Today’s Killer Startup: Skyscanner
Find the cheapest flights from anywhere to anywhere with the Skyscanner app.
Why It’s A Killer Startup
Skyscanner is an app and website that seems to be targeted specifically toward people who travel frequently and have flexible schedules. The app lets you be as specific or as general as you want when searching for flights, including searching for flights from an entire country or leaving open and return dates completely open.
While most people probably can’t just fly whenever, there are definitely some folks (like me and my digital nomad boyfriend) who know that they’re going to be going somewhere at some point and just need a good idea of how much the flight could possibly cost. That situation is where Skyscanner really shines.
For example, right now I know that we’ll be leaving our current home, Guatemala, sometime next year. I don’t know when and I don’t know where – just that it will happen because that’s what we do. I can put Guatemala into Skyscanner as my departure country and the “Everywhere” as my destination and Skyscanner will pull up a list of flights, listed from cheapest to most expensive.
I can then scan through the countries and if one grabs my attention – let’s go with Ecuador, just because I haven’t been there yet – I can click on it and see a visualization of price fluctuations throughout the year. The app, therefore, can help me make a decision about where and when we’re going to live next.
Even non-frequent flyers can utilize Skyscanner’s flexibility when deciding where to head on vacation and when. It’s an easy-to-use, visually clear flight finder that will help you find the best deals out there. Check it out now at Skyscanner.net.
