How to grab AirAsia FREE seats

*Take note: This is not a step-by-step tutorial on how to book an air ticket from AirAsia. Rather, this is a simple guide on how to grab the AirAsia FREE seats or any other related promotions!

From time to time, AirAsia will release promotions that'll excite everyone (most of us, typically Malaysians), which are the zero fares or free seats!

Here's an example of an ad regarding the promotion:


Imagine being able to go to your dream destinations at an attractive and extraordinary low fare, who wouldn't want? Who wouldn't like to book in advance to get lower fare if he needs flying for education or other purposes (students like me, KL - Miri)?

Assuming that you wanna go somewhere for vacation, here are some guidelines that you may know or missed:

(1) Know where you are going

Before you decide on anything, I personally think that deciding the destination is a crucial factor. By knowing where you will or want to be going, you will be able to set and allocate your budget accordingly at a later stage. If the place you'd like to visit is a hotspot, you gotta act fast (before the FREE seats are gone).

Example: I would like to fly to Kota Kinabalu!


(2) Know why you are going there

This may sounded funny, but by asking why, you can know the reasons and then plan your activities ahead. By answering why, indirectly, you may answer the question of "what are you gonna do there"!

Example: Why Kota Kinabalu? Because I would like to go for extreme hiking!

If your reasons do not match with the destination you've decided, then you might consider changing your destination! Like Sipadan for diving, or Penang for local delicacies, etc.


(3) Know who are going with

Whether you are going with your friends or family, the headcount is definitely another important factor to consider. Why? Because, FREE seats are usually limited for a particular flight!

Tips: If possible, try to avoid booking for more than 5 people in the same flight, as this may cause the price to vary. You can try to book for 10 people and compare the price of booking 2 persons on the same flight.


(4) Know when you are going

By knowing whom you are going with, subsequently, you must plan when you are going (no one like clashes). This will be tricky for most of us, may it be you're working or studying. Do check your timetable and calendar. Don't put too much hope in getting low fares during peak seasons like school or public holidays.

Example: You may set your date one week before or after school or public holidays, or perhaps on weekends for a short trip.


(5) Know how long will you be going

Whether you like it or not, the longer the period you spend for your vacation, the higher is the possibility of getting FREE seats for your return ticket. If you're lucky enough, you'll get the same rate for your return ticket if you plan to visit for 1 or 2 days. Or else, try to extend another day or 2. Again, this depends on your destination and budget allocation.
