Make your search according to the date interval
For example, if you travel for the sake of a certain football match, then it can turn out that air tickets for this and previous days are the most expensive. For example, weekend flights are almost always more expensive than week-day tickets. There are also other price fluctuations.
If available, always search for other date flights. If you fly from far, then it is possible to save significantly. Even if you arrive earlier than planned, for leftover money you can stay for extra days and have a rest before the match. For your attention: the historic center of Saint Petersburg, the best Moscow clubs and restaurants, the warm sea and picturesque mountains in Sochi, and many other things!

Choose night flights
Night flights are usually cheaper. If you have time enough, you can buy a night flight for cost reasons and have a rest in the hotel next day.
Buy transfer flights
If you fly from far, you can buy transfer flights. Yes, there are a lot of direct flights to Moscow and Saint Petersburg, even from America over the Atlantic Ocean. But, as a rule, direct flights are significantly more expensive than transfer flights.
Tick the “transfer flight” checkbox in JetRadar, and you will see how much you can save thanks to change at a transit airport. You will not waste your time because in airport duty free shops you will always get something to do.
Buy air tickets in advance
Usually the cheapest flights can be bought in 2-3 months before departure. But the football championships are usually in great demand, and we recommend you to start searching tickets even earlier. Don't put off ticket purchase for the last moment.
