Skyscanner Flight Prices



  • Anyone know of any modules to track flight prices? I have a date in mind I want to go on holiday but rather than constantly checking the prices it would be cool to have my MM keep me updated with the latest price.

    I do not know of any modules that do this, but it would not be difficult to create given an api.

    Skyscanner does have such an api, but the lowest tier it seems to be geared towards small companies and not individuals. The next option to attempt would be to do some small scale friendly web scraping, but it seems that they specifically banned that in their robot.txt and tos (h).

    At a glance, another option could be the Travel Payouts API as they appear more friendly to personal use. However, it would require a few more google searches to see if it really is a good fit.
