Fare guard service unveiled

Farecast.com is releasing of Fare Guard, an innovative new service that allows customers to protect the lowest airfare for their trip without buying a ticket.  Fare Guard provides consumers peace of mind, whether they are firming up travel plans, or shopping for a lower fare.  For a limited time, Fare Guard will be available on Farecast.com at an introductory price of $3 per ticket (regular price, $9.95) until February 1, 2007.

“Customers have told us that a huge pain point they have when shopping for airfare is getting burned by price increases,” said Hugh Crean, Farecast’s president and chief executive officer.  “Now, with the launch of Fare Guard, consumers are protected when they decide to buy later and we are putting our money where our mouth is by backing up our predictions.”
