Flights are expensive, heres how to find cheap ones

Flights can be so expensive for many reasons. You’re travelling at peak times, not being flexible and many other reasons. There are some things you can do to try cut the costs of flights.

how to find cheap flights  Private Browsing

Prices of flights can change from time to time. Maybe if you’ve been looking at these flights multiple times. This is due to the cookies on your browser. When searching, always go into incognito or private browsing to see the cheapest options.

Use flight search engines

Rather than looking at certain flight companies use flight search engines such as skyscanner or kayak to help search for the cheapest flights as it will look through all different airlines.

Be Flexible

Flights change depending on different days and locations. Can go on a different  day? Check all possible days. Theres another airport close enough by? Check there too. You’ll be surprised how much difference there can really be from going one day to another or another airport not far away.

Longer layovers

If you are taking a long haul flight consider taking two separate flights. Also when booking layovers do not have the flights only a couple hours apart. Try a couple of days. Then not only may you get cheaper flights, you get to visit an extra destination too!

Airline error fares

Unfortunately these are rare and don’t come around often but when they do they’re great! it could take hours to potentially find one maybe none. The best site that I have found to show error fares is Holiday Pirates.

Off Season

If you aren’t too bothered about what time of year you go. Then going off season could be a good choice. Not only because flights are likely to be cheaper but also the places you visit are also likely to be quieter.
