Flight prices can quickly change with time. By setting up an alert, you’ll get notified as soon as the price goes up, or down. This allows you to make a better decision on when to book and get the best deal.
After you’ve searched for a particular flight, just click the ‘Get price alerts’ link next to the search result and enter your email address. Each time your chosen flight price changes, we automatically send you an email showing you the increase or decrease.

This is a much debated topic! The general rule is, flight prices tend to rise the closer you get to the departure date. This is most true with budget airlines, like easyJet or Ryanair, who tend to have a set number of seats at a certain price. After these are sold out, they move on to the next set of seats at a higher price and so on.
However, this is not always the case, and scheduled airlines like BA or Lufthansa sometimes have more variation in their price modeling, and of course, there are seat sales to add to the mix too!
By signing up for Price Alerts, you’ll be able to monitor the price of the flight you want, and make up your own mind on when’s best to book.
