Frequently Asked Questions

Who are you people?

Our co-founders, Junaid and Tom, are travellers just like you! We found the user experience of existing travel apps wasn’t exactly what we were looking for – so we built TakeMeAway. Some random statistics about the team: we speak 11 languages between us, and combined we’ve lived and worked in more than 10 countries, and travelled to more than 60.

What is TakeMeAway?

TakeMeAway helps you to be in great locations for the weekend, all within you budget. We have two aims:

  • To make travel what it should be - an inspirational and exciting experience.
  • To let you control your budget.

What does a weekend mean?

In the Takemeway App, a “weekend” is defined as flying out on Friday and returning on Sunday. Our app lets you browse through destinations that fit your budget for ‘this weekend’ and ‘next weekend’.

Where do you get your offers from?

We partner with Skyscanner and Booking.com. Our deals are put together with TakeMeAway technology; that means we try and get you the best value for money deals.

Is it safe to book with you?

All booking is handled by our partners Skyscanner and Booking.com, so you can be confident your weekend away will be in good hands.

Where are you based?

Our headquarters is based in London, but like our app we have a European flavour with people based in The Netherlands and Switzerland.

Why have the prices gone up?

Unfortunately travel prices are dynamic, especially flights. We do our best to get the most up to date information, but at times we get it wrong. Let us know if an offer is off the mark by emailing hello@TakeMeAway.io

You emailed me the details and prices have gone up!

As mentioned above, travel prices are dynamic and can change between when we find the prices and when you book. To ensure prices are as low as possible, try and book as soon as you can.

How does searching work?

We search for flights from your nearest airport to our list of pre-determined destinations. You can select your closest airport in the Profile section, or select another airport nearby.

There is nothing within my budget!

Unfortunately some weekends are pricier than others! Why not increase your budget and treat yourself to that perfect weekend away :) You can also change the setting for your nearest airport; larger airports have a greater range of flight options that we can search for.
