MOMONDO EXTENDS FLIGHT AND HOTEL SEARCH
Buying two one-way tickets with different airlines can sometimes be cheaper than a return-ticket. That is why travel meta-search momondo is now introducing combined tickets, where one-way tickets from different suppliers are combined into a cheaper return trip. At the same time, momondo extends hotel search in collaboration with HotelsCombined.
Now users will be presented two combined one-way tickets, when searching for flights on momondo, if the combination of two one-way tickets from different suppliers is cheaper than a return-ticket from one supplier. This gives users more opportunities to find cheap return-trips, typically on routes operated by low cost airlines.
An example could be that the user searches for a return-ticket from London to Berlin - the price in this example is £79 for a return-ticket from one supplier, while the price is £59 for 2 one-way tickets from two different suppliers. Thus, it is cheaper for the user to book the 2 one-way tickets.
"We collect millions of prices on flight tickets every day, and now our technology makes it possible to combine flight tickets across suppliers. This can give significant savings for those users, who don't mind booking tickets with different suppliers", says Pia Vemmelund, CEO of momondo.
momondo also extends its hotel search in collaboration with HotelsCombined, the world's leading hotel price comparison site. The extended hotel search gives users the opportunity to search and compare millions of hotel offers worldwide on momondo.
