I'm a flashpacker dreaming to be a full time backpacker. Always travel with my girlfriend and never use tour trips.

comment How to search for (cheap) flights, for flexible travel dates within 1 week or more?
Yes @LawArea51Proposal-Commit I'm saying the same that this website. It's difficult to explain in a comment :) When you make a search using SkyScanner (i.e. HK-Toronto first of May), it remembers the price for this date for the next travellers who want to flight from HK to Toronto this day.

About the point 3, SkyScanner saves the results of previous searches and shows you when you ask for non specific dates (i.e. "whole year"). So, you see the prices for the last search in these dates, but if nobody has search for this specific date, then you see a "magnifying glasses" sign to make your own search.

comment Budget ways of getting from Madrid to Portugal
Definitively not. Transport between Spain and Portugal operate as local transport in most of cases and doing so is like to buy two tickets to make a unique trip: normally it will be slower and more expensive.

comment Which are my options to find trip companions online?
@Vince That question was closed because it asked for opinion. Anyway, I believe my question is more specific: I'm asking for a specific trip companion searching website, excluding forums and general travel sites (like this or CouchSurfing).

comment Is there any service to make budget bookings on Internet?
Good site! This will be very useful to me when looking for flights, and even for my friends (it's near natural language and no so complex as ITA Matrix). But still it doesn't cover anything except flights and no all companies are here (I've found cheaper flights after some minutes searching for alternatives). But that's the idea! Thanks.

Well @hippietrail the original idea was to ask about a human-like service to book anything (hotel, flights, bus, tours...) You are free to edit anything you consider, really, I can't see how to improve this title.

Yes, European Groupon includes a travel section, but still the same problem than other search engines like Kayak or Expedia: it only includes a limited amount of options, not everything available on Internet.

Well, this site list most used sites (leader in their segment), but in these sites you cannot go and ask in natural language what you want: you need to search, compare and loose some time on it.

Yes, travel agents could be the response IF they are not biased by their commission partners. Everywhere in the world (I have had to go to travel agents around the world) when you ask for a trip plan on a travel agency it will be highly biased by which are their sponsor, who gives better commissions or other factors like that. In general, my friends comes to me because I'm really independent and only want the best for them (and they know). Of course they usually come after going to a couple of travel agents trying to improve their prices and 99% of times I get it very easily (1% not easy)
