Best flight applications for travellers
WHEN YOU are looking for a low-cost flight and don't want to restrict yourself. Using ALL 8 different flight applications to find the lowest cost flight. An important note: The more often you look, the more the price increases. I have seen first handed, the fares for air travel rise by $150 just because I did the same quest three time.
And I knew it was going up, because when I opened the same cookie on another computer or deleted a cookie from my computer, the price immediately returned to its initial price. These are the best applications to review: When I book a flight within the USA, Google is my first address.
Offering everything from "anywhere" to a customizable calendaring feature, it even allows you to find out which carrier has the lowest fares by directly checking their fares for you. In fact, Google Flights takes you directly to the website, so you can buy your flight directly when you find the best one.
Sometimes I just looked through Skyscanners and selected the "Everywhere" checkbox, and listed the least expensive places (and exactly how much) of the town I was in. Better yet, Skyscanner has an options "whole month" and "cheapest month", with which you can check when the best flying is.
Skyscanner also has a "Calendar" and "Diagram" options that you can use to check your flight, both in a month-by-month calendaring display and in a bar graph that shows which dates have the highest and cheapest prices. Tip: I usually use this application when I book a flight in Europe or to Europe, as it definitely proves to be much less expensive than Googlelights.
It is the world's biggest student tour operator with many offers and promotion code for college and college people. The great thing about this application is that it puts everything together for you so you don't have to bother searching for these offers and promotion code.
More and more, STATravel is aimed at young and old learners. You usually have a bunch of offers beyond airfare! Suggested also for group trips. Have you always wanted to buy the best value seats, but you don't have enough spare manpower to keep an eye on the rates? The only thing you have to do is to enter your itinerary ( your departure and arrival cities and the dates ) and Hopper will keep an eye out for the price of the trip.
Every rise in fare Hopper will alert you, show you a schedule with the best flight purchase date and predict when fare may rise or fall. It' a bit like Hopper, but it monitors your own rates for the routes you enter and send you e-mail alerts when there are offers.
When you receive these "Fare Alert" e-mails, you will be shown not only the ticket price for the journey you want to "watch", but also the tariffs you might like and the price of inland tariffs from your town to many other towns. Travelling Pirates is a good application if you don't know where you want to go and are adaptable when you want to go.
Basically Travels Pirates picks up all available flight offers and presents them in a clear and concise application. Offers are added every day so there is always a good opportunity to find good flight offers. Furthermore, Pirates has offers for cruise ships, holidays and hotel accommodation. When there is an application that has "outsmarted" the airlines games, it is this one.
Like most flight applications, Skipplagged will find all the lowest rates, but unlike most applications, Skipplagged will find rates for "hidden cities". So, how exactly does this "hidden city" rate work? Non-stop from Las Vegas to Boston. Maybe over $300 one way, but a rate with the same carrier from Las Vegas to Washington D.C. with a stop in Boston could be $150.
So, you buy the flight to DC and get off the Boston airplane. The Copenhagen flightfinder is another Skyscanner application I like. Like Skyscanner, you can browse for a flight to different destinations and get quotes in a calendar-like ad compared a few business days before and a few business days later.
The Momondo service also allows you to select the kind of tickets you are looking for (Economy, Bus and First Class) and allows you to directly check these different fares in the application.
