The price of a flight is sometimes higher than the budget of one month of travel. Fortunately, you have some perfect website to help you to have the best prices
How can I get cheap flight
But first, I would like to write down the different tips I learned during my travels
- Avoid the weekends, the holidays, the public holidays. I like the function of Google flight; You can see the different prices in the calendar when you’re a selecting the departure and arrival dates
- Think to look at different cities for the arrivals and the departures. It’s possible to have a big price difference
- Don’t put a dead elephant in your bag. First, it’s bad! Second, the airline company charges a lot the extra weight
- Do you have a travel credit card? There is a great explanation from Matt Nomadic
- Use Momondo and Skyscanner to compare all the flights in the world and get the best price
Skyscanner compares millions of flights to find you the cheapest deal, fast. Whether you want to go to Cali or Bogota, they’ll find low-cost flights to get you there.
Theutilizationn of the website is free with no hidden charges and no added fees
It’s the main competitor of Skyscanner. They check the prices of thousands of airlines companies. They even won lots of awards as best flight comparison site. If you are using Skyscanner and Momondo, you’re sure to have the best deals!

Find cheap flights and airline tickets. Google Flights helps you compare and track airfares on hundreds of airlines to help you find the best flight deals.
They have a great function: Explore your destination. It allows you to find the cheapest city to travel from any airport
You have a great article from Johnny Jet on Forbs about 8 amazing tips Google flight!
Do you know that Airlines have complicated algorithms to calculate the price of your flight ticket? They take into consideration the date, how long before you’ve bought it, the percentage of occupation of the flight, etc. Hopper has analyzed the last 30 years of all flights to understand these algorithms. Thus, they are able to tell you at what date you should buy and at what price! You can use Hopper to look for the dates and then book with Momondo. Perfect combo!
As you know, sometimes the aggregators don’t find the cheapest flights. Indeed, they take into consideration the long layover but never the Stopover (More than 24 hours). And it can be a pain in the ass to find by yourself those unrealistic deals. There are two major advantages with a Stopover:
- Your flight tickets for your final destination can be cheaper
- You have a free stop somewhere in the world like New York, London, Paris…
Do you imagine? You pay less to get more!

FLIGHT RIGHT (European Union)
When you’re flying with a company, you’re paying to use a service. So you have some rights! Do you have a flight with more than 3 hours delay? A last-minute cancellation? Do you have to take another flight because of an overbooking?
Every time, you can ask for a compensation. The only problem? It’s complicated to deal with the airline companies. But now it’s over thanks to Flight Right! They’re taking care of everything for you. You just have to receive your money (less their commissions).
The best way to travel really cheap is to find airline mistake fares. Indeed, it’s possible that a human error or a computer glitch happen. Suddenly, a flight costs 40 $ instead of 400 $. We all dream about it every night and there is more chance to get one that to win the lottery ;). The Broke Backpacker wrote an excellent article about it.
Secret Flying is a website doing all the job for you. It can be interesting to have a look if you plan to go to Colombia. Who knows, maybe Christmas will come early.
Lovely travelers, some links in the article are affiliate links. There is no extra cost for you, and they can give me small commissions if you’re booking through my links. It’s helping me to keep the blog and all the information for free 🙂
All the tools have been personally tested by myself and approved by very close friends. I will do all my best never to disappoint you.
