Three tips to help you save

Just follow these tips before you book.

  Search Early

Searching for your journey at least three days in advance means you're more likely to see our lowest fares.

  Stay Flexible

As our fares differ depending on demand, you might find that changing your day of travel lowers the journey cost.

  Avoid Peaks

Fares tend to be more expensive when travelling at peak times - try altering your journey time to avoid the busiest periods.
