Travel can be expensive but it doesn’t have to be. People always ask me how I get to travel often. One of the reasons is because i get to watch my flights and book them on skyscanner.com. I came across sky scanner last year and I have been hooked since. It felt like the travel gods smiled on me 🙂
Skyscanner.com http://bit.ly/2q0XUWh is different from other travel sites because they built a full travel search engine where you can explore different travel destinations based on your dates and destination. Flexibility and open mindedness definitely helps because the cheaper places available to travel to might not be where you want to go at that time. You can also book hotel and car rental on this site as well (All your travel needs in one place, what a joy) 🙂
Once you are on the site, go to the Explore tab, click on “Everywhere” then plug in your desired departure city. You will see all the top-flight deals locally and internationally flying out from your location plus their prices which goes from lowest to highest. This way you can easily book a cheap flight to the particular location.
Still under the explore tab, you can plug in a location where you desire to go and get the dates that are cheaper to fly there, recommended destinations from your location, best deals by month, and the cheapest weekend deals from your location. Lastly, you can also watch an airfare and get notifications when there is a price change.
These features are what makes sky scanner a budget traveler’s best friend. It assists in watching airfare and sending notifications when price drops so one can book the ticket asap. It also gives you options on where and when to go for cheap which saves a whole lot of money.
Beside these amazing features, you will never have to enter your credit card information on their website or app. When you are ready to book, you’ll be directed straight to the airline or travel site to book. Skyscanner partners with numerous global partners to find you the best deals on the web, which is why they are a game changing company.
If you prefer to browse flights on your phone, they also have an app that you can download here http://bit.ly/2pjiyR7 This app offers the same features as the website and you get to book a watched airfare as soon as price goes down since your phone is usually handy.

Live Inexpensively Always,
*I have partnered with Skyscanner to spread the word about this awesome travel search engine. I use skyscanner myself and won’t suggest any product that isn’t beneficial.
