Editor’s Pick: Plan Your Next Island Trip

Kayak Explore
Kayak.com

You know how much you want to spend. You know when you want to go. The question: Where? The answer: kayak.com/explore.

This new feature of an old, favorite travel site finally functions the way many people plan their upcoming trips — by starting with the timing and prices of flights. Select your home airport, set your price range and choose a time frame (seasons or specific months); then explore the interactive map to find flights that meet your criteria.

At a quick glance, you’ll learn which islands are in high season and which are most affordable. And even if you’re not booking a flight today, it’s nice to look at that map and see all of the islands around the world that you can fly to tomorrow. kayak.com/explore — adrienne egolf
