  • There are lots of tools available online to help you
    find the cheapest flights available at any given time.
  • The best app for booking cheap flights is travel
    booking site Skyscanner, which has a unique search
    feature 
  • When searching for a flight, put in your dates and
    “Everywhere” for the destination; Skyscanner will then list all
    flights on those dates by price.

 

Sometimes, when you are planning a vacation, where to go isn’t
the most important part of the equation.

For me, any number of factors can determine the destination: Is
it relaxing? Is it interesting? Is it exotic? Have I been there
before? If a destination hits any of those factors, I could be
interested — as long as airfare is the right price. 

While planning a recent vacation with no concrete destination in
mind, I hit upon one of the best secrets in travel.

For those in the know, SkyScanner is one of the best travel
booking sites on the planet
. It searches through hundreds of
different booking and airline sites to find you the best deals,
but somehow it always seems to find cheaper international flights
than other travel sites like Expedia or Kayak. In addition it has
great features like airfare graphs to let you know whether you
should buy now or wait for prices to drop.

SkyScanner’s best secret, however, is for people who aren’t too
picky about the destination: It lets you search for flights all
over the world to find the cheapest destination to fly
into. 




To search for flights all over the world, simply go to the
SkyScanner flight search page and enter the city you are flying out of in the “From”
box and then type in “Everywhere” in the “To” box.

Next, put in your desired dates
and hit “Search.” SkyScanner will then search all the available
flights on those dates and give you every option ordered by
price.

Just in the quick search above, I found sub-$400 airfare to hot
travel destinations like Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Mexico,
and St. Maarten. Cheap US flights on those dates include Florida
(Orlando, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale), Chicago, and
Texas. If your dates are
flexible, try out a few different searches.

There are also great
last-minute deals. In August, I found a $350 round-trip ticket to
Stockholm, Sweden, for just two weeks later. It’s usually
impossible to fly round-trip to Europe for anything less than
$800.
