Welcome to the first Cheapflights Compass Report. Our team has crunched 2.1 million hours of data from the UK users of our website and app – that’s the equivalent of 247 years, if you were wondering – to deliver a raft of findings that will help travellers to plan their next getaway.

We’ve analysed billions of lines of search data generated between August 2015 and July 2016, to provide insights into the travel habits of the British. We’ve also identified key travel trends for 2017, and provided tips on how to get the best bang for your buck when it comes to booking flights.

Let the Cheapflights Compass steer your decision about where to go, when to book and travel, and how to get there. You’ll also learn how to ‘swap and save’ on destinations offering similar experiences, and wise-up on the airfare ‘postcode pinch’ and the impact where you live has on the price of your ticket.
