Kayak recognised for flight shopping

Entrepreneur magazine has selected Kayak.com as the 2006 “Best Site for Airfare Shopping” in its 13th annual Business Travel Awards. With travel prices expected to increase over the next year, Kayak.com is recognized for being the best travel site for finding the lowest fares available.

Entrepreneur applauded Kayak.com for the benefits it provides to small business travelers including the fact that “By booking directly with the travel provider, small-business travelers can avoid paying service fees, which are usually charged by travel agency sites. In addition, by booking directly, you’ll benefit from supplier-direct incentives such as upgrades and bonus miles.”

“Meta-search is emerging as the business traveler’s preferred model for finding the best prices for air, hotel and rental car, and Kayak.com continues to be recognized as the top site in the space,” said Dean Harris, CMO of Kayak.com.

“We are honored that Entrepreneur magazine has recognized Kayak.com. It’s gratifying that our efforts have paid off to the benefit of fellow entrepreneurs and business travelers.”

Entrepreneur magazine created the renowned Business Travel Awards 12 years ago to help cost-conscious entrepreneurs obtain “the most bang for their business travel bucks.”
