What's your favorite place to find cheap flights? ✈️

There are so many sites out there, would be nice to have one that covered 90% of possible flights/combos without having 10 browser tabs open.

    Skyscanner

    Compares millions of flights to find you the cheapest deal

    I'm a big Skyscanner user, I love their "flexible" / "everywhere" option which makes it super easy to find super cheap flights to random places.

    Skyscanner compares list from various networks and help you get the cheapest one. Just like @benln said, it's super easy to use.

    I used to use Hipmunk but recently switched over to Google Flights. It's a lot cleaner and easier to browse.

    I use 3 services to find the cheap flights, Google flights is one of them. TBH if you want to find the absolute cheapest flight, you gotta do a little bit more work by comparing at least 3 diff sites.

    You set your trip dates, and it automatically tracks the prices of flights along with predictions as to when you should book. Doesn't include all airline companies, but definitely worth a close look for traveling cheap!

    if tracks down the best days to book tickets and tells us if that's the right window to book a ticket or it suggests to wait. Very good app powered by historic data

    Hipmunk

    Cheap flights, cheap hotels, and travel Search

    Ryan Hoover78Founder, Product Hunt · Written
    I've been a long-time Hipmunk fan, not just for the cute mascot. Enter your flight details and Hipmunk presents a calendar-like view of flights across numerous airlines, sorted by "agony" which is a combination of price + layovers + time of the day.

    Hipmunk is my go-to starting point for any flight research. Beyond sorting by agony, it has one of the better interfaces for figuring out optimal dates to adjust flexible travel schedules. E.g., I can move my departure one day in advance and save $300.

    Hipmunk has a far better interface for multi-day options, but Kayak sometimes has "hacker fares" that combine 2 different airlines' 1-ways into a better price, and these options don't show up on Hipmunk. So my default now is to use both!

    Kayak has an awesome interface that mixes actual usability with effectiveness. So many times on "deal sites" I find that it devolves into the same sad design, but Kayak has managed to escape it (for the most part) while easily surfacing the best deals on flights.

    I always use Kayak. I find its interface the best and it consistently unearths tickets or routes that other services just don't.

  6. This one combines low cost airlines. I think it is the best to really find out the cheapest flights. The bad side is they have a high percentage fee for booking through them.

    SkipLagged

    A cool twist on buying plane tickets

    Ram RayavarapuFounder @collegestash.info, founderbooks · Written
    SkipLagged helps find the cheapest flights even if its the layover destination. The twist is you do not board the connection flight at the layover. The only drawback with this approach is you cannot take Check-In baggage as it drops the bag at the final destination.

    Surprised no one has mentioned Skiplagged, personally find it's better than Skyscanner but hey to each his own!

    Dan FennessyFounder at Party with a Local · Written
    Hitlist is great because you don't even need to search for flights - you just let it know where you're interested in going & they send you the best options as they come up. Amazing deals sometimes! Especially if you are a bit flexible on dates.

      I fly a lot, but I'm not rich. Why is it so difficult to find cheap flights and why does it seem like airlines don't apply any logic to their fares at all? Hitlist has already saved me many hours of checking airfares online. I get notified whenever an interesting fare comes up for a destination that's on my wishlist. Hitlist works better for me than Hopper.

    Scott's Cheap Flights is a newsletter that will send you emails when they have found great deals on flights for specified locations. They don't spam you and don't even send emails every week - only when a great deal has been found - so it won't clog up your inbox. Not the best way to search for flights for a planned trip but is a great way to discover awesome deals for a more spontaneous getaway that feels like a complete steal.

    Ryan Hoover78Founder, Product Hunt · Written
    AirWander is a different kind of flight search engine for those that don't mind overnight layovers. It's ideal for longer distance travel where you might find two one-way flights on different days that are cheaper than a single direct flight.

    Pana makes the actual traveling part of travel seamless, but if you upgrade to their paid version of the platform, you get access to Pana Concierge which takes care of all the booking / scheduling nonsense for you. This effectively eliminates the need for spending time sifting through travel / deal sites altogether 💁

    lola

    Instant access to a personal travel service.

    Kunal Bhatia50Co-founder & Design Lead @SlidesUp · Written
    Quite impressed with lola's ability to provide travel recommendations. It uses both AI and human travel agents to provide flights, hotels, and other travel services. My brother recently travelled to China and Japan with a complex itinerary/requirements. For a first experience, he saved so much time booking through lola. If you value your time, I'd check it out. Flight bookings cost a flat fee, but everything else is free. The experience gets even better starting your second booking!

    Different take on finding cheap flights (and UK only for now). He will email you when a flight to a certain destination has a cheap rate going. If it's something you're interested in, and have the dates available for a holiday it will save you hundreds of pounds.

    My starting point for flight search because it loads the quickest. All possible fares displayed in a clean, very user-friendly interface. The filters make sense. In short, if I know where am going, I use wego. Else, I use skyscanner and kiwi flexible feature to help me decide.
