For avid travellers who delight in snapping up flight deals, you need to know how to ‘find cheap flights to anywhere.‘ As the title suggests, you need to be flexible if you want to secure bargain bucket flights. Rather than selecting an exact date to visit a specific destination, it pays to come up with a shortlist.
Select 4 or 5 destinations that you would like to visit and if possible, be flexible on dates. The more flexible you are on destination and dates, the more likely it is that you will bag yourself a bargain. Then search flights to anywhere and jet off smug in the knowledge that you bagged an incredible deal.
There are a bunch of ways in which you can find cheap flights to anywhere, but I’m going to focus on just two today.
Two ways to find cheap flights to anywhere
Skyscanner’s search flights to anywhere feature
Skyscanner‘s search flights to anywhere feature allows you to input set dates and then see what bargains you can find.
Simply input your destination airport, or if you want to increase your chance of finding cheap flights to anywhere, pop in United Kingdom.
This brings up a list of options and highlights the start prices for each. You can then quickly discount any which don’t fall into budget.
For more information, click on the country that interests you and a list of country destinations and prices pops up. It also highlights whether flights are direct or with connections. This is clearly very important if you want a quick weekend getaway. To streamline the process you can simply tick ‘direct flights only’ in the top left of the screen.
You can see in this example that there are some cracking deals to Denmark for just £20.
If you click on the arrow on the right of the screen, it will indicate which airports you can fly from and the prices. Damn, it doesn’t look like I will be going to Copenhagen in March after all! Look at the difference between those Manchester and London flight prices!
Once you find flights that appeal, simply select them and Skyscanner redirects you to the relevant website to book. Pack your bags!!
Another way to take the hassle out of your hunt to find cheap flights to anywhere is to join Jack’s Flight Club.
Jack’s Flight Club
Jack’s Flight Club takes the work out of finding cheap flights to anywhere in the world. The Club launched in 2016 and now has over 1,500,000 subscribers. They must be doing something right! After all, they’ve saved members over £30 million since launch.
3 steps to success with Jack’s Flight Club
Sign up for alerts and you will receive regular emails packed with inspiration and amazing flight deals.
Free members receive 6 – 8 emails a month but cannot filter by departure airport. However, at only £35 for an annual membership, surely it is worth paying to become a member? Just one booking and you make your money back in spades! Plus, you are more likely to find a cheap flight to anywhere in the world. You might even be inspired to visit somewhere you had never previously considered.
Here’s an example email. Costa Rica is on my bucket list so I was desperate to check this one out. Flights from Manchester for only £377? Where is my passport???
Premium members receive between 25 and 40 emails a month depending on the departure airports you select. The only problem is you might get slightly frustrated that you can’t take advantage of all the deals. Already I’ve seen some incredible bargains to my bucket list destinations but simply do not have any available holiday leave to take advantage of the offers!! I know…time for a pity party!!!
Premium membership also gives you other benefits like weekend breaks notifications. Here’s an example email with flights conveniently shown by UK location.
Wait for an incredible deal that appeals to drop into your inbox. Jack’s Flight Club will scour the internet to find you the best cheap flights to anywhere on the planet. They will hunt down huge discounts, hidden offers and error fares for long and short haul flights from both budget and scheduled airlines.
Jack’s Flight Club can save you ridiculous amounts on flights, typically over £400 per ticket! Here are some examples of recent deals they have found for members.
Now, at those prices, I must confess I am almost tempted to fly economy. Seriously? £261 to Tokyo!!! That is crazy!! But, what if you want to fly Business Class or First?
Business and first class options
There is no facility currently to specify business or first. You will simply need to wait for those email alerts and then switch the search to the class of travel you would like.
Step three – how to book cheap flights to anywhere
Once you find a cheap flight to anywhere that you like, click on the link next to the itinerary. Google flights will then show you available flights.
Go to the calendar tool and look for the fares highlighted in green which are the lowest fares. Beware, flight deals can go fast so you might not be able to find the exact fare that is indicated in your email. Assuming you find prices that you are happy with, follow the instructions to book your cheap flight to anywhere on Earth.
Can I really find cheap flight deals to anywhere?
But does it work, I hear you cry. Or is it just some whizzy website that sounds amazing but fails to deliver?
As I say, you need to move fast with these deals. There’s no facility on Jack’s Flight Club to search from their website. The service all revolves around the emails so if you dally in checking out the deals, they likely will have gone. If, like me, that would simply be your cue to go ahead and search other options, that isn’t going to work with this membership subscription. You can’t set up alerts for specific destinations (other than on Google flights, and even then, only if you input specific dates). On the plus side however, you may be inspired to consider somewhere you had not thought of previously.
When I received the email above and immediately clicked on the link flights were available at just £1 higher than the price quoted in the email. If only I had some spare holiday to take advantage of the deal!
Anyway, who cares what I think? Here is what satisfied members are saying about the Club!
Let’s be fair it is their opinion that counts. But with savings of over £30 million, what have you got to lose? Sign up for the free membership and then trial an upgrade and see if it can pay dividends.
So there you have it! Two ways to find super cheap flight deals to just about anywhere on the planet. What are you waiting for? Check them out and let us know what you think.
