HomeNews hubTravel tips5 Top Tips for Airfare Savings

Want to know how to save your Rands and Cents when it comes to your unique travel? 

Look no further, your gurus are here.

1. BOOST YOUR AIRLINE AGREEMENTS

Negotiate and maximise your airline agreement with our help. With contacts in high places, and the strength of the Flight Centre Travel Group network behind us, we can deliver great savings on multiple airline options. Plus with Global Fare Finder, unique to Stage and Screen, we can source competitive fares for travel to and from overseas destinations. We can also give you the heads-up on what’s reasonable to ask of your preferred airline as part of your agreement.

2. ‘OPEN SKIES’ APPROACH

While some of our clients are more comfy with preferred airline agreements, there's benefits in having an open mind towards your airfare policy. A ‘Best Fares of the Day’ approach, where you can choose fares from a range of airlines rather than limiting yourself to a monogamous relationship, can often deliver bigger fare savings. From a solo musician, to a bus load of rugby players, we’ll score you Best Fare Of Day  options for all your travellers. By offering fare alternatives from up to three airlines, you get to choose the most suitable and cost effective solution.  

3. ADVANCE BOOKINGS

For travel that can be planned ahead, try and book at least 21 days in advance as this can save you up to 70% in airfares. Travelling at off-peak times can also reward you with lower fares. The same principle applies to group travel bookings, whether you’re moving cast and crew, production teams, bands, or groups of executives, booking in advance is a sure-fire way to save Rands on airfares.

4. LEAVE MULTI-DESTINATION ITINERARIES TO THE EXPERTS

Making these complex bookings involves significant time, knowledge and supplier liaison. Our Travel Managers know the drill when it comes to multi-destination itineraries. We not only save you time and productivity costs, but we can also access fares from a range of channels, getting you the best price for your trip.

5. MINIMISE EXCESS

Whether you’re travelling with film cameras, sound equipment or musical instruments, excess baggage can create expensive add-ons. So let us book your flights and we can pre-arrange excess baggage and negotiate with the airline on your behalf. We can’t always secure waivers and favours, but we can save you a bundle of time, hassle and money.

 

There is one simple way to ensure you’re mazimising your travel budgets and that’s simply to drop us a line. You take care of the action in front of the cameras, while we take care of the action behind the scenes!
