Trying to figure out where to find cheap flights can be EXHAUSTING. Sometimes you want the flights to magically appear in your email so you can travel without the headache of scrolling through Google Flights or your favorite airline’s website.

If your goal is finding cheap flight tickets, you have to check out one of my favorite travel sites: Scott’s Cheap Flights. They offer the best deals on domestic and international flights, customized according to your preferences and sent directly to your email.

And if you want to keep saving and find the best travel deals, download the KCL app.

 

Sign up to get up to 90% off flights.

Scott’s Cheap Flights offers flight deals that are discounted anywhere from 40-90%, with an average savings of about $550 per ticket.

Deals are sent about 2-9 months before the actual flight (but there’s also the option to get flights that are within the next month with their Weekend Getaway deals).

We got emails with personalized offers the same day we signed up. They’re categorized and come with different city and flight options.

Here are some of the international flight deals we got:

  • Toronto, Canada (reg. $550): $218 from Las Vegas, $275 from LAX
  • Oaxaca, Mexico (reg. $500): $250 from LAX, $255 from San Diego
  • Rhodes, Greece (reg. $1,100+): $455 from LAX, $455 from San Diego, $460 from Las Vegas

Some routes also work as “open-jaw,” which means you can fly into one city and depart from another.

 

Every flight is custom picked for you based on your preferences.

When you sign up for Scott’s Cheap Flights, you’ll be asked to take a quick quiz. You get to choose up to six preferred destination airports and five departure airports. (They offer suggestions of nearby airports, too.)

With each destination you choose you’ll see a “Best Deal Ever” which comes with the best price a Scott’s Cheap Flights deal finder has ever found. For example the “Best Deal Ever” on a roundtrip to Spain from Los Angeles was only $177.

You’ll even get to choose what kinds of flight deals you’re looking for:

  • Economy Class deals: Direct and one-stop flights to destinations around the world
  • First Class, Business, or Premium Economy deals
  • Mistake Fares: Short-lived deals when airlines accidentally slash prices up to 90% off (more on that in a sec).
  • Weekend Getaways: Long weekend trips on non-stop flights in the upcoming month.

 

 

Scott’s Mistake Fares are like glitch deals for plane tickets.

Mistake Fares on Scott’s Cheap Flights are flight tickets that airlines ACCIDENTALLY priced extremely low—about 90% off their usual price. Mistake Fares are the perfect way to get great flight deals, but they usually only last a few hours before they’re changed or taken down by the airline.

So if Scott’s Cheap Flights sends you a Mistake Fare you like, jump on it immediately before it’s gone.

 

Membership is free, but you can upgrade for more deals.

There are three different membership tiers at Scott’s Cheap Flights, and while all memberships come with personalized flight tickets sent directly to your email, some have more perks than others:

Limited (Free)

  • International economy deals

Premium ($49/yr)

  • International economy deals
  • Domestic economy deals
  • Rare bucket-list deals
  • Weekend Getaways
  • Non-stop domestic and quick international flights departing within a month
