I’m a mum of 2 who loves to travel with (or without) my kids! I usually try and get away a few times a year and am always on the lookout for the cheapest flights, mainly on budget airlines like Easyjet or Jet2. I spend a lot of my time on Skyscanner and Momondo searching through flights too!
Through word of mouth, I found out about Jack’s Flight Club , a company that sends cheap flight deals to your inbox for free or for a paid premium membership option, you can get even more flight deals emailed to you each week. I opted for the premium membership option and this is my review;-
Where to start?
Simply enter your email address at Jack’s Flight Club and you will start receiving deals on cheap flights to your inbox. Jack scours the internet using a computer program which searches every fare on every route by all airlines waiting for the cost of a seat to fall – usually due to a flash sale or a “mistake fare”. He finds the best flight deals around including discounts, hidden offers and error fares. The flights are usually much cheaper than standard fares and you could end up saving £££’s.
Recent Roundtrip Deals Include:
- London to Tokyo: £248
- Manchester to Manila: £272
- Birmingham to Costa Rica: £319
- Inverness to Hawaii: £239
What’s The Catch?
There is no catch, well apart from you can’t specifically choose destinations and dates. This is not necessarily a bad thing- for one, it gives you inspiration for holiday destinations and you can keep your eye out and hope for the destination of your choice to crop up. If you are a frequent flyer or an impulse buyer then Jacks Flight Club would be right up your street! Some of the testimonials on the website really do show what great savings you can make with up to thousands of £££ in some cases!
How Does This Work?
Jack is a flight hacking ninja that you might have read about in the Daily Mail, Times or Lonely Planet. His passion is uncovering cheap flights and sharing them with his Flight Club members.
He believes that everyone should explore the world and enjoys uncovering the cheapest fares he can find and sharing them with his members so that they can be booked before they sell out! He’s different from flight comparison sites, which only supply you with cheapest advertised fares from various providers.
The flights aren’t last minute deals, they are various flights that can be booked for up 11 months away. As a premium member I get emails with tempting flight offers on nearly every day, on average 7-10 per week!
I also get the free member deals but before free members (an hour before). Error fares and the best deals often sell out quickly, so the sooner you know, the more likely you’ll secure a fantastic deal.
Premium Members can also select the departure airports they want to receive deals for and will only receive the most relevant deal alerts. So if you only want to be sent flights departing from London airports you can.
With premium membership I also get weekly ‘weekend trip’ alerts too, which could come in handy for a cheeky little trip away with the husband!
Jacks Flight Club now has over 600k members.

How Many Emails Will You Get?
Jacks Flight Club don’t take commissions for your clicks and are not affiliated with any airlines or bookings agents, so only send genuinely fantastic fare deals. On average, free members can expect 6-8 awesome deals per month. Premium Membership subscribers will receive 25-40 email alerts every month.
What Deals Can I Expect?
You can expect to receive all types of flights to worldwide destinations (short and long-haul) flying from the UK & Ireland. This week I have received emails with error fare to Penang from Manchester for £703, flights to India in the £200/£300s from across UK in Sept-May, *weekend trips* flights to Europe starting at £36 and Buenos Aires & Santiago in £400/£500s returns! Not a bad mix!
Is It Worth It?
If you’re not sure if you’ll use it, try the free membership. Jack’s Flight Club is best for those travellers who can be flexible. If you need to go to a specific destination on specific dates, the odds of that deal hitting your inbox are quite slim. But if you know you want to book a trip and aren’t too bothered about when or where, the service is a great source of inspiration and you could just find your dream trip landing in your inbox!
If like me, you love to travel, then I do think signing up for Premium membership is worth it as you get so many more deals sent to you than if you are a free member! In the grand scheme of things if you book one flight and it saves you over £100 then you are already making up for the small yearly subscription fee of just £35. You do have to be flexible and that’s where if you want to get organised for a family holiday in school break you may not want to risk waiting for great flights to come up! It’s best to keep your options open and remember to refer to the emails from time to time! You never know, you may just be able to book the holiday of your dreams on a shoestring budget!
