ooking flights is too hard. There’s simply too many choices: prices, departure times, connecting flights, and loyalty programs. But, after Hipmunk hit the travel scene, I stopped using everything else for flight searches, including Expedia, Orbitz, and Kayak. Hipmunk’s simple, color-coded grid blows everything else out of the water, making it easy to compare all flight options at a glance. And Hipmunk sorts flights by “Agony,” a smart, proprietary algorithm that quickly determines which flight options are objectively the best. If you’re skeptical, well, I can attest that every time I try to out-think Hipmunk’s suggested flights and come up with a better combination, I waste my time.
