KAYAK Launches Free Itinerary Management Tool – KAYAK Trips
Free Service Helps People Manage Their Travel Plans After Booking
Norwalk, CT, November 11, 2009 – KAYAK (kayak.com), the world’s leading travel search engine, launched KAYAK Trips, a free itinerary management tool that easily consolidates travel plans from multiple travel sites into one web-based itinerary. To use the service, people simply forward booking confirmation e-mails from travel suppliers and online travel agencies to their KAYAK user account.
Paul English, KAYAK CTO and co-founder said, “We’ve already made it simple to compare hundreds of travel sites at once. Now we’re making it easier to track the bookings you make across any of those sites including one-click sharing of your trip details with your friends.”
KAYAK Trips makes it simple to consolidate flight, hotel, car rental, maps and other events into a single itinerary at kayak.com/trips, by forwarding booking confirmation e-mails from different travel sites to firstname.lastname@example.org. The service is free, secure, and only requires a KAYAK user account. Features include travel alerts, one-click itinerary sharing, calendar integration and other customization options, and will include integration with the KAYAK iPhone and other mobile apps in the next few weeks.
The travel search engine had previously released the service as a beta test in October.
