The are a lot of flights to Athens from all around the world and that’s’ a great thing. Before I start analyzing exactly when it is better for you to come in Athens we should first see when you should start searching and how you should tackle it in order for you to save money but also be there on time.
What I always use to my travels and you should use it when you are searching for flights to Athens is the google tracker, through google tracker you would be able to see which flights are better for you to take, compare prices, stops, times and also connecting airports. With google tracker you will be able to find the best possible flights to Athens.
Now you are going to ask, How can I do that? How can I find the cheapest but reliable flights to Athens?
First step is to start early, sometimes you can also find a great price last minute but that is not the case all the times. What I would suggest is to first see when you would like to visit Athens, if you would like to visit Athens on the summer or close to the summer then start searching on google tracker which you can find it on google.com/flights.
Input your dates that you would like to visit and then the tracker will show you first the best departing flights, you can sort by price, departure time, arrival time and also duration. According to your needs or what you prefer you can use the sorting in order to define something closer to your needs.
Another great thing on using the google tracker is that when you actually click on the month you will be able to see the best prices or days on that month. E.g. if you let’s say don’t arrive on Friday but on Thursday or don’t leave on Sunday but on Monday you would be able to save at least 50$. Check the photo below:
Last thing that you can also do if you wouldn’t want to commit but you would like to catch the sudden drop in the prices for the flights to Athens is to click the “Track prices” button which will give you real time updates on your google e-mail with the changes on the prices on the specific destination.
