Not all trips are urgent. If you are looking to travel, but don't know when to go or when to buy your plane tickets, timing can make a difference. In general, Tuesday and Wednesday tend to be the cheapest days to fly and tickets are usually less when purchased 1 to 2 months before your trip. This does not always hold, especially when booking tickets around the holiday season. To find out when to buy and when to wait, try visiting www.farecast.com. FareCast offers an easy format that tells you when to buy. It takes where current prices are and what past trends have been and then lets you know whether you can expect the price to go up, go down or hold.
Oh, and if you want to keep track of places you tend to go a lot, create a profile on Kayak.com. You can note the places you've been and trips you're going on. Get an idea of what airfare is going for to the places to you like visiting. With these online tools, you can get a good idea of where to go, when, and how to pay less. Save on airplane tickets and then save on the hotel by staying at a nearby Extended Stay Hotels. So where do you want to go next?

Traveling is great: new places, new people, new traditions. But nowadays it is getting difficult to travel because of the safety measures. Everyone needs to pass a clearance check before getting visa. I’ve heard that the British Embassy requires fingerprints scanned before issuing visas (http://www.huliq.com/288/printed-for-travel-uk-introduces-finger-scan-for-visa-applicants). This is good for the security, but I bet this will make difficulties for travelers.
