Use comparison sites
It might be obvious that in order to get the cheapest price you have to compare it with others beforehand. But which platform is offering the best deals at the moment?
Nicky Kelvin, travel expert and Head of travel website The Points Guy UK, explained that his favourite and one of the most powerful tools especially for air travel is Google Flights.
“Much like Google itself, Google Flights offers an unparalleled aggregation of data and options which we can use to save time and money during the trip planning process.”
However, travel expert warned that it is important to be fast: “Deals across the travel world pop up each and every day — and disappear just as fast.”
Setting a price alert is a very useful trick, as it will let you know straight away when the price of the holiday you’re looking for has gone down. “A number of sites, like Google Flights and Skyscanner, allow you to track price alerts and can allow you to avoid peak travel times (and therefore higher costs).”
