How to find a cheap flight ticket?

Nowadays, airline tickets are not unreachable. A flight to Spain or Italy can cost as much as dinner at a restaurant. Our latest article "How to find a cheap flight ticket?" was so popular that we decided to expand the list of tips. In the end, we are still traveling, we are still looking for flights and we come up with new ideas!

When to book? Use ready price analysis

Knowing when to book flights is the key to finding the best price and thus to be able to fly for less. That's why Skyscanner's search engines analyze data to find out when the best time to buy flights is. Take a quarter to search the Internet, it's worth it.

For example:

  • The best time to buy a flight from Barcelona to Amsterdam is 10 weeks in advance.
  • If you want to book a cheap flight from Barcelona to London, it is best to do it 7 weeks before departure.
  • Flights from Barcelona to Paris are best booked 14 weeks before departure.
  • If you want to fly from Madrid to Bangkok, the best time to book tickets is 24 weeks before the flight.
  • The best time to book a flight from Madrid to New York is 8 weeks in advance.
  • You will find the cheapest flights in Madrid 16 weeks before the departure date.
A VPN helps you find cheap flights.

Try a VPN

What is a VPN? This is a virtual public network, a service that allows you to change the location of your device. It often happens that the prices of air tickets change depending on where you log in to the Internet. Thanks to the VPN, you can change your virtual location to Paris and check Air France flights available in France.

Cut the additional fees

Pack wisely, you'll save valuable space in your suitcase and you won't have to send a suitcase. Shampoo, shower gel and toothpaste - especially if you are going for a long time - can be bought on site. Take two or three outfits that you can then adjust, pick up your jacket.

The most important are items that are hard to buy in an emergency - glasses, contact lenses, medicines. Of course, wallet and documents. Check the weather forecast. If they announce 20 degrees, really, one sweater is enough. In the event of a sudden change in weather, especially if you are going to the city, you can always look into the store - in this way you will have an additional souvenir from the trip. All this will allow us to give up additional fees, and thus, save on an air ticket.

Cheap flight tickets

Is window seat an absolute necessity?

Also, consider whether a seat on a plane for a two-hour flight really is that important? Most passengers have their preferences, some prefer to sit by the window, others by the aisle. Nobody suffers from seats between other passengers.

Maybe it is worth saving on it? Take a good book and focus on something pleasant. After arriving for the money saved, you can buy yourself something good to eat.

Eating on the plane

Of course, you cannot bring liquids over 100 ml to the airport, which is why it is difficult to get around buying very expensive bottled water. Some airports offer free filtered water, and better airlines give passengers drinks on board. Not always. For sure, you can bypass the need to buy very expensive meals.

Are you flying cheap airlines? Order only drinks and get your food. Prepare tasty sandwiches or wraps at home and wrap in aesthetic foil. Eating on the plane is not the tastiest anyway, and it's terribly expensive. However, be forgiving about the environment - maybe give up onions and garlic. Many fellow passengers will certainly envy you a delicious homemade salad.


These are just a few more tips on how to find cheap airline tickets. If I come up with any new ones, I will try to describe them in the next article, of course. By the way, I also invite you to read my first article on "how to look for cheap air tickets", where I described in detail other methods of saving money why traveling.

Nie trzeba wydawać mnóstwa pieniędzy, żeby zwiedzać świat. Polecam mocno podróże low costowe, podczas których nie oszczędza się na wrażeniach, jedzeniu i atrakcjach :)

    Google s ITA Matrix is simply Google s software for search flights, pretty nice right? The only downside is you cannot book tickets through them. But don t let that put you off keep reading to see how it can save you money.

    This is because as soon as you miss your first connecting flight, the airline will automatically cancel the rest of your ticket s reservations. In most cases, you would need to do this anyway, as when you return home, you ll be departing from a different city than the one you were originally ticketed for.

    Skyscanner for the very cheapest time to fly.  Skyscanner gives you fare options spread over a month to find exactly when s cheapest. It has particularly strong coverage of budget flights, searching over 1,000 airlines in total. Pretty impressive right?
