3. Secret Flying
Secret Flying is a blog that posts incredibly cheap flight deals that you might have to search hours for to find yourself. The site covers both Europe and North America. The site is pretty straightforward in the way that deals are labelled, and expired offers are clearly marked. When you enter a post on the site, it will tell you the different routes you can take and the price for each. Many of the deals listed are departing from Mainland Europe, as these tend to offer lower fares than when you depart from the UK, due to the UK Air Passenger Duty.
HolidayPirates is a blog run by the HotUKDeals network which posts low cost holidays on a regular basis. You'll find error fares, hidden deals and more as part of their regular content updates. HolidayPirates primarily features deals for those based in the UK, but the site operates multiple other sites for different markets, including the US, Germany and Italy.
