1. Always use more than one web-service for your search. Here’s my list:
d) pelikan.cz (czech language)
2. Check for online schedule of incoming and outgoing flights on web-sites of major airports in your destination point.
3. Based on the search results and the flight schedule, find out the airlines flying to that destination, and the departure point.
4. Check for the prices these airlines offer at their web-sites. Beware that some of the airlines may be omitted from the search results.
5. Try and kick around with different dates (within the range of 3 to 5 days) and different airports
(like main airport vs. remote airport).
6. In terms of prices, the best days for flights are likely to be Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.
7. Transfer flights will often appear to be cheaper as compared to nonstop/direct flights.
8. I often come across with interesting offers from tourist companies that buy out charter flights, such as Tui travel company, for instance. However, to tell you the truth, I personally do not really enjoy charter flights due to lower service and kind of inferior condition of aircrafts.
9. If you buy tickets from an air company, you may want to get registered at the company’s web-site: this will often result in ample bonuses and benefits.
10. Subscribe to air companies’ promotion campaign special offers, or install the relevant mobile apps.
These are the Czech services that I use:
Good luck in your search, and enjoy your travel!
