BLACK Friday is a week away which means your inbox is will be flooded with emails on deals and offers for your next holiday.
Skyscanner has come up with some simple steps on how to sift through the spam and find the best flight deals.
1. Search by month, not day
If you already have a destination in mind but you can be flexible about dates then this hack is for you.
By looking at a whole month instead of specific days, you can see when the flights will be the cheapest.
Once airlines release their Black Friday deals, the prices will appear alongside all other flight options, so you can sift through them quickly and bag the best bargain.
2. Book flexible tickets
Despite travel becoming much easier in recent months, going on holiday can still be unpredictable.
By booking flexible tickets, you can easily make changes to your booking if something unexpected happens.
On that note, it is definitely worth having travel insurance, as an extra way to protect your holiday.
Enjoy peace of mind knowing that if anything changes, you can get your trip back on track.
3. Know where you can go and what you need to get there
Sticking with the Covid theme, make sure you know exactly what documentation you need to enter your chosen holiday destination.
Proof of vaccination, passenger locator forms and pre-booking Covid test kits are just some of the things you might need before you can get onboard your flight.
Keeping on top of the ever-changing travel restrictions is tough, but it is worth it to avoid lengthy queues, stressful airport check-ins and having to rebook flights.
It’s also worth keeping an eye on the government travel website for the latest information on what you need to do to keep your holiday running smoothly.
4. Don’t clock watch
Skyscanner has a price alert feature on its website, so you don’t need to keep checking for price updates.
Most Black Friday deals won’t last long, so if you want to make sure you get the best offers possible, set up flight alerts before the sales all begin.
Many airlines release their prices in the days leading up to Black Friday, so don’t wait until the day to get hunting.
