How To Book Multi City Flights on Skyscanner in 2019

Dreaming of a few days in Sydney on your way to Singapore? Or how about exploring Paris before heading to Prague? Discover how our multi-city search feature can help you hop around the world and make the most of your vacation time.

Start by selecting “multi-city” in the search box below, entering your desired origin & destinations 👇


What is a multi-city flight?

Traveling to more than one destination on your trip? Book a multi-city flight, or multi-destination flight as an easy way of getting more from any trip. If you’re planning an epic trip with several stops — perhaps around Europe, or maybe Southeast Asia — a multi-city flight is less time-consuming than booking lots of one-way tickets between cities, and can be cheaper, too.

What are the benefits of booking a multiple city flight?

It’s much more convenient (and less confusing) to book all your flights at the same time. Our multi-city search makes it easy to compare flights so you can get the best deal without having to go to multiple sites. You can even book with different airlines.

Go on, take a look around — you might just end up booking that dream trip. (Yes, we know, we’re a bad influence…)

Multi City Trip to Europe

Looking for some multi-city inspiration? Below, you’ll find an example of a good multi-city trip around Europe to get you started. Hopefully this shows how a multi-city flight lets you explore lots of different settings and cultures, all in one easy itinerary.  

Stop 1: London The easiest place to start a journey around Europe from North America is London. Why? It’s got not one, but two great international airports, both with lots of links to destinations in the US and across Europe. Plus, it’s a world-class vacation destination in its own right.

Stop 2: Edinburgh After that long flight across the pond, it might be better to make the next leg a short hop up to Scotland. Besides, Edinburgh is one of Europe’s greatest cities, with lots of history, culture, and warm, friendly people.

Stop 3: Berlin Another great hub for traveling onto other European destinations, and very cheap to reach from Edinburgh. Plus, it’s got a pretty unbeatable blend of fascinating history and modern artsy-cool.

Stop 4: Paris It won’t even take you two hours to fly to Paris from Berlin, leaving you with plenty of energy to explore the City of Love.

Stop 5: Lisbon The Portuguese capital has become a real hotspot in recent years — tourism here is booming as more and more travelers discover its charming cobbled alleys, excellent restaurants, and gorgeous hilltop views over the Tagus River. So why not end your trip somewhere a little more off the well-beaten European tour trail? Then it’s back home. Boo.
