What is EscapeMap?
EscapeMap is an interactive tool created by Opodo to help our customers find cheap flight deals worldwide in seconds. Instead of having to run dozens of searches yourself, trying out different destinations and dates, you can use EscapeMap to see Opodo's best prices to hundreds of cities - at a glance, on the map.

It's quick, it's handy and if you love finding cheap flights, and getting new travel ideas, you may find it's a little addictive.

How do I use EscapeMap?
  1. EscapeMap has a map tool for flight prices.
  2. The next step is to use the first dropdown list to choose which UK city you'd like to fly from, and what continent you'd like to travel to. This will bring up a map of the continent you've chosen, plus further preferences, such as price bands, geographic regions, travel date bands and special travel interests you may be on the lookout for, such as culture or adventure sports.
  3. Check at least one of the preferences and EscapeMap will display the cheapest offers matching your criteria. You can select more than one special interest at a time. You can also select a new UK airport or continent at any time to start fresh.
  4. Click on a price to see a summary pop-up of the offer, including the dates and airline.
  5. Click the link in the pop-up to go to a page showing you a range of deals with different dates to that destination. You can either select the exact offer you saw on EscapeMap, or search for different dates, using the search tool on the page.
How up to date are the prices on EscapeMap?
EscapeMap automatically collects the best prices for destinations from www.opodo.co.uk every morning, so they are usually not more than 24 hours old. If the price shown on EscapeMap for a destination goes up when you click through to the results for those dates, it means that the lowest-priced deal has sold out since the last EscapeMap update (and if the price goes down, it means a cheaper deal has since been introduced).

What if I want different travel dates and durations to the trips shown on EscapeMap?
The EscapeMap prices are intended as examples only, as every traveller will have his/her own preference on travel dates and trip duration. If you don't want to travel on the pre-set dates, use the displayed prices as a guide to the cheapest time to go, and run your own search.

Why can't I find more obscure travel destinations on the map?
If EscapeMap displayed prices for every single destination you could possibly go to in the world, the map would be chaos, with all the prices crowded out. So EscapeMap displays prices for Opodo's top 265 destinations only - a tempting selection for even the most gung-ho globetrotter.
