Search more than 400 travel websitesFebruary 14, 2008
Have it ever happen to you, wonder about which online travel agency or airline website will provide the best low-cost fare search results?
It just happened to me and my wife Raquel. We are considering to visit my good friend Eliana Solinas in Milan, flying from Nice. Now what? Where to start? It came to mind Expedia, easyJet (though I wasn’t sure whether they had flights between those destinations), and even visit Nice Cote D’Azur airport website to check the list of carriers. Finally, we also visited Booking.com to make an hotel reservation for the weekend. In conclusion, we sought 4 websites to book a flight and hotel! Being that Milan is a very common destination…
Today, just received an email from Raquel with a link and the following comment “Seems interesting… Love, RB”. Let’s check!
Does it ring any bell?
Now, trust me. You want to try this search engine! “We search across multiple websites at google style top-speed to within seconds give you an overview of the cheapest flights we can find.” Tempting, uh?
Momondo is a Danish initiative founded in 2006. They search across more than 400 travel websites simultaneously through the airline companies’ own websites plus on-line travel agencies.
They’re not an on-line travel agency but a mash-up platform, aggregating content from several different sources.
Momondo inspires you
You already know about flights. Now, get acquainted with their hotel search function “based on the same principle as the flight search engine. It searches more than 100.000 unique hotels worldwide across all categories from cheap hostels to the most expensive luxury hotels.”
Last, but definitely not least, you can find a great travel guide on their website.
Going back to our small trip to Milan, I guess Momondo just saved the day…
