Using Skyscanner

Go to Skyscanner, turn on the search everywhere feature and simply look to see what place seems to be going at the cheapest prices. The engine even has a map of the world laid out with popular, cheap destinations flagged. Alternatively, if you have a specific place in mind, using the month view for price can make things even easier. You can also choose the cheapest month option. You’ll see what day of the year has the lowest price, and simply buy.

What do low prices look like?

Skyscanner is just about the most powerful travel research tool on Earth. This means that if there is a low price out there, you’ll find it. If the prices don’t go as low as you’d like, you can always set up an alert. If you’re flying to Chicago, for instance, flights are as cheap as C$88 in September 2017 and C $55 December. If the idea of going to Philadelphia tickles you, prices are as low as $79 in October 2017.

The great thing about using cheap, open-ended search searches is, you can actually surprise yourself. Maybe you never thought of going to Niagara Falls, but at $60 in a given month, you wonder why you shouldn’t go on a whim. It’s a wonderful thing to go where the prices seem to suggest you should go.
