Google flights: a very useful tool
It is a well designed and very useful tool to compare airfares and get the best deals out there. It allows you to compare prices on different travel dates and also to different destinations.
Choose your departure and arrival cities (example Montreal and Cancún), one-way or round trip and randomly choose a departure date. Select the graphic display in the right upper corner to get all prices in a 2 months time line, each blue column representing a different day and a flight price.
You can also use the map display by clicking on the location icon in the right upper corner. Choose your departure city, your travel dates and a round trip or one way ticket. Leave the destination case blank and the map will show you the pricing options for all destinations. For example, price to fly on December 15 to January 6, from Montreal to New York is 370 $ round trip or 397 $ to Grand Bermuda round trip.
Use the map display even if you already have a destination in mind. It will still give you the opportunity to compare prices to different destinations and categories.
When you find the flight that suits you, click on the «show flights» button to see a complete list of all flights by airlines for the chosen dates & destination.
And it’s using Google flights that I just found a one-way plane ticket to Cancún at 240 $ for the beginning of December!!! Ready to go 🙂
