Summertime is travel time and if you are hoping to visit Europe, finding a great deal on your round-trip airfare can help to free up some cash to spend while you are over there! The internet has really opened up the possibility of scoring cheap tickets, especially for travelers with flexible dates. While you can always check deals with your preferred carrier, utilizing an aggregator lets you keep tabs on what deals everyone is offering. For example, if you want to visit France but see a super cheap ticket on Skyscanner for a flight to Belgium that is a lot more helpful than waiting for your preferred city to go on sale!
