15. Use a vpn
Airline ticket prices can differ depending on what country you are surfing from!
In my own experience, trying the same search from different countries through using a vpn might yield very different prices.
Try booking from the United Arab Emirates, the United States and even other European or Asian countries.
Why? because taxes differ depending on the country AND not all airlines are licensed to be sold in ever country. When booking through skyscanner.co.uk we got different results for our flight to Kathmandu than when we looked on skyscanner.ae.
The latter was a lot cheaper!
