Deal Alert: ₹20K flights to Europe from India!

While surfing through Kayak Explore, i just found the best rates i’ve ever seen for Europe from India, via Kenya (Nairobi).

Kenya Airways Route:
Mumbai – Nairobi – Geneva – Nairobi – Mumbai

Upside: Mostly under ₹25K, averaging ₹23K (June 2019), lowest at
₹19.5K (October 2019).

Downside: You only accrue 50% on one of the flights, and only one of the flight fares is refundable. But this is still an amazing deal if you don’t care about the miles and if you’re certain about travel dates and also don’t mind a 3 – 10 hour layover.

2. SkyScanner Inspire

Similar to Kayak Explore, SkyScanner’s Inspire tool is simpler, though i prefer the former.

3. Google Flights

Most Android (or Google search) users would be familiar with this, when searching for flights. When you expand the search to ‘Explore Map’, the tool also allows you to look at the cheapest flights available for your exact dates or flex-dates, anywhere in the world!
