A Kinder, Gentler Way to Book Flights

Planning any travel? Then check out Hipmunk. It's a huge improvement over the other popular travel booking sites--a much quicker and more-organized experience. "Our goal is to build the best travel site on the Internet," Hipmunk co-founder Adam Goldstein said in a recent article in Fast Company. "And by 'best' I mean the site that helps people find what they're looking for with a minimum of agony." Unlike other sites, Hipmunk has tabs to let you compare multiple searches at the same time. It hides flights "that no intelligent person would take." Plus, they just added a little WiFi indicator directly onto flight search results so you can see easily who offers internet up in the sky. Thank you, Hipmunk! Hip, hip, hooray!


  1. Unfortunately it only finds scheduled airlines & not budget flights (which would be extremely useful). I also feel that any travel sites should use the 24 hour clock – I have come across so many customer errors when using am & pm.

    Also, booking arm is US/Canada focussed, but hey … I love the layout of Hipmunk – it’s so easy to follow & a much ‘gentler’ way to book flights, for sure.

    Have you come across GateGuru : http://t.co/a2EuUN1 ?

  2. It doesn't list budget flights, I agree, but it sure does give a lot of options. I gave it a try and all the listed flights gave me plenty of options to research. Thanks Julie and Bonne Bastille!
