    Flight bookings

    Does any one know of an app or website thatvsearches all flight prices?
    Be kind of nice to enter range of dates and times and get a list of combinations.

    Local or International ?

    Flapp for local on you phone

    International sites are not good at all - you should preferably choose the airline of the country you visiting and go from there.
    Alternatively if you are doing Europe - Emirates are always good but you go via Dubai

    Just be carefull of cheap flights - it compares all the local carriers so that you can pick the cheapest one BUT
    if you also open mango, Kululu, Safair etc etc and compare the same flight from cheap flights to the same one on the actual site you will see that cheap flights are more expensive

    I figure the price includes their cut.
    So I will use the app to get an indication and then book direct through the particular airline

    Use http://www.skyscanner.net for international flights...and http://www.cheapflights.co.za for local flights. They charge the same price as that of the airlines, the airlines pay them a refferal fee.

    Your best bet - I also do a lot of local travel and have found that if you can book at least 3-5 days before hand you will get a good price. Mango is normal the cheapest - A flight from Jhb - CT one way is about R760 if you are flexible with dates and times. EG you can book 4 days in advance for a 8am or 9am flight in the morning.

    Booked using Cheapflights yesterday.

    NO difference - they balanced to the cent between their link, and airline direct.
