Way of finding cheapest flights from two destinations?

Found 7th Oct 2017
Hi,

I'm looking to go on holiday for a weekend in December (either flying on a Wednesday night and returning on a Sunday evening, or flying on a Friday night and returning on a Tuesday evening - or doing a Thursday-Monday if neither previous option works).

However, there will be 2 of us and both departing from different cities. I'll be flying from London - Gatwick or Luton, and the other will be flying from Moscow. We are trying to find the cheapest place that we can fly to to minimise the cost of our combined flights. However, all flight websites only compare the cost from one destination.

I'm wondering if there's a useful tool to find the place of minimum cost between two destinations - I've found some online but they really aren't very good at all and I dislike how optimal the search process is. I feel like there must be a good search tool out there for this kind of purpose.

If anyone could recommend anything I would be very appreciative!


Thanks

I'm not sure why you wouldn't just use the usual tools (Skyscanner, etc) and do the maths yourself.

Even using skyscanner yields having to check many combinations, per destination city - to optimise that entirely is very time intensive

Are you using the skyscanner monthly bar charts to quickly see the cheapest date combinations, or are you typing in specific dates to search

Yes but frustratingly you can't filter on times for these flights - since both of us will be flying after work we'll require evening flights and you can only apply such a filter once you've made a specific date selection!
The only thing I can suggest then is to give the search over to trailfinders who specialise in such flight searches.
