More and more Britons are keen to save money on their travels and want to indulge in a quality holiday experience without breaking the bank.

Luckily, one travel expert has revealed a tip that could help travellers bag a premium seat for less.

Nicky Kelvin, Director of Content at The Points Guy UK, spoke to and explained that by considering indirect flight paths, not only can travellers find the best deals, they may also find themselves getting an upgrade for a reduced price.

“Weigh up whether a cash ticket or using your miles and points makes sense, but for cash tickets, Google flights is my go-to and I always look at different departure points around Europe for long haul flights to try and nab cheap flights, especially in premium classes,” he said.

“For example, if I want to fly to Bangkok, I will try departing from Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo.

“I sometimes find business class flights for a quarter of the price that you might see the equivalent flights with a London departure point.

“You just need to get to the relevant city (and maybe add in an extra weekend break) ahead of starting your long haul trip.”

While it may add on an additional day or two to the trip, the savings and the elevated flight experience could be worth it.

However, Mr Kelvin also has some other ways to save on the cost of flights.
