How to Save Money when Buying Plane Tickets

There are several ways how you can save money when traveling on airplanes, says businessman Josh Jambon.

The first one is to buy your tickets well in advance. A 2012 study from the Airlines Reporting Corporation revealed that travelers who buy their airline tickets six weeks in advance save the most compared to other passengers.

Airlines release the most tickets on Tuesdays at 3:00 pm Eastern Time. This is usually the best time to buy your ticket, though days and times of the best deals can vary significantly.large (1)

The cheapest days to fly are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. The reason for it is simple: these are the days with little demand. Business travelers usually fly out on Sundays or Mondays and fly in on Thursdays or Fridays. Weekend getaway travelers fly out on Fridays and come back on Sundays. These are the days with the highest demand and more expensive prices compared to midweek days.

If you are thinking about flying a low-cost airline, check its website separately. Aggregation websites such as Expedia, Kayak and TripAdvisor don’t always include airlines such as Southwest or Spirit. If you decide to buy a ticket from a low-cost airline, you need to be very careful and attentive. Sometimes these airlines charge even for the carry-on baggage. Make sure you read the small print and calculate all the fees beforehand. Otherwise, your expenses may be even higher than when you fly with a regular airline.636041839680841086-GTY-159184364

A flight with a layover can save you over fifty percent of the ticket price. Finally, flying into a larger airport is usually also less expensive compared to traveling from and to small local airports. This happens because airlines often have hubs in large airports and flying from those airports is cheaper for them and for you, shares Josh Jambon.

Josh Jambon: An Introduction to Sparking Wines

Josh Jambon is the founder of Jambon Boats and a well-known businessman who appreciates fine wine.

Sparkling wines contain carbon dioxide bubbles. The gas naturally appears in the wine during the process of fermentation and sometimes winemakers choose to keep it in the wine. Almost every country that makes regular wines also makes sparkling wines.

Sparkling wine is the official name for wines with bubbles in the United States, Europe, and Canada.

The most famous sparkling wine is without a doubt Champagne. It is probably the most famous wine overall, too. Champagne is a certain type of sparkling wine that comes from a region in France that bears the same name, Champagne.

The fame of the name led to its theft by many winemakers from all over the world. This is why in the minds of many people the word Champagne is synonymous with the entire category of sparkling wines.

Winemakers from the United States could legally name any sparkling wine champagne until very recently. Even today they can use the name if they have been doing it in the past. However, most respectable winemakers from the US won’t use the word out of support for their French colleagues. This is why when you see a wine that says “Champagne” on the label but doesn’t come from France, know that there is nothing to be impressed about.

Europeans are much stricter in this area. Not only does the European Union forbid using the word champagne in the names of sparkling wines from outside of France, it also doesn’t allow winemakers to use the word as a supplement. For example, they can’t use the words “Champagne method.” Wine from outside of the European Union that has the word champagne on the label is banned from sale in the E.U., says Josh Jambon.

Josh Jambon: An Introduction to White Wines

Josh Jambon is a skilled businessman who enjoys scotch and wine.

White wine is a wine that doesn’t have any red color. It isn’t really white, but yellow. Sometimes it’s hardly yellow and sometimes it’s a bright full yellow.

There are two ways for a wine to become white.

First, a white wine can be made out of white grapes. Just like wines, white grapes aren’t really white. The name includes all the colors that are not red, from green yellow to pink yellow.

The second way is making white wine from red grapes excluding the skins. The juice that comes from red grapes does not contain any red pigmentation, only the skins of red grapes do. This is why removing the skins allows for making of white wine.

White wines go well together with lighter foods such as chicken, fruits, vegetables and fish. White wines are also widely considered to be aperitif wines.

Aperitif is a French word that comes from a Latin verb “to open.” Today the word is used to describe alcoholic drinks that are served before a meal.

Many people prefer white wines to red wines in the hot weather because white wines are more refreshing.

There are four taste categories of white wines, excluding sparkling whites and really sweet white wines.

The first category consists of fresh, unoaked wines. These wines are not sweet, have no oaky flavor, and are light and crisp. Most Italian and French white wines belong to this category.

Earthy wines are dry, have light oaky character and a fuller body. This taste profile mostly belongs to certain French wines.

Aromatic wines have intense flavors and aromas. They include many German wines such as Riesling or Viognier.

Rich wines have full bodies and are dry. Most Chardonnays and wines from Burgundy belong to this group, notes Josh Jambon.
