It's always frustrating to miss out on promo airfares. There’s a pang of jealousy you feel deep inside as soon as you find out that someone you know is flying to your favorite destination—and that it was only booked for one-fourth of the price you had to pay for yours. (Sigh.) Luckily, you won’t have to go through that anymore as we’ve discovered the ultimate trick to getting the cheapest flights for your next travel plans.

We scored this genius hack from Jaypee Licudan, the blogger behind The Rustic Nomad, who was able to book a roundtrip flight from Manila to Shanghai for less than two thousand pesos! Here’s the simple trick he did:

1. Go to Skyscanner.com.ph. It’s a third party booking website that allows users to filter their travel options in search for the best flights available.

2. Choose the city where you’ll be flying from. Say, Manila Ninoy Aquino (MNL), for an example. But note that this trick will work wherever you are in the world.

3. On the destination, put “everywhere”—this will lead Skyscanner to automatically search ALL destinations available on your chosen date, starting with the cheapest possible fare. 

Need an example? Check out how Jaypee was able to book his flight for a great bargain below.

What are you waiting for? It's time to book your next trip!
