People will tell you a lot of weird and funny practices when it comes to booking your flights. In fact, these myths have been around for a while and they just won't go away. But are these myths really true? Well, here are the 5 truths behind the myths of flight booking.

Cheap Flights On Tuesdays

According to the Daily Mail, a lot of people consider Tuesdays as a magic day where the airfares go lower. However, this whole myth isn't that accurate and it's purely coincidence. There are other days of the week wherein prices also go low most especially if you book 200 to 21 days beforehand.

Clearing The Browser History Gives You Lower Fares

Deleting the browser history is probably one of the most famous myths of flight booking but it doesn't really do anything. Again, it's probably just coincidence and the same thing applies when using the incognito mode. Using the incognito function wouldn't really lower down the fairs but it helps to block unwanted ads and emails.

Last Minute Flight Tickets Are Cheaper

According to Yul deals, this myth is partially true because some airlines do offer cheaper prices for last minute flight tickets. But most big airline companies, especially those regular flights, don't really lower the prices down but even make them higher.

One Site Always Has The Best Deals

Another myth of flight booking, this one would just really need common sense to understand that this is not true. According to GOD SAVE THE POINTS, not every airline company shows its fares that are why people think only one site has the best deals. If you try to modify your searches, you'd find out there are better deals out there.

Fares Are Lower If You're Attending A Funeral

The truth about this myth is that prices are actually higher because most flights that passengers book are usually just a few days beforehand. However, there are some companies that do offer discounts but it's for those flights that are super expensive so it's just like paying for the regular price.

It's quite a sad reality knowing these myths aren't true. However, these 5 truths behind the myths of flight booking might just help you find other ways to get cheaper airfares.
