How to use Skyscanner’s ‘Everywhere’ search to find cheap flights from Malaysia

Have you recently caught yourself daydreaming about your next vacation? To just go somewhere, anywhere, as long as you can get away from work and take that well-deserved holiday and lepak? If that sounds like you, you'll want to check out Skyscanner's 'Everywhere' search to fuel your wanderlust. Find cheap flights to an array of holiday spots departing from Malaysia, and with a few clicks, you're as good as there. Follow our tips below and planning your next trip will be a breeze—almost as breezy as that beach hammock with your name on it.

How to use Skyscanner’s Search ‘Everywhere’ tool?

Step 1: Select your departure point

At the Skyscanner homepage, click on the ‘From’ box and select your nearest airport as your departure point. The screenshot below uses the Kuala Lumpur airport as an example, but if that is not the best airport for you, you can select one that is. If you’re not sure, you can also type in the name of your closest city, or even "Malaysia" for broader results!

Input your most convenient airport to depart from.

Step 2: Type ‘Everywhere’ into the ‘To’ box

Now click the ‘To’ box to the right. You might see a drop-down option that says ‘Flexible?’ That’s the one we’re looking for! Click that (or if there isn’t a drop-down, just start typing "Everywhere" and you’ll see it) and we’re halfway there! Now click the Search Flights button below in green, and Skyscanner’s smart algorithms will match your search criteria and comb the internet for the best deals on flights, just for you.

Step 3: Enter your dates & the number of passengers

If you already have some travel dates and/or number of passengers in mind, Skyscanner’s search allows you to enter those for more accurate results. Click on the ‘Depart’ box and you’ll see the option to enter a Specific date to depart on. And you can do the same for your ‘Return’ date. If you have slightly more flexibility, give the Whole month feature a try, and you’ll be able to compare many flights by each day in a given month. And lastly, if your travel dates are super flexible, the most budget-friendly search would be to find the Cheapest month in a year for the absolute best prices and cheapest flights.

Once you’re finished, click on the green Search flights button to see your flights.

Step 4: Pick the cheapest flights to everywhere and anywhere

After you’ve entered your search, Skyscanner will look through all its databases and give you a list of countries you could fly to and their respective flight prices, sorted with the cheapest on top. Click on the country that sounds the most tantalizing to you, and the results will expand to show you the cities in that country you could fly to, as well as with a further breakdown of flight prices for each destination. And once more, select the city you want, and you’ll get results for various flight times and carriers, with the cheapest flights automatically sorted at the top.

Once you’ve picked a destination city, you can narrow down your search even further with some nifty search filters. If you like snoozing on the plane and waking up at your destination ready to paint the town red, then adjust your preferred flight time to leave at night and arrive in the morning. Used together with the other search filters for picking a flight by duration, airline carrier, and even number of transfers, finding your perfect flight itinerary just got a lot easier.
