The only thing sweeter than finding a good deal on airfare is the possibility of it becoming an even better deal by saving you more money. If you’re flying on an international carrier or traveling to a destination abroad, there’s a chance you could be able to score a better deal by booking on the foreign version of the airline’s website. For example, low-cost carrier Norwegian Air is known for its low fares, but on several of its international routes, we’ve been able to score up to 30% in additional savings by selecting “Norge” as the language. Of course, there’s no guarantee, so it’s best to check on a case-by-case basis with all airlines.
Yes, you may have to copy and paste everything into Google Translate, or have Google automatically translate the page, but the savings could make it worth the added step.
