Travel Website of the Week: QuestOrganizer

One of the negatives about the 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 or . 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.  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.

    Sorry, Johnny. I usually value your suggestions but I’m testing QO with a relatively simple test itinerary (SFO–>Venice with their suggested 3rd level stopover of Paris). 5 minutes and counting with QO still saying “almost there” in the upper left corner. I have a fast computer and using Chrome. This is a no go for me.

  2. Hi Steven,

    We apologize for the extremely slow speed yesterday and your time waiting for our unresponsive app. The site was also down for a while. The cause was the creation of too many Quests. However, we are happy to say that we diagnosed the issue and it has been 100% repaired along with several other improvements which made QuestOrganizer much more snappy. It took 1 min 40 seconds to create this quest from SFO to Venice with Paris and Stockholm as added destinations, and a $86 savings compared to Google Flights.

    If you would like to give it another go, I don’t think speed is an issue any longer. Please let us know if you have any other issues and we will work on them as well.

    Team QuestOrganizer,
    Douglas, Ela, Leon, and Andrew

    Also, thank you Johnny for such an incredible review!
