Skyscanner gives flexible date searching so you can see which dates are the cheapest to travel to and from your selected location. Their ‘cheapest month’ feature can come in handy for travellers who have chosen a destination but no specific dates. The advantage they have over other search engines is their flexible departure searching rather than selecting a specific airport you can search a country to find the best deal. It’s also great for finding last-minute gems suitable for those on a budget if you do not manage to find a last-minute flight at a lower cost you can set up alerts for specific days and routes and be notified by email.
