Cheapest Flight Finder Guide
Follow the steps below to find the cheapest days to travel!
Using the search form at the top of the page, fill in your departure and arrival airports, the number of passengers who will be flying and the cabin class you'd like to fly in.
Next, search for the dates you wish to travel. If you click on the date selection box, our Best Fare Finder calendar will pop up displaying the cheapest days of the month to fly. Scroll along to your preferred month of departure.
Our traffic light system helps you decide when to fly. Dates that are displayed in green are the dates that are cheapest to fly within that month. Amber dates are flights of average value and the red dates are the most expensive days to fly within that month.
If you're flexible with your travel dates, you might be able to find departure or arrival dates that are earlier or later than your original plan which turn out to be cheaper and help you save money!
Looking for flights on another day? No problem! Once the search results have loaded, you can amend your travel dates to compare flights on alternative days. Keep using our Best Fare Finder tool until you find the most suitable flights for you.
