How to book the deal

How to use Google Flights and Momondo to find the deals.

I recommend a two step search to first find the cheapest dates and then the best prices:

1. Click the relevant Google Flights link in the list above for the route you want to search. Then in Google Flights click the ‘from’ date to see a calendar of prices with the lowest prices in green.​​​​​​​​ You can change the duration of the trip in the bottom left corner of the calendar.

2. After you’ve found the cheapest dates in Google Flights use these dates in Momondo/Skyscanner to get the absolute best price.​​​​​​​ Why flights are cheaper via Momondo?​​​​​​​

The Momondo/Skyscanner links above take you to Momondo/Skyscanner with the routes and example cheap dates pre-filled for you.

Sample booking on Skyscanner:

Remember prices and availability can change quickly, so if you can’t find the deal it means it’s probably sold out. When you see a deal you’re happy with, book it fast!

If you book one of these deals then please send me an email at and let me know. It’ll make my day!

Happy travelling!
