Additional user-friendly features
1. Price alert
In case you are planning your travel in advance, say 2 months to 8 months in advance, then you can subscribe to Skyscanner’s price alert that will let you know every time there is a price change (up or low) for the route you have selected. This is a very helpful tool for you to book the flights at the right time and at the best price. Click on “Get Price Alerts” to subscribe to this.
If you are flexible on the dates of travel, you can use the Cheapest Month search feature to check out the most economical flight prices to your desired destination. Select “Cheapest month” in the dates of travel to get the cheapest flight options. These flight options are selected after scanning through all the airlines and their prices.
You also have the option to compare flight prices across a specific month you wish to travel and finalise on the dates from the calendar of cheapest flights that are most affordable and suitable for you.
The flight price for each day of the month is displayed. To make it more convenient for you, prices are highlighted in different colours. Prices in red indicate they are on the higher side, whereas prices in green indicate they are on the lower side.
Travelling to a new destination is always an adventure, but to ensure you avoid unwanted hazards, it’s always good to book your accommodations and cabs (if required) in advance.
