There are a lot of questions that I seem to get asked quite often by my blog readers and one of it has always been on ways to find cheap flight tickets. I have to admit that most of my personal trips are on cheap tickets, mainly bought during promotional period regardless of airlines. The trick is to find those random and cheap air tickets hidden in the system as part of an airline’s promotion. In today’s blog post I am sharing one website that has been a handy tool in finding cheap AirAsia tickets. Thanks to blogger Adameben for sharing about Fleapy.com, a site to “Find the Cheapest AirAsia Flight Fare”.
The concept behing Fleapy is actually very simple. Fleapy.com website searches the AirAsia database based on user’s origin and destination inputs. For example, I’m planning to fly to Johor Bahru to discover the new Legoland theme park. Since my Legoland annual pass is valid throughout 2013, I don’t have a specific date yet and would want to choose a date that has cheap flights.
After clicking “Search”, Fleapy lists down all the flights based on its fares giving the user a one-page view of all available flights and its fares. This is the beauty of the website. It is so convenient that I wonder why airlines like AirAsia do not already incorporate this search functions into their system.
No more try and error attempts as what many would usually do on AirAsia’s website. I can clearly see that cheap flights are still available on January – March 2013. RM45 one-way on January 4th, 2013 looks good for me.
After selecting my KUL-JHB flight, it’s time to choose the return flight. 5th January 2013 last flight (RM45) is perfect for me.
A summary page confirming my selection of flights and an estimate of the cost, RM45 + RM45 = RM90. Click on the “Book Flight” to transfer yourself to AirAsia’s Official Website with all the selected flight dates.
Getting there…. Fleapy at work.
Awesome. A confirmation on AirAsia’s website that the seats on the date are available as per the price stated on Fleapy. RM90 all inclusive for my KUL-JHB-KUL. Legoland trip!
Fleapy has also helped me in securing RM500 (all-inclusive) return tickets to Colombo, Sri Lanka this coming November. The best time to use Fleapy is during the AirAsia Zero Fare Promotion as you increase your chance in getting those hard-to-get tickets. Please note that Fleapy does not provide the online purchasing service. Fleapy only searches for flights and the online booking should always be made on the AirAsia website which Fleapy will directs you to as shown above 🙂
My only complaint about Fleapy is that the list of destinations is not frequently updated. For example Lombok is yet to be included in the list while London is still there in the list. Also it would be great to have Fleapy covering other airlines as well, maybe in the future!
Visit Fleapy.com and happy hunting for the cheap fares. Also don’t forget to share this with your friends and families.
