Looking for a cheap flight to escape the winter or flee your country coz your new president is a douchebag?Well, here are a few links to help you reach that goal without ruining yourself: flight search engines, unusual websites & much more.
The more flexible you are with your travel dates the better.
Be aware that if you buy connecting flights yourself (not as part of a one-time payment), you might want to add 24+ hours between these flights.
Note that I have not yet used all these services. In any doubt, I recommend asking feedback from previous customers on travel.stackexchange.com or other online travel forums.
You don’t need a return flight. You need a proof of onward travel though: a ticket proving you will leave the country (by air, land, or sea). A couple of links below will help you for that 😉
I almost forgot: I you really want to flee your country, you may want to become a digital nomad 😉
Enough talking, let’s get down to business.
