Skyscanner App Review
Introduction to Skyscanner App
In particular, the Skyscanner app searches millions of flights from over 1,200 different travel web sites in seconds. For this reason, the Skyscanner app gives you the great deals on flights to anywhere in the world.
Furthermore, the Skyscanner App has won many awards including the best travel app by the New York Times, Webby Awards, Appy Awards and Timeout.
How to Use Skyscanner App
When you open the Skyscanner App, it knows where you are if you have your location feature turned “on” in your smartphone or tablet. For this purpose, the app automatically gives you options to choose a flight from where you are to anywhere.
On the other hand, also the app allows you to enter the starting location, final destination, round trip or one way, direct or how many stops, preferred flying class and number of passengers.
After pressing enter, the app gives you a list of flights that specifically match your criteria. Afterwards, filter this list in a number of ways including price, travel time, number of stops and more.
Subsequently, tapping on the flight that interests you, brings you to that travel website where you see more detailed information. Lastly, book your flight on the site that you have chosen.
Skyscanner App Extra Features
The Skyscanner App has so many extra special extra features that set it apart from other travel apps. These special features specifically include:
- Chart showing typical flight prices around your specific travel date. In other words, this tells you if it may be better to fly a day or two earlier or later.
- Table showing the flight prices for an entire month. Notably, this is a great extra to see what day of the week or day of the month is the cheapest to fly.
- Watched flights. Watch a specific flight route. Get notifications when prices for the route you are looking at changes. Thus, this is a great extra to see if prices are going down or up.
- Recall recent searches from your phone or tablet.
- Explore by top deals.
- Flight Ratings by past users. Here, be confident you’re getting the perfect flight with color-coded ratings that cover price, number of stops & duration.
Alternatives to the Sky Scanner App
The biggest alternative to the Skyscanner App is the Kayak App. Likewise, the Kayak App offers finds deals by searching other travel sites. I’m not a fan of this app as it seems more minimal than the Skyscanner App.
