Flight Return Fare World Map

Having toured several Asian countries such as Singapore , Malaysia, Thailand and of course India, I was on the lookout for budget friendly destinations across the world. At a single shot, I wanted to know what’s the “cheapest” return fare for a given set of dates and the average price of a 3/4 star hotel. This would easily give me a rough estimate of my overall travel budget (after I add my visa, food and local travel expense).

But across the web , all I could find was top 10 or top 5 destinations type of posts, based on that corresponding traveler’s preference and the cost was too vague to calculate. So when I was searching for an unbiased map, our dearest Google gave me a new feature , something I recently discovered myself.  So when you want to know the return flight fare and 3/4/5 hotel average rates, all you need to do is the following :

Search for “Source City name” to ” Destination City Name” .
Eg : you can search for “Chennai to Bali”

As you can see from the left top, the dates are easy to select while you get to see a rough estimate of the cheapest flight fares and hotel tariffs/night. The best part about this map is not the prices for the specified destination alone but all surrounding cities in all countries . In this example , though Bali was searched, we could see the prices for Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia

Things you can do with this Map

    Exploring Destinations 

    Having a small budget and having preferred a new international “off-beat destination”, this map was basically something I was looking for the past 2 months. No other site could even come remotely close to the summarized view this offered

    Filtering based on Interests : Not only that, I could actually filter destinations based on my interests such as a beach / culture / Shopping based destination. This was actually cool on so many levels

    So if you are on the lookout for a fancy yet cheaper European Destination, this for sure would help you 🙂
