The next time you want to
book a flight from Kayak's search engine in the U.K., you'll have a new
destination to choose from: space.
Kayak said it's the first search engine in the U.K.
to offer space
flights, though don't look for any Cyber Monday deals: With Virgin Galactic,
it costs just under $250,000 per person, and with XCOR Space Expeditionsit
costs $137,500.

course, these trips are purely theoretical at this point: Neither company has
begun service. Related: The 9 Most Overrated Tourist Destinations The
option to book a Virgin Galactic flight was already an Easter-egg feature in
Kayak's U.S.
search engine.
Here's how to find it: In the search engine,
enter "90n" in the "from" field — that's the airport code for
Spaceport America in New Mexico — enter "50m" in the "to" field to
note how many miles into the Earth's thermosphere you'll be traveling,
make your departure and arrival dates the same, and enter "First" as your
cabin class.
You'll be offered a flight for a cool $250,000. Related:
