However, at the moment we don't include transportation. Therefore, in this article we want to provide useful sources to help you find flights and transfers at the best price possible.
After doing some research, we believe that rather than looking for flights through different airline companies, the easiest and fastest way to do it is via websites that compare fares. This will help you decide on airports, airlines and flight times.
For instance, a great site is www.skyscanner.net where depending on the booking dates, you'll find a selection of all the flights available, the airlines and their corresponding rates.
These sites aren't only useful to compare fares but they will also allow you to set an alarm so you know when to book at the cheapest rate available! Another great advantage of this kind of sites is that it will also offer you information on transfers such as: coaches, car rentals, trains... cheap and easy to book.
