Find the cheapest flights with Skyscanner Price Alerts

Skyscanner's handy flight price alert tool means you'll no longer miss out on the cheapest flights. With a close eye on your chosen flight, our Price Alert feature will let you know as soon as the air ticket price falls - as well as when it rises! As soon as the price changes, you'll receive an email to let you know so you never miss out on the cheapest flights.

How do I set up Skyscanner Price Alerts?

A Skyscanner Price Alert is a free, effective way for you to find out changes to flight prices on your chosen route. You will receive an email when the price changes, allowing you an opportunity to monitor the price before you book your vacation. 

When searching for a flight on the Skyscanner website, enter the departure and destination airports that you are interested in, then proceed to the page where you will see the current deals available. 

On the top left side of the screen, click the ‘Get Price Alerts’ button and simply enter your email address – it’s as easy as that! If the price of your flight goes up or down, we’ll send you an email to let you know of the change. And like the best things in life, Skyscanner Price Alerts are completely free, and you can change your alerts or unsubscribe whenever you want to. Just be careful to choose the exact airports and dates to fully set up an effective Skyscanner Price Alert.

If the price of the flight ticket feels a little too expensive at the moment, no worries! Simply set up a Price Alert and as soon as the price of the ticket starts to fall, you’ll be the first to know. Flight prices change frequently, but Price Alerts are your handy tool to keep on top of them.
