We're the travel company who puts you first. When we started in 2003, we set out to do things differently. We wanted to show all flight options in one place, creating a simple alternative to the confusing sites that make travel feel like hard work. Fast forward to today and we’ve gone from a flight search engine to a global leader in travel. We're proud that more than 100 million people across the world (that's quite a few!) rely on our app and website each month to help them with their travel plans. Dedicated to making travel as simple as possible, we help each and every one of them find the best options across flights, hotels and car hire to book the perfect trip. But we’re not stopping there: it's our mission to lead the global transformation to modern and sustainable travel.
- Travel joy. - It's what we're all about. We all live in a perpetual state of wanderlust, with difference and distance coming together to create a tonic for the soul. At Skyscanner, we put travellers at the heart of everything we do and we’re obsessed with turning their travel dreams into reality. And we’re only 1% done! Highly curious. Highly motivated. Highly skilled. We bring great minds together to make the hard stuff easy for travellers. Are you one them? - Grow with us We each need to be nothing short of our very best.

That’s a conversation we’re excited to have with you. - From 0 to 60 million users. Where next? Skyscanner launched in 2003, when Gareth’s personal skiing obsession collided with a deep frustration (trying to find the best flights to the French alps). He drafted his idea for the company on the back of a beermat while in the pub with two friends – that’s how all great things start, right? Fast-forward 15 years and more than 60 million people use Skyscanner each month to plan and book their travel. So how did we go from beermat to billion-pound travel brand?
