We’re the travel company who puts you first

Travel your way

When we started in 2003, we set out to do things differently. We wanted to show all flight options in one place, creating a simple alternative to the confusing sites that make travel feel like hard work.

Fast forward to today and we’ve gone from a flight search engine to a global leader in travel. We're proud that more than 100 million people across the world (that's quite a few!) rely on our app and website each month to help them with their travel plans.

Dedicated to making travel as simple as possible, we help each and every one of them find the best options across flights, hotels and car hire to book the perfect trip.

But we’re not stopping there.

It’s our mission to lead the global transformation to modern and sustainable travel

What we mean by modern travel

Travel is all about freedom. So it makes sense that planning and booking your trip should be simple, not a chore.

We know you're looking for the best prices and most flexibilty to choose what's right for you. Which is why we're always hard at work making sure our app and website are super straightforward and speedy.

Choose where you want to go, when you want to go and get the very best price from thousands of sites without having to look anywhere else. Plus, check out all the ways we can help you find a trip that's tailored to what you’re looking for, no matter your travel style or your budget.

Feeling flexible? Search ‘Everywhere’ to see where you can go for a great price. Got a destination in mind? Use our Price Alerts to find out when the fare changes.

And once you know when and where you’re going, book in just a few quick steps, whether on our app or website which are available in more than 30 languages.

What we mean by sustainable travel

Travel is one of life's greatest pleasures. And we want each generation to be able to experience that joy.

We give you all options so you can make the decision that’s right for you. That includes our 'Greener choice' label which highlights the flights that emit less CO2 and we’ve already helped more than 10 million travellers select the lowest emissions flight for their route.

It’s just the start but we’re serious about sustainability and hold ourselves to account. We buy sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to help offset any travel we do here at Skyscanner. We're a team that's committed to discovering new ways to explore the world in a way that benefits both people and places.

We also know we can’t solve this challenge alone. That's why we’re working with the Duke of Sussex, and industry leaders, to form Travalyst. Together we’re a catalyst for change, committed to helping everyone explore our world for generations to come.
