The expansion of the world-wide-web has made booking tickets for domestic flights as well as international, an easy task. All heckles caused by standing at long queues at airport counters and running to offices of travel agents have magnanimously reduced. Now, you can book airline tickets from the comfort of your homes, even, in between board meetings at your office. With the introduction of data cards, you can confirm your tickets from your laptop, even while on the go. Modern-day smartphones becoming viral is another step forward to easy purchasing of flight tickets. Now, you can have apps downloaded on your smartphone to confirm your seat on flights in a few simple and convenient steps.
Now, you may question, why go for an online booking, in the first place. What is it that makes it such an obvious choice? The answer lies in the fact that the number of options have increased largely. To be practical, there are umpteen websites dedicated to travel purposes, which continuously compete with each other to tempt more passengers to get engaged on their websites. As a consequence, there might be a differential price of the same seat on the same airline on two different airlines. For example, a Go Air ticket booking can display two different fares on the same flight on two different portals. This gives an option to passengers to choose the one offering a lesser price. Another easy option is to subscribe for notifications. This enables you to receive the best offers and package deals on a certain route as notifications on your mobile or into your email.
Online purchasing of tickets enables you to choose the best seats inside the in-flight cabin. Most websites have the option to select seats from all the available options. The entire seating arrangement is virtually displayed on the portal, with the vacant ones marked, unlike the system at airport counters. According to your travel habits, the selection can be made. Also, once your seat is confirmed that particular selection is marked as filled and no further booking for that particular one is allowed.
