Find the best flight fares with Price Alerts

Always want to know the best fares for your trip? Set up a Price Alert to find out when things change so you can pounce when the price is right.

How do Price Alerts work?

Once you’ve set up an alert for your preferred destination and dates, we’ll check the fares so you don’t have to. It’s completely free, easy to start and easy to turn off.

Then whenever prices go down or up, you’ll get an email or push notification straight away to help make sure you get the best possible deal. 

Top tips for tracking flight prices

Here are a few extra tips to help you find the cheapest deals.

  • Set up multiple Price Alerts: Consider creating alerts for departure and arrival airports near your chosen locations too, in case there are great prices on alternative routes. Or try different dates as a slight change can have a big impact.
  • Start tracking early: Seat sales, error fares and early booking opportunities can work to your advantage. The earlier you set up an alert, the more chance you have of finding one of these deals.
  • Share your plans: Travelling with friends or family? Get everyone to sign up for Price Alerts so you can all help keep track. Even if you’re travelling alone, see if a friend or family member can help.
