Best place to find lowest airfare

Forgive me if this was answered already, I'm new to RFD...but what I'm looking for are random flights to random destinations that are really good deals. I can travel on a whim and would love to choose a destination based on airfare price. Is there something on here I can follow or an app anyone can suggest that's good for that? Thanks!

Best site to book flights is directly with the airlines.
Google Flights can show you what options there are.

If you're looking for random destinations at the drop of a hat, at crazy prices... your best bet is to subscribe to Secret Flying. They post price errors to random destinations all the time.
Google flights is great and all, thats what i use, but only if you know where you're looking to go, and a timeframe.

Try skyscanner.net. They have a cool feature called “everywhere”. So set origin your home airport and then put everywhere in destination it lists the cheapest flights separated by country. It’s more of a European search engine but does work here (you’ll just see a lot of Lower cost regional flights).
Autocorrect sucks

Did you mean https://www.skyscanner.ca? https://www.skyscanner.net is for those in the UK

YYZdeals.com and nextdeparture.ca have what you are looking for.

PS: Put your location in your profile since many of these threads will have location-specific recommendations.

You can subscribe to a FORUM
Example, this is the TRAVEL FORUM
Go to the top of the FORUM DIRECTORY
(Here’s the link for this the TRAVEL FORUM one = https://forums.redflagdeals.com/travel-f39/ )
Look for FORUM TOOLS
Then choose SUBSCRIBE from the drop down menu

There is no where on RFD that there is a separate SECTION on Flights
Be that a SUB FORUM or a category onto itself (not even in HOT DEALS)
That I know of

If this isn’t what you are looking to do
Or find you haven’t explained your goal sufficiently
Then I suggest you post again in the FORUM dedicated to RFD Questions

https://forums.redflagdeals.com/site-co ... tions-f13/

Where one of the Mods / Programmers will give you more help

Like the other RFDers in this thread we just use other sources for flight info... in our case Flyer Talk
