Advantages: VERY clear and easy to navigate.
Disadvantages: they don't pay for the flights for you :(
i think skyscanner.net is genius! it is an online search engine that searches multiple airlines to find you the best deals.
My parents live abroad so i regularly find myself needing cheap flights with the flexibility of when i can go, this is where skyscanner and it's very clear site come in handy. I only ever fly easyjet because they offer the most frequent routes for me, but i still find myself only using skyscanner as it is a lot clearer than easyjets site (in my opinion)
go to www.skyscanner.net and you are immediatley greeted with a large print form to fill in:
FROM/TO - enables you to type your destination, and after typing the first 2 letters it comes up with a long list of suggestions.
DEPART - as soon as you click the box as if to type, it handily comes up with a calendar for you to view, the best part of this for me, is also the option to click WHOLE MONTH/WHOLE YEAR which is the system that i will be reviewing as it is the type of search that i use the most.
RETURN/ONE-WAY - simple click box.
passengers can be filled in before clicking SEARCH.
you are then directed to the next page...
again the next page sticks with the easy to navigate simple style that i love about this search engine. There is a graph with prices for each individual day, one for outbound one for return. There is a very useful total box underneath the graph so that you can click a choice of journeys to quickly see the price it will be.
When you are ready to press next, the site will show you the options of times, prices and airlines to chose from, when you are happy with your selections the site continues to be easy and self explanatory.
If you get stuck whilst on this site (which i think would be a rare occasion, the faq section is really informative and can be seen at the link below)
If you are a frequent traveler then this is a must for you! I couldn't imagine searching in another way!
Summary: i couldn't imagine searching in another way.
