Three Ways to Find Cheap Tickets for Traveling:
1. App: Scyscanner
Scyscanner is a great tool to use when searching for the cheapest fly tickets in Europe. Search over long time and you can travel really cheap.

2. If you travel in Sweden by train use low price calendar SJ, (lågpriskalendern). If you search in longer time you can get much cheaper tickets like Gothenburg-Stockholm 199 kr (one way) normally it can be over 500kr.
Also if you travel look at all the different prices during the day, normally it varies over the day. Often it is half price some time during the day, if you have time you can save money.
