Quite a few of you are probably planning to travel for the holidays to visit your family or friends. Finding affordable tickets for flight is not always an easy task, which is why we've singled out some apps that may help you out with that. 7 out of eight apps down below will help you get the best tickets possible, while one of them is a bit different, though it will still help you check for flights… in a different way. Some of these apps actually do much more than just check for flight tickets, so read on if you're interested, but before you do, note that the apps down below are not listed in any specific order, so it doesn't mean that the first one is the best, or anything of the sort, it will all depend on your personal needs.
Cheap Flights – FareFirst
FareFirst is one of the more popular apps for finding cheap flights online. This app comes with a really clean UI, and in addition to helping you find cheap flights, it can also help you find the very best hotel deals in the area that you're planning to travel to. FareFirst will also show you real-time flight status, so you'll be able to track that as well. This app will scan a ton of popular agencies out there, including Cheapticket, Expedia, FlightNetwork, My trip, Tripsta, Kiwi, and a ton more, including popular airlines such as Emirates, Qatar Airways, American Airlines, and so on, in order to show you the very best deals possible. This app is also free to use.
Skyscanner is quite possibly the most popular app for finding cheap flight online, at least one of the most popular ones. In addition to being able to find the very best flights out there, this app will also help you find the cheapest or best hotels (it's your call) and car rentals out there, so it's an all-in-one app, basically. You can search and compare all the deals that are available in order to see which one(s) suit you best. This app has been downloaded well over 100,000 times, and it does contain ads, but it's free to use, and those ads are non-obstructive.
Much like Skyscanner, KAYAK is also an app which not only helps you find flights that best suit you, but also helps you get the best hotel and car rental deals. This app is also really well designed, and navigating it is not a problem at all. KAYAK also allows you to filter various options, such as stops, airlines, departure times, amenities, and so much more. This app also includes a price forecast, as it will predict if the price tickets will go up in the future or not. KAYAK comes with ads, but much like with Skyscanner, though ads are not obtrusive.
Flightradar24 is considerably different than all the other apps on this list, as this app is not here to help you find the best flight ticket prices, but to help you track your flight. You can use this app to see your plane move on the map in real time, while it also lets you see flight information. You can tap on a plane in order to see various flight details, while this app also keeps flight history for airplanes, up to 90 days. You will even be able to see the current weather for over 3,000 airports shown on the map in this application, and the app is free to use, though you can get the "Gold' version for many more features.
Jetradar is an app that will scan and compare hundreds of airlines and travel agencies in order to show you the best available deals. It will scan regular, charter, and low-cost airlines for you, while you can explore options via the "Price map", as the company calls it. If you're using this app on multiple devices, the app comes with a built-in sync, so you can basically access all the info on your profile from whatever device you want. Flight statistics are included in the app as well, while there are a ton of filtering options that you can choose from. It is also worth noting that this app is free to use, but it comes with ads.
Last Minute Flights Booking
Last Minute Flights Booking app is actually kind of self-explanatory, even though it doesn't exactly work only for last-minute flights, this app can help you get cheap flights in advance as well. It will scan dozens of airlines and travel agencies including Expedia, CheapOair, Vayama, Bravofly, Tripsta, and so on. This app also supports all currencies and 30 languages, while the best hotel search engine is available in the app as well. There are some filters you can switch on here as well, and the app looks really nice, it's very clean-looking.
Cheap Air Tickets
Cheap Air Tickets is a good alternative to a number of other apps that we've mentioned on this list, even though it's much newer, and considerably less popular than most other apps on the list. This app is currently in version 1.2, but it's really good at finding cheap air tickets, as its name says. This app will also scan a number of sources in order to get you the best deals, while its design is similar to a number of other apps on the list as well. This app, however, does not come with ads, nor in-app purchases.
Kiwi is quite a popular app for finding affordable flights to book, and it will also offer you some exclusive flight deals from time to time. This app also comes with the price calendar which will help you compare price tickets, so that you can plan in advance when is it the best time to travel, if you have options, of course. Kiwi also has an extensive customer support in 17 languages, which is not something you'll find almost anywhere else. This app is free to use, it does not come with ads, nor anything of the sort.
