5 Ways to get the lowest-priced flights for travel clients

Skyscanner’s Ayoub El Mamoun’s top tips on how to find the best travel deals

Book ahead, be as flexible as possible, and consider using two airlines for return flights to get the best deals for your clients. Skyscanner’s travel expert Ayoub El Mamoun shares his top tips to find the best summer flight deals ahead of the Eid Al Adha holidays.

1. Be price smart
“Searching by multiple dates and airports will give you the best chance of a bargain. Setting up price alerts will ensure you’re the first to know as prices drop with any additional discounts or added supply. You can mark a flight you’re interested in and Skyscanner will email you whenever the price goes up or down.”

2. Consider all options
“The last few years have seen new destinations rise in popularity as corridors shone a light on some surprising gems. Swapping your usual break in Greece for for the Albanian Riviera could be an unexpected delight.”

3. Mix & match to make big savings
“Not just a summer fashion trend, mix and matching the airlines you choose to fly with can seriously cut costs. Fares don’t have to be booked as returns, look at flying out with one airline and back with another to save money. You can easily compare prices on Skyscanner’s cheapest month tool.”

4. Use the whole month tool to find the best deals
“Flight prices are all based on supply and demand. Because some dates are more popular than others, prices will vary. The ‘whole month’ search tool allows you to see cheap flights at a glance and pick the right deal for you. Consider traveling a day before or a day after your original departure dates.”

Flying on less popular days of the week is always cheaper

5. Flex is the word
“In the past being flexible with travel might have meant flying at anti-social times to get a good price. But now with a constantly changing travel landscape, it’s important to know what the change policies are on flight tickets and accommodation. These policies are highlighted on Skyscanner searches, so booking travel can be changed easily. Choosing these flexible options can sometimes be much cheaper than package deals and of course, allows for a personally tailored trip.”
