In the above table, you can see that faredrop deals (hacker fare)are actually not as cheap as they claimed. Read till the end before trying their first 30 days free trial.
If you google search ‘Faredrop deals’, you will find some people are claiming that they have got cheap flight deals using FareDrop first 30 days free trial. After all, who doesn’t like cheap deals? So, based on those positive reviews I’m analyzing faredrop deals (hacker fares)which I got from Faredrop in my 30 days free trial.
Step by step I’ll show you why faredrop subscription deals are not worth anything. Faredrop has claimed to provide the cheapest deals available for your selected countries and time frame.
After signup and registering on faredrop, I got 9 cheap deals in 9 different mails on the same day from FareDrop. Honestly, I got excited and straightaway opened all the mails to know these deals really legit or it’s just a new way of business.
1st Comparison: Fly to Toronto round trip to Chicago Faredrop deals(error fare)
Actually, their mail said ‘Hi Vikram, Toronto round trips to Chicago dropped to $228 for some dates in November through October. These are the lowest fares (error fares)we’ve seen recently, much lower than the average $500’.
Basically, in the above-mentioned image, you can see some of the cheap and best airfare deals (Faredrop quoted). Also, the difference between normal fare $500 and they’re quoted hacker fare $228(dropped fare) is around $272 which was great. Surely, $228 is not a small amount when it comes to budget travel.
Interestingly, faredrop claims to help its users the cheapest flights available but surprisingly, when I was comparing these fares (error fares)on Skyscanner, look at what I found. Dates are around the same time in November.

Not only I found cheaper Toronto round trips to Chicago, but also around the same dates. Undoubtedly, there is a difference of $62 between my researched fare on Skyscanner and FareDrop quoted fare.
#You can also find the cheapest deals here(other than faredrop) easily in 5 minutes like I found, using Skyscanner and Wego together.
Evermore, you can find the best deals which I found here, available throughout the day. Undoubtedly, for a budget traveler like me, $62 saving can be useful for 3 days travel budget, especially in Asian countries.
2nd Comparison: Flight to Edmonton round trips to Sydney deal
Similarly, their mail said, ‘Hi Vikram, Edmonton round trips to Sydney dropped to $1107 for some dates in December through September. These are the lowest fares we’ve seen recently, much lower than the average $1600’. Faredrop has quoted me these below-mentioned deals or error fares.
Previously, in the 1st comparison, the difference between my fare and Faredrop error fare was around $62 however, you’ll be surprised to know that I found $302 cheaper than faredrop quoted. Nevertheless, look by yourself in the picture down below.
- Error Fare is noted on 19/11/2019
Surprisingly, you can easily compare both images and see that there is a $302 difference between faredrop deals quoted fare and my fare. Even I was surprised to see this much difference in the two fares.
I’ve traveled India to Thailand round trip is $176 and more surprisingly my total travel cost for 12 days was less than $500. What I’m trying to say here, at $300, you can easily enjoy a round trip to a beautiful place like Thailand or any Asian country(except Japan & Singapore).
Certainly, $302 is not a small amount and if you can save that amount without paying any ‘Subscription fee’ then it’s a way to go. Use my method to find cheap deals on flight tickets.
3rd Comparison: Fly to Perth round trips to Phuket deal
Similarly, the mail said in this deal as well, ‘Hi Vikram, Perth round trips to Phuket dropped to $291 for some dates in January through October. These are the lowest fares we’ve seen recently, much lower than the average $600. This deal is on budget airlines, and extra fees may apply’.
As you can see in the above image, Faredrop has quoted $322 Jan-Dec throughout but when I searched on Skyscanner, I found a $104 cheaper than Faredrop quoted error fare in February. Look in the image down below.

Finally, you can see the fare difference is $104 and also without any subscription fee of $3.99/month paid yearly $47.88.
Recommended Apps/Websites for cheap airfares flight search
In this Faredrop legit deals (error fare) analysis, you can easily differentiate that fare drop error fares(deals) are not cheap. Indeed expensive, airline tickets prices from fare drop are costlier than what I saw on other best flight websites like Skyscanner (used in this report).
However, faredrop may be helpful in identifying the cheap airfares if you are looking for a specific month but I don’t think the subscription fee is doing any good for you. Instead, for the problem-free journeys, invest in a good quality rucksack backpack or travel trolley bag. Not surprisingly, you can find flights for the cheapest airfares on your own and without any subscription fee as well.
Basically, Faredrop was unable to produce, ‘Up to 80% off flights around the world’. Despite this, I researched all 9 deals other than these three comparisons.
Comparatively, you can even find cheaper fare than, what I’ve found on Skyscanner. All you need to try with different months and cities if that’s possible for you. Actually, for a cheap airfare flight deals, I use Skyscanner and Wego together to get even cheaper fare than what Skyscanner quotes always.
My final verdict on Fare Drop.com
I would still suggest you try 30 days free trial at least and compare their so-called best/cheap domestic or international flights with my free ‘cheapest flight booking trick‘. Generally, people don’t have time to do a lot of research and some do not want to do any research may be lack of knowledge, just looking for an easy way to get the best flight deals.
I won’t recommend Faredrop after the free trial. Actually, you’ll realize after some time, using their subscription plan isn’t truly helping, if you compare with Skyscanner or any other website like Skyscanner. There is a reason, Skyscanner is the no. 1 reliable website when it comes to cheap flight searching from last 3-4 years.
Also, I have booked Thailand tickets from Delhi, India to Phuket, Thailand for less than $80 using this trick. To book cheap flight tickets, you can use Skyscanner which is my personal favorite or many others like Wego, Kayak, and Momondo as well.
Perhaps, you can get a last-minute flight deal from faredrop but for that, you need to pay $47.99/ yearly because there is no guaranty that you’ll get the last minute flight deal in the first 30 days free trial.
