Jetting off on holiday is something that we all wish we could do more often, but many of us feel we can’t justify the cost. But finding cheap flights can mean the difference between a couple of breaks per year and none, and if you know how, you really can grab yourself a bargain. 


Read on to discover some of our top tips for finding those cheap seats and fitting in more holidays.
Use price comparison sites One of the best ways to save yourself a bit of time searching is to use price comparison sites such as Momondo, Skyscanner and Kayak which will check prices across different airlines for you. Comparison sites are a great place to start your search, and it is also worth trying a couple of different sites, as they sometimes get different deals. 

You can often sign up for price updates with them too, to keep an eye on fluctuating prices, and this is worth doing if you want to get an idea of the best times to visit your favourite destinations to save money.
One of the best features of these sites is that they all allow you to be very flexible with your searches, which is the perfect way to grab a great deal if you’re not fussy about where you go or when you travel.

For example, on Skyscanner, you can enter your airport of departure, and set your destination to ‘anywhere’. From there you can search ‘entire month’ and ‘cheapest month’ to take a look at where is the cheapest places to jet off to are.

Sign up for newsletters
Another great way to find cheap flights is to sign up for the email newsletters of a couple of airlines. None of us enjoy having our inboxes clogged up, but if you’re on the hunt for a holiday they can help you avoid missing out on things such as fare reductions and sales.

Use an agent
Often the very cheapest flights are at unsociable hours, or on days that may not be convenient for you, particularly if you have a family to think about too. Trawling through the rest yourself can be a real pain, so it can be much more convenient to book through an agent such as Globehunters who can do all of the work for you.

The best thing is that you can speak to somebody on the phone if you’d like to, although you can of course just book online. They can also help you with things such as hotels and car hire at the other end!

Fly budget
While it may not be the most glamorous way to travel, budget airlines do exactly what they say on the tin and offer much cheaper flights with a few less creature comforts.

Some people refuse to fly budget, and some people almost exclusively do so, but if it is something that you have never tried then it’s definitely worth trying, as you can save a great deal of money. Besides which, many budget routes are relatively short, which tends to make them perfectly bearable.

We hope this has given you a better idea of how to go about getting cheap flights the next time you’re looking for a bargain for you or your family!
