1. Search by month, not by day

By looking at an entire month instead of specific days, you can see when flights will be cheapest.

2. Book flexible tickets

Although travel has become much easier in recent months, going on vacation can still be unpredictable.

By booking flexible tickets, you can easily make changes to your booking should the unexpected arise.

On that note, it’s definitely worth having travel insurance, as an extra way to protect your vacation.

3. Know where you can go and what you need to get there

Proof of vaccinations, passenger locator forms and pre-booking Covid test kits are just some of the things you might need before you can board your flight.

Keeping up with ever-changing travel restrictions is tough, but it’s worth it to avoid long lines, stressful airport check-ins and the need to rebook flights.

Also worth keeping an eye out for government travel site for the latest information on what you need to do to ensure your vacation runs smoothly.

4. Not watching the clock

Skyscanner has a price alert feature on its website, so you don’t have to constantly check for price updates.

Most Black Friday deals won’t last long, so if you want to make sure you’re getting the best deals possible, set up flight alerts before the sales start.
