I wanted to write a review straight away after this website probably saved my holiday (and possibly prevented the loss of my sanity).
I had been looking for flights from Glasgow to Morocco for days and last night spent about 5 hours trawling through various comparison websites as well as looking at airlines such as ryanair and easyjet. I found that all of the comparison websites were quoting ridiculous prices and some even had horrible 20 hour stopovers which would hardly set you up for a nice relaxing break. The individual airlines themselves were much more reasonably priced but I couldn't find a way to make the various times match up when flying to any stopover airport.
At my sister's recommendation I tried skyscanner which immediately gave me a list of cheap flights and showed which times would suit. I was totally relieved and booked straight away - if only I had tried this site sooner!
The site itself is easy to use ad pretty fast. I like the feature that you don't have to be too specific with your choice of airport i.e. you can choose 'all scotland' or 'all spain' if you are flexible about your departure/destination and want to find the best deal.
The next time I am booking flights I will definitely check here first as well as all the other usual comparison websites as it's good to get a broad idea of what prices are out there. It is possible that this site just hapenned to give the best result for my particular search in which case it's always best to check around. However, after this experience I suspect that some flight comparison sites only give results from their partner airlines as the prices I was quoted (about £400) were way above what I found on skyscanner (£150).
Summary: I will always check here before buying flights from now on!
