Finding Great Value Flights on HolidayGuru.ie

We here at HolidayGuru know it can be hard to find great value flights and there are certain tricks and tips that can help you out when it comes to taking the stress out of searching. We are constantly on the lookout for flights that will have you smiling from ear to ear. When it comes to finding cheap flights it doesn't have to mean searching for the most budget airline, sometimes you can get lucky with certain things like Error fares and certain sales. These are some of the tips and tricks that I use when trying to find the best value with flights.

What are the best places to fly from in Ireland? | Being flexible about where you fly from | How do we search for Flights? | Error fares - the ultimate way to save

What are the best places to fly from in Ireland?

When it comes to finding the best deal on a flight sometimes you have to be flexible on where you fly from. Dublin is the most popular airport by far but if you consider other airports in Ireland you can seriously snag yourself some sets of cheap flights. If you're willing to have a transfer in the middle of your travel, you can really bring the price down when you are booking your holiday. The great thing about it is you don't have to do the searching. You just relax and we can check for the cheapest airport for all of our deals!

Flying from Dublin

Perhaps the most obvious one but Dublin is popular for a reason. It is served by tons of airlines and what that means for you is that you can take advantage of some of the best value around. There are obvious airlines like Ryanair and Aer Lingus that offer some great value and you can get some seriously cheap flights with them. There most common intercontinental airlines that fly from Dublin are United, Emirates, British Airways and Lufthansa. These are the bread a butter airlines if you're looking for cheap flights to the far east and a lot of long haul areas like the United states.

Flying from Cork

When it comes to flying not all of us can make our way to the big city. Don't fret though the option is there to fly from Cork airport. Not the most obvious choice for most of us but Cork airport can offer some great destinations in situations when getting to Dublin airport just isn't practical. There are four major airlines that fly from Cork airport that offer cheap flights, they are Ryanair, Jet2, Aer Lingus and Wizz Air. These airlines allow people in Munster to fly to many destinations across Europe and the United Kingdom. Each of these carriers offers some great value to people and can be a great alternative to Dublin.

Flying from Shannon

Shannon is another option for those of us that don't live too close to Dublin airport. It is a well-serviced airport and a number of major airlines offer regular flights to the airport. The main airlines that offer cheap flights that depart from this airport are Aer Lingus, Ryanair and British Airways. This airport is highly convenient for people who don't want to travel too much in order to get a nice bit of value for their holiday.

Being flexible about where you fly from

Perhaps the best tip I can offer you is that you need to be flexible about when you fly. Sometimes the cheapest dates to fly are at certain times that wouldn't be the most obvious. Factors that indicate the price of flights can be things like the time of year or something as simple as the time of the week. If you're more willing to get up early or travel late you can find some great value and very cheap flights.

Last Minute Flights

Another great way to save yourself a bit of money but also might be a bit riskier is booking last minute flights. If you're really flexible about where you fly from you can get some serious value when it comes to last-minute flights. If you stayed tuned to our deal ticker or even keep on eye on our newsletter you can get some really cheap flights to some fairly far-flung places. Last minute flights can be as far away as New York or it could be something simple like a city break to a place like London.

How do we search for Flights?

Obviously, our main goal when it comes to flights to find the very best value money can buy. The way in which we find this amazing value is by checking a number of websites such as Skyscanner and Momondo. We check these websites every day in order to find the best possible deals for you and your family. The best way that we find is to have email alerts set up and notifications for travel websites. However, if you want to avoid getting your inbox stuffed with lots of different emails you can just sign up for our Whatsapp alerts and sign up for our newsletter.

Open Jaw Flights - Another Way to Get Value

Another option for some people who are looking to get some great value and explore is to book open jaw flights. What is open jaw you ask? Well, essentially what you do is book a one-way ticket and only book your flight home when you're ready to come home. For example, you could book a flight to Berlin and plan on travelling around and flying home from Paris. This is perfect for those who really want to explore and when you're flexible about when you are coming back you can really get some serious value for yourself. You can really make sure that you get some cheap flights for yourself on your travels. You don't commit to a certain price so you can really spot the value that suits you the most!

Error fares - the ultimate way to save

You also might see some error fares too that I'll post. You've probably seen this term before and you're wondering what exactly these fares are, but it's pretty much as exactly as it sounds - a mistake on the provider's part! Perhaps they missed a digit off when entering the prices on their website, or it was simply a mistype. Either way, you can sometimes get yourself a flight for a freakishly low price. It's not without its risks, but sometimes these gambles really pay off, so it's worth checking back and seeing if I've got one for you! If you want to know more about how these error fares work, then I've got a great article that gives you the low-down over at my Travel Magazine.
