How to find cheap flights

Do you work Monday – Friday? Are you bored of doing the same thing every weekend? Are you sick of throwing money away and having nothing to show for it?

…..Now is the time to stop & make a change. There is so much more to life than Monday to Friday. Let’s start living, plan adventures and explore this wonderful world!

There are so many beautiful places in the world to explore, with such a short flight to European cities, why not go and explore a new destination, rather than blow £100 on a night out!?

Friday to Sunday flights are so easy to find, especially using Skyscanner:

The Skyscanner app is great, you can search for all UK flights on any dates, it will give you the cheapest fare option, cheapest airport, cheapest date, cheapest destination – They literally compare everything for you, saving so much time in finding a great value fare!

How do you search the worlds flights month by month? It’s easy! Simply select ‘whole month’ in the departures section. You can also search for the whole world, there is no need to enter a destination! You can type ‘UK’ in the from box and then add ‘everywhere’ in the destination box. If you are flexible with when/where you travel, It really helps to find the best price and start planning your getaway around the airline fares.

I have previously booked a flight to Sri Lanka for £320 flying with Virgin & Fly Dubai using the above technique. Milan for £32, Norway over the Bank Holiday weekend for £52. (I usually aim to book Bank Holiday dates around 4/5 months in advance, that tends to be the best priced fares!) Barcelona for £30, Dublin for £7 & Paris for £22 – Cheap fares are there to be had!

I have so many more #SkyscannerRoulettes left to play….Where too next?!

HIT LIST: Sweden, Iceland, Austria, Montenegro, Copenhagen & Italian cities – I’m aiming for all for under £40. Wish me luck!

You can download the Skyscanner app here: iTunes: Google Play:

    This is such a great idea. I NEVER think of little weekend getaways via Sky Scanner yet always book my long haul flights through them! Looking forward to reading about the trip X

      I didn’t until recently either – The flights are SO cheap, if you’re flexible, they can be £9 one way….!

    Excellent, I love to see posts encouraging this sort of thing. In fact, I devoted an entire post about it entitled “living to work, why I refuse”

    It seems we share the same sentiment with regards to the 9-5 same old same. Keep it up.
