In this article, I will be discussing with you how to do flight booking in Nigeria. Without much ado, however, below are the ways to follow while doing your flight booking in Nigeria.
To Do your Flight Booking:
1. Look For Your Flights in Advance
In most cases, 54 days is considered the perfect time before your trip. Suppose you want to book an international flight, you are advised to book in advance, most importantly, if where you are traveling to have only one nearby airport.
For instance, if your trip is to a popular place, perhaps during the festive period, like Florida, when spring break is observed, you are advised to book in advance, since the flight is popular, and the fare is likely to be lowered.
You Have To Check Airfare Deal Websites: Before you make your booking, you have to scan the airfare deal website.
This will be necessary and also helpful if the dates for your trip are flexible, for the purpose of taking advantage of any deals.
Airlines in most cases will share sales with customers via websites or newsletters. You may decide to subscribe for newsletters of these airlines or you may want to visit their sites for such deals.

2. You Will Enter Trip Details On Aggregator Site
You are expected to visit aggregator websites and search for any airline, for example, Skyscanner, or Momondo or GoogleFlights, and after the search, you are to enter your own trip information.
A lot of flight options will be displayed at the website for your desired destination and trip dates, where price, and airline and/or length of trip can be sorted for.
3. Choose Number Of Stops You Want To Make
Flights that are on the long destination will usually make some stopovers at few airports along the way. And in most cases, you may be changing airplanes and perhaps, being checked by security agents again.
So while booking the flight, consider the number of stopovers you are to make. The distant and time of the stopovers must be taken into consideration.
You can simply reduce your flight fare if only you can carefully and comfortably add up those number of stopovers.

Once your best trip is found, you can then select it on an aggregator site, as well as move straight to the airline’s website and then book your flight.
In some of the aggregators, you will be allowed access to book flights via their website, but the only issue can be that you may incur an additional service fee.
5. You Have To Choose Your Seat
A lot of airlines will allow you to make a choice of where you want to sit while booking your flight. If that is the case, you are advised to choose seats for every passenger you booked for, even if you want all of them to sit together, you can select the same.
You may want an aisle or a seat that has a window or you may want a middle seat, all you need is to select the seat, and you may also want to upgrade, for example, extra legroom, which will mean an additional cost.
6. Choose Whether Or Not A Package Deal
Once you are almost to the end of the process of booking, your preferred airline is likely to suggest add-ons which you can book, for example, hotels, car rentals, etc.
You are expected to add all these while bookings or you can even book for them separately. And please note, before you choose the add-on, you are expected to do some research and make sure that, the airline you are booking is offering you a good deal.

Suppose, during your booking process, you need a special accommodation on the flight, for example, a wheelchair, you are to make this request, while booking.
And suppose you are not permitted to make this request, while booking, you can simply call the airline directly. Some of the special accommodations available are the following; traveling with service animals, and medical concerns, as well as, dietary restrictions.
8. Choose Whether Or Not To Add Insurance
While in the process of booking, you may likely decide whether or not to add insurance. You are expected to study the process carefully and decide whether or not the flight needs insurance.
Insurance may cover your work, and your healthcare or even your credit card. So what is expected of you is to look into the options and then possibly, compare costs, should you desire to add insurance coverage.
9. You Should Book For Your Ticket
At the website of the airline, you are to confirm that, the information provided is correct. And after that, you are to follow the prompts and make sure that you enter personal and your payment information in order to complete booking your tickets. And note that, personal information of those traveling with you is also important.
10. Be Sure You Receive Your Confirmation And Receipt
