With price details, booking links, and estimates on how long deals might last, all that’s left for you is to book the deal, pack a bag, and put up a pithy OOO message.

Elite FAQs
What's the big deal with Elite compared to Premium?

Don’t get us wrong, Premium members still have a pretty sweet setup. They get our best economy class deals and Mistake Fares from up to ten airports (vs. five airports for Limited members). But Elite members really tap into the full strength of our team. They can follow an unlimited number of airports, see Mistake Fares from every airport in the US, and are the only members who receive deals in premium economy, business, and first class.

I’m a Premium member. How do I upgrade to Elite?

Easy breezy. Simply hop over to the Plan Selection page of your profile and choose Elite. Just like that, you’ll unlock the complete power of Scott’s Cheap Flights. If you have a remaining membership fee balance on your account when you upgrade, we’ll apply that directly to your Elite membership, too. For example, if you paid $49 for a Premium membership at the beginning of the year, and it’s been six months, you’ll have $24 of prorated credit remaining on your account. We’ll take that and automatically apply it to your upgrade amount for a little bonus savings.

Are Premium and Elite deals really that much better? Limited is totally fine, right?

In our humble opinion, they definitely are. Premium members receive deals that Limited members will never see. That includes way more (and we mean waaaaaayyy more) deals from the airports they follow, and the ability to follow five extra airports. On top of that, they’ll see Mistake Fares and other rare deals not available on our free tier.

Elite members get all that plus more. They’re able to control the deals they receive, and they can see every single Mistake Fare we come across, no matter where it departs from in the US. Oh, and they can get deals for seats in premium economy, business, and first class so they can travel in style. So. Yeah. We’d say they’re that much better.

Mistake Fares from airports half a country away from where I live? Why would I want that?

OK, OK, hear us out. We know it sounds a little nuts, but we promise you it pays off. These flights are so cheap it truly does not matter where they leave from. It will still be worth it. Trust us.

For example, a roundtrip flight to Chile for $63 or a $354 fare to Australia (don’t laugh; those are real Mistake Fares we’ve seen) provide such mind-blowing savings, that booking another flight, even at full price, to get to the departure airport will still leave you with the deal of a lifetime. 

When you can see Mistake Fares from every single US airport, you’ve got more opportunities to score deals you’ll tell your grandkids about.

I dream of business and first class tickets. But that’s as far as I’ll get. What’s the average cost of one of these flights for Elite members?

We’re here to make dreams come true. Our deals will make sitting in the fancy part of the plane a reality. You can expect to see business class deals in the $500s to Mexico and the Caribbean, around $1,200 to Latin America, $1,700 to Europe, and $2,200 to Asia. Time for that long-awaited upgrade.

These prices are obviously too good to be true. They’ve got to come with a ton of layovers and on those airlines, you only take as a total last resort, right?

Never! Price is actually only one part of a deal. It just gets most of the attention. But the rest has to be worth it, too. That means good airlines, sensible routing, reasonable layovers, and no crazy fees. We call it our Bestie Test—if we wouldn’t put our best friend on the flight, we wouldn’t show it to you.

Are your deals for last-minute travel? Am I going to have a book a ticket and leave for the airport an hour later?

Nope! Most deals won’t depart for 2-9 months. Although if you are interested in cutting loose on a whim, check out the Weekend Getaways we send your way, which are nonstop domestic and quick international flights departing within the next month. Premium and Elite deals will often also include summer, peak season, and holiday availability.

If I’m not ready to book right away, do I have time to think it over before booking?

We let you know how long we expect each deal to last. You'll generally only have a day or two before the fare changes—but often only a few hours for a Mistake Fare. 

Our advice: Use the 24-hour rule to your advantage. If you book directly with the airline, you can cancel for free within 24 hours of booking. That way you can snag an amazing deal before it's gone, and then have a day to decide if you want to take the trip.

I’m not ready to try Premium or Elite. Can I still get deals?

Of course! You can sign up as a Limited member, which means you’ll see a small subset of our deals. That said, if you’re serious about flying cheaply to more destinations, we strongly encourage you to try Premium. And if you want to get business and first class deals or receive Mistake Fares from all US airports, Elite is the way to go.
