How to Buy Cheap Airline Tickets – Scrappy Travel pt. 1

I’m writing this article because I want you to know that traveling is both easier and cheaper than you think.

In 2010, I wrapped up school, and decided to take a trip to Italy to celebrate. The art, culture, faith, history, as well as my family connection to the country had me excited to go. This was the first time that I had ever traveled abroad, so I had no idea what to expect. I started doing the legwork to plan the trip, driven by a severe case of FOMO, but the focus was definitely on the fun side of things – what I would experience while I was there. Besides having never traveled abroad, I had spent very little time on airplanes. I knew they were expensive, but had no idea how expensive. So, when I did my very first search for tickets from SLC to Rome, and they popped up at $1600 a piece, I felt instantly crushed. “There’s NO way I can afford this…”

So, I started reading. I learned from several articles that the best prices for international flights are “on average” 4-5 months before your date of departure. I learned a little about round trip vs. 1 way tickets and multiple city itineraries. About how to hop around Europe in the air. And eventually I landed round-trip tickets that allowed me to do everything I wanted to do in Italy for $830.

Cotopaxi, Arizona, May 2014

Cotopaxi is an outdoor gear brand from Salt Lake City, Utah. Each piece of Cotopaxi gear is tied to a humanitarian cause in one of the poorest regions of the world. In an effort to be transparent, Cotopaxi makes very clear where the proceeds from each piece of gear sold go, as well as the effect that they have on the lives of the people there.

Cotopaxi gear was made available for purchase for the first time in May of 2014. At the end of April and beginning of May, we traveled to Arizona with Cotopaxi to shoot promotional photography for their launch.

To learn more and check out the gear, visit their website here: www.cotopaxi.com
