A perennial problem for travelers when planning a trip is the search for cheap flight tickets. As the prices for flights can change several times a day, it's crucial to know the optimal moment to book. However, manually tracking these prices can be both time-consuming and labor-intensive. Fortunately, there are apps available that allow users to set up price tracking, receiving alerts as soon as the ticket price goes up or down.

To address the challenge of tracking flight prices, we created a Telegram bot called AirTrack that has helped hundreds of thousands of people save on their flights. We have meticulously studied the pain points of our users, enabling us to build a product that stands out, especially with its Price Alert feature. This has led many users to prefer it over similar products. So, why should you trust AirTrack's price tracking bot?

With AirTrack, you can track the price for an entire route as well as for a specific flight.

  • If there's a price drop, you'll get an instant alert right on Telegram, so you won't miss it in a crowded inbox.
  • The bot's ease of use allows you to quickly find the cheapest flights and set up tracking with just one click.

In this guide, you'll find detailed instructions on how to set up alerts to find the cheapest flights using the AirTrack bot.

How to find the cheapest flights

To get started, you need to install the AirTrack bot in your Telegram messenger. To do this, follow the link and click the “Start” button, then follow the on-screen instructions.

To find the cheapest tickets, press the "New Search" button and enter your search parameters:

1. The type of search: One-way, Return, or Multi-city
2. Departure city and destination
3. Dates of your trip

Once you specify the parameters, the bot will find the best flight options for you.

How to create a Price Alert

To set up price alerts, click the "Track Prices" button at the bottom of the flight list.

That's it! As soon as the price for a flight changes, or if a cheaper flight becomes available for your dates, you will receive a notification.

Now, let's move on to the situation where you need to track the price for a specific flight. For instance, it's crucial for you to receive alerts only for non-stop flights. In such cases, you need to click on the command you'll find at the bottom of each flight listing.

And you will receive notifications about price changes only for the selected flight.

How often will I receive alerts?

The price of a flight can change due to various factors, so it's hard to say exactly how often this will happen. However, on average, prices change once every two days. But don't worry, as soon as the price changes, you will immediately receive a notification on Telegram.
