Search flights to Everywhere

Perhaps you’re planning a grand adventure around Europe. Or maybe you need to visit multiple cities for business. You might even want to book a round-the-world holiday of a lifetime. Rather than spend tedious hours searching for individual connecting flights, you can simply search and book all the cheapest and most convenient flights at once using Skyscanner’s multi-city flights search tool.

How to use Skycanner’s multi-city search

Step 1: Select ‘multi-city’

On the Skyscanner homepage, select ‘multi-city’ at the top of the search panel. Welcome to Advanced Skyscanner.

Step 2: add in your travel dates and destinations

By clicking on the ‘Add another flight’ button, you can enter up to six legs of your journey. Select your departure airport, destination and dates from the drop-down menus.

Step 3: Who’s going?

Choose the number of passengers and cabin class you wish to search for from the menu in the bottom left.

Step 4: Customise your flight

After you hit the green ‘Search’ button, you’ll be taken to a page that displays all of the results for the flights you’ve chosen. Use the filters along the left-hand side to choose your preferred departure times, airline, airports, total journey duration and number of stops.

Step 5: Check the small print

To find out more about any part of your journey, click the ‘Details’ link on the bottom left of each search result box. This opens a pop-up window in which you can see the details for each flight. Click the arrows to expand each box.

Step 6: Book it!

Hit the green ‘Select’ button on the right hand side of the search result box. You’ll be redirected to the airline or online travel agent’s website, where you can complete your booking.
