Find the flight or hotel you want in minutes using Hipmunk's agony-free travel search.
Unlike like other travel search products, Hipmunk helps you find the flight and hotel you want quickly. It does this in a couple of ways:
Agony & Ecstasy sort:
Hipmunk's default sort for flights is called Agony. Instead of blindly sorting by price, Hipmunk sorts flights based on a property called Agony, which takes into account not only a flight's price, but also its duration and number of connections. If you really want to sort by Price, however, Hipmunk can do that. Click the sort buttons at the top of the search results to instantly resort them.
Hipmunk's default sort for hotels is called Ecstasy, which takes into account price, amenities and reviews.
Hipmunk's calendar view of flight results allows you to see your flight options graphically. It's easy to see how flights compare to one another: longer flights take up more space; connection cities and connection lengths are displayed between flight legs. It's also clear what time of day you'll actually be flying.
When you search for hotels, Hipmunk will display all the calendar events in the same time period on the map, so that you can pick a hotel where it will be easy for you to get to your meetings.
Everyone wants something different out of their trip. When you search for hotels, you can turn on heatmaps that correspond to unique interests such as food, landmarks, nightlife and others. This way, you can be sure to stay in an area that matches your preferences.
Hiding bad flights:
Other flight search products show you flights you would never take. These are flights that are dominated by another option that is cheaper, takes off later, and lands sooner. Sometimes these dominated flights can be up to 70% of results. Hipmunk hides these flights by default, allowing you to see the best options at once. If you want to see the dominated flights, click the numbered boxes to the right of each flight.
Hipmunk allows you to open flight searches in multiple tabs. Click the "+ New Search" tab to modify your search and run it again. You can view previous searches by clicking between the tabs.
