As a tech blogger, I love my apps. Honestly, I’ve often wondered how I ever managed to get anything done before the era of smartphones! There are apps for everything these days and it can get overwhelming. That’s why when I find an app that stands out I enjoy telling others about it. That’s why I’m excited about our new App of the Week feature here at 2 Wired 2 Tired and I’m happy to start it off with a review of a fantastic flight search app.
I recently discovered the Sky Scanner app. I downloaded it because the tagline drew me in, “All flights, everywhere!” It enables you to search millions of flights on over 1,000 airlines. The reviews sealed the deal. There were testimonials from passengers and even an airline pilot who used it to book difficult to find flights for great prices. Sky Scanner is more than your typical flight search app.
I love it because while you can enter your departing and arriving airport and input your travel dates like a typical travel app, it’s wonderful for flexible travel search. You can use the location setting on the app and it will find your nearest airport or you can set it for a specific departing airport. Then you can have it search all flights everywhere.
It will then separate flights into categories by country. Click either the country you want to travel to or, as I like to do, the cheapest flight. Next it will display flights flying out of your airport in order of cheapest to pricey.
It’s fun to use especially when you have the itch to travel but aren’t sure where you want to go and the budget’s tight. Sky Scanner makes it easy to see where the cheapest flights are flying to and when.
The Sky Scanner app is perfect for not only the travel day dreamer but also for when you need to buckle down and find a flight right away. It’s my new favorite flight search app and I can’t wait to use it to book our next trip!
What about you? What app do you enjoy using to find deals on flights?
