How do I find the best deal from Hipmunk?

How do I find the best deal from Hipmunk?

Hipmunk is an aggregator and not a booking site, so you can’t book your travel here, but it will find you the best online deals. Here are a few pointers to help you find the lowest prices:

  • Fly during the week: Weekend prices tend to be higher than weekday prices. Wednesday tends to be the cheapest day to fly.
  • Before buying a return ticket, check the price of two one-way tickets: Sometimes it works out cheaper.
  • Check the costs for transfers to and from an airport: Sometimes a cheaper flight to a secondary airport can be made more expensive because of the price of transfers.
