Quick Tip: Saving Money on Adoption Travel

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on January 27, 2014

When you are matched with a birth mother, you’ll need to travel to her home state to adopt her baby. Here’s a great money-saving tip that you can use towards the costs of adoption travel.

Sign up for email alerts from multiple airlines, choosing a random destination. The airlines will email you about a low rate only available for a short period of time. Go ahead and purchase tickets at the cheap rate that they quote and make sure to purchase flight insurance. By also getting flight insurance, you are able to cancel your flight, but still have tickets to fly anywhere in the U.S. for six months at that cheap rate! This tip will help you avoid having to pay excessive prices for purchasing your plane tickets at the last minute.

Make sure that you read the fine print before purchasing tickets—not every airline will be able to make this offer. Also, some airlines cannot fly to every destination.
