googleflights booking for cheap
Explore the cheapest months to fly
Imagine that you know where you want to go, but you do not know when. Maybe
you want to take a 'mai tai' in Hawaii, but you can not afford to spend
almost € 4,000 on a ticket in high season.
No problem. Google Flights allows you to research the cheapest months to fly,
thanks to an algorithm that averages rates. Yes, keep in mind that these
estimates are quite approximate to reality, but, obviously, the results may
vary at the time of booking the trip definitively.
Another option is to go to the 'flexible dates' tab. In this case, we will
navigate between the actual actual prices per month, so the amount will
hardly change when you make the actual purchase.
Search for cheap trips per month
This is the opposite case. You know what month you want to travel, but you do
not know where (and deep down, it does not matter).
No problem. Go on sale 'Discover destinations' and there, instead of
selecting exact dates, you can select a month, as well as a time slot in the
month (one week, two weeks, weekend ...).
And if all this were not enough, you can also apply filters by region or
country, as well as a selection of interests (nature, food, honeymoon,
Get notifications when flight prices change
As you well know, the prices of flights fluctuate a lot. Therefore, a good
idea is to start tracking prices as soon as possible to be able to buy the
ticket when it is at its lowest price.
How to do it? Very easy. Select a round trip flight and then go to the bottom
of the page and select 'Save this itinerary'. Google Flights allows you to
review all saved itineraries and their subsequent price changes.
Also, this platform also allows you to activate alert in Google Now that will
notify you of price changes.
A tip: according to a study, airline tickets have the lowest price 54 days
before the date of travel. Take an account!
Look for long transfers to visit 'hidden' cities
Do you want a complete adventure? Well you can search for 'hidden'
transshipment cities. What do I mean? Well, Google Flights allows you to find
a flight with a very long transfer, which would allow you to get to know a
different city from where you are heading, while you make a stopover.
To see your cities 'hidden', simply look for a flight as you normally do, but
under the 'More' tab, you will see a list of transhipment cities so you can
choose the one that suits you best.
