Momondo is one of my favorite places to search for cheap flights to anywhere in the world. One of the biggest reasons why I love using them so much is their flight search engine is one of the funnest ones to use, and their prices are always competitively priced when I compare it with other flight search engines.
Here are the steps I take to find cheap flights using Momondo. I’m going to use a flight from NYC to Barcelona as my example here.
1. Go to Momondo and enter your search criteria:
2. Momondo will populate your search results. Notice that they will display the cheapest flight first. In this case, it’s a fairly cheap flight at $545 dollars. That’s pretty good for a flight across the ocean!
3. All you need to do now is scroll down the list and choose the best time that suits for you.
Something really nice about Momondo is that they clearly show you the cheapest flights by “non stop” and flights with “stops”. You’ll notice that non stop flights are a bit more expensive because they are more convenient. In this example, it’s about a couple hundred dollars more.
Depending on how frugal you are and how much you favor convenience over money, you could choose the more expensive option and get to your destination quicker :).
Momondo has some of the most premium search functions out of any flight search engine out there. Most flight search engines have these features too, but the way Momondo shows them on the left hand bar makes it really really easy to find the best priced flight for your needs.
A few things they have are:
In general, Momondo is very much like the other search engine flight searches in that they will search all available flights and find you prices that match your criteria. I think Momondo really shines when it comes to a user friendly website and I almost always find the cheapest flights with them.
Momondo doesn’t have every flight in their system. They can’t, and no flight search engine can. But they have a huge selection. You can definitely search many flight search engines to “check around” and compare. Some popular flight search engines include Expedia, Orbitz, and Priceline.
Anyway, by carefully using Momondo’s search and filtering functions, you can narrow down the flight that is the cheapest for what you want. Sometimes I go on their website just to check random flights to see what prices are in the current market. Their website is one of the most user friendly websites around which is why I love using them so much.
