When Alan and I begin searching for flights for the next boomer travel adventure, we conduct a search on Skyscanner to find the most convenient flights with the best prices. It’s a great tool for researching flights. After finding the flight that’s right for us, we go to the airline website to see if their price matches the one we found on Skyscanner. When it comes to airlines and hotels, always book direct, if you can. Be sure to download their app for researching while you’re on the road: Skyscanner iOS App Download or Skyscanner Android App Download
