Method to find cheap flights

When you find the international flight or domestic flight how you find or what you will use the get the flight ticket.

I guess it can be divide by 3 different group.

  1. Travel agency (such as HIS or any in each country)
  2. Direct from airline (such as American airline, Japan airline , Singapore airline and so on)
  3. OTA Online travel agency (such as Expedia, Trip. com, Kiwi and so on)

But this time my option is not include here so I will explain how to search the flight as for option No.4.

To find cheap flight tickets

The option no.4 is

  • Using flight scanner site which can scan all airlines, travel agency at once

You may need to spend more time to find but just a little time only. This time I will explain about “skyscanner” flights.

What is skyscanner

Skyscanner is the website which can book flight ticket, hotel, rent car all over the world from 1,200 webiste and can compare all the price.

How to use is almost same like what you do when you purchase the flight ticket.

The biggest benefit is from the result of search flight it shows all the price for all the supplier who sell the specific flight ticket.

Skyscanner shows the cheapest flight ticket easily for your vacation.

Of course everything is free so by using skyscanner you can find the cheap flights.

How to use skyscanner

I will explain 1 by 1.

If you just want to know the result please click below.

Result of skyscanner

Will explain how to use skyscanner by using screen shot.

Search skyscanner

At Google I believe it will come at the top.

Click skyscanner

When you click below page will be appear.

Search the flights will suit to your plan

Defualt is setting for best plan.

If you want to check the cheapest flight you just need to select cheapest only.

But you need to search from 795 result which will take time.

So now going to add condition to make more detail.

At left side you can see Outbound and Return departure time can change.

If you want to choose the specific airline or group you can also select that.

This time only change the departure time only.

The top DELTA airline is promotion so please ignore.

The cheapest price is 1,793 USD and 2nd cheapest flight is 1,802 USD.

But for this demo when select the Qatar airline option to choose travel agency was only one so this time I choosed Japan airline (JAL).

Select the cheapest flights which is suitable to your plan

When you press select and scroll down, below display will be appear.

By using JAL there are 5 option to choose but you can see that if purchase from BudgetAir the price is 2,004 USD but others such as Expedia or JAL website is 2,092 USD or 2,093 USD which is more higher price.

Since JAL is under Oneworld airline so if you have mile account such as Qatar or American airline or others you can also earn the miles.

Go to the flight ticket site which is matching to your plam

This time BudgetAir is matching so press the select button at the BudgetAir and move to BudgetAir website.

Once you key in the info and confirm the payment, then you flight tickets will be issue soon.

Benefit to use skyscanner 1

So let’s compare the price by using skyscanner.

  1. Travel agency (such as HIS or any in each country)
  2. Direct from airline (such as American airline, Japan airline , Singapore airline and so on)
  3. OTA Online travel agency (such as Expedia, Trip. com, Kiwi and so on)

Let say we compare the price between no.2 (JAL) and no.3 (Expedia).

  • When choose JAL                     2,093 USD
  • When choose Expedia                   2,092 USD
  • When choose BudgetAir via skyscanner 2,004 USD 

From the result you can understand that if used skyscanner were able to find 89 USD cheaper flight ticket which is quite big cost saving.

This time the booking number was only for 1 person but if for family the cost will become big. You can imagine how good to find it.

The person who normally used the travel agency or Expedia lovers or whatever just taking little bit time but you can get big benefit. Why don’t you try to use skyscanner once?

Benefit to use skyscanner 2

There is another benefit to use skyscanner.

This function is for the person who wants to find the more cheaper flights.

The function is price alret.

When you use the skyscanner you will see the button [get price alert] like inside the red square in the picture.

When you press that button setting to get the price alert will pop up.

Flights ticket price is fluctuate from time to time. Normally faster you book cheaper you can get but sometime you can find best flight deals.

Once you register and there are change at the price skyscanner will let you know.

It will be an advantage for those who pursue cheapness.

Summary

  • Skyscanner benefit 1 you can get the cheapest flight ticket
  • Skyscanner benefit 2 you can pursue the cheapness by using price alert
