For all travelers, the price of an air ticket comes to mind firstly. To book a reasonable flight tickets, here are some tips:
If you want to buy a ticket on a website, here are some of the popular ones, namely: Skyscanner, Expedia, Kayak or The Flight deal, etc. We recommend checking and comparing offers to get the best deal. According to research, the best day to catch a good deal is on Tuesday, the price of tickets is normally going up and is expensive on Friday and on the weekend. Remember to clear cookies for each search.
If you have a pretty good budget and do not want to spend too much time moving among airports, you can search for direct flights to main airports like: Ho Chi Minh airport and Noi Bai airport. You will have more time for travel and discover the destination than sitting in a lounge in the airport.
If you are seeking a lower price ticket, be prepared to book a connecting flight with stops in one of the international airports in Asia such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Doha, etc before getting a flight to Vietnam. Another option, you can also ask and check prices at travel agencies near you.
Each airline agency has different policies for luggage allowance.
For economy tickets, the carry- on bag allowance is normally 7kg, and the check- in bag is 20kg, however, for some low cost airlines, the price of check- in bags will be charged and invoiced separately. Pay close attention to suitcase weight because it will be charged at a high rate for excessive weight at the airport.
