Your tips on: Getting Cheap Flights


#1

alright?

Doing Japan next year and want to be one of those dweebs that absolutely nails down a deal and then talks about it proudly to people who hate him i.e. “guess how much it cost me.”

So what’s yer advice hmm?


#2

Just use flight centre for long haul and Skyscanner for short


#3

don’t bother. yeah you’ll get a few quid off but at what cost?

you’ll become one of those people.

fuck that

next it’ll be your mobile tariff.


#4

#10

I just use Skyscanner. Obviously private browse that shit.


#11

Holiday Pirates app, it’s litreally changed my life.


#12

There are (or were last week) aeroflot flights to Japan for 290 for July/August, would that help you?


#13

Are flight centre any good, I thought that they were bellends (mostly because of show I saw on them.


#14

If travelling to Europe - BA 9+ months in advance. Although BA are shit now for short haul, taken away all of the benefits. But at least you get better flight times and a nicer plane.


#15

Long haul it’s not about the cheapest is it but about the best combo of value and comfort. Like we’re gonna go to Indonesia next year I think but fuck doing one of the flights where you’ve got to stay overnight in Doha or whatever to make a £200 saving.
