One of the biggest issues when you are going to travel is buying the flight. Most of the people don’t travel because of the money. But even that on many occasions the flights are extremely expensive, you can get very good deals if you know how to find them.
For that reason, i’m going to tell you tips to get cheap flights:
Use apps to track your flight
There are many apps that allows you to track the prices of different airlines between 2 dates. With those apps you can select the dates where you are going to flight and they give you a list with the airlines that have the cheapest prices for that period. You can also receive notifications (For email or your phone) from those apps when a flight price is increasing or decreasing.

Start searching at least 3 months before your trip
There are multiple benefits on searching your trip at least 3 months before the trip:
- You can know how much a price change, so you can wait for the cheapest price.
- Take advantage of offers.
- You can decide in advance if that date doesn’t suit you.
When you are flexible on your dates, you can select the better price on a flight. For example, there are certains dates where a flight is cheaper than others, google flights allows you to see the differents prices when you are selecting the date.
When you are flexible on the airport, you can flight on the airport that have the best price. So if the transportation and the time is not an issue for you, that’s a good option to see which place have the best option.
