Frequently asked questions on Secret Flying


Who are Secret Flying?
We are a team of passionate travellers who provide details to the most incredible flight deals around the world.
Are you a travel agency?
No. We simply tell you when a cheap flight exists. No transactions are made with us therefore we do not issue any tickets.
How does it work?
When we find a great deal, we immediately post details about the fare on our website. If you like the deal, proceed to book with one of our booking partners e.g. Skyscanner. It’s as simple as that.
Is it safe?
Yes, it is totally safe. We simply divert you to reputable travel search companies and airlines where you can book the flight deal. You don’t provide us with any personal or payment information.
Is it free?
Yes, Secret Flying is completely free of charge. Anyone can benefit from the deals posted on this website.
No membership is required.
Do the deals expire?
The deals we find are so great that they usually sell out fast. We recommend you download our free app and register to receive instant flight deal alerts.
See here.
What does Open-Jaw mean?
Some of our flight deals are open-jaw flights. This means that either the flight returns to a different location to where it all began or the outgoing destination is different to the incoming origin.

The following are two examples of an open-jaw flight:

Example 1:
Outgoing: NEW YORK – TOKYO
Incoming: TOKYO – BOSTON

Example 2:

Incredible savings can be made with our open-jaw flight deals.

Can I book a trip with dates that are not in your example dates list?
Absolutely. Our example dates are exactly that…examples.

You can usually find more dates that work for the advertised price. Have a play around on the booking site to find dates that suit you.

Bear in mind, when there is limited availability it may be very hard for you to find some dates at the advertised price.

I booked a Secret Flying flight. Who can I speak to regarding changes/refunds?
Remember, Secret Flying simply informs its users of cheap flight deals that exist.
You did not make your booking with us.

Please contact the booking website you purchased your ticket from and/or the airline you will be flying with.

I just checked the dates on a deal that was posted a few days ago. Why aren’t the links showing the advertised price?
Our flight deals don’t last forever. The really good ones sell out very quickly. Also, ticket prices often fluctuate – what works today, may not work tomorrow.

If you are looking at a deal that was published more than a few days ago, there’s a good chance that deal no longer works for the advertised price.

Download the FREE Secret Flying app to receive instant alerts the moment we publish a flight deal.
This way you’ll never miss a Secret Flying deal again. See here.

Do you have an email subscription/newsletter?
Yes we do. You can sign-up to our daily email newsletters here.

However, our smartphone app is a lot more personalised as it sends out instant flight deal alerts based on the departure cities you have subscribed to.

Our Flight Requests service is like having a personal travel agent.

We run a personalised flight search to find you the cheapest deal available.

We will then email you soon after with a list of the cheapest flights based on your search criteria.
