Why do flight prices change?
If you don’t find the perfect flight immediately, don’t worry. Keep checking back. There are many factors that influence the cost of flights, which can change from one minute to the next. Things like how quickly the flight is booking up, how close to the departure date it is, and even the price of oil can influence what you might pay from one day to the next.

Is it easier to book flights online?
Booking flights online is by far the easiest way to buy your airline ticket. By using online flight comparison tools, you eliminate the need to visit airlines’ websites individually to get prices, saving you loads of time. You can choose from up to hundreds of options at one time, which you won’t get anywhere else, even if you go to a travel agent. You can also compare flight prices side-by-side, making it easy to see which flights are the cheapest and what the different flights’ benefits are, like luggage allowances and layover times.
