As travel plans have been temporarily put on hold, leading travel company Skyscanner has partnered with popular app Geoguessr to create three new games that allow anyone to travel the globe from the comfort of their couch. Skyscanner’s interactive games encourage travel aficionados to test their knowledge of both popular landmarks and lesser-known gems as well as compete with friends to see who knows the remote corners of the globe best. In each game, travellers are shown imagery of landmarks around the world and are asked to place the location on a map—down to the exact street corner.


To truly test travel expertise, Skyscanner has created three distinct games to showcase stunning and sustainable locations that will leave travellers dreaming about their next trip long after they’ve completed the games:

  • Sustainable Destinations to Visit: This game highlights modern, sustainable travel locations where tourism has a positive impact on both the environment and local economy.
  • Amazing Architecture: Whether travellers are passionate about modern design or adore buildings from centuries past, they will enjoy these must-visit structures.
  • Lookalike Cities: Even travel experts might be stumped—these under-the-radar cities look so surprisingly similar to well-known travel destinations.

“Since travel to our dream destinations isn’t possible right now, we’ve partnered with Geoguessr to create interactive games that allow travellers to experience the world at home—including many cities they might not have discovered before,” said Global Brand Director Jo McClintock. “We want to inspire travellers to dream about their next big trip and assure them that, when the world reopens, we will be here to help them explore it.”

Skyscanner is working hard to support travellers through the Covid-19 pandemic with dedicated advice and product support for those searching to get home or for future adventures when the world re-opens. According to Skyscanner’s recent research, a little over 66 percent of Skyscanner travellers believe international travel will be possible within the next 6 months.1 The most recent launches from Skyscanner are part of their #WeWill movement, which is designed to focus on the future, ensuring that hope and faith endure during this difficult time.
