How to economize
How can you save when buying tickets? The cost of tickets depends on demand, hence it depends on the season. For instance, in the beginning of summer tickets to Bulgaria become more expensive, and those from Bulgaria to other countries start dropping in prices. In the end of August and September, the situation is the opposite: you can fly to Bulgaria for cheap rates, and tickets from Bulgaria will cost quite a lot. In the middle of the high season, return tickets are the most reasonable option.
When looking for tickets, it is better not to limit yourself to one date, and look at the rates for several other days as well. Sometimes the difference in prices can reach 40%.
It may prove sensible to look at the ticket prices to different cities. Of course, it is less convenient to get to Golden Sands from Burgas and not from Varna, but the low prices you may find will compensate for the inconvenience.
It is entirely feasible to buy plane tickets to Bulgaria at unbelievably low rates, for example, for several dozen Euro, but when you come across such offers, be careful to read the accompanying conditions. Frequently air carriers can change departure time (that concerns most charter flights), including for a longer term.
Another problem can arise when the air carrier changes the destination at the last moment. Furthermore, there can be different limitations: frequently you cannot exchange or return such tickets. Be sure to take all these factors into account. Yet buying budget plane tickets is worth the efforts: it will do no harm to look for large savings at the expense of comfort.
