How to Track Santa this Christmas Eve


Santa may see us when we’re sleeping, but come Christmas Eve — we’ve got our eye on him. (Wait, that sounds creepier than we intended.) On December 24th, use the KAYAK skill on your Amazon Alexa-enabled device to track Santa’s sleigh ride around the world.

With our skill, we’re giving travelers the ability to follow St. Nick’s nighttime journey. We’ll report back on his real-time location, when he’s expected to arrive in certain cities and, most importantly, when he’ll land in your hometown. What’s more, if you’re lucky enough to have Amazon’s Echo Show, you’ll also be able to see Santa’s whereabouts on a map.

To get the 411 on Claus’s coordinates, simply start by saying, “Alexa, ask KAYAK to track Santa.” Using a combination of navigation software, algorithms and insider-elf intelligence from North Pole Central Command, Alexa employs KAYAK’s Flight Tracker to pinpoint Kris Kringle’s location during his holiday flight.

Here are a few other ways you can ask Alexa for a reindeer report:

  • Alexa, ask KAYAK to track Santa.
  • Alexa, ask KAYAK, when will Santa be in Boston?
  • Alexa, ask KAYAK when Santa will be here?

Just another way we’re making your season a bit more magical. Happy holidays!
