Skyscanner was given a big thumbs up on Jo Whiley’s BBC Radio 1 show yesterday (2 June 09), by travel expert Tom Hall of the Lonely Planet.
It was Skyscanner’s unique, flexible, search system that lets users enter their dates and search for the cheapest flights to any destination that won praise from the Lonely Planet writer. Skyscanner also allows users to enter just the destination and find the cheapest days to fly.
The recommendation follows a slew of recent press coverage for Skyscanner across the media including: The Times, The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Sunday Times, Men’s Health, The Sun, News of the World, The Scotsman, The Daily Mail, ABTA Magazine, Sainsbury’s Magazine, MoneySavingExpert.com, Cosmopolitan, Best, Prima and dozens of other titles.
Barry Smith, Skyscanner director and co-founder commented:
"Here at Skyscanner HQ, we’re big fans of Jo Whiley, so it was great to hear Skyscanner being recommended on her show by the highly respected travel expert, Tom Hall of Lonely Planet. This is one of the reasons we’re growing so quickly – people try us, like us and then recommend us to their friends."
