Find the best deals

With Omio, you can compare and book flights with ease, but here are some ways to make sure you grab the best deal when booking your trip.

  • Be flexible when choosing your departure date and time. Flying out on Friday morning and back on a Sunday night is usually the most expensive option.
  • Check the distance and route between the airport and the city you’re visiting. Some airports are located miles from the city centre and the journey might not be convenient or cheap—booking a more expensive flight to a central airport might be worthwhile when you consider additional costs.
  • Travel with hand baggage only. If you need to bring a cabin bag, make sure to book your bags at the time of booking, as it's cheaper than adding a bag later.
  • Search for your outbound and return flights together and separately. Booking your journey with two different airlines might be a cheaper option!
  • Keep an eye out for special offers or flash sales. Omio also offers discount codes from time to time.
