Thanks to FareFetch, you can now get paid to book flights for strangers. Conversely, if you’re a traveller who’s short on time, you can use the site or mobile app to find deals without having to search the internet yourself.
FareFetch users simply enter a destination and date you’d like to depart and select the total number of passengers. The site will display the average lowest published fare it finds, and based on the estimate, you decide the maximum amount you’ll spend and submit a request.
“Farefetchers” – people who sign up to search flights for others – will then scour the web for deals and book a ticket within 24 hours. If a farefetcher can’t find an itinerary that matches the exact criteria, users pay nothing. If there’s a match, a farefetcher will purchase the itinerary confirm the trip. If the flight costs less than the price the traveler indicated, the farefetcher gets to keep the difference. According to Farefetch’s policy page, Farefetchers can either book the flight themselves and be paid within 48 hours or share booking instructions and receive payment within one week.
Once a farefetcher purchases an itinerary, users can’t cancel or change the terms through the service (individual airlines must be contacted about their cancellation policies). Additional baggage cannot added by farefetchers, which means travellers are entitled to the airline’s standard baggage allowance.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
