Great app, but needs work with some accessibility features for Voiceover users
Great and useful app. It has a lot of different airlines available to you, including Jet Blue, Spirit, Frontier, United, Delta, American, etc. that I've seen so far. I'm not sure if they have Alaska as I haven't looked at enough flights to fully be aware. The things Ive noticed, though, in terms of accessibility are with the calendar, and also with looking at further flight details. The date of departture and arrival get lost a bit, and it's not entirely intuitive when you're trying to sort out what's what. When you're entering in departure and returning dates, the months are labeled, but the actual days are blank buttons. It's doable since you can just count in your head, but it's a little irritating. That said, plenty of other airline apps are way worse with their calendar accessibility. So, that said, this isn't horrible. When you're booking a one way flight, though, Voiceover responds beautifully to the calendar and suddenly reads the numbers and days of the week on the calendar. Bizarre, but I'm not complaining. Just wish it could also be sorted for the round trip calendars.
Great app for finding cheap flights - wish notifications were better
I use this app to find the best prices for flights and it’s great. I love that I can subscribe to flights and be alerted when the price changes. However I get too many silly notifications because any change triggers the notice. For example - I get notified when the price changes by $1 which is a waste of my attention. In addition if I subscribe to more than one flight the notification becomes generic and I have to open the app to see which flight changed. I wish I could control the limits of my notifications (like only tell me when the price drops by more than $30, etc) and that notifications were more clear - especially when subscribing to more than one flight. Keep up the great work! This app is powerful.
Explore Feature is never accurate
Using Explore was the highlight of using this app for me. However, now that I’m searching for flights to Spain this summer, if I “Explore” this location, it shows me a series of longer duration flights around 450, but when I tap on it, it’s nearly double in the 800s, an entirely different price. It does this for nearly any location and date. Overall I’m very disappointed with the inaccuracy of prices; it’s deemed to be nearly useless unless I’d rather search it date by date instead. With this in mind, I hope the developers will consider shining a light on this issue and improve the searching feature.
Lost the best part
I’m also disappointed with the changes to the “explore” portion of the app. That is the main reason I used this app over any other airfare app. Being able to pick a destination and have the app tell me all the cheapest dates to travel to that destination, was extremely helpful for a flexible traveler like myself. Now the app fills in one set of random dates for that destination, and I can no longer explore and compare different dates without having to type in each date, look at price, change date, look at price, change date, look at price, etc... PLEASE update the app to have the explore option how it used to be. It really set this app above the rest being able to explore different locations or dates based on what is cheapest at the time. It was so helpful when I don’t have a specific destination or specific time frame I want to travel, I just know I want to go somewhere and have it be as cheap as possible. I’m not sure I have use for the app without that feature.
The bait and switch, switch...
Up until this year (wait, Kayak beat out Skyscanner in September when I booked a trip to New Zealand), Skyscanner was my go-to for finding discount flights. A few years ago, I stopped using Momondo because it would advertise flights for one price, THEN raise the price AFTER you input your credit card information. Skyscanner isn’t that bad, but for the last month, every time I’ve checked a price for the EXACT same flight for the EXACT same date, it advertises the same “bait” price, then after clicking on the adjacent link, the price doubles, then triples. Not sure why you’d advertise a one-way flight for $254 FOR A MONTH, but then increase it to $720. Shouldn’t you stop the BS bait price on the unpteenth search? Should I blame the cookies? And you must realize that customers can actually search a plane’s seat availability, so the claims that the seats are limited is tired, not just dishonest. So, way to go, Skyscanner. You’re just as useless as Momondo now.
Go to App to search flights
Skyscanner is TRULY my go to App for looking up & booking flights. You can search for a flight and if you are undecided just “save” it and come back later. See whether the price dropped or increased on that route. You can also “set a price alert”, so I have already set my alerts for 9 months in advance and monitor when cheap flights come up for upcoming holiday trips. It's easy to use, easy to navigate. Its' simple design and clean graphics make the information clear and straightforward. It scans multiple airlines and seems to offer better pricing for flights and connections than some of its rivals.
Shady travel agencies it recommends!!!
Nothing wrong with the app itself. The problem lies with the shady travel agencies it suggests - a lot of them operating from either Eastern Europe or India. And that’s for regardless where the flights are to and from. I am never going to use this site or app again after having had several issues with the travel agencies it recommended while purchasing ticket. When the call is routed to Eastern Europe you know that any changes to the ticket whether airlines charges or not they want hefty change fees. And if the it’s an Indian agency they want to “verify” your credit card even after the ticket issuance by having to divulge credit card and passport info again (usually by sending actual pictures of the stuff) - archaic and obnoxious!!! Screw this - buy from the airline site directly - prices are lower or at worst the same - who need this app!!!
App is super trash. Prices are SUPER inconsistent. I once saw a $4 ticket to Cancun. FELT LIKE CLICKBAIT. When you do find low fares, the availability or connection wait times are god-awful. I once saw a connection wait time of 30 hrs for a 2 hour flight. Are you transporting me on someone's back(with paper wings attached to their hands)? So let me tell you about the price chart: don't use it. It's there for asthetic pleasures. Bet the developers are padding each other for that one. App is so bad not even Jesus would use it. Use Hopper instead(this review has been paid for by the false hopes of many poor suckers) Use app at your own risk 🤬🤬🤬
Used to be great
This used to be my only travel app and I travel constantly. However, I tried to book a flight yesterday and was directed to a third party website for purchase. I then got an email from skyscanner saying that company needed more information. The company also sent me an email saying I had to call them to verify my credit card. I was skeptical but did so and answered some questions. I then got a message that my credit card couldn’t be verified and the transaction was declined. So I rebooked using a different credit card and also got a message that the card had to be verified. I have an excellent credit card and the bank says there is no reason for them to be doing this and there are no problems with the card. I will be looking for a different app now.
Low rating carrier and unknown sites
I am disappointed with Skyscanner because I actually never got a flight through the app. Also, the carrier in the search results are frontier and spirit. These carriers do not add seating or baggage prices to their total price. Their goal is to provide options for their guests. This would not apply to me. Also they both are known to have late arrivals and departures time with poor customer service. In addition, there are booking site most people are not familiar and thorough research has to be done before booking. Skyscanner is not an app for last minute trips. Trips need to be planned in weeks or months in advance. Lastly, I do not like the calendar or chart feature. It display a cheaper flight price than what the results display. Hope the review helps.
Wow! Wow! Wow! Check SkyScanner first every time!
I was hating to book Southwest Air with a 3 day notice from LAS to SMF(Sacramento) when the twin grands are born cuz it’s around $300 each way. Ugh... Driving is 9 hrs and $200+ for just gas! Ugh... I saw Sky Scanner in my apps so I took a minute to peek. I’m so glad I did! It showed me Frontier flew that route nonstop daily for $30-$40 each way. Today I booked Round Trip tix for an 8 PM to 9:30 PM flight in 3 days for only $71 including all tax and fees! Checked bag- not needed by me - is $30 each way extra. Wow! Wow! Wow! I saved $530 because I looked! I can’t wait to meet the new grandkids! I’LL CHECK SKY SCANNER FIRST EVERY TIME I TRAVEL FROM NOW ON!
Worst App Ever
My wife booked a flexible airfare through Skyscanner, and paying more, just in case we needed to change dates. As it turns out we do need to and Skyscanner denies any responsibility saying they are only a search engine, our tickets are actually with Tripsta, and we need to deal directly with them. I’ve called both Athens, Greece and Auckland, New Zealand, and messaged them several times, all with no success. Now I’ve been told they are in reorganization and we are authorized to deal directly with Japan Airlines, who say it’s not their problem and won’t even discuss with us any changes. As I have to stay several more months in Thailand I will be forced to forfeit my return flight, and the money involved, all due to “Skyscammer”! This is outrageous, a total ripoff, and I would suggest that no one ever book through this company again.
Love this app
Only 2 reasons why I can’t give it 5 stars: I wish it had finer grained control over notifications (I want to see if a flight I’m interested changes, I can’t stand random notifications asking if I’m “still interested 👀”), and also, I can’t seem to find a way to set a watch from the app. If I set up a watch on desktop, I get notifications for price changes, but if I save a flight on the mobile app, no notifications, and appears under “saved” instead of “watching.” Maybe I’m missing something somewhere, but if so, wish it was easier to find.
I’ve been using Skyscanner for many years! I love it because I can search most airlines at once and find the best combination of travel dates to save money by day, week, month, and year. We used Skyscanner recently for our trip to Australia and New Zealand because I found a super cheap time to fly for our family and changed our previous destinations. The search functionality by month and year is particularly useful when you are not stuck in flying a certain time of year or day and just looking for cheapest travel times. We LOVE Skyscanner!
How I have travelled the world!
Updated review from 2017: I'm sure I sound like I'm being a tad dramatic, but this app is literally life-changing! With its help I have successfully visited over 17 countries across Europe and Asia. My most recent trip was to Thailand for a little over $500 round trip. Thank you, Skyscanner for making continued world exploration possible ❤️ Original review from 2014: I am 23 and with the help of sky scanner have been blessed to be able to travel! Milan Italy round trip for $800? You're joking! Iceland for $99 bucks?! This app has literally changed my life.
