How to Fly BUDGET AIRLINES | Travel South East Asia CHEAP in 2019

#bluehost — Unscrupulous and Deceitful people. Tried to bill my credit card for a service I did not subscribe to, without my authorization, and without my knowledge. Threatened to interrupt my web-based business. Billing department is unfriendly. Intolerable behaviour from a service provider. Moving my domain today. Recommend that potential customers be highly suspicious of #bluehost.

    I have actually never been to South East Asia, so I've never flown with any carrier. But regarding food/drinks: I heard the carrier Scoot has a very strict no food/no drink policy on board except you buy it from them. So you're not able to bring anything along with you.
    But the rest of it sounds pretty much like any European low budget carrier. By the way, my best deal: 19,98€ roundtrip Pisa-Malta earlier this year

    Great tips and advice. I did NOT know about the Incognito browser thing. 7:03 – I Only carry a 20L Backpack and maybe a small pouch for id and passport/ticket this is Very important Information Thank You. There is a good chance I will be flying smaller Asian airlines soon. You can " buy" Hot water right ? I like those 3 in one coffee packs etc. On this one it is klm to Amsterdam then on to Bangkok then maybe just Ferry or speed boat to a few close Islands after the " Business " part of this jaunt.

    – Thanks !

    Such a great idea to get someone to hold your bag while you check in!! Another tip is that you can often put a bag in left luggage storage in the airport for a short time while checking in 😁

    Good tips! budget airlines in north america definitely add on those extra charges too. I was once charged just to bring my one carry-on bag, which is usually free on mainstream airlines -_- Sometimes the cost is still cheaper than a mainstream airline, and sometimes it's not so I always try to compare prices.

    I have flown all over SEAsia with Air Asia and have enjoyed my experiences! Always young …friendly crews. It was madness … years ago …when they didn't have assigned seats!!! Can you imagine the stampede of people at the gate running down the gangway toward the plane…. all wanting those coveted front seats ? Yup. 🙂 I had Air Asia weigh my carry-on at the gate several times. I was always overweight!! Secret is… look like you are carrying a " really" light bag when you approach the gate 🙂 Lol Best fare ever with Air Asia? Hanoi to KL for $14.00 US !!! And yes… buying their meals in advance are great. What a relief to see that trolley coming with your food!!! Lol

    When you’re in Southeast Asia, how do you print your boarding pass before you go to the airport? It’s often so difficult to find a place to print in Southeast Asia.
