Travel sites are a good indication of just how sophisticated the web is becoming. Hipmunk.com and other slick flight finding services are now a pleasure to use, whereas before it was a chore to book travel. Now there’s a new service which offers even more ease of use.
Skypicker.com is a cool new service which delivers almost instant cheap flight offers literally at the click of a mouse. Instead of relying on a conventional text box interface, with this site all you do is click on the departure and destination cities with your right and left mouse button, and presto, up comes a list of budget flights in seconds (or fraction of a second).
There’s no sluggish page refreshes either, all the speed comes from some very clever browser tech which means the data is paged into boxes. The result is a lightning fast service which means you can find a book a flight faster than you can say ‘Marco Polo‘.
We also like the fact that once you’ve found the flight, you can book it instantly while still staying within the Skypicker interface, which includes useful things like adding in your ID/passport details so you don’t have to do that again on the airline site. It’s a small thing, but it makes the whole process so much more seamless, and again fast.
To see stopovers on the cheaper routes, just swipe your mouse down the list of results and they’ll appear on the map instantly to let you know where you’ll be going. Very nice indeed!
