Got Travel? Need KAYAK
KAYAK.com is a travel search site. Unlike other travel sites, it aggregates information for users, but doesn’t actually sell tickets or make reservations. It simply searches based on users’ input and provides information tailored to their needs. It is up to the user to take that information and make plans. The KAYAK First Class Flight, Hotel Search app for the iPhone is a portable version of the popular web destination.
Travel in Style
KAYAK on the iPhone can assist users in finding the best airfare, hotels, and rental cars. It can check on the status of flights, manage itineraries, and search both business and first class airfares – all with no banner ads.
Last Minute Emergencies
Imagine you are stuck in a city due to weather delays and need a hotel at the last minute. With KAYAK, you can search; filter the results, sort, and find exactly the room you need. Book online via the hotel website or touch a button on the screen for the iPhone to connect you with the hotel by phone. The hotel, flight, and car interfaces are intuitive and easy to use. Each one is very user-friendly and contains pertinent information for the user.
The Airlines section lists the contact information for the major airlines with pricing in US dollars. This may be toggled in the preferences screen for alternate locations globally as well as the user’s preferred currency.
The Trips section contains itineraries, travel plans, and even an area to make and store notes about the trip through the KAYAK.com website. Want up-to-the-minute information about flight delays or flight statuses? Set up the SMS or email notification and the information will automatically be sent to your iPhone. Buzz is the part of the app that alerts users to upcoming deals on airline flights between locations identified by the user.
In addition to hotel, flight, and car searches, KAYAK First Class Flight, Hotel Search also offers fare alerts so you get push notifications of airfares you designate. The packing list feature reminds you to bring your sync cable and charger for your iPhone. A currency converter is included for those traveling to foreign countries. An option to submit reviews of hotels, including photos, is also included. Users may sign in with Facebook so that travel plans can be shared with your social network.
Currently, KAYAK First Class Flight, Hotel Search is available in the iTunes store for $0.99. A free version is also available. The free version has identical capabilities, but has advertisements within the application.
If you are looking for an iPhone application that has an intuitive interface for trip planning, including air, hotel, and car, KAYAK First Class Flight, Hotel Search may be that app. It is definitely a very useful application for trip planning as well for emergency situations. The ability to search, filter, and hone in on the desired information easily is extremely useful. The only drawback for some users may be the fact that KAYAK does not have an interface for actually booking air, car, or hotel. It provides links and telephone access, but no actual booking through the application.
