What is the best way to find cheap flights to Rome Italy?
The key is to be flexible if you can.
If you are flexible with your airline; number of stops you will make (and where!); and even willing to change your itinerary just a bit, you will have an easier time finding discount flights to Rome.
If you want to find cheap flights to Rome Italy, your best bet is to use a website that shows consolidated fares and compares them. The best one is probably Kayak. If you can be flexible in your dates, and even with the number of stops you are willing to make, you will be more likely to find cheap tickets to Rome.
At the time of this writing, I have had numerous friends fly to Rome from the US via Moscow, on Aeroflot. They had a layover in Moscow, but tickets to Rome from the US can be up to $500 cheaper this way. So try to be flexible in your route and number of stops, and you may have more luck finding cheap flights to Rome.
Depending on where you fly from, you may find a better deal getting a cheap ticket to Rome if you can come from another European city.
If you can get a good fare into a major hub city, such as, London, Berlin, or Amsterdam, you can then switch airlines (even airports in many cases), and get on a low-cost carrier, or even a different European carrier, that will take you to Rome for a lower airfare than in you'd connected on your into-Europe airline.
If you are flexible in your travel plans, you could also get the added bonus of visiting another city before or after your Rome trip.
The downside of this is that when you connect to a different carrier (or airport), and it's not all part of the same ticket, you are out of luck and on your own if your original flight is delayed and you miss your connection.
Europe is now teeming with many low-cost carriers that fly to Rome (but they only fly from other European cities.) Some budget airlines that fly to Rome from other parts of Europe include RyanAir, Easyjet, Vueling, WizzAir and German Wings.
But you might be surprised to find that major carriers are competing with these low-cost carriers to Rome, and in some cases, you can get cheap Rome flights from other European cities even on one of the major carriers (and get your airline miles!)
A unique option for getting cheap airfare to Rome Italy from other European cities is to use the website WhichBudget. On this site, you can type in a city name and find all the budget airlines that come to Rome from there.
