Is it cheaper/better to buy India airline tickets online in U.S. or wait until in India?
Packaged tours/deals are cheaper but lack flexibility. If u prefer flexibility, you can buy individual tickets but u need to do lot of planning or go through an agent.
You can get many good deals for domestic flights in India by surfing the web. For example: you can save Rs. 350 on one way and Rs.700 on two way if you fly Spicejet, Go Air, Indigo or Kingfisher Airlines by using discount coupons available at UPto75.com.
