Finding a cheap flight is almost a day task nowadays. You need to scan and browse sites, come back again to check if the price maybe dropped a little more… and again, and again. Today we had to look up some potential flights for one of our customers. The request was to find return flights for 4 adults from Cape Town to Johannesburg OR Tambo International for the 24th of September till the 4th of October. It was quite easy for us to find availability, that was no problem. With many low cost airlines operating on that route, for example like Mango Airlines, Kulula & FlySafair.
We managed to find a flight for our customer and fortunately at quite a good price. The total price came to R6,283 and the flight times were exactly what the customer wanted. There were some cheaper flights with FlySafair, however the luggage was not included. And when you go on holiday for at least a week, we’re pretty sure you need some luggage. With FlySafair charging R150 per checked in suitcase, this would have made them a lot more expensive (although they seemed cheaper at first).

Now let’s start comparing cheap flights with other flight sites
We decided to help our customer a little bit and went onto some other popular travel sites and started comparing cheap flights and what the prices would be for THE EXACT SAME FLIGHT. We punched in the same details, we selected the same Kulula flights with the same times, same booking class, I’m sure you get the picture. Although the flights were all the same, wee discovered that the prices vary a lot! All sites we tried, showed a more expensive flight than GrabaFlight. Really, every one of them. We compared flights on FlightSite, Tripsta, TripAdvisor and Mango Airlines.
