Air transport is a competitive market. You find hereunder a selection of specialized sites that compare prices from different airlines and give you the opportunity to book online the best deals, with instant confirmation. All of them are reliable, high quality travel sites. Visit a few of them and get the best deals. Prices include airport charges and taxes. In the European Union, quoted airfares must legally include airport charges and taxes. Getting the cheapest air tickets is not merely a matter of website. You also had better book early and be flexible. Read more tips: click here.

As for flexibility, you would be well advised to use the search option "See calendar of lowest fares" of Matrix Airfare Search (ITA) since this non-commercial site enables you to find the cheapest price in a 30-day period.

If you want to fly with a low-cost airline (also known as no-frills airline), keep in mind that such an airline usually charges you for many additional services including luggage, food, check in, seat reservation, and more. Skyscanner includes low cost airlines in the search results while Opodo has a dedicated search option for those “cheap flights”.

However, those no-frills airlines as well as the charter airlines (which serve many holiday destinations) are not or not properly included in most travel sites. In such a case, you may want to visit directly the web site of that low cost carrier. Be aware also that low cost airlines sometimes fly to 
airports that are far away from city center.

Since low cost airlines are very successful, some other airlines start charging also services such as luggage. That is why Expedia and Ebookers provide you with information on this matter (see "luggage fee information" along any flight details at Expedia and "airline fees" at Ebookers).

Some of the sites hereunder quote prices in US Dollars while the other ones do so in British Pounds or in Euros. A few sites allow you to choose the currency or they fix the currency according to your own localization. Anyway, payments are always made in your own currency at the current exchange rate. If needed, you can check current exchange rates with currency converters such as oanda and
