Escape Flight – Plan Your Weekend Escape

Getting through the workweek is a whole lot easier when you’ve got great plans for the weekend. Escape Flight is a tool that you can use to make those plans. Dubbed the “smarter search service,” Escape Flight understands what people want from weekend trips — good deals on last-minute getaways that aren’t too difficult to reach — and then gets to work to make those trips happen.

Tell Escape Flight where you’re escaping from, what dates you’re going, what you’d like to do while you’re there, and which vacation features are important for your happiness (a low price, good weather, or minimal hassle). Escape Flight will do the research on your behalf, pulling up 11 weekend getaway ideas with your specifications in mind. Escape Flight’s trip suggestions include detailed information about virtually every aspect of your getaway, including potential flight times, restaurant recommendations, and sightseeing tips. This information is presented in a visually stunning way, making every brief getaway Escape Flight presents look like the trip of a lifetime.

When you’ve settled on a trip idea, click the “Check Flights” button. Escape Flight will redirect you to an outside site for booking the flights for your trip. Escape Flight is currently only available to people searching for flight out of London-area airports, however the application’s creators plan to expand the list of supported departure cities at some point in the future.
