Cheap flights

(see the discussion page for full discussion/comments about the content of this page)


Apart from surfing directly into, or others, the best way to check for the cheapest ticket is the use of some flights search web engines. Just be sure the search engine you use is not a scam, and includes the very cheap airlines (i.e. Ryanair), which are often not included.

Here a quick list:

  • - Fast, reliable, no need for registration; includes Ryanair. Automatic search for nearby cheaper destinations.
  • - Good for the ability to search of nearby cheaper dates, but you need to register for this option to be enabled, plus it does not include Ryanair.
  • - Has the good feature of tracking price drops in airfares.

Others you can try:

  • Flylc [3]
  • [4]
  • The Low cost Airlines Blog [5]
  • OptiFly [6]
  • WiseTravelSearch [7]
  • [8]


  • the easiest way to be sure you know all Airline Companies that serve your destinations is to look directly at the official website of your destination's airport (see List of airports in Europe). Each airport website has always a page with the list of Airlines that operate in it.
