Kayak work as mediators between you and businesses like airlines, hotels and rental car dealerships to get the best price. Based on our research, Kayak.com has lower-than-average prices for an online travel site. Kayak’s website is simple and minimalistic, with only the search bar and booking tabs at the top and rates for popular destinations below. After your initial search, there are basic filters to sort your results. If you’re new to using the site, it may appear that you can’t refine a search for a hotel any more than by location and date. However, you can expand for more options when searching for hotels and flights like star rating, amenities or flexible dates.

While you can catch a flight or hotel in almost anywhere, you won’t be able to book any cruises. Kayak also misses the mark on multi-reservation packages. You can only book flights and hotels together using this travel site. Most other discount travel sites offer multiple combinations for vacation packages, typically letting you book flights, a hotel and rental car together or in some other combination.

Kayak lets you search for the same booking on other discount travel sites as well. Comparative prices are a great way to cover more virtual ground by searching multiple sites at once. When you search for fares, the comparative pricing appears as new windows, even if you’re using a small mobile device. This can be a great tool when you intend to use it, but an annoying surprise if you don’t want to compare prices. If you don’t want to see other prices, you can toggle the price comparison on or off.

Kayak’s most outstanding feature is the mobile app available for iOS 7.0 and later and Android 2.1 and later, as well as for Windows 8 phones and Kindle Fire. You can book flights, hotels and rental cars, compare prices, set alerts for the right prices and check your flight status through the app. The booking features on this app are easy to use and work quickly. We also liked the extra features like a customized packing list, currency converter and the airline directory. Outside the app, you can find similar helpful tools on Kayak’s website. The Explore tool shows you rate averages for popular destinations around the world at any time of the year. You can also set up email alerts to notify you when the best prices for your trips are available.
