There are many sites out there that provide deals on flights.

Sites like Kayak offers search results from hundreds of airlines and third party sites. To the question, "How Do I Find The Best Deals On Kayak," on their Frequently Asked Question page, they say,

A simple flight search at https://www.kayak.com/flights scans for prices on hundreds of travel sites in seconds. We gather flight deals from across the web and put them in one place. Then on the search results page you can use various filters to compare options for the same flight and easily choose the best flight deal from all of the deals coming straight from the travel sites to your screen, with no extra fee from KAYAK.

There should be many more travel sites offering similar facility for search. The question is do they really work as claimed? Is there more to be done to get the best deal on flights?

What has been your experience with these sites? What other ways are there to find the best flight deals?

Thanks for your contribution to the discussion.

Be flexible with your destination, dates and times. Use budget airlines, don't fly direct, sign-up for airline newsletters and look out for special deals such as last-minute deals, use multiple search engines and use points and miles.

That should cover most of the tips to find the best flight deal.
