Most would agree that learning where to find cheap flights online is a MUST for anyone who loves traveling. The fact is this: cheap flights are out there for the taking. You just have to know where to look and how to find them.
It’s time to start using social media as a tool and not just a time waster. Cat videos are fun, but you know what’s way more fun? Knowing where to find cheap flights online so you can travel the world cheap.
In this article, I’m going to show you exactly where to find cheap flights online by setting up your Facebook feed so it does all the work and you don’t have to.
Where To Find Cheap Flights Online Using Facebook
To make things easy, I’ve created this short video walkthrough on where to find cheap flights online using Facebook. I cover exactly how to set up your feed and which sites you should follow.
How To Adjust Your “Follow" Settings in Facebook to Make Sure You Don’t Miss a Travel Deal
As shown in the video above, when you find a page on Facebook you want to follow, the key to never missing their posts is in how you set the “follow" settings.
You’ll want to make sure you select “see first" so the page’s posts don’t get lost in your feed. This way new posts from the page you’re following will always be at the top, easy to spot.
Second, you’ll also want to turn notifications on for that page. Now, even if you’re not checking your feed, you’ll get a notification that you can check later. You won’t miss a thing.
Some of these deals that are posted only last one day. Because of this you want to make absolutely sure you adjust your follow settings to “show first" and turn notifications to “on". Make sure you never miss out on that crazy cheap flight deal before it comes and goes.
Now that you know how to adjust your settings so you never miss a page’s posts, let’s get you started with a list of my favorite travel deal pages to follow on Facebook.
Where to Find Cheap Flights Online – A Great Starter List of Pages to Follow on Facebook
Depending on where you live, the pages you follow on Facebook to find cheap flights online will vary. There are some pages that cover national travel deals, and others that are specific to a region.
Scott’s Cheap Flights, Thrifty Traveler, AirfareWatchdog, and The Flight Deal are great no matter what part of the US you’re in. Don’t forget that most of these pages on Facebook have their own corresponding website where you can sign up to follow by email as well.
Thrifty Traveler and AirfareWatchdog are especially good for travel deals. In addition to cheap flights, they also share posts on how to save money in other ways while you travel.
Thrifty Traveler currently has a roundtrip fight from Houston to Norway for $434 that I am this close to booking. I just don’t know if I want to endure Norway in January or not. Brrrrrr.
Because of Facebook’s recognition of user location, following these pages may pull up suggested pages to follow that are specific to your region. In my case, because I live in south Texas, I found pages like CheapDFW & EscapeATX which are great if you’re in or around the Dallas or Austin areas.
(Side note: Just before publishing this article I found and booked a January round trip flight from Dallas to Barcelona for $453 using CheapDFW. Score!)
A Couple of Bonus Pages to Follow For Great Deals Involving Travel Rewards Cards
The following two pages are favorites of mine, but not because they share flight deals. They share the best credit card rewards deals you can take advantage of to fly dirt cheap.
The Points Guy and The Frugal Travel Guy are musts if you’ve ever dreamed of flying first class or, better yet, flying free. Both will share with you the right credit cards to apply for, when to do it, and exactly how to redeem those incredible bonus miles you’ll get when you meet their spending limits.
The Points Guy has made a living piggybacking travel rewards on top of each other to fly first class all over the world free of charge.
I’m not quite at that Jedi master level yet. However, my upcoming west coast road trip from Seattle down to San Diego in August has 2 free flights and a week long car rental I was able to get free of charge. This is all because of travel rewards I earned on previous trips! It’s also because I’m Batman.
The Whole Point of Knowing Where To Find Cheap Flights Online
I set my Facebook up like this because I have extreme wanderlust and want to travel the world! There is so much beauty in this world and no matter how negative things seem on tv, when you’re seeing the world up close with your own eyes, you wonder why you’re not doing it all the time.
Arriving at James Bond Island in Thailand, May 2017. It's been 3 weeks & I already can't wait to go back next year.
The worst part about taking a vacation is having to go back to work, right? That’s why I set my sites on finding a way to build a business online that could travel with me. I found the training I was looking for and now I see light at the end of the tunnel.
I now see the internet as a resource instead of a time waster.
If traveling the world and seeing its epic sights and experiencing new cultures is something you’ve always wanted, or even if you’ve just always wanted to fire your boss and build something online around your passion, I highly recommend taking a look at the training platform I found that opened my eyes forever. It’s absolutely free to try and if you’re like me, you’ll never look back.
