3 tips to work better with skyscanner
In an earlier post we already gave you some tips to book your flights as cheaply as possible. One of the tips we gave you at the time was to use skyscanner. Of course, this tip only helps if you know how to work with this website in the right way. That’s why today we’re discussing 3 tips to make it easier and better to work with skyscanner.
Work better with skyscanner
1 Set price alert
If you really want to find the best price for a flight to your favourite destination, you can set a price alarm. By setting the price alarm you get an email if the price is at its lowest. This ensures that you have the best price for your plane ticket. Of course you have to set this up well in advance because otherwise you run the risk that prices will not fall anymore. We find the maximum two months in advance.
Setting a price alarm on skyscanner is not difficult. First, set the date and destinations and then press search. When you have done this, you will see all possible flights appear but also a button on the left with ‘set price alarm’. So you have to click on this and just enter your email address. And the website does the rest.
2 Comparison card
You can also work better with skyscanner by using the comparison card of this handy website. On this map you set your airport where you normally want to leave. And the map will show you all possible flights using green and red balls from this airport. The green balls are the most interesting destinations and the red ones the slightly lesser ones. This card can therefore be used ideally to see if there are any alternative cheaper airports near your final destination. This card is also nice if you don’t know where you are looking and need some inspiration.
3 Single ticket US return ticket
Always make sure that the purchase of two single tickets is not cheaper than a return ticket. Because often a return ticket is actually more expensive because you can also book two single flights with different airlines. You can easily check this by opening and comparing a few tabs.
Although comparing yourself is perhaps the best tip to work better with skyscanner. Because you also have to take a good look at what’s in the price. Because sometimes you’ll find tickets that are 200 euros cheaper than the competition but then you have to switch 3 times instead of a direct flight. And we don’t think that’s the point.
