Hipmunk is a remarkable new travel search site that aims to take the agony out of travel planning. They designed their site to help people who are overwhelmed with pages of irrelevant search results.
Flight results are presented in a visual “timeline” that allows people to select the best flight for them at a glance:
Hipmunk automatically sorts results by “Agony,” which is primarily a combination of price, flight duration, and number of stopovers. I love this visual “timeline” which makes it easy to understand the tradeoffs between options.
Hotel results are shown on a map so that you can view where in a destination they will be staying and the landmarks near them:
The “ecstasy” ranking incorporates user reviews, amenities, and price. You can also sort it by price, reviews and its distance to a specific location.
Another thing I love about this website is that you can do multiple searches on the same page but different tabs. This is especially useful if you have a few travel destination options in mind but are not certain. Go check it out yourself.
