Today, traveling is more affordable than ever before. But despite this, many people still have difficulty finding cheap flights.

Due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, fuel prices have risen globally, so airlines have raised ticket prices. OBOZREVATEL tells you how to find the best deals, including discounts, promo codes, and other special promotions.

  • Timing is everything

According to the British guide Condé Nast Traveler, buying tickets at the last minute can be beneficial. The British magazine assures that the ideal time for this option is three weeks before the planned trip. As the flight date approaches, airlines usually reduce the price to fill the plane.

  • Comparison sites for finding cheap flights

One of the most popular airfare comparison sites is Skyscanner. It shows ticket prices from various airlines and search engines such as Expedia, Kayak, Momondo, and others. Skyscanner also offers a flexible date search function that allows you to find cheaper flights on different dates.

  • Search for tickets separately

Even if you're planning a trip for the whole family, it's cheaper to do your research and buy each ticket separately, as automated fare systems look for seats with the same price. Therefore, when you book tickets in a group, the price may be higher, and you won't even notice it in the end.

  • Savings when choosing a package

Booking airline tickets in a package can be a more profitable solution for travelers, as such packages usually include not only tickets but also various services, such as hotel accommodation, transfers, excursions, and more. However, it is recommended that you carefully read all the terms and conditions before booking such a package.

  • Beware of baggage fees

Many airlines charge baggage fees and impose restrictions on the number and size of bags. If the service is not included, do the math first and see if the fare you found is really worth it after adding the cost of the baggage. This additional service is usually an unpleasant "surprise" for travelers.
