Holiday season is calling and all you want is to get out from the daily grind as quickly as possible. Whether to Asia, America, Oceania or somewhere in Europe or at home in good old Germany, there are enough places you can go to. Since you probably prefer to save money or would rather spend it on site than for the flight, websites such as Momondo, Skyscanner or Swoodoo have become indispensable nowadays. Here, we have listed a few tips on how you can best find the best price for your flight.

Book early and save!

Especially when it comes to long-haul flights, it’s worth it if you already booked 6 weeks prior to arrival. The closer the departure, the more expensive it normally becomes. Momondo, for example, offers statistics for each destination to show you when it’s best to book your flight.

The best flight days

The best days to fly are Tuesday, Wednesday and often Thursday/Saturday.

Don’t wait for the very best to come

If you discover a good price, it doesn’t help much to sit, think and wait for an even better price to come. Set your limit and when you have found an attractive price, just book the tickets. By the way, after everything is fixed, it’s best not to check whether anything has changed because it can be a bit frustrating.

Radius Search

If possible, be a little flexible with the airport and transfer location. Often there are cheaper alternatives if you start from a different location. Of course, you have to make sure that you can get to your hotel cheaply and easily from there as well!
