If you want a cheap last-minute flight, don’t be (too) picky about the destination. When you book your flight with Skyscanner, you don’t need to have an exact destination in mind. Just search “Everywhere” and find amazing places to go for the best deals available in the coming days, weeks, or months.

We recommend having your Skyscanner price alerts set up in case there is a particular place you do want to go. With price alerts, we’ll do the hard work for you, and tell you when the price of your flight has dropped and you can catch the best deal!

2. Be Flexible on the Days You Fly

It’s a common perception that the cheapest days to fly are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. While there might be some truth to this, why not rely on the facts? In both the ‘depart’ and ‘return’ sections of the Skyscanner homepage, select ‘Whole Month’ and click on ‘Cheapest Month’ and then select ‘Search Flights’. Look for the green prices (green means the cheapest deals!) and go for it.

3. Frequently Check Skyscanner’s Best Flight Deals of The Day

Check our Daily Flight Deals Page for the latest deals on all flights domestic and international from Canada. We update this page daily to help you save on your next flight! There’s a table for all domestic flights and another for deals on international destinations. 

Important To Know:

*Flight Prices are updated daily. Savings indicated are based on the percentage difference in price between the deal shown and the median price for the route. Limited availability. Subject to change.

4. Last-minute Deals: Book the Cheapest Airline

When it comes to last-minute air travel, say goodbye to loyalty! You can spend hundreds of thousands of miles that took you years to earn for this single trip, or you can simply go with the airline that offers you the best deal. With Skyscanner, our search tool automatically lists the flight results from least expensive to the most, so you don’t have to waste time comparing the best fares on different websites.

5. Use the ‘Maps’ Feature

Click on our ‘Maps’ feature to find and compare cheap flights around the world. From the ‘Price’ dropdown menu, use the sliding scale to select your budget and see what cities you can go to within your price range.

We all know that time is money. The Maps feature not only filters by price, but it also filters through non-stop and 1+ stops routes. If you want to get to where you’re going fast, just look for the green dots (non-stop flights) within your budget.
