Best flight search engines & websites

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 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.

Unusual flight search websites – lets you search for any destination given an departure city & a budget – allows 30 days search – client app to search flights – articles warning you about special deals – i.e. both ways Europe to Southeast Asia for 200€ (recommended by my friend Chris) – emails you when an airline makes a mistake or offers a great sale (again recommended by my friend Chris) – “Add stopovers to your flights to discover the world” – “The ultimate travel hack. Fly on standby”
