How to find cheap flights?

Because of the high price of flight tickets, every traveller wants to find out how to fly cheap.
By knowing these tips you can save up to several hundred euros! So, how to find cheap flights?

  • More and more people prefer to travel by plane – many carriers offer air tickets at attractive prices, and the flight itself is cheaper and more comfortable compared to a car or train. How to find cheap flights to your chosen destination? It is worth starting your search for air tickets around 3 months before the actual travel date. That’s when the prices are at their lowest. The closer the date of departure, the higher the ticket price will be. This type of ticket sales policy is respected by both low-cost and regular carriers. A prior purchase of an air ticket is first and foremost recommended, if you are planning a weekend trip or travel somewhere around the holidays. Around these periods, the prices of air tickets may even rise several times.

  • Booking air tickets in advance will allow you to save some money, similarly as comparing the offer of a few different carriers. Low-cost carriers offer European flights at attractive prices, but it’s worth paying attention to the offers of regular airlines, as well as connecting flights. Sometimes, a phased journey turns out to be cheaper than a direct connection. How to compare flight offers? The eSky flight connection search engine comes in very useful here – use it to find cheap air tickets to your destination, and all this without the need to browse websites and offers of individual carriers. All flight propositions have been collected in one place.

  • Once you’ve found cheap air tickets and planned your dream trip, it’s time to buy the ticket. Most people browse the offers of carriers and book flights in the evening or at weekends. The large interest in the purchase of an air ticket at this time goes hand in hand with a cost increase – airlines are aware of the largest traffic on their websites and use that to increase their profit. When is it best to buy an air ticket? You can buy the cheapest air tickets in the middle of the week, especially in the mornings. If you are flexible in terms of the date, it is worth planning the flight itself during the week as well, early in the morning or late at night – flights during these hours are cheaper than at the weekends, in the evenings, or before noon. Last-minute flights are also a good solution.

Where to find cheap flights?

There are three most popular ways of searching for cheap flight tickets.

  • Searching for cheap flights in carriers’ systems every day can be time-consuming. The place where you can find cheap tickets for any flight is the air travel search application. Just install it on your phone to check the latest offers. After entering several travel criteria in the appropriate fields of the search engine, the system will search for air tickets best suited to your requirements. The more filters you set, the more precise search results you will get. The eSky flight search is free and user-friendly. You can also use it on a computer, laptop or tablet.

  • Cheap air tickets are the favourite topic for all travel enthusiasts, so it’s worth checking out all forums and thematic groups on social networks. The advice given by experienced travellers is invaluable, as are tips about the time and place of special deals for flights to places like Europe. Carriers do not always offer cyclical deals on tickets, which is why every piece of information about an expected promotion is worth your attention. In turn, if you are new with booking air tickets and are afraid of handling the order form, you can ask more experienced people for help using a forum or travel group.

  • Where can you find cheap air tickets? In your own. . . mailbox! Just sign up for the newsletter, set Google alerts for cheap flights for the selected destination or sign up for the eSky price alert. These solutions will allow you to receive notifications about air ticket availability, flight deals or contests for clients of a given airline. Signing up for the newsletter or alert is free, you can also opt out anytime. If you frequently travel with one airline, it is worth joining that carrier’s loyalty club – not only will you receive news about discounts for tickets faster, you will also collect bonus points/miles, exchanged for, among others, subsequent air tickets.

How to search for cheap flights?

To check flight tickets available for the selected dates on eSky, you should first determine some basic data.

  • The cheap flights search engine was created for people who value their time. It takes just a few steps to begin the process of searching for air tickets. Firstly, set the basic search criteria, such as the number and age of passengers, the date of travel and the place of departure and arrival. However, to make the booking of airline tickets faster, it is advisable to immediately define additional criteria and set filters on possible transfers, flight hours, departure and arrival airports, as well as the airline itself. The more travel criteria you give, the shorter the search list will be, but it will be perfectly matched to your requirements.

  • Each of the points on the list of searched connections contains basic data about the flight: cruise time, flight price, transfer information, etc. By clicking the ‘details’ icon, you can see the flight number, supporting line, as well as the availability of services such as on-board menus or checked baggage included in the ticket price (some cheap airline tickets offer a variety of amenities for passengers included in the price). Let’s not forget about checking the booking terms – this way you can check if the flight cost includes all airport charges, or if those will be added when making the reservation.

  • When searching for cheap flights, it is also worth paying attention to the travel date. Sometimes, the air ticket price is much cheaper 2 or 3 days earlier/later. If you are flexible in terms of the flight date, then the option to search for flights +/- 3 days before and after the set date may turn out to be helpful. It is also worth comparing the offers of direct flights with those that include transfers. A journey combined as a part of cruises of various carriers is often cheaper than a direct flight. The eSky flight search engine allows you to check the offer of flights of both low-cost airlines and regular carriers.

  • How to book cheap flights?

    Booking air tickets is a few-stage process. After using the eSky flight search engine and choosing a specific flight, click the ‘select’ icon. The next windows will display detailed information about the flight, travel insurance proposal (for an additional fee), a form with personal data to be completed, the possibility of choosing additional services (including online check-in), as well as the payment method.

After selecting the payment method and entering your payment card data, the last step of the order is clicking on the ‘book and pay’ icon, and then making the payment. During the process of purchasing the air ticket, it is worth checking the information entered – any corrections, if possible, may require an additional fee.
