Thumbs up from me
Have used Skyscanner a dozen or so times over the past couple of years and I have almost always found the cheapest flights around through them. I first like to search google flights to find the cheapest dates then jump onto Skyscanner to see if they come up with a better price.
Constantly use Skyscanner for flight and hotel deals
Used it to book our 2019 flights
Managed to get great deals and surprisingly some were the deal without extras
Offers a great variety of travel deals
Prices Inaccurate and not available
Been on this sight for over a month and the cheap flights just don't exist. They either change and are marked up by $200 or are not available. I have tried 4-5 different offers and the same thing every time no matter what time of day or night. Adelaide to Phuket in late Sept/Early Oct this year.
Very upset that Skyscanner can still promote MyTrip (one of their flight suppliers) on their website. I paid for tickets, credit card charged, but never received tix from MyTrip. If you google MyTrip, nothing but BAD reviews. Skyscanner needs to step up and remove these suppliers immediately. A refund would be appreciated too.
Skyscanner and Bravofly the joint scam!
Beware what is on offer here! I booked flights through Skyscanner with Bravofly on Cathay Pacific flying Osaka-Hong Kong. Cathay cancelled our flight and Bravofly has taken over 3 months to confirm the alternative flight we accepted. Despite many emails they keep confirming a flight we never never accepted until Skyscanner intervened a week ago. Lastminute née Bravofly tonight confirmed this accepted flight. But, this was after again attempting to confirm the wrong flight and delaying several more days. So after 3 months and their repeated failures I won’t be recommending them. I am happy this is resolved. I thank Skyscanner for becoming involved but feel they could chose their 3rd party sellers more wisely !
This is best
Easy to search, alarm settings, no cookie! Price is sometimes different (a little bit more expensive) but depends on the offering company. Tells us how to get cheaper ticket and information.
Cheap prices on skyscanner do NOT exist on the real sites
Used skyscanner years ago and it was quite good. But it's now just a cheater.
Have been searching air tickets from SYD to HND for the past a couple of months and decided to buy since this week. But when I clicked the cheap prices on skyscanner, whether it's edreams, gotogate or expedia, it turned out to be a much dearer price on the real sites. If it's just one or two sites doing this, I'd assume it's just the sites, but they're all like that, the cheap prices simply did not exist! There must be something wrong with skyscanner. What's the point when you show $1018 but it's actually $1451?
Easy to navigate their website.
It was an easy, time saving and cheapest deal! We needed 6 tickets and Skyscanner was the most user friendly of all the sites I have been through. Very happy!
I just did a fare comparison between opening the airline directly vs opening it through flight scanner, oh boy did I find that the prices get marked up on flight scanner.
Excellent site, very easy to compare and navigate. Having tried other sites,I would definitely use this one again. I found prices accurate and was able to find a good deal.
Skyscanner can't stop cheaters! Reliability is a big question now!
Nowadays I found that Skyscanner's partners can cheat with prices on the page. They can show low prices, getting people to their pages where they confirm your order, but not allow you to go to payment, online process is cut at this point with order confirmation. They send you email with order confirmation instead. Next they get in touch with you directly and say sorry, give you some explanation about technical problems and cancel the cheap price order (which never was real) than they try sell you flights with much higher prices. They use at least 2-3 links on Skyscanner page, so it looks very real, all with very low price at same level, betten than all others with real prices. This way they can eliminate real competition on price, get in touch with buyer and if luck, they can sell with high margin.
How do I know their price is not real? When I did my claim, they corrected price to almost 3 x times higher original price. They refuse to serve me, but next day they offer again similar low price on the Skyscanner page - suddenly the same price was available again, no matter they already reported me that is not working.
The reliability of prices on Skyscanner with this cheats are gone.
So sad, Skyscanner was a good idea....
Finally I bought my ticket at higher price from other partner.
One of the best websites to check and buy your ticket
The first I went to Flight centre to buy my ticket and they told me the price is $1795 but I didn’t buy it I back home and again I checked the price with skyscanner and I found nice price which was $1575
Unexpected add-ons. Terrible
Unexpected add ons. Baggage and seats cost me an extra $65 making the price actually paid way more than booking directly with qantas. And now I have to provide my email for junk mail in order to submit this review.
It is a great website. They just need to filter the companies which scam people. Apart from it most of the companies on skyscanner are good.
Also, I would love to see last minute feature
Always my First Choice
Yes very often on going to landing pages to booking flight.
pretty easy to scan and spot one one page.
Need minute to minute updating on daily basis on your website.
Skyscanner why use anything else when it comes to booking flights etc. Excellent app.
The most simplified app to search for a flight and at the best price. So easy to see what airlines are offered with there tail logo. Pricing very accurate no hidden costs.
Travelling made easy
After learning about this site ,i never stopped booking ahead on my next trip. Skyscanner does the job for looking for lowest airfare , and it's so easy, convinient and i get fast results .
They don’t care about customer experience
Skyscanner website lead me to mytrip.com. They do not take responsibility of anything, they do not care about the customer at all , my mom end up sleeping at the airport she couldn’t contact me or anyone she had to buy an other ticket because the connection fight hour Change and she didn’t arrive on time , trip.com didn’t care, and it seams that skyscanner either as they keep allowing this kind of agents offer their services trough them
Scyscanner a total Rip off
I have just booked tickets for my wife and infant for a return ticket which was very expensive compared to all other travel agents(my bad I just trusted this website in the first place) .I have asked for a name change which wasn't done and when i tried to cancel the flight booking their prices were sky high which is 50% of the total ticket price.I have just been informed that's how these websites work and they can't do anything about it.Worse experience and worse customer service ever.Total Rip off .Don't waste your money and have a mental stress booking through skyscanner.#stayaway#skyscanner
I was looking for flights from Perth to Bali for April 2019 and skyscanner is trying to offer something which does not exist. It keeped coming up with Malindo Air co share with Batik Air the only big problem with this is Batik Air stopped flying into Perth from the First of January 2019 so how the hell you are offering flights at a price of 500 dollars return direct wait Malindo Air only go's by Malaysia with a stop over in Malaysia so how the hell is that direct. Warning to all think before you use this site.
