Tips for finding the best flight deal
  • Be flexible: Let the sale dates and destinations choose your next getaway spot. The more flexible you are in terms of when you can travel and which routes are discounted, the cheaper you'll be able to fly for.
  • Pack light: Budget airlines usually don't include bags with your fares, and if you're scoring a cheap domestic flight, it can often add up to an extra 50% or more on top of your ticket. Carry-on bags are free and allow you to bring up to 7kg on board with you.
