Can I save money using a travel app?

Yes, you can save money using a travel app. You can compare and bookmark cheap flights, hotel deals, and reliable car hire with Skyscanner’s all-in-one flights app.

So how does the travel app work?

Skyscanner’s travel app works in a number of ways, and we’ve listed our top five features so you can crack the cheap flights market without a single bead of sweat.

Does the Skyscanner travel app work on Android or iPhone?

Yes, you’re in luck! Because the Skyscanner travel app works on both Android and iOS platforms, so no matter what phone you’ve got you’ll be able to find cheap flights, hotels, and car hire deals with our app.

Tip 1: All roads lead to this app

So you know you can quickly compare flight prices with the Skyscanner app, but you can also filter them by the number of stopovers they have, duration of the journey, departure times, carriers, and even cabin class.

After you sort your flights, you can flip to our hotel search, and assess hotels by their star ratings, their reviews, and of course their price. Try our new Map View feature, which shows you the location of your filtered hotels on an interactive map. Zoom in on the neighbourhood of each hotel and check their proximity to bars, to transport, to attractions, and to famous landmarks. Then just touch the hotel of your choice to see their star rating and the tallied price of a stay there.

Lastly, sift through car deals with our Search Cars function, decide on your pick-up location, and then select your vehicle by transmission, model, star rating, and price.

Tip 2: Shake up your plans by searching ‘everywhere’

Need a break but unsure of where to go? Then literally search ‘everywhere’ by popping that term in the destination bar of our app. We’ll whip up every place you can fly to, domestic and internationally, and show you approximate prices to boot.

And, if you’re ultra flexible, change your dates to read ‘anytime’ so we can find you the cheapest month to fly, no matter your destination.

Tip 3: Try exploring

With our Explore tab, you can search the ‘everywhere’ feature, but you can also look at destinations tailored for quick getaways, solo travel, kid free, or last minute trips.

You can also peruse the deals by the weekend, or the month.

Tip 4: Use Price Alerts

Price Alerts are the best friend of the bargain hunter and the easy-going traveller alike; setting up a price alert on your chosen route means you can track prices without having to check back every day as we’ll send you a notification alert as soon as prices change (for the better or the worse). That way you will be sure you’re snapping up those flights for the best price possible.

Tip 5: Keep informed with our good to know feature

We’re all pretty confident when it comes to booking flights, but with our Good to Know function you can be confident about boarding, transfer times, and time differences, as we’ll list everything for you. It’s like the ultimate dad-app.

Tip 6: Save your flight details with a single click

When you find a flight you like, click the heart at the top of the screen to save it to your ‘Upcoming Trips’ section. There, you can quickly check the flight details and see details from past flights taken.
