Have you ever wondered how people continue to score insanely cheap flights all around the world? Well, wonder no more! My personal victories are all won by using a combination of Google Flights and Momondo. Between these two search engines you're definitely going to get the best deal possible!!
You'll notice that where one search engine is weak, the other is strong therefore complementing each other perfectly!
Google Flights Is Best at finding availability & it's super-fast
-Not so good at finding the cheapest price or mistake fares (For mistake fares subscribe to Airfare Watchdog, Secret Flying, or Scott's Cheap Flights)
-Not so good at finding the best availability & it's really very slow.
Search the web privately in Incognito mode (Press Ctrl + Shift + n)
Helpful Hint: You can put in up to five airports in each box. Just make sure to separate each airport code with a comma. Some city codes incorporate three airports in one. For example NYC encompasses JFK, LGA, EWR and Washington (WAS) encompasses DCA, IAD, and BWI.
Step 2) Select your dates.
Once you click on the departure date, you will notice that flight prices will start to pop up under each day. The cheapest fares will be listed in green.
Scroll through the months and select whatever works best for you.
When is the best time to book? Well, sadly there is no exact answer and while everyone has their own theory, here's mine: 6-7 weeks out between Tuesday morning - Thursday at 8 am
Step 3) Select your departure flight.
Here Google will list out a bunch of different airline options.
For this example we're going to select our outbound flight with American Airlines for $637
Step 4) Select your return flight.
For this example, we're going to select our return flight with American Airlines for $637.
If you'd like to see more details such as flight number, etc you can click on the down arrow and it'll breakdown each flight for you.
On the bottom you can click 'Select' and it will take you directly to the American Airlines website.
Now switch over to Momondo
Like I mentioned above it's slow, so it might take over a minute to search.
You’ll notice that theref are thousands of results. This is why the sites takes so long to provide results.
