How to discover where you can go – and get inspiration on where to travel next

Black Friday and Cyber Monday is a great time to plan your next adventure. But our goal at Skyscanner is to keep you informed and inspired about travel, all year round – from making sure you know which destinations are open, to inspiring you for the future.

Discover where you can go now

Find where's open now with Skyscanner's interactive map

With government guidelines changing all the time due to COVID-19, it’s important to have an easy way to see which destinations are open right now. This is where our interactive ‘Where’s Open?’ map comes in. When using the free Skyscanner app, simply type in the destination you’re interested in travelling to and look out for the red or green dot next to it. If it’s green, it means this destination is open to travellers right now.

Set up alerts for your dream destinations to know when you can travel there again

What if there’s a red dot next to your dream destination? Unfortunately, that means this destination is not currently open to travel from the UK. But government guidelines can change from one minute to the next. To make sure you won’t miss out on great flight deals once your destination becomes available, you can click the ‘Get travel updates’ button. We will then email you with updates once restrictions change – and with the best deals to get you there.
