Skyscanner also allows you to indicate which deals you are interested in, and get email notifications when there are promos or discounts. This feature is unique to Skyscanner and you can’t get it anywhere else.

But how is Skyscanner able to give travelers the best deal? By analyzing when the best time is to travel. And the best news is, they are more than willing to share this information with us! Talk about a win-win situation.

For example, their analysis of data from 2012 to present shows that it is best to travel to Hong Kong in July (just in time for their sale!) and it’s cheapest to fly to Singapore in February.

Other tips from Skyscanner: Want to experience winter in Japan? Book a flight in November and you’re sure to get the most bang for your buck. November is also the best time to travel to the USA and Thailand if you want to get the best deals.

They also recommend that travelers book at least five months before their preferred travel date to get the best deals. When booking for the USA, for example, try to purchase the ticket as much as six months before you flight.

And all this information can now be browsed for free, thanks to SafeZone and Smart!
