Skyscanner was born from a typical travel problem Our founder, Gareth, wanted to travel regularly to ski with his brother but he was frustrated with trawling the internet for the right flight at the best price, so he got together with two friends and solved the problem with a simple spreadsheet Because Gareth’s problem is every traveller’s problem Skyscanner caught on Gareth’s simple spreadsheet has grown into the most advanced travel search engine in the world bypassing the old technology the rest of the industry relies on Now Skyscanner is one of the world’s leading travel search sites where travellers are inspired to plan and book direct from millions of travel options at the best prices We’re different from everyone else Our secret is in our self-built technology that connects travellers to everything the travel industry has to offer We search hundreds of travel sites directly to give you the most comprehensive set of flights, hotel and car hire options out there Unlike others, we’re not reliant on third parties for our prices – we go direct That means lower prices for consumers and fairer returns for our partners So whether it’s flights, hotels or car hire we’re completely free and our highly rated app is super easy to use We’re growing fast With 80 million monthly visitors, 70 million app downloads, more than 1,200 global partners and available in over 30 languages Skyscanner has over 1,000 staff made up of over 50 nationalities and 11 offices across the world We’re powering much of the travel internet too Our unique technology is so impressive we power travel search for hundreds of well-known brands Skyscanner – the world’s travel search engine.
