Hotwire Unveils Airfare Alert Website

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 US origins every day. For example, currently the site is offering San Francisco – Dublin for US$919 (€712).

An expansion of the Hotwire.com tool by the same name, Trip Watcher empowers travellers with control, value and flexibility by watching flight itineraries for next weekend, next month or even next year, all customised 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 travellers have the chance to book the lowest airfare possible.

“We have 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 has already gone,” said Clem Bason, President of the Hotwire Group. “So a couple of years ago, Hotwire developed the Trip Watcher tool to alleviate some of the guesswork from getting a great deal.

“The tool quickly gained popularity, and we realised 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, travellers 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.”
