I Want That Flight

I Want That Flight

I Want That Flight

During my weekly walk and catch up with friends, aka the WINOE’s (Women in Need of Entertainment), we decided that travel is a big priority for our impending ‘golden years’. None of us are getting any younger and the majority of us are either retired or semi-retired from full-time employment so we are fairly flexible with our time and we have fewer family commitments.

We recently made an unanimous decision to search for any bargain holiday deals for a girl’s getaway and take advantage of it if something appealing came along. When I get wind of the possibility of travel I instantly feel exhilaration. Travel and the chance to visit new and exotic places is what I love most in the world.

I Want That Flight

A New Flight Booking Website

So I tell the girls, “I have just heard about this great flight booking website called I Want That Flight. How it works, is that you enter the destination of where you would like to travel to and the website searches for all possible flights with both airlines and travel agencies. But the best thing is that if you are flexible with dates you can sign up for a travel alert and wait until the cheapest air fares become available”.

I Want That Flight Home Page

Some of us are subscribed directly to one of the airlines and get emailed specials on a regular basis, but not to one website that compares every airline. Some websites like Webjet or Expedia already do an air fare comparison, but they charge fees, unlike this new website. We agreed that I Want That Flight is definitely going to be the tool we need to get us on that bargain holiday in the near future.

How I Want That Flight Works

You can do a basic search from I Want That Flight’s home page and it will bring up all options for either domestic or international flights for specific dates, or if you are flexible with dates it will search for the cheapest flights. It then takes you directly to the airline’s booking page to book the flight.

How to Find The Cheapest Flights

As well as basic search from the homepage, there are pages specially set up to help find you the cheapest flights, based on how flexible your travel dates are. For example if I chose Bali as my destination:

Cheap Flights Melbourne to Denpasar (Bali), Indonesia.

Return flights shown.

Flying Jetstar Airways. Return flights from $415

Dep. Thu 19/Feb/15Ret. Wed 25/Feb/15Economy$415 Select Flight

Dep. Thu 19/Feb/15Ret. Thu 26/Feb/15Economy$415 Select Flight

Dep. Thu 19/Feb/15Ret. Fri 27/Feb/15Economy$415 Select Flight

Also it shows when the cheapest months are to fly:

    What a great idea. It’s a pity I won’t be travelling anywhere for ages but I’ll pass the site on.

      You and me both Jo. We’ll be looking for a little holiday to Bali once we’ve sold our house.

    Terrific idea, Kathy and I’m definitely signing up. I love the idea that you and your friends have come up with about booking a getaway. Thinking about travel is so exciting and once you book well the excitement just keeps building. Love the name WINOE’s – perfect! Thanks for the info and have a great week!

      We are maybe looking a trip to Bali at the moment, but getting a group of 6 ladies to commit to a date is rather difficult! I can highly recommend this flight booking website. I have been using it for ages and it’s the best. #TeamLovinLife

    Yes I am signed up too. It breaks my heart every time I get an alert because we aren’t travelling this year, but one can always dream.

    • Kathy
      July 12, 2018

      You and me both Jan! We’re not making too many travel plans at the moment which is killing me also. #TeamLovinLife

      I’m sure we will. Last time we went to Krabi, Thailand, so who knows where we’ll end up this time. That’s the beauty of this website – it gives you the best deals to anywhere in the world. #TeamLovinLife

    It’s a great idea. I love sites that offer you a chance to shop around and make comparisons.

    I’m not as enamoured with travel though I guess, as you know. The thing I’m excited about re retirement is just not having to work!

    • Kathy
      July 12, 2018

      Not having to work is not what it’s cracked up to be Deb. You still need to substitute some sort of stimuli in lieu of work. I’m hoping to keep working part-time for a while yet. This flight comparison website is one of the best ones I’ve encountered.

  • Christine

    This is one I haven’t heard of. I do love these sites which make holiday planning so easy.

    • Kathy
      July 12, 2018

      Yes this particular website is very good. I can highly recommend it. #TeamLovinLife

    WINOE’s. LOL!! I want that flight to London. I’ve not been there yet and can’t wait to hop from there to Paris to Greece and beyond.
    Will bookmark this post. #teamlovinlife

      Well we are women in need of entertainment and we all like wine!!! I think a flight to London would be fantastic. I’m yet to discover a lot of Europe and hope to remedy this soon.
