Everyone knows Skyscanner, Momondo and Kayak. They are mainstream platforms to find cheap flights but, in my opinion, they have some limitations that every budget traveler needs. I will share with you a new platform made just for us, budget travelers! Remember to check my last post regarding cheap flights.
Great Escape is a new tool created by MIT Senseable City Laboratory. Quoting them, they created this website since there was too “many destinations in South East Asia we thought of a map-based approach that can help in exploring the destinations in a fun and intuitive way.” They give live prices from the cheapest flights to every city in the world (or based on a continent, country or other activated filters) from a chosen location (region, country or your city, for example). This tools “allows you to filter by visa, weather, price, region, direct/indirect to help you narrow down the options.”
The presented their tool on Reddit (twice) and received a lot of feedback to ensure the tool was tourist friendly. By looking at the interface and possibilities, it’s a shock to me that this is not more mainstream. For me, it’s even better and Google flights!
The invite everyone to upvote their project in Product hunt and give suggestions! What do you think about this tool? Give us your thoughts below!
