Last Minute Travel Deals Site Chooses The Destination

Escape Flight filters and books last minute travel plans based on destination offerings, rather than a direct search.

You want to get away for the weekend, but you don’t know where to go.

You know what you want to do while on vacation, but you don’t want to go to the same old spot.

You’re stuck living in a city that can be rather dismal and dreary, please just send you anywhere between now and work on Monday.

If you found yourself nodding along to any of these descriptions, Escape Flight might be for you.

A free, design-centric travel site recently launched in the U.K., Escape Flight aims to provide a new travel experience for last minute travelers by choosing the destination for them.

Escape Flight, created by B-Reel Products, works by finding locations that provide characteristics and attributes selected by users, rather than searching directly for location-specific deals. Thus, users can input what they are looking for – from a list that includes culture, food, hidden gems, nightlife, outdoor, and romance – and then sort results based on price, hassles associated with travel, and the prospective weather of chosen destinations.


The eleven most compatible destinations are then displayed visually, rather than in a standard text-heavy listing, and provide quick facts based on the user’s search parameters (i.e. if you searched based on weather, it might provide current forecast or the weekend outlook). The search only returns the top results, which allows quicker and more efficient filtering to help you ‘escape from’ whichever metropolis you reside in.

Unfortunately for those of us living in the U.S., Escape Flight is currently only operational for flights that depart from a London-area airport. Additionally, all flight results that are returned to users depart on a Friday evening and return the next Sunday night (with only quickly approaching weekends being searchable). But, the company does plan to expand their offerings to more major cities and searchable dates after they’re up and running.
