Tips on Finding Cheap Flights to Guangzhou
2. Round-trip tickets usually enjoy higher discounts than one-way tickets.
3. Passengers with limited travel budgets can book the tickets from low cost airlines. However, it is better to pay special attention to the luggage allowance of the air tickets from low cost airlines, because the allowance is often less than average, and the extra charge of the excess luggage is very expensive.
4. The ticket fare for international flight to nearby Hong Kong Airport is generally lower than that to Guangzhou Airport. So passengers can fly to Hong Kong first, and then take a coach or ferry from Hong Kong Airport to reach Guangzhou.
