HOW TO FIND CHEAP FLIGHTS – FLIGHT BOOKING SECRETS & BEST BOOKING SITES – HOW TO FLY CHEAP LIFEHACK


In this video I am going to show you how you
can find the cheapest flights online no matter where you are going. I am going to show you my personal booking
techniques and a super secret book tool you probably haven’t heard of yet which potentially
can save you hundreds to thousands of dollars on your next trip. My name is Mike I am a travel vlogger youtuber
and entrepreneur and in the past few months I have traveled to Bangkok, Bali, Cape Town,
London, Munich all over the world. Because we travel so much, I developed a booking
technique that saves us a ton of money every time we fly. In the past year I have booked almost one
hundred flights online. And I’m going to share all me tricks with
you today. Not only am I going to show you how to book
cheap economy and coach but also how to get cheap business class and first class flights. Using the tricks I am going to give you today
you are never going to overpay for a flight ever again. So if you are wanting to save money on airline
tickets or trying to put together a luxury vacation – this video is for you. So before I get started with my booking tricks
I want to ask you to smash that thumbs up button for this video and subscribe to my
channel. I am a daily vlogger and together with my
girlfriend we travel the whole world always on the go and we have fun upbeat travel vlogs
and daily vlogs. Be sure to check them out after this video
and stay subscribed to my channel there is a lot of fun content coming your way. When talking about how to fly cheap there
are a few factors that you have to consider. One of them is where you are traveling from
and where you are traveling to and how flexible are you with your departure airport and destination
airport. The second thing is how flexibel are you with
your date of travel. The more flexibility the easier it is to find
cheap airline tickets. Another key factor to finding cheap flight
is actually to find the best booking sites. But really the secret to cheap flights is
combining all of those factors into one magic booking strategy. If you want to fly cheap you’ve got to be
smart. So as I mentioned flexibility when booking
airline tickets is one of the key factors in actually succeeding in finding the cheapest
flights. That in term means finding the best booking
sites means finding the most flexibel booking sites. There are some good options out there like
flights.google.com or kayak.com. They let you enter 3-5 departure airports
and 3-5 destination airports and you can be fairly flexible on the travel date. but for what we are looking for that is not
good enough. Also many of the booking sites don’t show
you all of the airfares because some of the fares are so discounted that the booking site
wouldn’t get any commissions anymore. So found another secret to cheap airfare. Finding those fares that not even the booking
sites have. Well I stumbled upon a website that combines
all those factors into one beautiful beautiful packet and I am going to show it to you right
now. So the website I want to show you guys is
ITA software matrix which is actually powered by google now. So what you are going to do is go to matrix.itasoftware.com
So this is the site that is going to come up and actually this whole website is pretty
self explanatory but I am going to give you a quick overview. Let’s say I want to fly from Miami to Vienna. I put in the departure Airport which is Miami
and then the destination airport Vienna. No I don’t have a set travel date that I
need to be in Vienna just for this example lets take the 1st May. So I will go to outbound date. 1st of May 2017 and I can say departure on
this day only. So lets stick with that. And I want to fly back on lets say the 7th
of May. Down here I can pick for how many people. I’m just going to leave it at one adult. Cabin the cheapest ticket available. Although I could choose premium economy, business
class or first class. Now then I can define how many stops I should
have on this travel. The stops actually mean how many layovers
are there going to be on this trip. I am going to leave it at no limit. So when I hit search the software takes a
while because it is going through a ton of different flight routes and flight options. it takes two or three minutes just leave it
be it will find the results don’t try to refresh the page or anything because you will
loose the fares that you found so far. So here we have the first results. The cheapest flight it found was $ 1,025 with
TAP Portugal which flies from Miami to Vienna via Lissabon. I don’t know thats not to cheap usually
I am able to book business class for that price. For economy I am sure we can do better. Lets go and tweet our settings a little bit. Now I told you the more flexibility you have
the cheaper your tickets are going to be. So what I’m going to do is I am going to
see what airports would be ok for me to depart from and which airport would be ok to fly
to. The software actually has a great tool built
right into it. If you go here and click on nearby next to
Miami you can see which airports are located in a vicinity of 75 miles. No you can set that value to anything you
want. I am going to go to – let’s say – 200 miles. So right there it is showing me a ton of airports. And I am going to say Ft. Lauderdale is ok for me West Palm Beach is
ok for me. Bahamas not so much. Alternatively you could just select all airports
if you like. Lets give that a bash. So now you see it brought in all the airport
codes right into this field here. Now lets go to the destination. Now I now Vienna in general is a very expensive
airport. So lets see what alternatives we have. Now because its Europe there are a ton of
airports you could fly to and the trip from that airport to Vienna is only going to be
very short. Train fares are very cheap in Europe so thats
a good alternative. So just to try this out I am going to select
all again and bring this to my search field. So now as I said I am fairly flexibel on this
trip. I don’t have any set dates where I have
to be anywhere I can still plan ahead which you also should do when you are planning a
vacation. So I can say instead of search exact dates
I want to see calendar of lowest fares. So when I click on this I can say the earliest
day I want to depart is May 1st and I can define the length of stay. So I said I want to stay for 7 days but I
would be able to stay 7-10 days so I put in 7-10 days. Again it’s going to be one adult flying. Cheapest available no limit on the stops and
search this. Now this search is going to take substantially
longer than the first search because now he is searching through thausands of routes and
this might take up to ten minutes. So I’m going to grab an espresso and come
back. Alrighty that went faster than I though I
didn’t even have time to get my espresso. But now the computer has shown us a calendar
of cheapest fares. And look at that – now we have a price of
$612 vs. $1,025 thats a 40% thats more than 40% discount to the previous.So now I can
just go and click on this airfare and It will show me which airport it actually picked out
for us. But now when I look at that in detail the
price went down even a little bit more. The cheapest price we have right now is $572
that almost $500 cheaper than the regular fare we found. Now the airports its showing me is flying
from Miami to FCO and FCO is actually the airport in Rom, now Rom is just a little bit
too far away, I think the train ride is somewhere between 6 and 7 hours. I am not really going to want to travel that
far away so lets look at the other options it shows me. Right here I found a flight for $712 from
Miami to Prague and Prague is just 2 hours away from Vienna. So thats perfect. So if I book this ticket I’ve saved a ton
of money on this flight. Now lets say the airports that you picked
are too far away you can always still go back and modify your search a little bit. You can delete the airports and define airports
yourself. So you can say I want to go Miami, Fort Lauderdale,
Orlando and Tampa for example. And destination airport I want Vienna, Munich,
Salzburg, Prague and lets just go with that. We can increase the flexibility by a little
bit. Just to get a cheaper flight. So here he seems to have found a flight for
$699 lets see where thats from. Excellent so this flight is from Miami to
Prague and then back again from Prague to Miami. There are still a few options you can look
into. There are different flight times, there are
different stop overs, there are different airlines. Just pick whatever you like most or which
is the most convenient for you. And then you click on the price. Now this going to bring up a page that has
the summary of all the booking details, all the flight details. But you can’t actually book your flight on
this website. What you are going to have to do is either
try and find the flight with these exact dates on flights.google.com, kayak.com or Expedia. You could try going to your local travel agent
and booking it with them or what you can do is I have another super cool tool its a second
website which is called bookwithmatrix.com. They way this works is you take your fare
code which is in here. You just click anywhere on the website press
cmd+a or ctrl+a on a windows computer copy everything you selected and paste it into
this website. Now this is going to show you the whole flight
itinerary and you can go and book this flight with priceline directly. So once you have done that put in all your
details on the booking site, book your flight and – you know what for that money that you
saved on that flight invest more in your hotel or invest in food or invest in good drinks
or coffee. I have a second video that goes more into
detail on travel hacking. Things like fuel dumping. Check out that video its how to fly business
class cheap. Its linked in the description down below and
right up here. I hope you enjoyed this video be sure to subscribe
to this channel and check out my vlogs check out my travel videos. Leave me a comment. Let me know if you have any other travel hacks
or travel tricks that you want to share. If there are any questions that you have don’t
be shy leave them in the comments section down below – thats what is there for. Thank you for tuning in I will see you guys
in the next video. Good bye I am going to book myself the next
flight here.

  • Mr Meow

    came out 10 times more expensive than even expensive flights tried different variations , never hit like button without watching and trying it out first :-/

  • Avendy App

    Thank you for this video. Really helpful. The worst feeling is when you find a cheaper ticket after making a purchase. There is so much information that is available, it’s impossible to find what is right for me. I found a great platform that saves me time and finds me the best deals. I was surprised to see a fare difference of more than $70 dollars. www.avendi.me has a personal concierge service that gives me the best deals on flights, booking and experience.

  • music27

    Hi, after you find the best fly on Skyscanner, which agency do you use? Can you buy it without any agency just from Skyscanner?

  • Ken Parker

    Cheap can be deceiving: Here is the latest scam from Flighthub.com. We booked tickets to London England through Iceland through Flighthub. They were issued as "Premium Economy". Under Baggage allowance details with "Economy Regular" one bag per person is included with Icelandair. We thought we were good. We ended up paying $584 in baggage fees for 3 legs of the flights. Contacted Flighthub for a refund. Their story is that they have 4 levels of tickets: 1)Economy 2)Premium Economy 3) BusinessClass and 4) First class and none of them includes ANY bags. Its in their fine print! In other words, Flighthub labels their tickets irrespective of what class of seat is booked with the airlines. BUYER DEFINATELY BEWARE. The cheap flight wasn't so cheap afterall!!

  • Carrie Commanda

  • Man on an Island

    I'm going to try this but sometimes a couple of hundred w/o my points is kind of a tough sale. I've flown to Asia twice for free $89 and to a few other places with points. I have gotten cheap flights! $315:to Paris and $615 w/o points. I booked them at 3A.M. both from the U.S. It's something about 2A.M to 4 A.M. booking using to devices until BINGO !

  • Ki Tae Stünzi
