I am always on the lookout for cheap flights, whether they are domestic or international. I used to sometimes spend weeks trying to find the cheapest flight and the best deal, but now I value my time a bit more. And I think I have also learned a thing or two about finding flights with the best time-cost ratio, and my process has gotten a lot faster.

Personally, I always book my flights directly with the airlines – that’s one of the lessons I have learned in my travels over the last few years – but to find the best dates and prices, I look at third-party booking platforms.

In this video, I show you how I booked my flights for my upcoming trip from Europe to South America (Brazil) and how I did my research to find the best flight options and prices.

Finally, I found a flight that fit my budget and travel plans. I was able to book my flight and got a good price.
