About KAYAK

KAYAK is a technology-driven company committed to making online travel better. Cofounders of Expedia, Travelocity and Orbitz started KAYAK in 2004, and they didn’t just want to build another travel website – they wanted to take a better approach to finding travel online.

Our websites (KAYAK.com, swoodoo.com, checkfelix.com) and mobile applications make it easy for people to research and compare accurate and relevant information from hundreds of other travel websites in one comprehensive, fast and intuitive display. Since our commercial launch in 2005, KAYAK has experienced significant growth in both revenues and profitability. We are constantly innovating, developing new tools and services that improve travel, both in big ways and small, and we expect to continue to grow aggressively over the next several years. We are headquartered in Stamford, CT and have approximately 300 employees located in our offices in Stamford, Boston, Berlin, Zurich, and London.
