  • Hey everyone, how are you doing?

    嗨,大家過得好嗎?

  • It's Sunday which means it's time for another episode of Gunnarolla University.

    今天是星期日,我們每周 Gunnarolla University 的時間又到啦!

  • Synchronizerman wants to know about how to plan a trip abroad if you're on a budget?

    Synchronizerman 想知道如何小資出國玩。

  • Well, there are tons of steps involved in planning a trip, but in today's lesson I wanted to focus on booking flights and how I use Google to find the best fares.

    嗯,其實制定旅遊計畫時會涉及到很多層面,但今天我想聚焦在訂機票這件事情上,我會示範如何用 Google 來找最划算的票價。

  • Class is in session.

    課程開始囉!

  • First of all, time for a paradigm shift.

    首先,我們應該換個思考模式。

  • Don't tell yourself you're looking for the cheapest fare, you're looking for the best available fare that you are comfortable paying.

    不要只想著找到最便宜的機票,而是要找到自己能夠負擔的最佳票價。

  • With the exception of Budget Airlines and low cost carriers, which tend to have more fixed pricing.

    撇除掉價格通常很固定的廉價航空。

  • When it comes to major airlines, the price of flying can fluctuate so much that it's almost impossible to know when you'll get the absolute cheapest price.

    當我們提到主流航空公司,它的票價波動大,以至於你很難精準地買到最便宜的機票。

  • That being said, there are optimal times to book your flight.

    話雖如此,但還是有購買機票的最佳時機喔!

  • A study by Cheapair.com, which I'll link to in the description box below.

    我會將 Cheapair.com 所做的研究放在下方資訊欄。

  • Found that 21 to 105 days before you have to leave is the prime booking window where you'll find the best fares for a flight.

    它們發現在行前 21 到 105 天是購買機票的最佳時機。

  • There is no such thing as a last minute day of deal, so make sure you organize, because booking your flights last minute is not a good idea.

    其實並沒有「最後一天」購票優惠,所以還是要有計畫,畢竟在行前最後一分鐘購買機票不是一個明智的決定。

  • Now when it comes to when you should fly.

    那到底什麼時候飛比較划算呢?

  • Historically speaking, mid-week, that's Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, generally have lower fares than a Friday, Sunday, or Monday departure when you'll find more business and vacation travel.

    根據經驗,在周間例如星期二、星期三、星期四,通常比出差或度假較常選擇的星期五、星期六、星期日和星期一出發的機票便宜。

  • If you know where you're going, you might also want to research when the low season or the rainy season is.

    如果你已經決定好旅遊目的地了,你應該也會調查當地的旅遊淡季或是雨季吧?

  • Although it's always a rainy season when I'm involved.

    雖然我去旅行時常遇到雨季。

  • Again, these are general tips but a good starting point when you're researching flights.

    再重複一次,這些只是最普遍的小妙招,但卻是你在搜尋機票時一個好的開始。

  • So, how do you go about finding the best fare when there are so many different airlines?

    那到底要怎麼在眾多的航空公司中選到最佳的票價呢?

  • Well, there are basically three ways to do this.

    基本上有三種方式可以實踐。

  • You can book through a travel agent, they're usually very knowledgeable and might have access to whole sale deals that you won't find online.

    你可以透過旅行社預訂,他們通常資源很豐富,也握有你在網路上絕對找不到的獨家優惠。

  • Or if you wanna have more control, you can book the flight yourself by doing research online.

    但如果你希望自己更有掌控權的話,也可以在線上自行訂購機票。

  • You can do it through a third party booking website, like Expedia or Priceline.

    你可以透過獨立的訂票網站預訂機票如:Expedia 或 Priceline。

  • These sites will allow you to compare different airlines, buy package deals, and make your bookings through the site.

    這些網站會幫你比較各個航空公司的差異,你可以在網站上訂購機加酒等一整套的行程。

  • Or if you're like me and you want full control and you'd rather make your booking directly with the airline.

    又或者你跟我一樣喜歡完全掌控自己的行程,你寧可直接向航空公司訂票。

  • You can use a flight aggregator like Skyscanner or Google flights.

    你可以使用航班彙整資訊網如: Skyscanner 或 Google 航班。

  • I love Google flights.

    我喜歡用 Google 航班。

  • It's got everything you need and a really easy to use interface, it's the perfect tool for research and discovery.

    你想查什麼航班它都有,且操作介面簡單,真的是個很完美的搜尋工具。

  • Unlike other Google owned websites.

    不像其他 Google 旗下的網站。

  • Let's say that you know your destination, but your dates are flexible and you want to find the best fare.

    假設你已經決定好旅遊目的地,但出發時間很彈性,你想搜尋最佳票價。

  • Well, you put in your destination and if you look in the calendar, you can see how much the flight will cost if you were to book today.

    那麼就輸入你的目的地,然後看看日曆,你可以看到如果在當下買機票的話價格會是多少。

  • On the other hand, if you know the dates you can travel but you don't know where you wanna go.

    另一方面,如果你已經確定旅遊時間卻尚未決定旅遊目的地。

  • Just put the dates in and Google flights will suggest some destinations.

    就在 Google 航班上輸入日期,它將會給你去哪裡玩比較划算的建議。

  • You can even filter your results based on the type of travel you wanna do, the number of stopovers, your price range, or the airline you wanna fly with.

    你也能夠以自己喜歡什麼航程、轉機次數、可以接受的價格範圍或是你喜歡的航空公司去選擇機票。

  • If you collect loyalty points, as you should.

    你也可以累積哩程點數喔!

  • Keep in mind that a lower price usually involves fare restrictions and connections, which means a longer travel time.

    要記得低價機票通常包含機票限制條款和轉機機制,這也表示需要更長的旅行時間。

  • If you're not in a rush to book, you can set up an email alert and Google flights will let you know if the price changes.

    如果你不是很急著要訂票的話,你可以在 Google 航班上設定 email 通知,追蹤每次的票價變化。

  • Once you found a price that you're okay with, Google can take you directly to the airline's website to complete the booking.

    當找到你覺得合適的機票後,Google 可以直接帶你到航空公司的網站進行購票。

  • There are some other great resources for tracking flights and finding flight deals.

    還有其他搜尋航班與訂購機票的網站。

  • Hopper is a really great mobile app that does a lot of the things that Google flights can do.

    Hopper 是一個很棒的手機 app,它的功能與 Google 航班類似。

  • It can track flights, offer predictions, and it has hotel bookings.

    它可以追蹤航班資訊且有票價估算與飯店預定的功能。

  • And there are a ton of websites out there that keep track of really cheap deals and mistake fares and I'll link to them in the description box below.

    還有很多的網站可以追蹤便宜機票與有 bug 的票價,我會把這些網站放在下方的資訊欄喔!

  • If you're in Canada, you need to follow nextdeparture.ca, they're posting tons of deals all the time.

    如果你住在加拿大,你就必須追蹤 nextdeparture.ca 這個網站,他們總是提供許多優惠票價。

  • Now, once you booked your flight, keep an eye on it for the next 24 hours.

    現在,當你訂購機票之後,在接下來的 24 小時內緊盯著它。

  • Most major airlines will allow you to cancel without any penalty 24 hours after you book a flight.

    大部分的主流航空公司允許你在 24 小時內無償取消訂票。

  • If the fare doesn't change in that time, my number one tip is to close your browser window and never check again.

    如果票價在那段期間內沒有變動的話,我的最佳建議是關掉視窗且不再查看。

  • The price might go down, it might go up.

    價格可能降低,也可能提高。

  • But after 24 hours, there's not much you can do, so I don't think it's worth knowing.

    但在 24 小時後,你就沒辦法再做什麼了,所以我覺得再查也是無濟於事。

  • So, those are just some tips for finding good flight deals.

    以上就是一些搜尋最佳機票組合的小撇步。

  • If you have any of your own, let us know in the comments below, and if there's anything you wanna learn in an upcoming class, let me know.

    如果你有自己的訂票小妙招的話,請在下面留言跟我們分享喔!那如果你在下堂課有想要學的東西,也請讓我知道喔!

  • I'll see ya next time.

    我們下次見啦!

  • A la prochaine!

    下次見囉!
