I have been booking flight tickets online for myself, family and friends since 2008 and have always loved it. There are people who are still concerned about transacting online. But, don't worry, it is super safe. Just make sure you follow what I suggest.

With that, lets go on with the process of booking air tickets online!

Booking flight tickets online

Each airline company has its own ticket booking website but I highly recommend that you don't book tickets directly with Airline website as they don't offer you discount. Instead I prefer and recommend booking flight tickets through websites like:

Out of the above, I prefer to book my flight tickets through Cleartrip. As it is more convenient and saves you some extra money. Down below I walk you through the entire process. I will create the account from scratch just to show you how it should be done.

If you already have created your account on one of the above websites you can skip the next part and go straight to the part where I show you how save money on flight booking online.

Create an account on flight booking website

To book an online flight ticket you need an account on any of the websites I suggest above. For this article lets take my favorite Cleartrip in consideration and follow these steps:

  • Go to
  • Find "Your Trips" section in top right corner and click on it
  • A small dialogue box will open, you will see "Register" click on that
  • A pop up box will open, enter your email address in the mentioned field and straight away click on continue
  • In next box, you will be asked to enter other details like Password, your full legal name, Gender, and Mobile Number. Additionally, if you have GST number, you can enter that as well by clicking in the check box below Mobile number

  • There are three options, One Way, Round Trip and Multi-City; you need to select the one that fits you. For example if you want to go to Delhi tomorrow and Comeback to your city a day after or later, you can choose Round Trip. Similarly, if you want to go Delhi and stay there for indefinite time choose One Way

  • In "From" field enter your City from where you want to board the flight

  • Upon clicking on Book, you will be taken to booking page
  • On the page you will see Standard Fare and EzCancel if you believe you may need to cancel your ticket always use EzCancel option otherwise go ahead with Standard Fare
  • Now, you can optionally go for Travel Insurance and Baggage Protection, this will add additional charge to your ticket price
  • Next option would be to add a coupon code if you have any and hit apply. You will get the instant discount if the coupon you enter worked
