Do you find yourself dreaming of flying off on holiday somewhere? I know I often do! But sometimes it’s hard to decide where to go. Or perhaps you are working to a budget and want to keep your costs down. You could trawl through the various websites to help you choose, but Cheapflights has got a simpler idea.
Cheapflights is a global flight search and travel deals website, and their new EscEscape app puts short getaways just two taps away.
EscEscape (pronounced ‘Escape Escape’) is a browser extension which has recently been launched in the UK, US, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. It’s free to install and is currently available for Google Chrome users. And Mac fans need not feel left out, as a Safari version is coming soon.
When you have installed the extension onto your browser, you simply tap your keyboard’s ‘Esc’ key twice. The app then runs a live flight search to find the cheapest, quickest and smartest return flights from your nearest airport. EscEscape will pull up the cheapest options for a weekend break in the next 8 weeks, and displays them in a new tab.
If you like what you see, you can just go ahead and book your chosen deal. Don’t like the options available? Just hit ‘EscEscape’ again and a new destination will be displayed.
Installing ‘EscEscape’ from Cheapflights is really easy – simply visit www.cheapflights.co.uk/escape:
Click on the ‘Add Extension to Chrome’ and you will be taken to the Google Play Store. Click on the blue ‘Add to Chrome’ button in the top right corner, and it will be installed on your browser. You’ll see a little yellow Esc key at the top of your browser.
From there, it’s just a case of double tapping the Esc key on your keyboard. The app will automatically select your nearest airport, but you can change that in the setting if you wish. Then just pick the cheapest, quickest or smartest flights from the options shown.
You can quickly and easily find the best deals available at your local airport, and the app will even show you if there are cheaper options from another airport close by. No more scrolling through endless pages of flight destinations needed!
