SkyScanner is here for the Travel Mart 2013


SkyScanner is here in Manila. They will join the Travel Mart 2013 which is happening two days from now – September 6 to 8, 2013 at the SMX Convention Center at the Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

But before the event, the Market Dev’t Manager was here to meet few of the PH travel bloggers today. We had lunch over at Lugang Cafe at the Mall of Asia together with the PR team handling SkyScanner.

Janet Ranola, Market Dev’t Manager who is based in Singapore met with  OutofTownblog.com, JuanManilaExpress.com, RecycleBinofaMiddlechild.com, Byahilo.com, and Philippine Travel Blog.

Janet shares that they are happy with how the Filipino travellers have matured and reported that the PH users of SkyScanner – both the apps and the website has grown 300% for the last 12 months.

That means a lot of Filipinos are now travelling, be it a vacation to the province, a quick getaway to our neighbouring Asian countries, visiting relatives or going back to home towns. And the best way to find affordable flights is via SkyScanner.

The best thing is always free.
SkyScanner does not charge you any cent for usage of its website, the apps which are downloadable for free from Google Play, Apps Store and Blackberry Store provides the same service.

What is cute about SkyScanner is that you can search for the cheapest fares by defining the origin of the flight and just let SkyScanner list down flights to anywhere with the lowest price. Cool isn’t it?
