In the market for cheap flights? Well, of course you are! (Who isn’t?) You need to download the Skyscanner app ASAP. It’s the easiest way to find the most affordable flights.

The Deets: It works similarly to Google Flights, Kayak and Momondo. You plug in your destination, dates and other preferences, and Skyscanner will give you the best available flights. The app’s “everywhere” search allows you to search the entire world, and then you can sort flights by “cheapest,” “fastest” or plain ol’ “best” (an algorithmic mix of the two). The app even tells you the best time to travel to a certain destination.

The Bottom Line: Don’t overpay for a flight when you can get one for the lowest price (and not compromise on quality). Cheap flights in the palm of your hand? Hell yeah. [Swirled]
