cheap plane tickets: plane tickets by seller


    Plane ticket sellers


    Your expenses can be affected by the place where you buy your airline tickets. Each agent has different ways of functioning and different operational costs, so the tickets' prices are strongly affected.

    Basically, you have 3 sellers at your disposal to purchase tickets:   



  Travel agencies

  Consolidators (Bucket shops)


    Shortly, about the characteristics of plane ticket selling companies         


    Buying tickets from airlines or travel agencies     


    Airlines usually sell their own tickets, so the selection is relatively poor.

    You will find more destinations, more airlines to fly with, if you choose to buy your airplane ticket from a travel agency. Because they have contacts with multiple airlines and sell their tickets, you will have lots of choices.


    Buying tickets from consolidators


   The consolidators (or the "bucket shops") are travel agencies. Most modern travel agencies are consolidators. This means, that they buy airline tickets from the airline companies and re-sell them to clients. Of course, the prices of consolidators and airlines differ. Most often, consolidators have lower prices than the airlines.
