Use the 4 Apps to find best travel deals

I am often asked by my readers and close friends and family, how do you manage to travel so often? This is a question I have been asked so many times I have perfected a response, apps. When they look confused I then explain further, I am a deal hunter and these apps help. So who am I able to find the best travel deals on the planet, well lets discuss.

Skycanner

Founded in 2001 this meta search engine is a fare aggregator and is based in Scotland. Since I was introduced to the site a few years back, I have been utilising it to find the best deals. I think it is the best fare aggregator in the field and has helped me find some incredible deals. What I love about the site is the recommendations of places you can check out. The explore section of the website/app is my best friend as its allowed me to visit new places. Places I never had on my bucket list but have added and been because of this website. I also love that I can monitor prices for my chosen dates of travel to find the lowest deal.

Ryanair

An Irish low cost airline based in Dublin with operational bases in Stansted and was founded in 1984. Almost 95% of my travels across Europe are with Ryanair because their flight deals are beyond affordable. I have managed to purchase tickets as cheap is £5 single to Toulouse, France and £7.99 to Warsaw, Poland. Many people are often shocked when I tell them how cheap my flights are and often I check on Skyscanner first. Though I find the flights on Skycanner I prefer to book directly on Ryanair and have signed up to newsletters.

Groupon

An American world wide ecommerce business that offers local deals including travel  in 15 countries. I was often sceptical about Groupon because of a few bad experiences with some merchants. But I decided to give it a chance last year and managed to bag some incredible deals off them. I am currently searching for some incredible deals for the Lake District and Cornwall to visit this year.

Expedia

Most of my friends swear by Expedia as being the best place to search for good deals. I wasn’t convinced until this year when I founded an incredible deal for Seoul then for Marseille. Every time I looked on the website I did not find ‘affordable deals’ but now I do which I love. The biggest thing for me is that I can earn nectar points from some flights and hotels.

And there you have it, the four apps that I use to find the best travel deals across the globe.

Do you use any of these apps? What’s the best deal you ever found?

    I only heard of sky scanner a couple of years ago and it is such a clever app to use for travel. I was amazed at how much cheaper you could get flights. A must have for anyone.

    Oh I love groupon! Love all and any offers !

    I’m familiar with all of them except Skyscanner. Groupon is my favourite and I must confess I’ve never thought to keep a keen eye on it for travel deals.

    Awesome!! I will be in Europe soon so Ryanair it is!

    I’ve never heard of Ryanair or Skyscanner, but they sound super interesting. I’m going to have to take a look further at them 🙂

  9. May 17, 2018 / 5:01 am

    I use Expedia all the time. I have never used skyscanner. I will definitely consider all of these for a travel deal the next time that I travel.

    I have booked alot of trips on Expedia but didn’t realize that you can book travel on Groupon as well. I love groupon for their great deals.

  11. May 16, 2018 / 10:35 pm

    Ryanair get a lot of crap but they’re a good price. I love Skyscanner too,

  12. May 16, 2018 / 6:51 pm

    I use some of these apps a lot as I am always on the go but I didn’t know about a couple – I am always looking for the best deals so will definitely be checking them out

    I’ve used Expedia before but haven’t heard of the other ones. Thanks for sharing

    Expedia is great, I use it to book most of my travels for the past few years. Wondering product.

  15. May 16, 2018 / 6:51 am

    We used to buy a lot of things from Groupon. They do have such awesome deals.

  16. May 15, 2018 / 11:00 pm

    It’s always good to compare notes on what working best for people – everything changes so quickly these days. Expedia has worked well for me in the past, and there’s always something useful on Groupon.

    Great tips. One of the best tips I’ve found is using google for airfares. Not only will it show the price differential over the month but you can get to view hotel fares in the area you are looking for and more.

    I’ve used all of these, Expedia tends to be the best for me! Two apps I’ve been looking at obsessively recently if you like the idea of a “surprise” trip are LuckyTrip – you put in your budget and duration and it creates a random holiday for you that includes flights, accommodation and one “activity”. You can spin the wheel as many times as you like and save your favourites. The second is called Srprs.me, and this one you book a mystery trip (again you set budget/duration) and they tell you at the airport where you’re going! My friend has been on 3 srprs.me trips and loves them, I have yet to try it but I will do this year!

    Oh I love Skycanner and Groupon, especially for travel deals as they can always help you find the best travel deals abroad and even in the same country that you live in. I quite fancy a summer holiday saying that! Hopefully I can win the lottery aha!

  20. May 14, 2018 / 7:38 pm

    I spend so much time on skyscanner! Love the app and the website! i always go there before booking a flight and often end up on ryan air ahah!

  21. May 14, 2018 / 7:14 pm

    I have a travel bug right now. Saving money is always a good thing.

  22. May 14, 2018 / 5:46 pm

    I actually have had great luck with priceline, too. Definitely expedia. I’ve not tried your other recommendations, though, so I will. I love to travel.

  23. May 14, 2018 / 3:08 pm

    I’ve used Expedia before but haven’t heard of the other ones. I must try for our upcoming trips. Thanks for sharing

  24. May 14, 2018 / 1:32 pm

    Oo thank you for these! I’m always looking for helpful apps. I do use Expedia already, plus Groupon since I love deals!

  25. May 14, 2018 / 12:06 pm

    I have to download Ryanair. I’m in Europe and this app seems very useful for Europe travel.

  26. May 14, 2018 / 11:19 am

    Groupon is extremely popular in Malaysia and Singapore. Using this app, I had the opportunity to try many new products and services.
