Planning Your Next Holiday?
We Speak To The Folks From Skyscanner’s Growth Team, Who Shared Their Secrets To Book The Cheapest Flights And Plan The Perfect Holiday.
Planning Your Trip
Do Your Research
Zhiquan, Software Engineer: “Make sure your travel dates don’t clash with major local events, holidays or monsoon seasons at your destination. The last thing you want is to have trouble commuting if the public transport services are stopped or major tourist attractions are closed.”

Travel In A Group
Jim, Growth Manager: “Plan the trip with a friend/family member. It’s always cheaper to travel in at least a pair (e.g. splitting the cost of a hotel room).”
Use Collaborative Planning Tools And Maps
Eileen, Growth Executive: “Google My Maps lets you create a custom map and add pins for multiple locations. This allows you to easily collaborate with your travel buddies and it’s available offline on any device. It’s great for initial brainstorming, creating a trip itinerary or navigating on the go.
You can also mark out key info (e.g. directions to the bus terminal), measure walking distance between attractions, and even add details like opening hours. Way more appealing than an excel spreadsheet!”
