Over the course of our launch, we have had some excellent feedback from our community. We’d like to show you some of the ones that make us look good (of course), and would like to say, from the whole Flocations team; Thank You, we love you too!

“I actually benefited from flocations last Friday. I needed to get a flight back from KL and I found out an airline that I did not even think flew KL-SG – JetStar. I did get a ticket on that and made the trip.” Harish Pillay

We love to hear form you (even if you don’t like us!), let us know what you think about Flocations in the comments below!
It was time to do some travel planning again when my girlfriend was pushing me to take some days away from Singapore (and my computer) together. Luckily, this time Flocations would save us the 4-hour hassle of searching for a destination and comparing prices.
In a matter of seconds, the Flocations map was showing us destinations to fly to from our airport (Singapore) for less than $150. I reduced the budget to $50, and among the six available destinations was Penang, for $42. We had never been there, the price was affordable, and a zoom on the map showed it was a small island with nice coastal areas. I love islands. I was sold! (she was too).
Flocations also made it easy to get a hotel: I just clicked the “search hotels in Penang” link, which sent me to Agoda with a wide variety of hotels at different price points within Penang.
Everything was settled in just a few minutes! Compare this with the long and frustrating process of checking AirAsia, JetStar and Tiger Airways’ websites I was used to… Flocations took my price considerations into mind and inspired me to a new destination.
I’m proud that we released Flocations!
And you, what is your experience with Flocations?
Since Wednesday, many of my friends are sending me the link to Google Flights. Initially slightly upset to have such a big player coming with this product just two weeks after we released ours, I regained confidence while trying it.
Google Flights proves how relevant the idea behind Flocations is!
- Searching for flights should be fast (bye bye dear “we’re searching for results” loading screen.
- A map is indeed the best way to explore potential destinations.
Additionally, as people discover Google Flights, they see that it’s only showing flights from the US currently. For flights in the South East Asia region, travellers will use Flocations! We cover the three main low cost carriers around Singapore: AirAsia, JetStar and Tiger Airways; which gives us a pretty good coverage from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok.
Indeed, we did not spend USD 750m to acquire ITA, a leading company developing flight search technologies, so, in comparison, we are missing some features and data, but our vision for leisure travel planning is quite ambitious and we’re excited to bring it to market.
