This is an industry backbone service that is now owned by Google. It was an independent company. Google had to license the software to other companies as part of the buyout deal. This software is now part of the Google travel division.
It’s has a very slow response time when you do your searches, but you will end up finding some of the best deals in most cases. Keep in mind you will not be able to buy tickets directly on this website. It will send you to a sellers web page that has the best deal.
This website is a free resource that post deals. DID I MENTION FREE! NO SIGN UPS. Cheap flights for the win!
The website is managed by a passionate group of travelers who post deals as soon as they see them. Keep in mind that many of the deals will have an expiry date. So you will have to keep checking their website for the best cheap flight deals.
This website has been very controversial because of the how it uses its methods in getting you the cheapest ticket possible. This company plays on the nuances of the travel industry to get you the best deal. It’s not really illegal but the industry will end up hating you.
This is a referral site. It finds some of the best deals on cheap flights on the internet. But there is a caveat. Their deals are not always what they say they are. By the time you reach the actual booking website price might go up. Or you might get a ticket but it might be a standby ticket. So use this website as a reference. You might be better off buying the tickets on the main airline website directly.
I use this for researching because the map features that Google has. I can pick my starting point and then roam around the globe looking for deals. If I am interested in visiting a particular area or just trying to figure out what might be a good getaway for my budget, this research tool is very useful. I pick my starting point and look for the cheapest flights.
Here are a couple of bonus tips.
When doing your research, use a VPN or switch your browser to incognito mode. Once their AI knows that you are looking for deals, it will slowly creep up the price of the cheap flight tickets on you. It might not be large amounts, but those pennies will add up.
Keep in mind there are a lot of budget airlines that do not list their prices on industry shared networks. Example Southwest Airlines and Allegiant Air. So if you are looking for a new place to explore, visit the airport website to see what airlines go there. Then see what deals you can get directly from the airline website. You would be surprised by deals you can find on cheap airline tickets.
Discount airlines such as Spirit air or Ryan air in Europe are good for finding cheap flights. But you need to pay attention to their protocols, baggage and on how to get on and off a flight. If do not pay attention they will end up being more expensive than any other airline.
