CheapAir Review

CheapAir's combination of powerful search tools and steep discounts makes them appealing to budget-conscious travelers, but those looking to book an entire trip itinerary in one place may find the site a bit cumbersome.

The Good

Plenty of ways to save

To ensure you nab the best deal, CheapAir enables you to compare the rates you find on their site with those found on other top travel websites. They also run sales from time to time. Keeping an eye on CheapAir’s travel blog is another good idea if you’re looking for ways to save. Not only do they post advice about how to minimize expenses on your next vacation, but they also post last-minute deals and coupons. Most impressively, CheapAir guarantees the prices listed on their site are the most affordable rates available. In fact, if the rates drop after you’ve already booked your trip, you get a refund for the difference.

Exclusive deals for members

By signing up for a free account with CheapAir, you’re treated to first access to all the latest promotions and discounts. You can conveniently customize the notifications you receive if you don’t want to stay apprised of all of them. When you sign up, you enter your home city so they know to send you news of any cheap flights from your home airport or other discounts in your area. If you already have a trip in mind, CheapAir’s FareTracker tool tracks travel prices for you and helps you determine the best time to book.

Easily focus your search

CheapAir’s powerful filters make it easy to narrow down your search to find the flight, hotel, rental car, or cruise that fits your needs. Select your travel dates and your destination in the search and then limit the results you see by what matters most to you. If you don’t like layovers, choose to view just nonstop-only flights. Need a kid-friendly hotel for the weekend? The amenity filters show you just the ones that offer a pool or child care. Keeping costs down is as simple as organizing by price. At any time, you can always go back and change your search criteria if you need to.

Mix and match airlines

CheapAir gives you the option to save even more money on your flight by choosing different airlines for your departure and return. When you search for your trip dates, CheapAir pulls up a list of all the departing and return flights that match what you’re looking for. You can check out the departure and arrival times, number of stops, and price all on one page. Then, select the departure and return flights you want and proceed to book them. If the flights you choose have two different prices next to them, you’re charged the higher of the two for your roundtrip fare. This option to mix and match is perfect if you’ve been having difficulty finding flights from a single airline at preferable times. You always have the option to just go with one airline, but it’s worth checking in to CheapAir’s mix-and-match option because it’s something you won’t find with most other travel websites.

The Bad

No vacation packages

If you need to book a flight and a hotel, you have to run two separate searches and make two separate purchases. This is relatively unusual since most companies enable their customers to book complete vacation packages or at least bundle services together to save money.
