Alexa, ask KAYAK…

By Andrea Charriez

For anyone who has already begun their love affair with Amazon Echo – or for those of you thinking about getting an Alexa-enabled device – we’ve got great news.

KAYAK is collaborating with Amazon so you can access the power of our site without picking up your phone or computer. Just tell Alexa to ask KAYAK to keep you up to date on flight arrivals and departures that are important to you, to give you ideas for where you can go within your budget and to search hotels, flights and rental cars for the destination of your choice. At your command, she’s ready to give you the travel info you need.

Picture this…

Dinner time at the Joneses’
“Alexa, ask KAYAK where can I go for $300?”
(No, Cindy, Princess Pony Sugar Castle isn’t an actual place.)
“KAYAK’s data suggests that $300 can get you to Chicago, Miami or Denver.”*

Your in-laws are on their way over.  You still haven’t recovered from their last visit.
“Alexa, ask KAYAK when will the flight from Austin land?”
*crosses fingers for flight delay*
 “Flight 123 will arrive at 9:14am in Terminal C.”

You are invited to a bachelor(ette) party in Vegas.  To go… or not to go?
“Alexa, ask KAYAK how much is a hotel in Las Vegas from May 12th to May 15?”
“Three star hotels start at $56 per night. Hotels with four stars start at $74 per night. One of the top results for Las Vegas on those dates is Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, a 4 star hotel, for $187 per night.”

Can’t imagine yourself in those scenarios? But, wait, there’s more…

  • Alexa, ask KAYAK to search hotels for May 12 to 15th in San Diego.
  • Alexa, ask KAYAK where I can go in September for $500.
  • Alexa, ask KAYAK to search flights from Boston to Curacao.
  • Alexa, ask KAYAK to search rental cars in Denver.

 

We’re working to make Alexa a KAYAK travel expert so that she can arm you with the information you need to help plan, track and inspire your next trip.
