Traveling families: Prices for children and infants
Some airlines might offer discounted airfares for children and/or infants. To help give you the most accurate flight prices and help you rest easy, we always ask for the ages of your children at the time of travel.
Understanding the prices we show
- Once you have entered your passenger information on the website or app, we display our flight search results to show the total price (given to us by the airline/travel agent) for everyone.
- We don’t have the individual prices that make up this total but, to help you compare flights, we show the average price per person. This is the total group price, divided by the number of passengers – including children and infants.
- If fare prices are cheaper for any children or infants traveling, you can be assured that we have already taken these discounts into account in the total price.
Once you have selected a flight, we will usually redirect you to the airline or travel agent's website where you will be able to see the fare price breakdown for all individuals traveling. We recommend checking this information carefully before you book, however the total price for all passengers should match the total price you were shown on Skyscanner.
Prices for minors traveling alone
Some airlines have different rules and prices for people under age 18 who are traveling alone. We recommend you check this information with your chosen airline or travel agent before you book.
