Tips to getting cheap flights

It is possible to get cheap flights, regardless of your preferred flight path

I find it is cheaper to fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday than any other day of the week. Weekends tend to be very busy, and Monday is for business people getting back to work. For even more flexibility, most of the search engines above allow you to view prices for flights on each day of the week.

According to a Skyscanner, the best time to book a domestic flight is at least three weeks in advance and two weeks in advance for an international flight. Prices start increasing after the two-week mark and skyrocket the week before the departure date, so you’ll be sure to snag a cheap flight by booking well in advance.

Earning frequent flyer miles through travel rewards credit cards can earn you free flights. Almost all major airlines have frequent flyer cards, it is advisable to register for one whenever you book your flight if you already don’t have it. Some of the cards also sometimes gets you discounts and access to airports VIP lounges.

List of Travel Insurance Providers for Non-European Students

 

Students from non-EU countries are not covered for any free medical attention off-campus and must therefore have their own private insurance. Please note that heavy levies are charged for all hospitalization and it is advised to make provision for adequate medical insurance. Non-EU students are required to show proof of comprehensive medical insurance when registering with the Garda National Immigration Bureau. Proof of health insurance is also required when applying for a student visa.

Students are strongly advised to arrange insurance for private medical care as this ensures the choice of hospital, doctor and hospital accommodation in the event of illness.

Please note that you can only arrange health insurance with an Irish Health Insurance Provider when you are living in Ireland.
