I feel like we’re all in a situation where we WANT to travel around the world, but unfortunately either don’t have the time or money to partake in said travel. Well, do I have some good ass sites for you to save in your bookmarks folder!
The first is Secret Flying!
Secret Flying is a GOD SEND. I have found so many awesome deals through this site, specifically my flight from LA to Tokyo Roundtrip for only 500 dollars. To put that in perspective, most flights from LA to Japan are about 1,000 or more depending on the time of year.
Shit, I looked up what my city is offering right now, and I could go to Rome for under 400 bucks right now.
That’s crazy! It has systems in place to find flights specific to your city as well.
Secret Flying has a app too!
The next site I recommend is Skiplagged! This acts a lot like Google Flights, only it allows you to adjust little details like date and stops to get a better rate. The best way to game this it to put your dates you’d be willing to travel, say between August and September, and then look for the slider at the top that looks like so:
You then adjust your depart and return for a good deal.
Skiplagged ALSO has an app!
The next is:
I don’t have much experience with this one, but I think the way it works is that it sends you personalized emails for where and when you wanna go, and sends you deals corresponding to those dates. But it looks like they’ve updated it.
I know this comes off like an ad, but I have had personal friends thank me for showing them stuff like Secret Flying. It’s definitely a lifestyle, being able to buy a flight in a specific time frame, but if this kind of thing appeals to you it is well worth it.
Traveling opens your perspective to so many different things. I know it’s rough to afford to travel, so I hope you can find something good and cheap.
