when they are available can increase your savings.
Easy to Use
One of the great benefits of choosing a flight with Orbitz is that their website is very easy to use and very easy to navigate. You can usually find exactly what you are looking for and book it quickly. Some nice features include being able to check multiple airports within your area (70 miles) all at once instead of having to do separate searches and the ability to select for only non-stop flights.
In my experience, non stop flights are worth paying a little bit more, especially if you wind up spending less money on having to buy lunch or dinner while you wait hours for your next flight. Also, if you are traveling with kids, you’ll appreciate not having to drag them across the terminal or be in danger of missing your next connection.
Saving with Orbitz Deals and Coupons
Orbitz is really good when it comes to finding a flight when you aren’t flexible with the times you can travel. While you might get a better deal on another site if you can travel at the last minute, the fares that you find on Orbitz are very competitive. To make the pricing even sweeter, take advantage of Orbitz coupons and limited time specials. To find these deals, check out the coupon database on FreeCoupons.com. There are usually several Orbitz coupons that you can use.
Be aware that even with the specials and coupons, the price you get may not include the mandatory service fee, usually $6 per ticket. One sneaky way to get around this is to find a price on Orbitz and then contact the airline directly to see if you can get that same price. Of course, if you do that, you won’t be able to use the Orbitz coupons.
Timing and Booking
One thing that I have noticed with Orbitz is that the best deals are usually gone quickly. So, if you see a flight and a price that you like, don’t hesitate to finalize the booking. You may find that the prices can revert or even triple in cost within a few hours. By all means do your research and shop around. This way, when you spot a great deal you can pounce on it.
Once you book your deal, you’ll have to figure out whether you want e-tickets or real printed tickets. The printed tickets come with a fee attached along with an additional surcharge if you are in a hurry and want your tickets to arrive quickly.
Finally, it is important to know that Orbitz does not have agreements with all airlines, so searching their site may leave out some options. For example, Southwest Airlines (Vacations) can not be found on Orbitz. Southwest, however does have its own deals and coupon codes listed on FreeCoupons.com.
