Who offers the best price?
We've checked both Skyscanner and Webjet for a one-way flight to London on the exact same date to see which site offers the lowest price.
When comparing prices, Skyscanner listed the lowest-priced flights. The cost was $24 cheaper.
With such a small margin of difference, it's worth checking both when searching for the best-priced flight. It is also worth noting that Webjet charges service fees where Skyscanner does not.
Which offers flights across a wider range of airlines?
Both Skyscanner and Webjet show fares from a wide variety of airlines. In a single search for Sydney to London flights Skyscanner came up with more than 300 flight options and Webjet listed 244.
Both Skyscanner and Webjet feature flights across a long list of airlines, worldwide.
What are deals like?
Skyscanner's deals are dependent on deals offered directly with the airline or deals offered via third party website. On the website you can view cheap flights by map and see deals for travel in upcoming months.
Webjet has a specials page where it lists flight deals of the week. It also advertises sales on its home page. Unlike Skyscanner, its deals don’t depend on airline or third-party website offers so you could wind up with a cheaper flight than if you booked direct.
While it's easier to access Webjet's deals it's worth scoping both sites out for who has the better price. Webjet also offers Webjet Exclusives holiday packages whereas Skyscanner does not, giving it a bit of edge for those who don't like to DIY.
