There are SO many travel search engines out there it’s hard to tell which one is the best to use. Well, lucky for you I’ve pretty much tried them all (Orbitz, Expedia, Momondo, Kayak, Google Flights, CheapAir, Priceline, Travelocity, Hopper, etc, etc…) and I want to share with you the EXACT way I search for and book our flights personally and for all my travel clients.
TIP: I made a video on my computer showing you exactly how I do this step-by-step so make sure you check it out below!
HOW I SEARCH AND BOOK FLIGHTS:
Here’s the deal… I’ve tried every travel search engine out there and Google Flights is by far my favorite. (No, this isn’t sponsored). I LOVE the features of Google Flights and how user-friendly it is. You can easily find the cheapest days to fly to a particular location using the explore feature and it will even let you know if a nearby airport is cheaper.
Watch the video below where I show you exactly how to use these features (it’s easy!)
NOTE: If cost over flight time is way more important to us, I sometimes check out Momondo. It does find the cheapest options but it usually involves longer layovers, stopovers, etc.
NOTE 2: I get emails from Scott’s Cheap Flights when they find certain flights are on sale from my departing home base airport. I still book through Google Flights but SCF simply notifies me that they have found a sale.
