SkyScanner then gives you more options. If there are certain dates that are preferable then put them in. If there is a particular month that holds interest then the app will allow you to choose the month. There is also an overview to see the best fares for the year. A price watch is available if there are specific trip details.

When attempting to choose the best flight, the app will not only inform of the price, but what airline, how many stops, flying time, which is the shortest trip time, and where to purchase this great deal. It can also sort flights using the above if arriving quickly is a goal, have a preference of what time to fly out, etc. There is also away to see a quick comparison on prices for flights and how to get the best bang for your buck.

SkyScanner is a great app to use. It is something that should be used to help look for a great fare for your next flight. It is very simple to use and will help spend your money more at the destination rather than solely on trying to get there. This is why the app of the month is SkyScanner!
