Skyscanner introduces Savvy Search with AI


Leveraging the immense power of AI alongside its extensive flight search capabilities, global travel app Skyscanner introduces its exclusive Savvy Search tool. With access to over 18 million unique flight routes and a daily search volume exceeding 80 billion prices, Skyscanner’s app now empowers travellers to effortlessly articulate their travel desires, prompting the tool to unveil personalised recommendations tailored to their preferences.

Utilising Open AI’s Chat GPT technology, Savvy Search simplifies the trip planning process. Users can articulate their travel aspirations, from common queries like seeking a budget-friendly European city break in October to more specific desires such as planning a 30th birthday celebration with vibrant nightlife and delectable cuisine. Based on these inputs, Savvy Search curates up to three destination recommendations, integrating rich imagery and detailed descriptions to showcase the distinct attributes of each suggestion.

Unlike many other AI-driven travel tools and chatbots, Savvy Search combines visual elements with comprehensive destination narratives to offer a holistic understanding of each recommendation. Once users select a destination, they are seamlessly directed to Skyscanner’s flight search platform to compare prices and book their ideal flight.

Piero Sierra, Chief Product Officer, Skyscanner, emphasises the platform’s evolution in catering to wanderlust-driven travelers. Over the past 17 years, Skyscanner has been assisting adventurers with its Everywhere search feature, catering to the growing trend of travelers exploring without a predetermined destination. With the integration of AI technologies, Skyscanner is poised to further enhance the discovery phase of travelers’ journey, aligning with evolving travel trends highlighted in Skyscanner’s Travel Trends 2024 report.

To commemorate the launch of Savvy Search, Skyscanner shares insights gleaned from the tool’s beta phase, showcasing some of the most intriguing user queries:

Escaping life’s worries: Savvy Search recommends Goa, India, with its serene beaches, vibrant markets, and delectable cuisine, offering an ideal setting for relaxation.

Astrophotography enthusiasts: Norway emerges as the top destination to witness the Northern Lights, providing a breathtaking spectacle for capturing memorable images.
