In the USA, I’ve visited almost every state, including Hawaii and Alaska.  Moreover, I’ve traveled to over 120 different countries.  To enable me to travel so much I must rely on cheap flights.  As a matter of fact, I once flew round trip from San Francisco to Honolulu, Hawaii for £98.  The cost of the flight should be a minor part of my travel budget.  As a result, I have more money to spend at the destination.  But, how do I find these cheap flights?  Here are a few search tips;

Be Flexible in Your Search

Firstly, there are several ways to be flexible, it’s not only about the dates.  As well as being flexible with your dates you should also be flexible with your airport.  Each country has several airports therefore you can save hundreds of pounds by flying to a nearby airport.  If you perform your flight search with Momondo they will tell you how much you can save by choosing a nearby airport and also by traveling on a different date.

How to Find Secret Deals

Ridiculously cheap flights are written about all the time.  However, to actually see and book one for yourself is another story.  That’s because these “wow” fares are often kept secret.  I promise though, they do exist.  For example, someone may have said, “I found a cheap round trip flight from London to New York for £84”.  You’ve searched for hours but not found anything close.  One successful method to find a “wow” fare is simply sign up to Momondo deals and they’ll email low price flights which may be of interest to you.  My advice to you is that as soon as you see a “wow” fare, book it immediately.  These low prices should be snatched up straight away before they’re gone!

Multi Trip Options

A vacation to the West Coast is something we all must experience in our lifetime.  But with the complexity of multiple stops, organizing such a trip can be difficult.  How would you go about organizing such a trip?  My advice on this would be to use the multi trip function on Momondo.  Again with a little flexibility you can experience a multi trip vacation at minimal cost.  As a matter of fact, they show the prices in a nice bar chart for you to choose the best dates.  Here are a few destinations I visited on a recent multi trip West Coast vacation.
