We love this new, London-based travel site Escape Flight, which uses algorithms to curate inspiring weekend city breaks in Europe.

A completely free service, Escape Flight has been designed with the typical busy city dweller in mind, such as those with limited time on their hands to trawl through the abundance of online travel websites, or those who are simply undecided as to their next travel destination.

β€œIt’s about providing a smarter search that understands you and only shows you what you want to see, answers… not hundreds, but a handful of carefully curated results,” explains the Escape Flight website.

Users simply select a number of options from a drop down menu at the top of the page, including costs, airport preference, the date they would like to travel, the weather and activities they might be interested in on their trip, before the site produces a curated handful of inspiring, last-minute destination ideas.

The site filters direct-only flights, leaving London on Friday and returning back on Sunday, to destinations that are no longer than 3 hours traveling distance away.

In our recent In The Air report, New Optimism we explore more travel apps and services encouraging us to step out of our comfort zones and journey to surprising new destinations. – Samantha Fox
