The best apps for finding cheap flights

Get the cheapest airfares every time by using the latest airfare aggregation apps.

Nobody likes paying too much for an airfare. Now you can keep your travel costs to a minimum by using any of these apps to find cheap flights.


Airfarewatchdog is a free app for iOS lists the fares of all airlines. You can receive alerts for cheap flights on your favourite routes, search for flight deals and find out where to book for the lowest prices. Deals are verified by Airfarewatchdog’s special “deal hounds”.


Conde Nast rated Fareness the best new app for airfares. The iOS app suits spontaneous travellers who have flexibility with travel dates and destinations.


Hitlist is the perfect iOS app for travellers who have a list of dream vacations and want cheap flights to make them a reality. To find the best deals, you just enter your destinations into the app and Hitlist can tell you when it’s the best time to go. You can receive deals via email or push notifications, all tailored to your top destinations.


Hopper is an iOS and Android app that makes it easy to identify the cheapest dates to fly. Hopper analyses billions of flight prices daily to predict how prices will change and will advise when to buy your tickets.


Skiplagged is another iOS and Android app. It searches not only for tickets where your destination is the final stop, but also where your destination is a stop along another route. That’s because airlines sometimes charge less for tickets where your destination is a layover instead of the final stop. There are a few caveats to travelling this way, like needing to pack only a carry-on or needing to book two one-ways for round trips.
