KAYAK searches other travel sites to give users information about cheap flights, hotels, vacation rentals and rental cars. Сustomers can easily compare, choose their preferred deal and book it through the travel sites. KAYAK doesn’t add any extra fees to the cost — the prices come straight from the other travel sites.

How Kayak Benefits Travelers

  1. Thanks to the convenient site and quick search, KAYAK is very popular among travelers. Users make 1.5 million searches on 40 international KAYAK sites annually.
  2. In addition to finding cheap flights, KAYAK offers travelers more tools for easy travel planning: Price Alerts, Price Forecast and KAYAK Trips — free itinerary management tool.
  3. The cheapest ticket doesn’t always mean the most comfortable. Sometimes it’s better to spend an extra $50-100 to avoid a 10-hour connection. KAYAK cares about travelers and always shows the “Best” or “Recommended” suggestions, which are based on several factors including the popularity of the airline, for example.
  4. KAYAK indicates all the additional payments for the different airlines in the search results. For example, extra baggage charges. Therefore, the traveler can immediately calculate the full cost of tickets and compare several deals.
  5. Users can read about popular destinations, the best time to travel and learn about life hacks for travelers on the KAYAK blog.
  6. KAYAK helps travelers plan trips from start to finish. All receipts for ticket purchases and hotel and car bookings are stored in the application. Also, the application will inform travelers about flight time changes, flight cancellations or gate changes. The route, which is built into the application, is available offline and travel information can be shared with friends. Millions of travelers from all over the world plan their trips using KAYAK.
