For flexible travelers, Google Flights is a godsend. The site lets you play around with dates and destinations, and displays a map with flight prices based on search criteria, allowing travelers to eye the locales with the least-expensive flights for the determined time period. Instead of playing around with filters for hours on end, here are a few tips to keep in mind in order to find the cheapest flights on Google Flights.

 

First, pay attention to the calendar tool. If your dates are flexible and you don’t enter any before searching, Google Flights will automatically fill in this field with a predetermined length of stay. Adjust the dates and preferred length of stay to generate new results, and set flight filters to either non-stop or with layovers.

 

If your destination is as flexible as your dates, enter your departure city and use the Explore tool to find suggested cheap flights to nearby destinations. Once you select a destination from the map, you can then choose whether you’re interested in a weekend trip, one-week trip or a two-week trip in a specific month or in any month within the next six months. If you know you want to leave the country, select the broader geographical filters like Europe or South America.

 

A final Google Flights tool to test is the price graph. Once destinations are selected, the price graph displays the flight price over time and lets travelers compare costs if they were to leave one day before or one day after the indicated dates.
