The BEST websites to find cheap flights

Which websites to find the best deal for flight fare? In this article, we list our favorite sites to travel the world on a budget.

website to find cheap flights


1. Skyscanner

I guess many of you have heard about this site. It’s my favorite when finding flights.

I like the feature that you can select the whole month to find the best time by comparing all the choices. You can also choose “Anywhere” as a surprising travel option.

However, the website doesn’t show all the cheap airlines, and sometimes the combination is a bit pricey. Therefore, I will use it as one of the references when searching for flights.

Be careful when you book multiple flights through this website.

Sometimes it says that you will take responsibility to transfer on your own, so you have to make sure to pick up all the luggage by yourself, and prepare a visa if needed.

I once booked multiple flights without knowing that I need a visa to transfer because my booking was with two different airlines. As a result, I lost my reservations and all the money :/

2. Goeuro

This website is handy because you can find all kinds of transportation, including buses, trains, flights or even Blabla cars.

It evaluates the Smartest options, the Cheapest options and also the Fastest options. You can also see the time needed for commuting as well.


3. Bravofly

I just discovered this website recently and used it as one of the options to find flights. You can also find hotels, cars or a combination between flights and hotels here.


4. Kayak

Kayak is one of the websites that I used to compare the price as well.

The website is user-friendly and well-designed.

If you sign up for an account, you may be able to find suitable private deals with up to 35% savings.


5. Fly4free

This website provides various good deals with a good combination of flights and accommodation. You can read more about the description of each trip on their website, and book the trips with the links.

If you are lazy to plan your trip or look for some travel inspiration, Fly4free will be your favorite website.


6. Momondo

Momondo is one of the best flight comparison prices.

It provides cheap options for flights, hotels, car rental. You can find some trip inspiration there as well.

I love the Trip Finder option. You can enter your budget, choose your favorite destinations or just randomly anywhere. You can also select which type of places you would love to go such as cities, beaches, nature or skiing, etc.


7. Rome2rio

This website is amazing! You can find all the unique paths through this one.

The site lists all the options by plane, bus, train, ferry, and automobile, along with the price and the time needed for transportation.


Europe flights

Sometimes I found cheap flights by checking directly on airplanes’ websites since some good deals do not show up in comparison websites.

These are some budget airlines you would love to know! Most of them are only available in Europe.


1. Ryanair

Ryanair is my top website to find cheap flights. You can save lots of money with this airline. I have used it several times, and these are my reviews.

Good points:

  • Incredibly cheap! You can find good deals starting from 5 Euro!
  • User-friendly website
  • You can bring a carry-on suitcase with a bag on board.


Bad points:

  • Hassle at the check-in if you don’t hold a proper passport. If you travel around Europe, and you’re not an EU resident, you will have to do a passport checkup at the check-in luggage point.
  • The seat is very tiny and not that comfortable. If you’re tall, you feel it very uncomfortable during the flights. However, I think it’s acceptable if you’re looking for a cheap option to go from places to places in a short period.
  • High charge if you bring extra luggage. Therefore check out the allowance rules carefully before you fly.
  • They play lots of commercials on the airplane, and it’s quite annoying. It’s quite understandable that Ryanair tries to have more income from selling stuff on the plane.


2. Norwegian

I love using the Norwegian service because it’s excellent. You can have free wi-fi access on board. There is no hassle in check in part.

Sometimes the price is a bit pricey, but if you are under 26, you can use the promotion code: UNDER 26, and you can see lots of deduction from the regular price! It can be even up to 50% off!


3. Wizz Air

Wizz Air provides cheap flights as well, even less expensive than other competitors. However, it’s quite inconvenient if you have more than one piece of luggage.

You will need to pay an extra fee if you bring more than “One piece of cabin baggage.” Read more here.


4. easyJet

I flew with this airline a few times and nothing much to complain, except it was late with the boarding time.

EasyJet is also one of the cheap options for flights, and the seat is quite small as well.


5. SAS

Some people will say SAS is quite expensive to fly, but it’s cheap if you book ” Young flights” for those who are under 26 years old.

Also, the price of SAS is a bit similar to Norwegian. You can get free coffee or tea on the plane, and the service is fantastic!

Finding cheap flights will take time, but it’s worth your effort. I hope you can find good deals based on the list of websites above.

Did I miss any useful websites? You can share in the comment so I can update the list!

  1. Very informative article. Many of the sites I have never heard of but will be sure to check next time I need to fly. I have always been baffled by airlines pricing and every time I fly I feel like I am getting ripped off. I love the idea you have about being flexible to dates to get the cheapest deals.

    1. Thank you. Being flexible to dates is one of the best ways to get cheap deals ;)

  2. I love how you have found so many great places. We usually use Skyscanner and we have tried some others. Your list is really good, there are places we have not heard of in here

  3. Damn such a great post! I use skyscnner and oratorio to see what’s the cheapest option! I love that you also have the list of budget airlines! I may have to try a few other websites now and see how it goes!

  4. Wizz Air…what a funny name. That is a new one to me! I love saving money on travel as much as I can. We travel with the kids and so everything we purchase is times 4! This is a great source of information for all travelers!! Great post. I’m sharing.

    1. I can imagine how much you spend for 4 people! I hope you can apply those tips to find the best deals when traveling with your family :)

  5. A gem of a post. So so useful. Bookmarking and sharing with friends who constantly have the same queries. I use sky scanner for its many advantages. But there are some more here that I have never even tried. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you for your sweet words :) I’m glad to know that you shared with your friends!

  6. Skyscanner and Kayak looks good and will try for another aircticket bookings. I have used Ryanair in Greece and I found it supercheap. I found your blog quite informative and essential for money savings

  7. I love Skyscanner the most. I specially like to use their price alert feature which notifies me every-time there is a price drop in the airfare of my selected destination. I like their ‘Anywhere’ feature also. Quite handy.

    1. I like the feature as well! It’s so handy that we can know when the price is dropped!

  8. I’m such a SkyScanner girl, but have been using Momondo more recently too.
    Now I’m based in Australia it is so important to use a good comparison site for international flights – the savings you can make can make such a difference to your trips! And having grown up in the UK, I miss having access to Europe’s budget airlines – there are so many good deals to help you explore the continent!

    1. Ohh… It’s bad that you missed Europe’s budget airlines, because you can save so much with them! I’m more for Skyscanner, but also love checking other websites as well.

  9. These are really good recommendations. I have read good reviews about Momondo. I have not tried any of the airlines on your list but I have heard about them. I will keep this in mind.

  10. Such a cool list. I love finding out where to book cheap flights/accommodation. Flightscanner seems to be a perfect choice, I have to try the other ones as well. I personally love Ryanair and never had problems, but I am German and only use them for short-distance flights within Europe.

    1. I don’t have problem with Ryanair as well, but it’s just not really comfortable because of the seat’s size. I also use it for trips inside Europe.

  11. I regularly use Skyscanner, as we don’t have as many options available to us in Australia. I like setting up alerts to let me know if there is a price change on a certain route or flight time. When I lived in Europe I regularly used Easy Jet and Wizz Air. Ryan Air only if necessary as it was often the biggest headache! Haha

  12. I’ve only heard of Kayak, so this post is really informative! Airfare seems like it’s getting more and more expensive. I’m going to start shopping around a bit more when my dates are flexible.

  13. Pinned this post! Great recommendations, we are always on the search for cheap flights and we’d never heard of some of the airlines and websites that you mentioned, we usually use Skyscanner. You’re so right about being flexible with dates, that can make a huge difference to costs.

  14. Always great to explore some other search engines for flights. You have mentioned some new ones to me thanks a lot! It can be such a money saver to compare and search a bit better. We use a lot, have a look it might be worth it as well. :)

  15. You have really put together a great resource here. Not only Europe specific but much broader than that, being essentially global. I was so impressed with the Rome to Rio site which combined a number of options to get you to your destination. Just brilliant!

  16. You have some great options there, I am always looking for new sites to find flights. I have not heard of Goeuro, so I am definitely going to check it out.

  17. Great list of airlines! Norwegian suffered from economical problems a couple of years ago and almost went bankrupt, which forced them to make a lot of changes in order to keep the prices down. So now there’s an additional fee for luggage, food, even water.. Because of that, I prefer traveling with SAS (the competitor), where food and drinks and luggage is included in the rate. On the other hand, Norwegian has free WiFi in all their flights – which is pretty cool :)

    1. I love SAS too. I usually compare both of the airlines to choose the best one!
