£100 a year to spend on whatever you want, as long as it’s on something that brings you joy. That’s the Skyscanner Wellbeing Allowance that every employee gets. Many go for a pair of running shoes or a massage, but today we want to salute those who thought well outside the box. Whether it's a camel trek like Antonella Alterio, a new bike for your little one like duke xiao, a meal with friends like Pamela Baker or even a puppy yoga class like Sara Kovacheska, as long as it brings you joy you can claim for it.


This week saw our first in-person Global Induction since 2019. 49 new starters converged at our Edinburgh office for a two-day induction of experiential sessions so they could step into the shoes of our travellers, followed by being piped to their own special bus for a tour around the city!

    Since day 1, Skyscanner has repeatedly shown that it lives up to the company values. It gives great flexibility for a work/life balance, challenging tasks and the benefits are great.


    There isn't much to say here. I'm not living in the country where my family lives so would be nice to increase the amount of days per year where one can work from another country.
