Does anyone know how to get cheap air line ticket?

I heard there are so many tricks to get cheap airline tickets.

For example
1. try buying it on Tuesday,
2. clear cache before use ticket service agent ( kayak, expedia etc..)
3. check if one-way is cheaper than round ticket , because depends on the company policy, some airline company has cheaper one-way tickets ( going& returning) than one round tickets.
4 .purchase ~3 months prior to depart
5. Use mileages or points to buy ticket. Such as , credit card sign up bonus etc.
6. Sometimes, clearance / target offer is available for certain destination ( sky scanner etc..)
7. Even if you are planning for multi-city-trips( or multi country) try buy one round ticket with long trip days , and try return to first destination to return your home because round tickets are almost always cheaper than one way tickets

etc...

I am trying to go turkey and russia in this winter, and trying get 1 round ticket from 2019 September to 2020 march. Still not sure how I can put all of these info to make best deal.

This is more like question for booking smart ticket than requesting a deal,

but i really need help to make best deal!

Any help would be truly appreciated !

Thanks!

get a travel agent to call the airline to negotiate a better deal than advertised. You will get a better deal, but don't expect a huge reduction.

This is one of the best kept secrets of getting cheap flights. If you're looking to go to Russia and Turkey, go to the Russian or Turkish ethnic enclave in your city and find the little hole-in-the-wall travel agent. These agents specialize in cheap flights home for the local ethnic community, and sell so many tickets that airlines give them blocks of tickets at a discount. These agents can get you better prices than anything you can find online. Agents like this can be very hard to find but can be worth their weight in gold.

I went with a negotiated deal from an agent. Prior to this, a person from ASAPtickets (or whatever the name) was assisting me with their best deal. After I told them I went with a better deal with an agent already, they said "oh, you should have let us know, we can also negotiate with the airline". ASAPtickets should have given me their negotiated deal as their best deal in the first place lol.
