How our Flight Finder finds the cheapest flights with the world's best comparison sites

How our Flight Finder finds the cheapest flights with the world's best comparison sites

Welcome to the world's first meta-meta flight search® engine. Our Cheap Flight Finder is the only search engine that finds the cheapest flights from the best meta-search engines (flight comparison sites). We compare KAYAK, momondo, Skyscanner, Cheapflights, Jetradar, Kiwi, and more. It is essential to search more than one site because different places search different data sources, airlines, and travel agents. You can save up to 20% off your ticket by doing a side-by-side comparison using our powerful tab-based flight dashboard. We also enable travellers to search for low-cost flights on alternate dates via our flexible dates calendar and cater to all your travel needs. Whether you need a cheap return flight, one-way flight, multi-city flight, business class flight, or first-class flight, we got you covered.

Best ways to get cheap flights, tips from our CEO:

Compare as many flight comparison sites as you can.

Different cheap flight websites have different prices, so it is prudent to search as many as you can to be sure you have the cheapest deal. The best sites we recommend are the flight comparison sites as they search multiple other sites for you, saving you time and effort.

The only problem is that you need to compare multiple comparison sites too, as a single one doesn’t have the best price every time. Flights Finder has aimed to combat this problem by enabling you to compare all the best sites from one unique user dashboard.

To illustrate this point, we did a search using our search engine and compared prices for return flights in the economy cabin from London to Bangkok for a week in March. Skyscanner’s cheapest flight was £524, Kiwi.com’s was £556, KAYAK found it for £498 whilst JetRadar found it for £463. So you can see simply by comparing sites you have the potential to make a significant saving.

If you’d rather not spend your valuable time searching around, you can always ask for our experts to help you. Pay them a small finder’s fee and they will ensure they get you the best value deal for your flight. Just click the small expert help icon to gain access.

If your plans allow search on surrounding dates.

You can make significant savings by simply adjusting your travel dates slightly. Compare flights a few days before or after your departure/arrival and see how that affects prices. Some experts claim Tuesdays or Wednesdays are cheaper days to fly, so it is worth checking those options too.

For example, we looked for direct return flights from Manchester to Istanbul, Turkey from the 7th to the 17th of May. The best price for non-stop flights on those dates was £230 per passenger. However, if we adjusted the dates slightly and departed on the 8th of May and returned on the 17th, the flight price came down to £110 per passenger. Making a saving of £480 if a family of four was travelling.

With Flights Finder, our convenient calendars simplify finding cheaper flight days. Once you've entered your travel details, simply click on the flexible dates icon to explore alternate dates, but remember, they are just estimates. Confirm live pricing with a live search.

Add a stopover to see how that affects the price.

If your travel schedule allows, consider adding a stopover to lower your flight cost. Not only can this save you money, but it also adds adventure by allowing you to explore another city.

For example, if you wanted to fly one-way from Edinburgh to Abu Dhabi on the 20th of February, the cheapest flight would be £289. However, you could fly to Rome directly a day earlier for £60 than on the 20th fly from Rome to Abu Dhabi for only £47. That is a saving of £182 per passenger. You may have to factor in other expenses like food and accommodation on your stopover, but it may well be an option worth exploring.

If you have trouble finding optimal stopover connections, just hire our experts to help you out for a small fee.

Pay with a credit card so you can claim back your money if it goes wrong.

When you are on the lookout for the cheapest possible prices, you may come across some sites which have less than stellar reputations. Some deals may seem too good to be true and it may leave you wondering if this is a legitimate deal or not.

It is always wise to book with your credit card so you can claim back any money should the transaction go awry.

It states under section 75 of the consumer credit act that any company that breaches their contract, misrepresents their products or goes out of business entitles you to claim your money back as long as it is between £100 to £30,000. You can ask your bank for a section 75 claim form in order to submit a claim.

Try to take as little as possible with you to avoid luggage fees.

Airlines sometimes charge heavy fees for checked luggage, so it is worth trying to avoid that if you can. Most airlines will allow you to take one personal bag (which must fit under the seat in front of you) and one cabin bag which goes in the overhead locker (sometimes chargeable). It can be a good idea to check YouTube to get some advice on how to pack your bags effectively and how best to make use of the space you have.

It can be quite tiresome checking and comparing flights with luggage versus without as many flight comparison sites do not show that info. On our Flight Finder results page, we have a handy filter on the left-hand side, which allows you to check prices with checked bags on certain routes (courtesy of KAYAK). Alternatively, you can ask our experts to give you a breakdown of prices with or without luggage on the various websites.

Check multiple departure and arrival airports.

Sometimes making the journey to a slightly further out airport has the potential of saving you considerable money. Obviously, it will add to the journey time and may be less convenient, but if price is a major factor for you, it could save an enormous amount.

For example, flying on a return trip from Manchester to Bangkok for a week in April from the 16th to the 24th with one small 2 hour stop on route will set you back £797. However, if you could depart from London, a similar flight would be £506. That is a saving of £291 per passenger or for a family of four adults. It would save you £1164.

How to find cheap flights: Questions & Answers

How do I find the cheapest flights on earth?

If you are looking for the cheapest possible return trip to a particular destination on a fixed date, it would be wise to check multiple websites because different websites have different prices. Luckily FlightsFinder has made this task easy by providing you with a convenient dashboard that allows you to compare all the best search engines side by side. We search KAYAK, Skyscanner, Jetradar, momondo, Cheapflights, Kiwi, and more, effectively searching over 1200 different sources for flights to make sure you get the very best deal. To prove this, you can do a simple test, go to your favourite website, fetch the lowest price then compare it with our search engine tabs. We are highly confident we will beat or equal the price you can find anywhere else.

How do I find the cheapest dates to fly?

The number one factor which affects your flight price is the dates you choose to fly on. The more flexible you are with your flight dates, the cheaper your flight can be. Thankfully, our Flight Finder has a powerful, flexible dates flight tool. This tool allows you to see the cheapest return flight 3 days before or after your chosen dates, the entire month, or even the entire year. For example, if you wanted to fly to New York from London in May, It could set you back by about £350. However, if you used our flexible search, it will tell you that if you traveled in February, the price would be around £212. The best way to find a flight that suits you is to play around with the flexible calendar function and see what comes up.

What is a flight comparison site/ metasearch engine?

A flight comparison site, flight aggregator, or metasearch engine is a website that utilises complex technology to compare flights from multiple data sources. For Example, Skyscanner is one of the most popular flight comparison sites. They work by combining the APIs of many travel agents and then sorting the results so viewers can see the cheapest options quickly. To this date, there is no single comparison site that is entirely comprehensive; this is because different places tend to form various partnerships and search different data sources. A quick comparison of the comparison sites reveals that prices vary drastically between them. The best way to ensure the cheapest flight is to check multiple sites via our flight finder dashboard. 

What is Meta-Meta flight search®?

'Meta-Meta flight search'® is a unique term trademarked by FlightsFinder to describe our search engine accurately. It means searching multiple search engines or comparison sites to find the cheapest flights online—a single comparison site in the travel industry is known as a meta-search engine. Because our site compares multiple meta-search engines with one query, we proudly represent ourselves as the world's first 'Meta-Meta flight search'® engine. It is necessary to query a selection of the world's best flight meta-search engines to find the cheapest flights as prices can vary drastically between them. You have the potential of saving up to 20% off your airline ticket by simply comparing multiple search engines, and we have made this easy via our unique 'Meta-Meta flight search'® dashboard.

Are the prices on Flights Finder accurate?

The first thing to note is that FlightsFinder has no control over the flight prices on display. We aggregate the best third-party flight search engines on one platform. It is similar to Google in that sense; we display information found by others. However, the flights that our metasearch engine partners provide are usually very accurate. There may be the odd occasion where a flight is no longer available on click-through - or a flight that was listed has now gone up in price. We recommend that if such a thing was to occur, click another search engine tab on our dashboard and look for an alternate flight.

Which search engine is best for finding cheap flights?

In our opinion, the best sites to find cheap flights are flight comparison sites. You could go to a Travel agent like Lastminute.com or Expedia, but you don't get as many options as you do on a flight comparison site. For example, a simple search on Expedia for a round trip flight from London to Dubai in August returned the lowest price of £313. The exact search done on FlightsFinder found a cheaper flight via Skyscanner for £115. The simple answer is no search engine is best for finding cheap flights every time - your best bet is to search a few of the best flight search engines via our convenient flight finder dashboard.

How do I find the cheapest flight price guaranteed?

To find the cheapest possible flight to your destination, you need two things. 1.) to be flexible with your dates, and 2.) Check multiple flight aggregators. You can do this easily by using our robust, flexible date calendar, which gives you an idea of prices for the entire month or year. Then compare search engines on those days that the flights are cheapest (using our dashboard) and save even more of your ticket (even up to 20%). This strategy will practically guarantee you find the cheapest flight on earth.

How do I find the cheapest flights to a particular country or city?

To find the cheapest flight to a particular country, you need to enter a broad search in our recent deals carousel engine. FlightsFinder allows you to search from country to country to discover the cheapest route, for example - the United Kingdom to India. Our recent deals carousel search will show you the most affordable airlines and flights between the two countries. You can also do a broad city-to-country search such as London to China or Manchester to Thailand - this will give you the cheapest flight to the most affordable route between that city and country. You can find our recent deals carousel below the leading search engine form:

Recent UK Deals

If you wish to find the cheapest flight price to a particular city, enter your departure airport to the required city destination, e.g. London to Rome - then select flexible dates. You can choose flights for the whole month or even the entire year to discover the best time to fly.

When is the cheapest season to fly?

In airline terms, there are seasons known as peak seasons, when fares are at their highest, and off-peak seasons or 'shoulder seasons', when flights are cheaper. Seasons vary from country to country; for example, the hot summer months in Dubai, where temperatures can reach a blistering 50 degrees centigrade, would fall in the off-peak season. Alternately, snow resorts have their peak season in the winter months when the weather conditions are ideal for skiing. Generally speaking, for Europe and the USA, summertime is the busiest season to travel in, and fares tend to drop after September. The best way to find the cheapest time to fly is to use our flexible date calendars. Our calendars will show you which month is the most affordable to travel in the entire year. 

What are some other top tips to get the cheapest flights possible?

Other strategies to find cheaper flights include booking your flight and hotel together if you also require accommodation. Sometimes agents bundle prices together, leading to a discount, so it's always worth checking that out on our flight and hotel search page. Another option is flying into a close-by city to your intended destination; if it's a cheaper city to fly into, then take a road trip to your desired destination. You can check various open-jaw options using our multi-city or one-way flights page. This way, you may save a bit plus take in the sights of another city to boot. Also, make sure you maximise your frequent flyer programme so you can access discounted flights. Finally, we recommend you start looking for a flight about 54 days before departure. Leaving it to the last minute is risky and could lead to price increases and less availability of airline tickets.

How do I find the cheapest direct flights from the UK?

There are 2 ways to find the cheapest direct flights to your destination using our website. 1.) Do a search on our main search engine and when you are on the results page simpy select the filters on the left hand side and select direct flights only. You can also use our flexible flight calendars and filter them so it shows direct flights only to give you a rough idea of when direct flight prices are cheaper. 2.) You can also ask our experts to find you the cheapest non stop flights to your destination. Pay them a small fee and they will search multiple different dates and hundreds of different websites to get you the cheapest direct flights ever published. Our direct flights service will definitely save you more money than our service fee or we wil simply give you a full 100% refund.
