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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
