Guide on finding Hidden City Ticketing

Hidden City Ticketing

This hack is one of the oldest secrets used by travel agents. It involves finding a cheaper flight by getting off at the connecting airport, instead of the actual destination. If you want to fly from city A to city B, in some instances, it is cheaper to buy a ticket from city A to city C, with a connecting stop at city B. A person would then just walk out in city B, without continuing their flight.

Airlines hate when people are using this hack. Therefore, one must take precautions. First, it is obvious that you cannot checkin your luggage, as it will actually travel to a city C (final destination of the ticket). Secondly, one must buy a one-way ticket, because the airline will cancel the return ticket of the round-trip.
