How to Find the Cheapest Flight Ticket Using Skyscanner?

You want to go on a vacation with your loved ones. Your time is flexible, you know the trip is gonna be epic, but the main questions are HOW, WHEN, WHERE? Do you know Skyscanner has a feature that can inspire wanderlust and find you the perfect holiday destination according to your preference? Now let me show you how with this Step-by step tutorial post: 
Cheapest flight tickets

Let's see, firstly, let's set our budget to RM3,000 for a return flight ticket, and of course, the lower the price, the better! 

Step 1: Search EVERYWHERE!

 Remember to check the "Return" box, key in your country of departure and number of person flying.

Step 2: Change the date to ANYTIME! 

If your travel date is flexible, you can search for the cheapest flight ticket of all time by selecting "Whole Month".  Then, click on the "Cheapest Month".

 Here is how your search box will look like after clicking on "Cheapest Month":

Step 3: Click "SEARCH FLIGHTS"!

A list of destinations will pop out, together with the cheapest deals available in each country... Let's see... how about going to Europe? Any country in Europe.

 Okay, we see flight to Germany being the cheapest deal on the list so let's check it out. Click "Germany" and a list of Cities will be shown.

Step 4: Select Destination, Departure City and Dates!

Once you click on a city (In our case, Frankfurt) and departure city (Kuala Lumpur), you will be directed to a page with a calendar marking the cheapest and most expensive flying date. Choose your preferred departure and return date. 
In our case, flying out of Kuala Lumpur on 2 March and returning on 9 March seems reasonable. It leaves us with a solid 6 days in Frankfurt, so how about that? Let's click "SHOW FLIGHT" to find out more.

Step 5: Decision time! 

Wait patiently for the page to load... Opps! Looks like we are too late for the RM1776 deal. Now the cheapest flight from Kuala Lumpur to Frankfurt cost RM2044, including 2 transit stops...

WAIT A MINUTE... 42 hours to reaching destination? No way! 

MISSION: ABORTED. 

Don't be discourage! Repeat Step 1 to 3... who knows? something better awaits us. Looking carefully at the list again, we notice Netherlands. Let's check it out.

Well, Amsterdam seems like a good choice!

Again, choose your preferred date of departure and return. 15-29 March gives us 13 days to explore the region. Let's brainstorm: 

2 full days in Amsterdam 
a day trip to Zaan Schan by train.
a day trip to Giethoorn by tour. 
Take a bus or train to Brussels and spend 2 days in Brussels.
Take a night bus to London and spend 3 days in London.
Take a night bus to Paris and spend 3 days in Paris
Take a night bus back to Amsterdam

13 days! This looks like a good idea.
