Travel Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for road warriors and seasoned travelers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Some time ago I had a bookmark to an awesome travel site, which I've lost. I'm hoping someone else used it. The site was very minimal. You told it where you currently are, and it showed you the cheapest flights either in the next three days, or the whole month, from your current city. Ie, you didn't specify where you wanted to go, you specified where you were, and it told you where you could go.

If it helps narrow it down, I remember the website had a rotating set of background photos of various places, and the UI was very minimal and sat in a small rounded rectangle in the screen center.

Ie, the UI was a nice photo, and then in the very center of the screen, a small rounded-rectangle for search and results. It was very distinctive.

It was a nice approach to travel planning, leading to spontaneous trips, quite unlike all other search sites I've used, and I'd like to find it again.

This question is not a duplicate of "How can I do a broad search for flights?" I am not looking for a general broad search engine. I am seeking a specific travel/search site with specific and unusual functionality that is more specific than in that question and is not answered by any answers in that question.

I hate to sound snippy, but this should have been obvious from reading both questions. (For example, where in that question does it mention the site I'm looking for? I'll answer: it doesn't. This specific site had functionality unlike any other site that I know of, and better than those mentioned in the other question.) This specific site did some cool stuff, which is why I ant to find this one, not a common, well-known one. Please reopen, and please read both questions and answers to verify this, as I believe you should have before closing.

@Ankur Banerjee: Please reopen; you closed mistakenly. I explained why in the question, though I think you should have read the question before closing. –  David M Jan 28 at 12:37

Click on the question you are linked to. Read the different answers highly upvoted. The third links to Skyscanner: www.skyscanner.com. This does EXACTLY what you describe. We are not in your mind nor in your browser so maybe we will not find back the bookmark you had. But before yelling that you disagree with close votes, read. –  Vince Jan 28 at 12:50

I read. Skyscanner does not have this functionality, nor is it this specific useful site. I'm sure knowing about this site would be very useful for other members of the community (if they're travelers as opposed to just booking holidays.) –  David M Jan 28 at 12:54
    
Now, maybe I'm not explaining the site's functionality well, in which case please ask for clarifications. I'm always happy to do so :) But closing is not appropriate. –  David M Jan 28 at 12:55

For trying to locate a webapp from a description you could probably try our sister site, web apps stack exchange –  hippietrail Feb 3 at 10:54

In addition to Adioso and Skyscanner that were already mentioned, there are a few that do this that come to mind. Your description sounds very much like DoHop's "Away".

Another I've used is Momondo. –  hippietrail Feb 3 at 10:53
    
DoHop does look similar! Some of the sites people are posting here look like clones of each other... curious. But I've bookmarked that site to return to. Thanks! –  David M Mar 18 at 18:01

This sounds quite a bit like Adioso.

Nice idea, but it seems as if Adioso just tries to find the cheapest ticket to a fixed set of destinations instead of actually searching for the cheapest destinations. Besides from that, of the three cheapest tickets currently found for flights from Munich, none of the tickets can actually be booked for the price shown by Adioso. From the web site, it is also impossible to tell if the price e.g. includes check-in luggage or not. –  Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Jan 27 at 19:36
    
Mileage clearly varies. I've used Adioso on multiple occasions for intra-Europe travel. Each time, quoted ticket prices were available for booking and each time the quoted price was the available cheapest option (meaning, with all fees but without luggage). –  MastaBaba Jan 28 at 7:14
    
Thankyou, but it wasn't Adioso. It had a much lighter UI, and seemed to search more or different airlines. I updated the question to describe the site's look a bit more. –  David M Jan 28 at 12:18
