Where do we begin?
Google Flights isn't an expert in selling flights. Alternative Airlines is. Google Flights is simply a metasearch that runs a search based on where and when you want to travel and then redirects you to the airline website based on the flights that are available.
The number of airlines that it returns is significantly less than the number that we do at Alternative Airlines — we have far more choice. Plus, because Google Flights redirects you the airline website, you're limited to the boring traditional payment methods that most airlines offer. At Alternative Airlines, we offer more than 40 payment methods, including buy now, pay later. This means that you can spread the cost of your flights over time and don't have to pay the full amount upfront!
Use our search form at the top of the page to search for flights now.
Google Flights simply doesn't have as many airlines on offer as Alternative Airlines. Google Flights says that it returns results 'more than 300 airlines'. Whereas, at Alternative Airlines, we offer more than 600 airlines — that's double the amount!
So, not only will we give you way more choice any time you search for flights, we'll also be able to offer your flights to the more remote destinations that Google Flights can't.
The airlines that we offer fly all across the world.

Great service at unbeatable prices.
Booked all flights for my euro trip. All tickets were timely delivered with utmost clarity. The sales support is very reliable, this lovely representative named Hannah Cruz responded to all my queries and provided support in a very professional manner. Highly recommend this website.
Found this to be much easier than the others. Sometimes can be very confusing but the way they list the flights was very easy. This was helpful because the less complicated, the more I like!
