Overheard conversation between co-passengers in the airport metro ->
Person 1: Hello, you seem to be heading out! Where to?
Person 2: Oh Hello! Yes, I am going on a vacation to France! My son and his family are joining me from the US!
Person 1: Wow! What a coincidence!! I am also traveling to France!! We must be on the same flight!!
They compared tickets and realized they were indeed taking the same plane!! They introduced themselves as Mr. Reddy and Mr. Kaul.
Mr. Reddy: Hey, if you don’t mind, is that the cost of your ticket?…. How is it possible that it cost you so less? …See how much I have paid!
Mr. Kaul (smugly): You must have paid for it using Air France’s (the airline) Indian website… I have been researching and booked the ticket from the airline’s local website in France. Big saving huh!
Mr. Reddy: Hey, that’s great! How did you pay in French money??
Mr. Kaul: The SMART way! I always buy a multicurrency travel card before heading abroad and use it wherever needed!
Mr. Reddy was totally impressed with his new found friend! He swore to keep this tip in mind for future and pass it to all his friends as well!
He has learned it the hard way after coughing up so much money… What about you??
Remember to check out the home country’s website of your airline, and compare the airfare with that offered on other websites. You may find a huge difference. So if you own a multicurrency prepaid travel card, you can be smart and SAVE BIG like Mr. Kaul!
The same story could apply to your hotel and local travel payments as well! So figure out the most cost-effective way for making payment abroad and play smart!
