>Wanting to get plane tickets for Kyiv, Ukraine for June - July
>See a roundtrip ticket for $804
>Hold off on buying figuring prices might go down
>A day later everything is $944 or more
I have literally no experience with buying plane tickets.
Did I mess up badly or will prices go down again?
Listen here you noob. Websites track you via cookies. What you need to do is cover your tracks so that they don't know you were looking for a plane ticket to Kyiv or anywhere for that matter.
You could easily pay a few hundred dollars more if you don't know how to clear your history/cookies.
Step 1: clear your cookies
Step 2: download tor
Step 3: use tor to book plane ticket
compare prices on google flights, skyscanner, ita software matrix, priceline
It will go down again although I don't know if it will go down to $804. Wait it out, it might take a couple of weeks. Check every day. Usually prices go slightly up on weekends as they know that's when people have time to look for tickets. Some say that the cheapest prices are on Tuesdays after midnight but I don't believe that, although I have seen prices drop mid week.
So yes, just be patient and keep checking every day. It might not drop down too $804 but it might come close or if you're lucky it might drop even further.
I suggest signing up for Airfarewatchdog fare alerts. http://www.flyforfreeguide.com/about-scott/ this guy also sends out cheap ticket alerts. If anyone else has good fare alert sites let's make a list that maybe we could add to the sticky.
It turns out I can get a ticket from a different city just a few hours away and it will save me over $300.
Furthermore, it costs just a few dollars to get back and forth by car. I'm just going to do that.
Thanks for all the tips!
