How Filters for Searching for Air Tickets on RateHawk Work

Almost all resources have search filters, whether they are for booking hotels or online electronics stores. When selecting air tickets, filters are just as important: selecting a comfortable departure time, ruling out indirect flights, selecting luggage options and the right to cancel the ticket — all these parameters enable you to save time on searching for the appropriate flight. Today we tell you about filters for booking air tickets on RateHawk.

The filter allows you to select only direct flights (‘Direct flight’) or to limit the number of connections (option ‘Up to 1 stop’).


If you plan to fly only with hand luggage, then you can deselect the option of taking checked baggage and thereby narrow the search range. Alternatively, when you are sure you will need to check-in baggage, the filter will also allow you to sort for appropriate options.

Ticket refund and ticket exchange

In recent months the world has returned to stability, but we remain susceptible to unexpected news. To reduce the risks, you can select cancelable air tickets or those that you may exchange in the event of an emergency.

Time limits

A time limit shows when you have to pay for the tickets. You may set this parameter between 23 hours (the minimum) and 14 days (the maximum).

Departure and arrival time

Some people like to depart early in the morning, while others prefer evening flights — select the most comfortable times on all flights that you require.

Duration of stop

If you don’t mind having a connection but want to limit it to a couple of hours rather than days on end, then enter a comfortable time in the respective filter.

Travel time

Sometimes situations occur when you need to get there within a certain time, for example, you need to make a particular event in another city or a client asks you to select the fastest possible flight so that their child doesn’t get weary on the journey. You can show this time using the relevant filter, and separately for outbound and return flights.


This filter is useful when you want to select, for example, the airport closest to the office or home.


If you or your clients have favourite airlines you can select them during the search process.

All selected filters are shown in the row at the top. If you change your mind about any of the filters then you can reset the filter you don’t need or reset them all at once. The search results in the filters can be additionally sorted using the Cheaper, Faster, Optimal and By the ticket time limit parameters.
