UK and back on different airlines?

Hi - don't know if anyone can help. We met two separate people in Turkey last year who had got really good flight deals by buying one-way tickets with 2 different carriers. Has anyone else done this? If so, could you give any tips and hints (and pitfalls if applicable). We are flying to Bodrum in October.

Fingers crossed

Dolly

Re: UK and back on different airlines?

No problem flying with 2 different airlines, just make sure that they both allow you the same luggage weight.

Re: UK and back on different airlines?

we've done it lots, we book single flights even when travelling with say easy jet both ways as we only want 1 hold bag going and say 3 coming back, even this saves money. Check with all carriers, pick out their best prices then try and match up 2 flight dates that suit you

Just open up two windows and time the bookings just right.

Re: UK and back on different airlines?

Use a site like Skyscanner.net to help you find the best flights; it graphically shows you the flights from each airline to any destination. Simply pick the flights that are best for you, and ignore which airline their with!

The guide here will show you how to get the best from Skyscanner:

I hope this helps,

Cool Re: UK and back on different airlines?

Thanks all! Very useful. No problem with booking to Turkey but can't seem to find anywhere where you can just book the flight back from Turkey. Am I missing something? Thanks Dolly

As suggested above use skyscanner it's quite a nifty website or just navigate to flythomascook - plenty of flights back from Turkey. I always book one-way flights sometimes with different airlines.
