The price of airfare is going up, and that’s a good thing, says airfare expert Robert Denno, who runs an online airline guide and website.
Dennow says the average American will pay $150 to travel to Europe or the U.K. for a single round trip, and the average Chinese or Indian will pay around $250.

“For most travelers, the cheapest way to travel is to take a single international flight.
For some, it can be two, but it’s a much better option than getting a hotel room,” Dennomo said.
“I think there are some things that are really not that different from the way that the airlines used to operate, so there is still a good deal of value for travel.”
The United States and many other countries that allow citizens to travel without a passport and/or travel without tickets can take advantage of air travel deals to bring their families back home for vacation.
Some of the best deals for travelers include the $20 per person “cabin seat” from Southwest Airlines, which has a discount to U.S. travelers.
Denton says this offer is the same one that AirTran will offer to travelers in other countries.
“If you’re a U.G.N. or international traveler and you can make your way across the Atlantic, this is an option you can use,” he said.
Some of the cheapest airfare deals you can find are listed below.
But if you’re going to go, do it in the right way.
“The airlines have been using this discount on flights to make the travel more affordable, so it’s kind of like a bonus.
If you’re paying for a round trip ticket, you might want to look at other travel options,” Denton said.
For example, a round-trip ticket from New York to Paris for $400 is cheaper than a roundtrip ticket to London for $500.
Domeno said you can also look at travel options from other nations, including India and Mexico.
You might also want to consider paying a flight agent to get the best deal, which can be a lot of work and money.
Airfare deals that don’t require a flight to the destination can be good options for travelers who don’t want to be on their own, and they’re also a great option for people who can’t afford to pay for the ticket.
