I love it how it pulls information out of your reservation emails and then creates trips, plus offline download makes it an amazing tour guide when you don't have data roaming

Skyscanner

Compares millions of flights to find you the cheapest deal

Taimoor HussainDigital Marketing Strategist · Written
Tells you the cheapest flight. really helps save money
CommentsShare
Best thing Skyscanner brought to travel was 'Flexible? Search Everywhere' I had wanted this feature forever and nobody did it: search for flights based on price/don't mind where you go. Many of my holidays have been decided this way! And they are Scottish, which is great.

I prefer AirBnb over hotels, as I feel that my host/flatowner takes care of me...not my money

Traveling around Asia and Africa this past year and Hopper has been a godsend, with ticket prices. My last round trip ticket from EWR to Chiang Mai via BKK cost just under $650. Got a similar price from Singapore to South Africa. Typically prices are 200- thousands more.

Google Flights

Andreea NastaseSenior Strategist · Written
I like using Google Flights to explore cheap air travel options if I haven't decided on a particular destination, and to explore the cheapest day to fly to a destination on a particular month with the calendar functionality. I find it excels at those two things, plus all the usual price monitoring features that we've come to expect of ticket sites. I also like that it's a much more user-friendly version of the original ITA Matrix system, aka "the magic cheap flights site no one has ever heard of", which now powers both Kayak and Google Flights search!

Google Flights is amazing, its like ITA Matrix with speed, even if I don't book it directly through them most of the time I am often checking different variations of flights from it because it is blazing fast.

Similar to other flight ticket search engine but with added TRACKING feature that allows you to get a notification for when you particular flight is at the cheapest or priciest and act accordingly!

Expedia has a smooth ticket booking experience however kayak has a cool UX to search. So, I use Kayak to search and book tickets through Expedia..

Love kayak as well. Expedia CS is just great. I was in a tricky situation once and was able to reach tech support by phone immediately. So rare nowadays.

Foursquare

Lim Chee AunProduct Engineer · Written
I use Foursquare to find for top/trendy places to visit and save them into a "to-go" list that I can check out while travelling.
CommentsShare
Still the best choice for finding great spots almost anywhere in the world. Add in their great list features, Trip Tips for asking for recommendations, and the ability to draw a search area on a map, and you’re on to a sure winner.
