Discount travel site Hotwire.com has launched TripWatcher.com, a new website offering real-time alerts for airfare price drops, covering thousands of flight routes from U.S. origins every day.
This powerful new tool will help bring a wealth of previously unadvertised savings to trip planners. An expansion of the popular Hotwire.com tool by the same name, Trip Watcher empowers travelers with control, value and flexibility by watching flight itineraries for next weekend, next month or even next year, all customized and stored in a simple “My Trips” section.
Trip Watcher also shares these price-drops with subscribers immediately via email, Facebook or Twitter – often quicker than competitive products – to ensure travelers have the chance to book the lowest airfare possible.
“We’ve all experienced it, we look and look for low fares and the day we decide to take a rest, we hear about a lower-priced ticket after it’s already gone. So a couple of years ago, Hotwire developed the Trip Watcher tool to alleviate some of the guess work from getting a great deal,” said Clem Bason, president of the Hotwire Group.
“The tool quickly gained popularity, and we realized it was an increasingly valuable resource, which is why we decided to launch Trip Watcher as a separate, more sophisticated, flexible and fast-performing site. Using the site, travelers can rest assured they will get up-to-the-minute alerts when prices drop on their ideal flights, giving us all a chance to get the best deal.” Added Bason.
