Creative flight combinations help travelers save on airfare
REYKJAVIK - Dohop.com has released an updated version of its global flight search engine.
REYKJAVIK – Dohop.com has released an updated version of its global flight search engine. The update includes several improvements aimed at making money and saving flight combinations that are easier to find.
Where other search engines simply list the pre-arranged flights from airlines or travel agencies, Dohop.com searches deeper and suggests possible flight combinations that may include low cost carriers. The results can sometimes include surprisingly low fares and usually more alternatives for departure and arrival timings. The potential savings in money and time can be substantial.
“As the cost of air travel keeps going up, it becomes more important for consumers to search widely and compare before they book. Dohop’s latest release is packed with flight information that’s difficult to find in one place elsewhere and offers search features that help people spot cheap flight options and connections with low-cost airlines,” said Frosti.
Dohop.com compares rates from airlines and travel agents and provides route maps and information on what airlines fly where. Multiple ticket itineraries can sometimes save hundreds of dollars in fares; at other times booking with a single vendor may be the best option – Dohop.com is designed to present all options without bias and allows for easy sorting and filtering to fit the preferences of each user.
Frosti continued, “Sometimes it’s not even about the price of the tickets, if you can shorten the trip by one stop and six hours of a flight to the family vacation, and it costs you just a little bit more, it’s not even a tough choice.”
