Our LuckyTrip Experience
LuckyTrip allows you to set your own budget, the budget minimal is £150 and goes up to £1000+ depending on how luxurious you want your trip to be, however, I set myself a budget of £200.
Everyday Luckytrip gives you unique articles about how you can spend your time in a beautiful city and even explore a place on a budget, it’s well worth a good read, it even gave me a few ideas.
In the filters section I can choose which airport I wanted to leave from and how many people will be travelling with me and then I felt a bit lucky and went with the dates set as Lucky Mode and the rest of the setting I kept at default.
After a few seconds, Luckytrip found me a trip to Salamanca, Spain for 2 nights at £180, however, I changed the hotel from ‘BeSalamanca ‘ to ‘Sercotel Las Torres’, which cost me £14 extra.
Booking flights and hotels is really simple, just scroll down and press book, where a menu will pop up saying select your flights and then pick your hotel, once you have done that just press next and processed with entering your details and payments.
Booked a trip to Salamanca! as easy as that.

Issues you may come across
- Choosing specific days may decrease the number of offers you will receive.
- Planning a holiday for 6 people will also result in less holiday destination.
- Make sure you press the like button if you see a destination you like, otherwise you wouldn’t be able to find it again.
A feature I would like: History log of holiday destination the app found, pressing search will usually result in never finding that destination again.
