How to find flights that work for your budget
Whether you’re a student or simply planning to jet off without breaking the bank, a cheap flight is a must-have. Check out our tips on how to find flights friendly to your tight student budget and start planning your next adventure today!
- Book in advance. If you’re sure when and where you want to travel, don’t postpone booking your tickets. Airlines tend to increase fares closer to the date of departure.
- Find out which day is the cheapest for jetting off. Anecdotally, Tuesday is the best day for booking your plane ticket. The flight comparison site Skyscanner says the cheapest fares are available if you fly on Sunday. But it’s always worth checking out the available options yourself as there are lots of factors.
- Search for flights incognito. There’s a suspicion that flight sites use your cookie data to track your interest and increase prices after they know you’re keen, although there’s little evidence for this. However, you can turn on incognito mode or private browsing in your browser to avoid even the risk of this.
- Be flexible! Sometimes it’s a much better bargain to travel from an airport in another city rather than your own. Broaden your options for departure and enjoy even cheaper flights.
- Take advantage of airline errors. Sometimes airlines make mistakes, which can lead to the release of very cheap flights even to very distant destinations.
