Skiplagged App Review: How to Save Money on Any Flight
VIDEO | Watch our Review of the famous Travel App Skiplagged, to Learn How to Save Money on Your Next Flight, Using the Secret of "Hidden Cities!"
How to Save Money on Your Next Flight!
✈️ One of the apps that we nearly always use to research flight prices is Skiplagged.
It's a genius idea and it’s saved us a lot of money and it will save you money too! Skiplagged is the brainchild of a 22-year-old computer programmer, who stumbled upon the concept of Hidden City flights, which are flights that go via another city before reaching a final destination. The opportunity to save money exists because of the way these flights are priced.
So, for example, let's say you want to fly from the Big Apple, New York to San Francisco, the average price is around $500.
So Skiplagged finds flights that route through San Francisco for a cheaper price. Let's say American Airlines offers a flight from New York to Seattle via San Francisco. You would take the first leg of the flight from New York to San Francisco, and get off the plane and be in your destination for a lot less money. How cool is that? The only drawback you have to remember is that obviously this way you can't check your luggage because it would, of course, continue on to Seattle without you.
Here's how to get started with Skiplagged
You can either go to Skiplagged.com, or download the app for your smartphone. Enter where you want to go from and to, and of course, the date.
Let's say you search from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. usually it's best to search for each leg as a separate one way flight, even if you want a round trip. So you press the button, and wait for the results.
As you’ll see, the cheapest option in the example in this video - is a flight that goes from LAX to Dulles, and then from Dulles to Philadelphia. You would obviously just take the first leg of the flight and be all pleased with yourself for how much money you've saved.
Now, as you might imagine though, the airlines aren't too happy about this little hack. United even brought a lawsuit against Skiplagged to try to shut them down. The judge actually sided with Skiplagged and threw the case out of the court. Hooray for travellers!
If you think about it, the airline is offering a ticket for a certain price and you as their customers agree to pay that price. So whether or not you use all of the ticket is entirely up to you because you're the customer, right? So be sure to check out Skiplagged.com and start saving today!
