Get started with Mighty Fares – how to search and keep track of flight deals

What is Mighty Fares?

Mighty Fares is a global airfare deal site brought to you by the Mighty Travels team. Our mission is to show you all flight deals anywhere on the planet. Every day, every hour – in real time.

Caution: technical information ahead.

We analyze about one million airfares every day and post about 1,500 deals daily. We compute deals that are under a certain CPM value, which is a factor of how far your dollar gets you. The lower a CPM, the 'better' a deal it is.

Each deal is selected by AI but determined by parameters set by human editors. Our deal data comes from airlines, OTAs and search engines in real time. Since search and publishing is automated, we often show deals before anyone else does.

We post Economy Class deals only. For Business Class deals and exclusive Premium Content, please subscribe to our Premium Service.

When are deals published?

We post breaking deals as they appear, but we post most deals between 9AM and 1PM local time for any of the 11 regions we have grouped our deals in.

If you live in New York, most deals will appear between 9AM and 1PM Eastern Standard Time. However, we will publish breaking deals immediately.

Additionally, any deal that you find also has the links for how to keep track of deals from the same region or airport:

– All deals FROM an airport

Each deal comes with a number of tags.

MightyTravels 2016-10-19 at 10.32.41 AM

Find the tag that says ‘FROM-…’ so in our example this would be FROM-BRO (which is Brownsville, TX). All future deals FROM Brownsville, TX will appear on this page.

If you are a more advanced user, you can also modify the link directly, so the link in our Brownsville example looks like this:

http://mightyfares.com/blog/tag/from-bro/

Now simply replace ‘bro’ with ‘sfo’ and open this in your browser:

http://mightyfares.com/blog/tag/from-sfo/

You can bookmark this link; all deals FROM San Francisco, CA (SFO) will appear there, sorted by the newest deals first.

– All deals TO an airport

Similar to the last option above, we use tags for each article with the ‘TO’ information.

MightyTravels 2016-10-19 at 10.32.41 AM

Find the tag that says ‘TO-…’ so in our example this would be TO-JNB (which is Johannesburg, South Africa). All future deals TO Johannesburg, South Africa will appear on this page.

The link (as in our above example) looks like this:

http://mightyfares.com/blog/tag/to-jnb/

Now simply replace ‘jnb’ with ‘jfk’ and open this in your browser:

http://mightyfares.com/blog/tag/to-jfk/

You can bookmark this link; all deals TO New York, NY (JFK) will appear there, sorted by the newest deals first.

How to subscribe?

There are several options for you to subscribe to Mighty Fares.

1) Get Daily Fare Alerts via Email

MightyTravels 2016-10-19 at 10.40.39 AM

You can simply subscribe to our Daily Fare Alerts and get the deals for your favorite airport via email. There is a limit of one airport per email address, but there is no limit to use multiple email addresses.

2) Subscribe via Twitter

Each Mighty Fares deal is also published to Twitter. With Twitter, you have the choice of 11 regions to select as your DEPARTURE region.

MightyTravels 2016-10-19 at 10.05.16 AM

You can find the whole list in our sidebar (or when you open the slider bar below the content on a mobile device).

3) Use IFTTT

I personally use IFTTT every day and while setup can be a little tricky, it is a fantastic tool and really brings the internet alive.

To get started, find any of the following pages (such as we highlighted above) that have the information you would like to subscribe to:

– All deals FROM a country – for example: All deals from Germany

– All deals FROM an airport – for example: All deals FROM San Francisco, CA (SFO)

– All deals TO an airport – for example: All deals TO New York (JFK)

Each page comes with an RSS (or XML) feed. With IFTTT, you can use this as a trigger for a ‘new recipe’ and you will be notified once a new deal is published.

MightyTravels 2016-10-19 at 10.47.21 AM

To get the RSS (or XML) feed for each page, simply add ‘feed/’ to any given link. So in our examples it would be:

http://mightyfares.com/blog/category/germany/feed/

http://mightyfares.com/blog/tag/from-sfo/feed/

http://mightyfares.com/blog/tag/to-jfk/feed/

Price Filters

In addition we now also allow price filter options that allow you to select only deals under a certain price target.

– all deals from a country under a certain price target

Example Feed URL (all deals FROM Denmark under $600): http://mightyfares.com/feed/pricefilter/category/denmark/under/600/

– all deals from an airport under a certain price target

– Example Feed URL (all deals FROM Sydney under $400): http://mightyfares.com/feed/pricefilter/tag/from-syd/under/400/

Now it’s time to go to IFTTT.

Here’s the instructions for setting up an alert FROM San Francisco, CA (SFO) using IFTTT that sends an individual email to your email address once a deal is published.

After login/signup, click on your user name in the top right corner of the site and select ‘New Applet’.

1

Click on the highlighted word ‘this’ and then for ‘Choose a service’, select ‘Feed’:

2

For ‘Choose trigger’, choose ‘New feed item’:

3

Add the feed URL such as one we just created and then hit ‘Create trigger’:

4

Select the word ‘that’:

5

Select the Email option::

6

Click on ‘Send me an email’:

7

Confirm ‘Create action’:

8

Now click on ‘Finish’:
