Top 4 Skyscanner hacks to keep your travel budget in check

Want to travel at the best price but can't figure out when to go? Here are Skyscanner's top 4 search tips on finding days with the cheapest flight tickets.

Let's go everywhere

1. How to view prices across an entire month

a. Enter travel details, such as the departure and destination airport. However, instead of entering a departure and return date, click on the calendar icon found on the right corner of the box and you’ll see a pop-up calendar. Choose the month you’d like to travel in and select the ‘Whole month’ button.

b. Complete the rest of your travel details and hit the ‘Search’ button when you’re done.

c. Skycanner will generate the search results in a calendar view to help you compare days with the best flight prices within your selected month. Simply pick the combination of arrival and departure dates that best suit you and hit "Show flights".

2. How to find the cheapest month to fly in

It is similar to viewing prices across a whole month – but instead of selecting ‘Whole month’, select ‘Cheapest month’. Just proceed to fill up the rest of your travel details and hit the ‘Search’ button to get your results!

Take note: You can still view results for other months by clicking on the dropdown menu.

Select 'Cheapest month' instead of 'whole month'!

3. How to compare the different prices available

You can compare the lowest price for each month by accessing the drop-down menu too!
