Advantages: You may find a cheaper flight here.
Disadvantages: Broader search options would be amazing.
Skyscanner.net is a website which allows you to search for cheap flights, what differs with skyscanner and other, is the broader range of searching, if you have flexible dates for travel, you can search for flights in the range of a whole month, or even the whole year, adding to that, if you have not decided where you want to go, you can search for flights to 'any country' to see where you can get a cheap option to.
Although this is great, and I always go here when looking for flights, after experiencing skyscanner, I want more! I want more options such as regional searching, i.e. 'south east asia to europe' flight search option, which would be ideal for backpackers on a budget looking to get from region to region without searching every single country in the continent! And more airlines included, some are just not there at all.
When you want to book a flight, you don't book with skyscanner, you book either with the airlines website itself, or a travel website such as expedia or ebookers.
There is also a route map feature, but this is basically just the drop-down boxes in a visual sense, it has no different options.
Overall, when booking flights, it's definatley worth checking out skyscanner against your option, you never know, it may be a lot cheaper.
Summary: Give it a go, you can't lose afterall.
