Travel smart: How to look at flight prices across a month or year on Skyscanner

Looking for the lowest and best flight prices? If you do not have your travel dates set in stone, a quick and simple “Whole month” or “Cheapest month” (across the year) search on Skyscanner will help you find the days when flight tickets are at their cheapest. Get started now!

How to view prices across a month

Enter travel details like the departure and destination airport, but instead of entering a departure and return date, click on the departure date and you’ll see a pop-up calendar for ‘Specific date’ or ‘Whole month’. Select ‘Whole month’ then choose the month you’d like to travel in. (You can also choose ‘Cheapest month’ if you have flexible dates – scroll down for more details.)

Skyscanner will then search all flights and display the search results in the form of a colour-coded calendar or a chart, for easy comparison.

How to view prices across a whole year

Viewing prices across the whole year is similar to viewing prices across a whole month but instead of selecting ‘Whole month’, select ‘Cheapest month’. Just proceed to fill up the rest of your travel details, hit ‘Search flights’ and you’ll get your results!
