One of the negatives about the JohnnyJet.com flight search tool is that it doesn’t allow users to search multiple segments. It’s great for one-ways and roundtrips, which is enough for most people but not everyone. Usually when I’m searching multiple legs I use ITA Software or Google Flights. But a new flight search engine just popped up based on the founder’s favorite flight booking technique: free layovers. It’s brilliant because so many travelers have no idea that they can often get a free layover on their trips. QuestOrganizer hopes to rectify that. For example, if you’re flying from the US to Australia, you could stop in Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, or New Zealand—just to name a few. Some airlines like Icelandair encourage travelers by giving them free nights in Reykjavik hotels.
I just gave QuestOrganizer a whirl and found it easy to use. It takes users step by step through its process. The website suggests the optimal stopovers between any two destinations, and from that the user can decide where and for how many days they’d like to stay. The process then helps them to combine the perfect combination of one-way flights to build a “Quest.”
I put in Los Angeles-to-London to see what free stopovers were available and QuestOrganizer came back with multiple European countries and New York City. I chose Copenhagen (naturally, since I’m part Danish) and then compared it to a similar itinerary on Google Flights. Google Flights came up slightly cheaper but with flights with stops rather than non-stops, which QuestOrganizer returned. The search was easy to use but a bit slow.
Bottom line: QuestOrganizer is a great site to bookmark for when you’re planning your next big trip—because it might just make it a bigger trip.
