Even though it sometimes skips some lesser-known OTAs from its searches, Skyscanner still provides a fantastic jumping-off point when searching for incredible deals. It also has an app that is quite intuitive and easy to navigate.
This powerful search engine allows for tons of customization, including pricing, flexible dates, and the ability to enter multiple airport codes or entire regions in the “Where From” and “Where to” search boxes.
Flying during holidays, special events, and long weekends will be incredibly pricier than flying all other times. Departing very early in the morning or taking a red-eye flight is relatively cheaper compared to flying during the day.
If vacation time is not a concern, searching in Google Flights can help you identify alternative cheaper airports near your final destination. Instead of flying direct to your original intended city, you can opt to fly to these nearby airports to save some cash.
