This Mom’s Thrifty Hack Could Save Travelers A Wedge Of Cash On Plane Tickets

If you’re a frequent long-haul flyer, you’ll certainly be aware of just how costly those trips can be. But should you be looking to save a bit of cash, a blogger named Adele Barbaro might have a solution. In fact, after sharing her discovery on social media in August 2019, the hack quickly went viral.

While it might not be everyone’s favorite form of travel, airplanes are invaluable if we want to see different parts of the world. Unsurprisingly, that can put a strain on our collective wallets, especially when it comes to the longer journeys. To give you a better idea of the costs, here’s an example.

For instance, if you were traveling from Los Angeles, California, to Sydney, Australia, the round-trip ticket could be pretty expensive. Indeed, with American Airlines in March 2020, a premium economy seat would cost you over $2,600. And as for a spot in business class, that’s priced at more than $6,300.

Of course, the prices do vary from airline to airline, but it can still leave a dent in your finances. However, as we mentioned earlier, Barbaro shared a tip that might save you a significant amount of money. According to the blogger, families could be the big benefactors of this particular hack.

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Barbaro and her husband Paul are the proud parents of two young children named Chloe and Harvey. Barbaro went on to create her blog a few months after the latter was born, calling it “The Real Mumma.” Prior to starting her family, though, the mother had been a keen traveler.
