How to book the cheapest flights online

Everyone is talking about cheap flights, but how do you book cheap flights? This is the question we are going to answer right now.
So let’s imagine you want to book cheap tickets from Lagos to Abuja and the back to Lagos. This is known as a “return” trip as opposed to a “one-way” trip.

There are several ways of booking a return trip from Lagos to Abuja (and of course any other destinations):
The first option is, you could book two separate one-way tickets. For example, you could book a one-way ticket from Lagos to Abuja and a separate one-way ticket from Abuja to Lagos. You could book the flights with the same airline or separate airlines. However, in both cases, this would result in two completely separate unconnected flight bookings. The problem with this is the total cost of two, one-way tickets are almost always more expensive than the price of a return ticket.

The second option is you could book directly with an airline. The problem with this is the airline is not going to offer you the cheapest flights available (including cheaper flights with other airlines). They will only offer you the cheapest flights with their airline. For example, Air Peace might have the cheapest flight from Lagos to Abuja. But their flight from Abuja back to Lagos is more expensive that Arik Air or Dana Airlines. If you book directly with Air Peace, they will not offer you the cheaper flights on Arik Air or Dana Airlines. This brings us to the third and best way to book cheap flights.

Your third and best way to book cheap flights is by using a flight comparison and booking site like ours (FlightScanner.com.ng). Here’s why. When you search for flights from Lagos to Abuja (return) using our powerful search tool, we check flight ticket prices with several airlines! We search out the cheapest flights with several airlines. We allow you to book a return trip with more than one airline. So let’s say Air Peace has the cheapest flight from Lagos to Abuja and Dana Air has the cheapest flight from Abuja to Lagos, we allow you to book both of those flights under one return booking! This way you can book a return trip with the cheapest airlines!

Below is a fantastic example of the cheapest tickets being with two different airlines. As you can see, Arik Air has the cheapest flight from Lagos to Abuja, but Dana Airlines has by far the cheapest flight from Abuja to Lagos.
