Skyscanner

Started by three founders in 2003, Skyscanner is a leading global travel search site, providing instant online comparisons for millions of flights on over a thousand airlines, as well as car hire and hotels.

Skyscanner’s flexible search options mean you can browse prices across a whole month, or even a year, allowing you to get the best deals. You always book direct with the airline or travel agent, so you get the lowest price, with no extra fees added.

The site now receives 25 million visitors per month, while the app has been downloaded over 25 million times. The company has offices in Edinburgh, Miami, Singapore and Beijing employing over 300 staff.
