Are tickets really cheap? To make sure tickets are really cheap we search over 400 airlines and categorize them into an interactive layout.
Airlines sometimes change the pricing and availability for seats within the same plane or route.
We let you know when a specific price may have limited availability during the booking process. So you never 'nearly miss' a good deal.
We give you an overview of the lowest possible flight price options available across airlines.
Unlike many other booking engines all prices are per person and include taxes and fees. No surprises on the payment page.
You can compare pricing and available seats between airlines. Whether you prefer window or aisle seats or just want to sit with all of your family or friends together,
we give you the option to pick the right flight for you. Seat Maps reflect seats currently available for assignment.
During purchase, you will have an opportunity to select your desired seat for these flights.
During booking process we also show what percentage of the time the particular airline is on time.
We also limit the display of some flights due to ticketing constraints.
Flights which require paper tickets are not shown if a delivery method is not possible in the time before departure.
Tips For Booking Dirt Cheap Airline Tickets & Flights (One Way Or Round-trip):
Tip #1: Make your reservation as early as possible.
Try to book your flight 1 to 3 weeks in advance for domestic travel. For cheap international plane tickets make a booking at least 1 month in advance.
As a rule airline tickets booked early usually are cheaper.
Tip #2: Try flying on a weekday.
Flights departing on weekdays (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) usually are the cheapest. Fares are generally higher on Monday and Friday than on other weekdays.
Sometimes airline tickets are really cheap if you depart on Saturday.
In general airfares are costlier on a weekend except for last minute weekend getaway deals. The difference is usually $20 to $30 per direction.
A Tuesday to Sunday fare might be $20 higher than a Tuesday to Saturday, a Thursday to Sunday trip might cost $40 more.
Tip #3: Try to stay over a Saturday night at your destination.
Most discount plane tickets require that you stay over at least one Saturday night before your return flight. You can save upto 50%.
But a minimum stay is not always required especially in corridors such as BOS to IAD or SFO to LAX.
Tip #4: Avoid flying during public holidays.
Most airlines have black-out days around major holidays, but the day of the actual holiday (e.g. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, etc)
is commonly not a black-out day and seats are often available.
Flying on the day of a major holiday can sometimes be the best way to find dirt cheap airline tickets.
Tip #5: Sometimes an airport in the surrounding area can be a better option. You may get cheaper airplane tickets if you select the nearby airports.
Tip #6: Search for flights few days earlier or later from your travel date. Plus minus 1-3 days option is available for most US destinations
Tip #7: Frequent flyer programs may be better in the long run.
Register yourself with the frequent flyer program of any airline that you frequently fly.
It may be a better to fly with the same airline and collect frequent flier miles, than to base your criteria on the cheapest fare alone.
We give you the option to add your frequent flier number during booking process. While searching for airplane tickets you can also choose specific airlines.
We offer you the ability to specify your preferred times and airlines while still giving you the unbiased lowest price available.
