While we love a good conspiracy, we’ve decided that the robots aren’t yet ready to take over the world… but they are ready to help people search for travel in a new way. So we’re here to announce KAYAK’s integration on ChatGPT, the AI-powered language model developed by OpenAI.
ChatGPT will act as a virtual travel assistant, allowing for more conversational interactions with KAYAK’s search engine. Users can head to ChatGPT and ask it questions in the same way they would ask a human.
By simply typing in natural language queries, like “Where can I fly to from NYC for under $500 in April”, users will receive personalized recommendations based on their search criteria and KAYAK’s historical travel data.
Additionally, ChatGPT’s ability to understand and analyze natural language helps us provide more personalized recommendations on their platform. For example, if someone asks, “I’m looking for a hotel in New York City that’s close to Central Park”, ChatGPT can understand the traveler’s specific needs and preferences and ask KAYAK to provide tailored recommendations based on that information.
Overall, our integration represents a step forward in the world of travel search. By leveraging AI technology to provide more personalized and intuitive search experiences, we’re making it easier than ever for travelers to plan their dream vacations.
And if you think about it, adopting AI technology makes sense for KAYAK. It’s yet another way we’re using the latest innovations (we were among the first to adopt new tech like Alexa and Siri Shortcuts) to meet travelers where they’re at. Thanks, robots.
KAYAK on ChatGPT will be gradually enabled for ChatGPT users (starting with ChatGPT Plus subscribers). After additional testing, it will roll out to more users. For updates, follow us on Twitter.
