1. Why sign up for Price Alerts?

Flight prices can change at any given time and there’s no telling when that will be. Skyscanner’s price alerts can save you the trouble of constantly checking for changes in the fare of the flight that you are planning on booking. Let us do the monitoring from our end! All you’ll need to do is subscribe to Price Alerts. This lets us inform you when the prices change, giving you the opportunity to book the flight as a better deal pops up.

2. How do Price Alerts work?

Once you sign up for Price Alerts, we’ll automatically send you an e-mail each time the price of your chosen flight goes up or down. You’ll receive the notification as soon as the change in airfare takes place. It’s an entirely free service and you can create (or cancel) price alerts at any moment.

3. How can I create a Price Alert?

It’s easy and simple. Just run a flights search on Skyscanner then click on the “Get price alerts” button, which you can find at the top left of the results page. Enter your e-mail address and then click “Create an alert” and voila! You can now expect an e-mail from us when there is any change (increase or decrease) in the price of your desired flight.

Note: To set up a price alert, you must indicate the specific departure and return dates and your choice of airport.
