How to use google flights to find a holiday when you’re flexible on your destination.

In part 1, I showed you how to use google ITA to find dates for cheaper travel for a specific destination. But what if you want a holiday and are open to where you go?

Broad destination search


Click on “Explore destinations” at the bottom (

Enter your departure point (leave “Where to?” blank) and enter when you want to travel (you can be specific or 1 week in a month etc)

then look at the map and zoom in/out to see possible destinations

Once you find a destination you can then see the flights on the left

If you have a specific alliance carrier you want to travel with you can filter – (its just under where you entered dates)

It used to be possible to modify to a specific airline, but that no longer looks possible.
