Welcome to the Missionary Airfare section of the Missionary Resource Center. This section is designed to help you learn more about air travel, and in particular, finding cheap / discount tickets and great deals as you travel.

As a missionary myself, I travel quite frequently, and I'm always keeping an eye out to see what the airlines are doing with fares and schedules. In this section of the site, we'll take a look at a number of online resources for purchasing cheap tickets, as well as websites that can enhance your travel experience. Some of the sites listed are great for finding consolidator fares or student discounts; others, like Seat Guru specialize in a niche area. Seat Guru is a neat site that tells you everything you could want to know about each seat on the airplane. I often use this on long international flights to be sure I don't end up next to the lavatory.

There aren't many books or videos that would be appropriate for the airfare section, so this one will be mostly link and resource heavy. Please feel free to add your favorite travel agent or discounter to the list; just be sure to give us a helpful description. Also, keep an eye on the articles section and discussion forums, as we'll cover some of the harder to find areas of airfare information such as national airlines, chartering flights, and mastering the art of multi-leg trips.

Got a tip or trick for getting great deals for individuals or teams? Please share it with us in the discussion forum. God bless, and Bon voyage!
