Welcome to Skiplagged! Here are some basic instructions on how to search for and book a flight.
Go to the https://skiplagged.com/ homepage and enter your departure and destination locations and departure date for a one-way trip. You can also change to round trip and adjust the number of travelers.
Flight search results will load on the next screen so you can choose your flight.
- There are two types of flights: Standard and Hidden-city or Skiplagging
- Standard: Leaving from the departure city and arriving at the final destination of the ticket. (Example: You want to fly from NYC area to LAX. The route is JFK-SEA-LAX. This means you would leave from JFK and arrive at the final destination of the ticket, LAX).
- Hidden-city (Skiplagging): Leaving from the departure city and you will disembark at the layover airport but not continue on to the final destination of the ticket. (Example: You want to fly from NYC to LAX and you found a hidden-city flight route EWR-LAX-OAK. This means you would exit in LAX and not continue on to OAK.) Learn more about them here: What is Skiplagging or "hidden-city" flying?
There are filters along the left side where you can narrow down your options by filtering standard vs. hidden-city (skiplagging), number of stops, takeoff, landing, flight duration, layover duration, airlines, departure airport, and layover city.
To select a flight, you can hover over the price on the right side and click on the flight or the blue “Select” button.
- This will create a popup for you to review the details before you get to the checkout page.
- If you are ready to book, click on the blue “Book Now” button to take you to the checkout page.
On the checkout page, you will select fare class (if available), enter the passenger information, and the payment information.
- Once you have reviewed the flight, the payment information, and agreed to the terms and conditions, you now click on the final, blue “Book Now” button to complete your flight purchase. You will see a page showing the booking was successfully completed.
Within a few minutes, a Skiplagged confirmation email will be sent to the inbox of the email address you used on the checkout page.
And that's it. You've booked your flight. Thank you for choosing us and safe travels!
