Be flexible

If you are not one of those who have to make vacations by obligation in the month of August (or Easter or Christmas) you are lucky. If your flying dates are flexible, out of season and you don't mind getting up early or spending the night so you can find cheap flights multiply. And if destiny is not important, even better. Often the least popular destinations are the ones that surprise us the most.

Take a look at online tools to find flights without a destination and the one used to search for flights in a full month (or even in a whole year). You will be surprised to find out which dates are the best to pay little for your flights.

Book round-trip flights ... separately

The reason tells us that a round trip ticket should be cheaper ... But it is not always the case and often if you buy the two itineraries separately you can get the cheapest flights. Research, compare ... and look to see if booking your flights separately can save some money.

Say yes to the scales

As in the previous point, logically a direct flight should be cheaper but the reality is not usually that way. So keep in mind that there are quite a few exceptions and that often making a stopover of several hours at some other destination can lead to considerable savings in the price of the flight . In addition to this, you know that sometimes flights early in the morning and late at night are usually somewhat cheaper. The best thing you can do is investigate.

Book at the best time

In reality, nobody can predict exactly the best time to book a flight, as dozens of factors influence at the same time. However, many tools have created an approximate guide to the best time to book the flight you are interested in , for the most demanded routes. Use this information as a generic guide.

For example, if you want to fly from Madrid to New York, on average, the best time to book your flights is approximately 16 weeks before.

Sign up for airline newsletters

Something as simple as going to the websites of the airlines that fly from your nearest airport (or to your favorite place) and sign up for your newsletter. Every time they launch offers, promotions or discounts you will receive an email in your inbox with all the news. Then compare prices on online to see if it's really worth it and get flights so cheap that your friends won't know how you got them.

Discover which is the cheapest airport

Not always the nearest, largest or smallest airport is the cheapest. There are many factors that come into play. So the smartest thing is to compare, compare and compare. Not always flying from airports like Girona or Reus is cheaper than doing it from Barcelona, ​​for example ... Especially if you have to add the cost of the transfer. So take the opportunity to take a look at the nearby airports tool and discover how much you could save if you moved a few kilometers.

Do not bill

In the latter it is rare to be able to check in a free suitcase since most airlines charge for this. So if you want to save some money, plan well what you are going to take, travel light ... and do it with a cabin suitcase . Maybe if you are going to be 2 or 3 weeks away it is not ideal, but you can always wash your clothes at the destination. You already know, if you want to save on your flights, don't bill.

Take advantage of discounts

Not all airlines have discounts for students (or any other type) but Vueling is one of them. So if you have the Youth Card (and less than 31 years old) you can save € 5 each way, which is not bad. And, after all, the important thing is that your flights are cheap.
