1. Seedly Deals – All airline promotions & deals in 1 place

More often than not, travel deals come with complex T&Cs as well as flying and booking periods which makes planning for our trips a headache. That’s why we’ve simplified these T&Cs so it is easier to understand and plan for our travel. Here’s a sample of a deal we’ve done.

2. Skyscanner – Airfare aggregator over 30 websites

Skyscanner is the leading aggregator that compares prices across over 30 travel websites. After indicating your flight dates and airport locations, you immediately get a list of all airfares and you can indicate your preferences via the filters.

Not impressed with the deals? Be sure to use the “Get Price Alerts” to receive email alerts when prices change.

3. Expedia – Flight+hotel bundles aggregator with Expedia+ Rewards points

Expedia is major contender in the fare aggregators’ space. While Expedia‘s range of airfares isn’t the best, it actively tries to pair hotel deals with your flights so you can maximise your savings for your entire trip.

Buying on Expedia also gives you Expedia+ points, which can be exchanged for rewards such as members-only deals as well as hotel and flight benefits.

After aggregating fares from airline partners, Hellowings charts out the airfares over a 60-day period, so you can pick the cheapest combination of flight and return dates to your travel destination.

5. Airlines Newsletters – Exclusive deals in your inbox from your favourite airlines 

Do you have an airline that you prefer? Most major airlines such as Singapore Air, Emirates and Scoot have their dedicated newsletters where they send out exclusive deals frequently (some do this weekly).

All you need to do is head to their website and subscribe to the newsletter, and these exclusive deals will be delivered to your inbox. Here’s a sample of a Scoot newsletter we received this morning.
