Have you discovered the Skyscanner flights website yet? Skyscanner provides a great way to hunt down and book the cheapest flight prices online.
This is a new system of searching for cheap flights online. You enter the details of your departure airport - or your departure country. Next key in the country or airport that you want to go to - hit the button and let the system do the rest.
Sky scanner presents you with a range of choices. You can look only at one way or return flight costs - or you can build a more complex journey plan. They even let you sign up for alerts whenever good package deals come around for your chosen departure point.
You'll find that the website is specially well set up for sorting out what are sometimes called open-jaw trips. These are flights or journeys where you fly into one airport or city and out of another - using your own travel plans to get between the two places by train or bus - or whatever other method your imagination comes up with. The Skyscanner flights website includes details on budget airline cost and travel route details from all over the globe and the layout of comparing prices is perfect for your needs. .
I also like to use it to book short notice city breaks or getaways. You can search by departure airport and date - leaving the destination blank and you will be presented with a large set of choices for cheap or discount quick holiday breaks. Skyscanner simply gives you a list of countries that you can get to using budget airlines from your chosen departure airport. This is a great function to use when you just want to get away, but are not sure where you want to go.
If you haven't used it before then I recommend that you give Skyscanners Cheap Flight Search function a go.
