How to find cheap flights to anywhere in the world

How can I get a cheap flight? Follow these tips below and you’ll stack the odds in your favor! 

Start searching as early as possible

Airlines generally release tickets 11 whole months in advance. Once you know your destination start searching and continue to check at least once per week.

Know when to buy airline tickets

Peak season and holiday weekends will have the most demand, so expect higher prices. You can, however, stack the odds in your favor by buying at a certain time. 

Know what is the best DAY to fly

The consensus is that the cheapest days to FLY OUT are on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturdays. These are typical off-peak days with airlines carrying fewer business travelers, usually meaning lower fares and a surplus of seats.

Be flexible with your flight dates

Give yourself the best chance by searching a couple of days, or even weeks, either side of your preferred departure date. If you are locked into exact dates, it will be more challenging to get the best deal. 

Adjust the time of day for flying

If you can’t change the date of your flight, play around with the time of day you choose to fly, which can change the price of your air ticket dramatically.
