Why I made this website

Hi, I'm Jelmer and I made Yelmair to help you find cheap airfare and simultaneously try to explain the exciting but sometimes confusing world of air travel.

Why? I think travel helps to get a great understanding of your place in the world, learn from other cultures and get soms perspective on life. I also understand air travel still is very difficult to understand and sometimes scary to visit unknown places. But it shoudn't be! That's why I'm trying to help you.

I took my first flight in 2004 and have been hooked on traveling since. I dived deep into the rabbit hole of travel hacking and wrote a book about it in 2018 (it's called Thuisblijven is duurder in Dutch which translates to Staying home is more expensive) which turned into a best seller.

With Yelmair I'm trying to give you the best and fastest overview of ticket deals in order to start your travel journeys as soon as possible.

If you want to help me grow and improve Yelmair, consider signing up. Members can set flight alerts an have full access to all deals!

Enjoy your travels!
