Jules Verne's challenge to travel Around the World in 80 Days is no longer difficult. So, we decided to up the stakes. Intsead of 80 days, what about 80 hours? We ran a Flightfox contest to find the answer and wrote our own tale with none other than Philleas (Phil) Foxx.
The end of 2013 marks Flightfox's first full calendar year in operation - woo hoo! To celebrate we looked back at our top routes, most popular destinations and craziest contests.
It takes at least 18 hours in the air to get to Bangkok from Montreal. 18 hours of crammed seats, sealed processed foods and the inevitable crying baby. But this time, because of some inexplicable luck, I was rescued from coach and allowed into the exclusive and elite world of the upper class.
With a multitude of online portals guaranteeing the cheapest price, we couldn't help but wonder how the independent travel agency is able to compete. In a quest for answers, we hit the streets to book some flights of our own.
We asked our experts to fly to 10 different regions of Europe in order to create the Ultimate Cultural Eurotrip. The cost? So low, even we couldn't believe it! Here's why you should never take the train again.
Do you want to snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef or visit Mount Everest? We've got a trip for you! If you want to cross all 7 Natural Wonders off your bucket list in one go, our flight experts have come up with great (and cheap!) ways to do it.
When offered the opportunity to meet up with everyone in the team face-to-face for the first time since I joined Flightfox earlier this year, I was able to experience the pleasures of the journey itself, firsthand. In first class.
Most great ideas sprout from inauspicious times. Flightfox was no different. There we were, with no-fixed-address, and of all things, trying to break into a Bolivian prison. If ever we needed a better idea, now was the time.
We set an exciting challenge for our experts, to put together the most creative, unique and fun vacation package, but with a twist... Instead of just using Flightfox, we asked them to use two other people-powered travel resources: Airbnb and Vayable.
