Find travel inspiration with Skyscanner

Not sure where to go next? Get your travel plans back in motion with some Skyscanner-style inspiration. But be careful – once you start using our search tools, your 'to go' list will be as long as your arm.

🤔 Need destination inspiration?

We don’t like to toot our own trumpet, but we really do have the world’s most powerful travel search tools here at Skyscanner. When you search for a flight we scan thousands of routes and airlines to find the best price. It’s not just about hitting ‘search’ and hoping for the best, either. Our tools can give you inspiration and help you find the best breaks around.

🌍 Everywhere search

You’ve decided it’s time for an adventure, and you’ve booked some time off work, but that’s all you’ve got so far. If you’re not sure where you want to go – or even what kind of holiday you’re after – that’s where our Everywhere search comes in.

Just plug in your travel dates and your nearest airport, and we’ll show you the cheapest places to fly to. You might even discover your new favourite place.

🔔 Price alerts

Flight prices have an annoying tendency to fluctuate, going up or down based on supply and demand. Rather than searching every day, you can keep an eye on the cost of tickets by setting up price alerts.

We’ll let you know if that dream flight suddenly drops – or leaps – in price with an email alert straight to your inbox.

📚 Easy trip planning

As well as helping you to discover brand spanking new destinations, we can also help you plan what to do once you arrive arrive. Our Trip pages are packed with advice and reviews from other travellers.

Just type in the city you want to visit and we’ll show you a list of the best things to do and places to eat. Our Trip pages also have curated lists of things to do, written by experts – so if you need inspiration for 36 hours in Edinburgh or Art and Design in London, this is where you’ll find it.
