Kayak Explore: cheap airline tickets based on your budget
A neat new online tool from travel firm Kayak tells you where you can fly, based upon your available budget. Simply pop your departure airport into Kayak Explore, tell it how much you can spend, and when you want to fly - and the service will deliver a map of the world with little pins showing how much it'll cost to fly there.
The site gathers its data from the millions of airfare combinations Kayak monitors, and allows you to find real bargains. Of course, with a tool like this, you can also find ways to maximize your mileage account, finding the furthest destination with the lowest price. Search filters even allow you to pick activities, spoken languages, and the average daily temperature.
The one thing the tool won't do is tell you exactly when that fare can be found - the fare displayed is merely the lowest within a general time frame. Once you've found a cheap destination, you can enter your dates and head to the main Kayak search pages. You'll find Kayak Explore at kayak.com/explore. Happy fare hunting!
