Buying cheap round-trip flights
Want to buy a cheap round trip flight but don't know where to start? At Alternative Airlines, we've come up with a few different ways that you can quickly and easily find the cheapest round trip flights on our site, so that you don't have to waste time scrolling through flight results comparing different prices.
Find cheap flights with our calendar
Our calendar highlights which days are the cheapest to fly on both your outbound and return journey. If you're flexible about when you can find, this can save you a lot of time as you don't have to compare different dates and can rest assured that you're looking at the cheapest time to fly.
Find which flights have the 'lowest price'
Once you've found the cheapest day for your round-trip flights, it's also really easy to find the cheapest flights on those days.
All you need to do is sort your flight results by 'Lowest Price', which can be done under the 'Sort By' section, as shown in the screenshot below. This will then pull all of the cheapest flights on your chosen days to the top of the flight results.
Tip: The cheapest flight isn't always the most convenient flight. In some cases, flights can be cheaper if they take an indirect route that will force you to make unnecessary connections with long waiting times at the airport. We strongly recommend checking how many stops your flight will have to take, as well as& the overall journey time and then make your decision on if the flight is worth buying for the price. Or, whether paying a little extra for a shorter journey might be better for you.
See the lowest price for each airline
If there's an airline that you like flying on, you can also easily see the cheapest flights for that specific airline. Just select the airline that you want to on from the banner at the top of the page and we'll show you all flights from that airline, with the cheapest round-trip flights at the top!
