People have always asked questions like “How can I obtain cheap airfare?” and “When is the cheapest time to fly?” The answers to such questions depend on a variety of factors including the location, tourism trends, price fluctuations, weather, season, and so forth. TripAdvisor (SmarterTravel’s parent company) is known for its hotel reviews, and now travelers can apply their ratings to airlines, plus search for airfare on TripAdvisor Flights On testing this flight booking site it’s clear that TripAdvisor doesn’t always serve up the cheapest fares, but sometimes it did.

This rate is reflective of the price offered on average by the travel websites featured on this site (such as , , and ). The actual rate found by users may differ from the price listed due to pricing and inventory changes but should be within a reasonable range of the price point stated by this site.
