Perhaps one of the greatest challenges is trying to find the best deal when you have to travel last minute.

But the good news is that there are ways to find the cheapest flight options available, even if you have to travel in a pinch.

Outside, an American magazine focused on the outdoors, has identified several tools and hacks that will help you find cost-efficient flight prices.

If You Need To Book A Flight ASAP

Outline recommends a three-pronged strategy that no longer involves the long-standing advice of searching for airfare on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

The reason, according to the publication, is that airlines have become more competitive with each other.

Instead, travelers should do the following:

Step 1: Scan Google Flights

Google Flights has an explore feature that allows users to search by destination with approximate dates to price the best airline-and-day combination for a solid deal.

Step 2: Use Momondo and Skyscanner

Once you have the information from Google Flights, travelers should research prices on Momondo and Skyscanner. Both sites will compile a list of flight prices from hundreds of companies, which means it’s possible to find a better price than Google Flights.

Step 3: Double-Check the Airline’s Website

Now that you checked and verified prices on Google Flights, Momondo and Skyscanner, it’s recommended that travelers go to the airline’s actual website and search the same flight to see how prices compare.

It’s possible that the airline website will have a better deal.
