In order to hop from one country to another for the lowest possible price, all it takes is some a/b testing and about 15 – 30 minutes.

I suggest using SkyScanner for flight booking, however you may have a personal favorite of your own already. This trick works on just about every travel website.

How to get the Best Price on Flight Bookings

Step 1: Clear your cache –that means everything since the beginning of time. Cookies, history, cache, everything.

Step 2: Before searching for a flight, adjust country / location settings. Explore costs for different neighboring countries to your desired destination. You may need to reset the website language after choosing a country near your destination from the drop-down on the top right of their website homepage.

Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2.

Pro tip: Consider browsing anonymously through the TOR Network, Incognito or Privacy Mode, or trying a VPN in some of your tests. There is no hard lined combination that works every single time, so be creative.

Why does this work?

Clearing your cache and searching from another country whether by VPN or by website location settings can have a positive effect on the cost of your flight booking.

Your browser shares a lot of information about you to websites you visit, and your online explorations may put you in a higher cost bracket when it comes to buying airfare.

Specific Chiang Mai-related Airfare Tip

It is cheaper to pick up a flight to Chiang Mai after you arrive at either Bangkok airport than it is to book your connecting flight to Chiang Mai from Bangkok in advance.

You could save around $200 – $400 just by booking your flight to Chiang Mai from Bangkok in person in Bangkok, right at the airport. You can get a flight to Chiang Mai from Bangkok for as low as $50.
