How to find cheap flights in April?

  • Be adventurous. Look for a deal rather than a destination.
  • Be a travel hacker. Travel during “unpopular” times – early morning, late evening.
  • Be an explorer. Consider departing outside of your regular airport.
  • Be a bargain hunter. Look at long layovers as a bonus destination. Check out our ultimate guide to finding flight deals.
  • Be a fool for tools. Use Skyscanner’s Everywhere Search & sign-up for Price Alerts.

Top destinations to visit in April

Palm Springs – Just a half-hour drive to the site of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Palm Springs is the perfect airport to fly into for festival-goers. Coachella takes place over two separate weekends in April each year and promises a fantastic lineup of musicians, stunning art displays and fun, interactive experiences around the festival grounds.

Okasa, Japan – Cherry Blossoms trees are at full bloom across Japan toward the end of March, throughout April, and even into early May. Central areas like Kyoto and Okasa will typically experience early April blooms, while Sendai and Aomori will experience them later in the month. Seeing these beautiful, delicate pink and white flowers all around you is a bucket list experience for sure!

New York City – Want an opportunity to mingle with celebrities and want independent movies before they become the next big blockbuster? Walk the red carpet and feel like an A-lister at the annual Tribeca Film Festival, held in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan. Stay for Q&As after screenings to hear from the cast, director and others involved in the film.

Bangkok, Thailand – April is a fun time to visit Southeast Asia, but particularly Bangkok. Yes, it’s scorching hot in Thailand in April, but it’s also Songkran. That in itself should cool you down. Songkran celebrates the Thai New Year from April 13 – 15 (though festivities last for about a week), and some call it the water festival since it’s celebrated with a city-wide waterfight. Be prepared to get drenched by water guns, buckets, and water hoses! 

Skyscanner Price Alerts

Travel research and data can point to the cheapest days to fly and help you identify when plane tickets will be available at the lowest prices. The easiest way to monitor changes in prices is by setting up a free Skyscanner Price Alert.

When you have entered the detail of routes you are interested in then you will be immediately sent an email to let you know when the price changes on your chosen flight. Skyscanner constantly monitors price changes to give you the most up-to-date information. When you find the best time to book a flight, let Skyscanner help you start your next travel journey.
