Looking for super cheap flights?

What is it: Cleverlayover.com

Serial travellers appreciate the value of a cheap flight. If you're not too fussed on inflight luxuries, and aren't in too much of a hurry, flying on a budget can cut your costs. But if you're really looking to save pennies, you have the option of going "budget-budget", which can save you about 50% on normal fares.

Flying with long layover periods isn't really a new trend. Backpackers are traditionally skilled when it comes to travelling cheap, which almost always includes flying budget-airline-to-budget-airline from country to country. Seated with the cargo? No problem! It's all part of the adventure.

If you can handle a 10-hour or more layover (and are particularly fond of duty-free shopping), try booking your next flight through CleverLayover. Instead of scouring the internet for all the connecting flights yourself, the new website can give you the cheapest round trip in the click of a button. The savings are pretty hard to beat, with fares from Sydney to New York about $1000 return. The only downside is that the deals are currently only available in American dollars. If you've got some extra green, it's definitely something to take advantage of.
