How do you find the cheapest flights?
Comparing prices is one way to find the cheapest flights, but if you have a trusted website or preferred company, ask if they price match.
Booking with a company that will price-match your fare will also guarantee the lowest price for a flight. Usually, you'll need to compare apples to apples, so make sure you're looking at the same airline, the same departure date and time and the same inclusions (if you're needing extras like checked baggage). To learn more about this, read our guide that lists out booking sites and airlines that will let you price match.
Knowing which days flights go on sale is also key when booking. Many airlines have regular sales, whether weekly or annually, and booking during one can reward you with a low fare. We've seen prices drop as low as $19 recently with Jetstar during one such sale.
When is the cheapest time to fly?
Through our research trawling through flight searches to learn – and booking plenty for ourselves too – we've found that flying in the early morning or late at night tends to reward the lowest fare.
When it comes to the days of the week, Tuesdays and Wednesdays tend to have the lowest fares.
