Getting the Best Fare
There are three golden rules to getting the very best fare.
- Book as early as possible – book your flights as soon as you know for sure what your term and exam dates are to get the best fares possible.
- Be flexible – High demand flights sell out fast and get expensive quickly. You can get the best fares if you’re flexible with your travel dates. Mid-week and Saturday flights are often cheaper.
- Travel Light – at FlySafair you have the option to travel without checked luggage and save. Each passenger gets a free allocation of 7kg of carry-on luggage which includes one small suitcase and another small personal bag like a handbag or slimline laptop case.
- Use our Low Fare Finder – to find the cheapest available flights over a month period, visit our Low Fare Finder.
Moving into or Leaving Residence
Moving into or leaving a residence usually means carrying your whole life back and forth. With FlySafair you have the option to not only select a 20kg checked in suitcase, but you can actually take a second 20kg checked in bag too. This means that you can carry up to 40kg of checked in luggage with you.
We also happily transport sports and musical equipment for a reasonable fee, so if you’re travelling with a guitar, bicycle or surfboard, then you’re looking at the right airline!
