1. Keep your searches top secret

You’re not crazy for thinking that a flight price has changed after searching it a few times in your web browser. Based on the cookies in your browser, flight prices do increase when a particular route is repeatedly searched, as the site wants to scare you into booking the flight quickly before prices get even higher. Always search for flights in incognito or private browsing mode to see the lowest prices.

2. Use the best flight search engines

All search engines have inflated flight costs as part of taking a cut from the airlines. Some search engines (e.g. Expedia) consistently inflate much higher than others (listed below). It pays to familiarise yourself with sites that offer the best prices.

No single search engine is consistently perfect (though we find from our experience Pelikan.cz to be the best). This browser also allows you to search within a range of 3 days, to find the best option for you, which in our contracts is still acceptable (+- 2 days). You can also change currencies and language in the web interface.

3. If you know when and where you’re going, don’t wait to book

Rarely ever do airline tickets get cheaper as your departure date approaches, especially if you need to fly on a certain date. Budget airlines typically offer low rates as a baseline price, and as these tickets sell, the remaining ones increase in cost. If you know when and where you’re going, don’t wait on an unknown sale. More often than not, your biggest savings come from booking far ahead when you can.

4. Buy flights in bulk

As a general rule, you will get better value on your flight tickets if you buy more at the same time, but only if they are with the same airline (e.g. Ryanair). For example, if there is two of you flying, buy your tickets at the same time!
