How does the Skyscanner app save me money?

At one glance, our new Explore Top Deals feature showcases a variety of budget-friendly flights to a list of destinations. But not only for budget travellers, spontaneous travellers looking for last-minute weekend getaways have the option to select weekend deals for the next four weekends too. There’s even an option for city breaks and summer holiday deals!

The other feature that helps you save money is our Everywhere search. This is perfect for those who have specific travel dates in mind but aren’t sure yet where to go. You might be surprised by the number of must-see places you can tick off your travel bucket list without breaking the bank!

Our new app offers instant flight search results – yes, no more waiting for results to load as searches start automatically behind-the-scenes. The search results are instantly refreshed, allowing a frictionless search experience.

In addition, to help you identify the best flights quickly, the Skyscanner app now incorporates a timeline view for easy access to destinations that you had searched previously in the Explore Top Deals section. Look out also for filters that let you order your results by price, duration and ratings – which combines the number of stops, duration and price in the form of a smiley face or frowning face with a numbered rating.

In addition, by syncing with hotel and car hire dates and location, this now means a frictionless travel planning experience. Gone are the days where you wasted precious time inputting (and re-inputting!) your destinations, check-in dates and times and pick-up locations. You can also easily see all important information such as the reviews, price and images in the revamped hotels booking view.
