    These are excellent tips on how to find cheap flights. I like the tips of signing up for price alerts – this has helped us on occasions to save fares. The other strategy about checking back 23 hours later is a good one. I have not tried that as yet, but will certainly keep it in mind.

    Doing research and comparison is indeed the key to get the best deals on airfare. The points made by you make immense sense and are the practical way to book air tickets. We usually try to fly in the months when the rush is less and hence flights work out cheaper. Also, it is imperative to search incognito when you are visiting the same site time and again.

    Great tips, Daniel. This is the first time I can easily understand information on how to find cheap flights. You do the math behind finding the cheap tickets for me. Thank you so much, and of course I have to pin this.

    I often books my tickets in an incognito window. Never knew it is just a myth. Well, I have many a times found Tuesday flights cheaper. It might not be the case every time but most of the times flights are cheaper mid week. Setting price alerts is a very good idea to track changes. Thanks for the wonderful tip.

      Well, perhaps I didn’t make it clear enough (I’ll make an edit). Incognito will help you if you already searched for a flight and accessed several websites because those websites are probably keeping cookies in your device. However, if you have a new device that hasn’t been used for flight searching before, there probably won’t be a difference between browsing normally and browsing incognito. I’m really glad to hear you could get some useful tips from this post and thank you for stopping by and commenting 🙂

    Very well written. Ticket booking is quite a task and yes, timing is the most important. The one thing that I find difficult to do is stay flexible with a destination. 😛 Incognito always works for me.

      Indeed, staying flexible always works but I think good research is even more important 🙂

    I have actually benefited from VPN and finding cheaper prices when searching from a different location / IP address many times so I can confirm it is not a myth. Also, I have tried to compare prices of flights during the week so I can confirm that Tuesday may NOT necessarily be the cheapest day to book a flight. I often put flight alerts just to see if these myths are correct or not, and to book my flight when the prices hit the lowest. I’ve also realised that if you’re travelling during the peak season, its best to book your tickets as early as possible, it is a myth that 3 months prior to the flight is the cheapest time to book a ticket!

      Hi Medha, I’m afraid you didn’t understand/read the article carefully. I never stated that VPN can’t help you find cheaper flights, only that there’s no magic formula for a specific location that brings to cheaper flights. Regarding your claim that booking three months before the flight is a myth, I didn’t make that up- it’s an official statistic. Of course, not everyone will get the cheapest flight when booking three months in advance before visiting during the high season, but IN AVERAGE, it is indeed the best time to book a flight 🙂

    Nicely done! These are like the best tips every. I personally use all of these myself and I book a lot of flights. I think it’s kind of fun to see what kind of prices I can find, I consider it a challenge.

    I have used these tricks for flight booking as it has helped me a lot. Recently I ended up booking a train ticket that was costlier than flight and I was really disappointed. These tricks some what also apply to hotel booking apps.

    I have heard about a few of the tips you’ve listed. But I loved the ones involving booking your own connecting flights and especially the 23-hour check back strategy. Total gamer changer!

        And using an Incognito window means that the airline companies should not be able to watch you and put up the prices when you don’t book first time round 🙂

    This is a very useful post as it has many tips for finding cheap flight deals. I too use Google Incognito mode for finding cheap flight details. 23-hour check back strategy is very helpful and I would love to check this. Thanks for sharing all the details.

    Great tips for finding cheap flights. I think it is crazy when airlines have a cheaper flight for two flights, than one direct flight to the stopover location of the two flights. I have thought about booking one of those, but I know some airlines won’t let you on the return flight if you didn’t complete all the legs of the first set of flights. Definitely something I want to learn more about and potentially save money by doing!

      Absolutely, Elizabeth- a lot of airlines do that. I tried to do it once on an Aeroflot flight but I was told I can’t board the flight because I didn’t complete all the legs of the first set of flights. It’s an interesting strategy but also one that needs to be practiced with a lot of caution 🙂
