I need to rest.”

    Sites better than Skyscanner?

    Skyscanner will find you the best routing but not necessarily the best price. If after choosing the flight you want and they then direct you to other sites to make a booking rather than direct with the airline(s) concerned, then that's the time to book direct with the airline(s) and not thru Skyscanner. The above applies to most other sites.
