Book Best Flight Deals with Skyscanner, Global Travel Search Engine


Travel has now become a part of our regular routine. More often if you are a traveler of air-conditioned coaches in trains, it makes it easy to travel by flights instead. It saves time and efforts. This can be possible only when we know when to book our flights unlike the train system where the tickets price remains stable and the earliest booking gets a confirmed seat though we cannot commit on the seating comfort. Flights have a different algorithm and so prices vary and the rules of railways just do not apply here. How do we get the best deal in air tickets? Travel search engines such as Skyscanner are a great help in helping us in this effort.  A recent survey of Indian travelers revealed 72% do not know when is the best time to book flights. A survey by Skyscanner unveiled 69% of travellers incorrectly estimate that the best air fares can be found less than 12 weeks before departure, when in fact the best deals are snapped up by travellers who plan in advance.

 An analysis by Skyscanner reveals that a summer trip for Bali for travellers who booked the tickets 25 weeks in advance could save up to 51% and obviously, last minute bookings end up being costlier than the average fare.  Though the percentage of saving is not consistent, a traveler to Malaysia can make a saving of 35% if booked ahead by 24 weeks.

Skyscanner recommends booking 24 weeks in advance for travellers venturing to Europe or the USA for their summer vacations for savings of 22% and 18%, respectively.  Though this might sound to be a smaller percentage compared to the others, the amount we spend is higher and can mean substantial amount of money.


It is interesting to note that Skyscanner is the leading global travel search engine. Its specialty is that it has analyzed two years’ worth of travel search data from over 60 million monthly users to answer the one question that always puzzles travelers: when is the best time to book flights?

Skyscanner also reveals the most inexpensive months to travel to visit some of Indian travellers’ favorite locations. November is the cheapest month to travel to Bangkok when flights 10% cheaper than the average fare, while visa-friendly Bali can be best enjoyed in April with a 10% saving on the average fare. The idea here is to get that extra savings while planning our dream vacations. Why leave the opportunity?

Skyscanner has a highly-rated free mobile app and the popularity of the search engine is evident from the fact that it has been downloaded over 60 million times. Check it out! You might land on a travel deal that might make your wallet heavier for a change.
