    Going to Maine doesn't have to be hard, especially when you have 3 popular options for travel covered including flights, trains, and cars. Add reservations to that and the city looks all the more appealing.

  • A joy to use Jun 15, 2018

    Kayak has been a fantastic company to use for anything travel! & has continued to impress me with their fun and very easy to use features. Airline companies often set standard pricing for their flights and the caveat that the normal person is looking for it matching all these flights with their specific needs i.e. layover timeline, # of bags, airline make/model, & flight times. A ‘Good Deal’ is a very generalized term and many other apps use that as their main means of persuasion when in fact it’s clear that sites like Kayak are so good at categorizing exactly what meets your needs and alining airliners to your schedule, like advertised they have a multitude of tools like bag number and layover timeline settings with a accurate representation of what the cost will be regardless if it is two separate companies. If you choose a flight selection that has a 2 hour layover for one airliner and you select ‘book’ the airliners website which it directs you to within the app has that selection already selected. I could go on and on about how easy and secure this app is to use so please give it a try.

    This app exceeds my expectations. I'm a first time traveler and Kayak has helped me stay organized, keep me up to date and everything in one place. Alot less stress on my part. Instead of trying to remember what app I used for what reservation and having to search through troves of emails I can just go to kayak and with a few clicks I have every important piece of information. Absolutely love it and recommend it. Especially for first time travelers who have no experience in this area.
  • I love this app Mar 5, 2019

    By H3110 101
    I got this app for one plane flight, simple as that. I was planning on deleting it right after because I thought I had no use for it. But then I started to realize that any trips I was planning on taking would show up on this app and would be organized by time and date (because I connected my email). I’m planning on taking an Amtrak to the airport and then back again & accidentally chose the wrong date for the train back, and because Kayak organizes the trips so well, I was able to catch that but if not for this app, that would have been $20 down the bin & a missed class. I honestly love this app because there are no annoying adds that pop up when I’m trying to figure my plans out & it helps me organize everything so well. It also works offline when I’m looking at my already planned trips which will help out a lot when I’m abroad. I don’t use the search tool within the app for hotels cars or flights, but they have that option as well.
  • Great Site Mar 17, 2018

    I've been using Kayak to book my flights for about 2 years now. I like them. Only thing that would make it better was if you could filter what types of flights you wanted for alert emails. I have two kids I'm flighting with this time and even though my last two flights basic economy was a great option because I'm not particular about where I sit, this time around I need to ensure my boys are beside me. I get really excited to see a price in a email just to see it's basic economy and the regular economy tickets are like $40 more. $40 difference is a lot when you need 3 of them. Another great improvement would be being able to mix and match the flight there and the flight back. Since we're going to New York to visit my fiancé I want a really early flight to get there and a late afternoon to come back. Sometimes they add up like that but usually they don't. I could book them separate but it would be a lot easier if they could just be chosen like that. Those are my only complaints. Still like and will use the site.

    i really like that you can have an open ended destination. i like to take short jaunts here and there, so it helps me pick where to go. I do wish there was a way to set up email alerts with more specific criteria. instead of staying within a certain radius, i would like to stay outside a radius - in my case, i don't want anything within 1K miles. but it is an easy app to use and the notifications are actually helpful and not overbearing in frequency.

    This is such a good app so much better than Trip It or any of the other travel apps. But I really wish there was a way to automatically add the same passengers to different flights. So you don't have to add the same info for the same passenger over and over again. Also I wish that after you have put in a passenger/travellers info including their ticket number and seat number it would load mobile boarding passes onto the app for that flight. Or you could import mobile boarding passes. Keep up the good work Kayak. If you add these suggestions it will be 6 stars. P.S. I also wish you could change the profile of the travelers. P.P.S. Could you please add more games to do offline on your flight like: Sudoku, Crossword Puzzles,Tic Tac Toe, Hangman, Etc... -#1 fan

    Great little app that's always responsive when you need it. I always check for prices here before I purchase a trip, book a hotel or car rental. I have not used the trip activities section but I understand it is very extensive as well. I also love how easy it is to track all my trip related information no matter where I buy it from. Highly recommended.

    The app is amazing. It is beautifully designed and works amazing. I only have one problem with it. It won’t let you search for a “youth’s” flight with no adult. Anyone above 12 is allowed to fly by themselves. They have a “youth” listed as a person between 12-17, whereas a “child” is 2-11. It would seem that they have this separated for the purpose of allowing someone to look at prices for just a youth; However, even when the youth ticket is added, when you try and delete the adult ticket selected on default, it will tell you that there must be one adult traveling. This makes it harder for me because different airlines charge different fees for unaccompanied minors, especially the ones that charge for the unaccompanied minor service no matter their age. As I am trying to book a flight for 2 teenagers, this is necessary for me. Disregarding that, the app is the most user friendly and easy to use booking apps I’ve seen.

    Great app, best feature is that it shows total hotel cost including tax and fees that are typically hidden and hard to find. I wish it had the price chart feature and general dest like "Europe" similar to Google flights. What most travel companies dont understand, is that people typically had a target budget but not a specific destination. Imagine an app being able to search: Two week trip, must leave Fri, must be back on Sun, Non-stop flights, Europe, anytime in the next 6 months.
  • Worst experience ever spend over a thousand because of this company Mar 29, 2019

    By eddie laso
    I normally use them for any vacation I go on but I missed my flight on Saturday in lax going to Charlotte NC and when I got to the airport they said only see one ticket from Washington to Charlotte and could not see any other tickets so we had to purchase new tickets on top of this from some where else but kayak charged my bank account and reaching them was impossible because it was an computer speaking for them I left my number and still have not received a call back from them if it was not for my bank I would not have receive a refund so if you do not care to speak to actual customer service reps then use it
  • Use hopper instead Feb 9, 2022

    By BEWARE: WARNING
    I’ve used hopper forever as I travel monthly. A friend recommended kayak and I have booked 2 trips with it. The first it rerouted my and added another stop without letting me know on a round trip. The second, which inspired this review was a multi city trip. It messed up my reservation and I spent an hour at the help desi fixing it during check in for the first flight. After this story, it rerouted us for our next stop to have a layover in city in the opposite direction without sharing this information to or giving an indication as to what happened to our initial booking. I then went in to move a flight time after already paying for the insurance, I looked up how to do this on their app and when I hit “change” to see other options it simply DELETED our flight reservation with no notification or prompt warning us. We were not given a refund or other alternatives to switch back in or change flights. If you were wondering they do not have customer service as they say you need to contact the airline for assistance as they are only a third party site. For our flight home it has moved our reservation to the following day when I work and with another timely layover. I genuinely never write reviews but I hope this saves someone the trouble 😊

    This app is just rip-off garbage! First, it doesn't show you the final price of a hotel, so what you end up paying could easily be twice what's shown. Then the hotels this app shows aren't always there. Often, when you click on a hotel to see the "deal", the actual cost shown by the hotel is much more. The app doesn't let you filter, and the sort order is simply "trust us". This means they shows hotels that have paid a fee higher in the order. I've used the Kayak website before, which is why I downloaded and used the app on a recent trip to Florida (what a mistake!). The website is helpful and useful, and I'll probably continue to use it, but I uninstalled the app while on my trip. My advice - unless you have money falling out of your pockets, don't use this app.

    It used to be really good, but recently it's just awful. They often direct you to book at shady sites, half the time the price they show isn't actually available when you try to book (just repeatedly keeps saying "Booking failed" and suggesting trying again, without ever actually updating the prices), it's incredibly slow, and arguably worst of all, doesn't show the best deals, even when Skyscanner or the airlines' own sites do.
  • Beware of “trips” portion of App Apr 23, 2018

    By NOK1033
    I have used kayak for a long time but recently had a very terrible experience and will not be booking flights through kayak anymore. Beware of the “trips” portion of the app. I bought a flight through kayak and it was added to my trips. There were changes to my flight, but my trips still reflected the original times, even though I used kayak to purchase my flights. Long story short I ended up missing my flight and paying lots of money in change fees. It’s odd to me that the company automatically lists the flight you purchased through their company under “trips” but do not update the flight information if an airline changes flight times. Even when I missed my actual flight my app still said “4 hours 27 minutes until take off”. Super unfortunate end to a trip, but learned my lesson to never book with kayak again. Also, when trying to sort and talk through this issue, I was unable to speak with anyone from kayak. The closest contact to a human you can get is through an email.

    After the break and fix, it's back to unusable. UPDATE : Kayak must have put a fix in. Works great now, as always. I especially like the explorer function. Normally a great app, but the new update makes the app hang. When it eventually starts, I can't log in with email. The login with email button spins. Once Il actually put in my user name and password, but "submit" button was grayed out. Literally unusable.
  • Nov 15, 2019

    By A Google user
    The application has declined. The dates on the flight options show only 3 digits, not 4. So, November 21 shows as 11/2 not 11/22. You have to click on the option to know what date is indicated. Also, on the calendar, for various dates, such as +/- 3 days, the calendar shows brackets for only - 3 days. Finally, the application often fails to complete a search. It just "times out."
  • Works but it’s a little sketchy Oct 31, 2018

    By .jay
    So I realized after buying tickets through Kayak that Kayak is basically a curator for a bunch of possibly sketchy online travel agencies. Some data doesn’t get transferred over properly, your “My Trips” tab doesn’t always reflect what’s actually going on with your trip, and they completely absolve themselves from all responsibly once you buy tickets from whoever they linked you to. It’s not immediately clear who you’re dealing with unless you’re looking for it, because everything is still wrapped in Kayak’s branding and chrome. Hopefully, I won’t get screwed over by the company I bought tickets from. But I don’t feel good about my experience using Kayak as a service and will refrain from using it again, regardless of how my trip turns out. I’ll come back in a few months to update my review to reflect the end result.
  • Jun 14, 2022

    By Chess Is from Chester
    Not all as it seems. Booked flights, lengthy process, Kayak gave cheaper than other quotes for the flight. Then just before I hit 'book' it bumped up the price by a thousand dollars. It's an old con. Be warned. Uninstalled. UPDATE REPLY TO KAYAK: This reply simply isn't true. I was on the phone with a travel agent when trying to make the booking on Kayak. From the start, the agent told me the flights I was booking on Kayak weren't available. This was only confirmed at the end of my Kayakbooking.

    I'm never booking my flights or hotels through kayak again. Had a horrible experience for booking a hotel room. Absolutely no accountability at all. They haven't resolved or bothered to solve the issue even though I have been following up since the last five months.
  • Kayak + Skyscanner: Bait and switching now... May 25, 2019

    By HerFuzziness
    Posted the same bad review for Skyscanner too: A few years ago, I stopped using Momondo because it would advertise flights for one price, THEN raise the price AFTER you input your credit card information. Kayak (and Skyscanner) isn't that bad, but for the last month, every time I've checked a price for the EXACT same flight for the EXACT same date, it advertises the same "bait" price, then after clicking on the adjacent link, the price doubles, then triples. Not sure why you'd advertise a one-way flight for $254 FOR A MONTH, but then increase it to $720. Shouldn't you stop the BS bait price on the umpteenth search? Should I blame the cookies? And you must realize that customers can actually search a plane's seat availability, so the claim that the seats are limited is tired, not just dishonest. So, way to go, Kayak. You're just as useless as Momondo and Skyscanner now.

  • UPDATE: Bring back watchlist Nov 5, 2019

    By Clean app
    UPDATE: so for some reason they buried the watchlist feature in settings. Not a great move. But it’s still around. Still a great app overall. Bring back watchlist please. One of the only reasons I had the app. Seems I’m not alone in that sentiment. I’m sure kayak has an algorithm to not fix this problem unless their Apple rating goes below a certain point. My guess is the airlines asked them to remove the feature. Also annoyed you can’t search in explore with the option to search by amount of time for a trip either. Also seems like something the airlines wouldn’t want them to offer. Maybe I’m wrong and this will get fixed tomorrow!

    Love the "Trips" option to email all the ticket confirmations to Kayak and have the app to organize and save them into an itenerary. So nice to have everything in one spot and have reminders of when to check-in. Kayak even told me about a delay and gate change before the airline contacted me. Great job Kayak! I have recommended the app to my friends/family who have multiple flights and events to keep up with. My favorite travel app! Please keep it free and have a transparent privacy policy.

Since we're going to New York to visit my fiancé I want a really early flight to get there and a late afternoon to come back. Sometimes they add up like that but usually they don't. I could book them separate but it would be a lot easier if they could just be chosen like that. Those are my only complaints. Still like and will use the site.

    By Colonel Brian M
    As a retired military officer I’m entitled to “Space Available” flights on military aircraft. For the past five years I’ve taken advantage of this to fly from Travis AFB in California, through Yokota AFB in Japan to my final destination in Singapore. That’s when I start using KAYAK to investigate and book flights throughout South East Asia. Using KAYAK I’ve been able to comfortably book flights to Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and the Philippines. I also use KAYAK to get me to and from Orlando to Sacramento to start and finish the free portion of my travel from California. I’ve tried other travel sites and always return to KAYAK. I particularly like the feature allowing me to check the day before and after a travel date to get the cheapest flight. I don’t know how we’ll KAYAK works in other parts of the world, but where I travel it’s clearly the best.

    Great overall experience. But I can't stand that it tracks when you're looking for a certain flight and then keeps raising the price. It's very unprofessional to present a certain price and then change it to a higher one when you click it. If that continues I will book my flights elsewhere
  • Not always updated or working Sep 23, 2018

    By H2018A
    It seems your recommendation for price change is not always appearing. Sometimes it recommends to wait as the prices will drop and sometimes does not show up at all. Then you want to follow it, but even the next day it does not tell anything, it makes it confusing to decide on waiting or buying the ticket at that time or still continue waiting as was suggested a day before. You buy the ticket due to uncertainty of the idea that in fact prices are still going up in those two days then after a week it starts showing up to wait again as the prices will drop. This is not costumer friendly. It is valuable to have such option for following, but if not consistent it becomes tricky.

    Love the app. I use it all the time for researching my next trip. Only thing I wish was different is, I wish I could choose which airport to use the explore search from. It defaults to a local regional airport and the prices are hugely inflated. Other then that ,it's been good.
  • Aug 16, 2020

    By Katie Lehto
    It would be cool if you would offer "duration," "weekend," and/or days of the week as part of your explore filters (in addition to date, price, distance, and theme). That way I could choose to only see trips that were on the weekend, or were four days long, or went from Thursday to Sunday, for examples.

    Kayak , flight booking are good and faster. But one drawback. For instance for ticket booking from UAE to India flights kayak have linked to 2 or agencies , where the ticket price given are perfect and good. But while selecting additional facility like seats(indian airline will charge aed 15 for selecting a seat whereas to kayak or travelgenio I paid aed 37/- per seat. For 1 person paying aed 37 is fine. But for 4 members , to and fro the total cost around aed Aed 296/-, a loss)
  • Not properly working lately Jun 27, 2022

    By Feafaye
    This app has been accurate for me for years but lately it’s missing the mark. Today I used it to try and find a specific flight and it never pulled it up and kept giving a session expired message even when I close and reopen. I winded finding that specific flight by logging into my personal United account. Kayak failed to show that flight and there were plenty seats left. This is the 4th time it’s happened which is why I’m writing this review. I book flights as an assistant so it’s vital I get accuracy and I hope this app starts working like it used to.
  • Please improve the watchlist Aug 10, 2018

    By doxzero
    It’s a great app I use a lot, but it would be nice to have additional parameters in the watch list like a range of trip duration. A lot of times the chap flights being suggested are just not long enough and I would prefer to be able to just set the parameter to however many days max/min range I’m interested in to filter out the noise. Maybe that’s the answer, just allow day range as a filter option. Excellent work. I really enjoy and often use what you folks have created and I hope you will let your whole team know that.
  • Website is great. App not so much. Mar 11, 2020

    By Ericwood86
    We’re planning a wedding. The app, despite specifying dates without the option of plus/minus one day, it’s just factored in without making it clear that they have done that. You have to be smart enough to check dates, for day scouting out a destination wedding venue. Which sounds stupid since dates are obvious. But you give us a cocktease of flights extremely by one day off from correct travel plans and it’s not until we double check that we are disappointed. Appreciate all that you do, but you need to do better. On your website it’s quite clear if you’re adding a day either direction. On your app you just do it and don’t let us know. You have to assume we are stupid and won’t double check until the point we book. Bc that’s what most of us are. Stupid.
  • Ok for searching flights Oct 31, 2017

    By 2man73
    Using this to compare flights. Works ok if you know how to work around the issues. Airlines are smartening up and for example offer very reasonable prices until you discover that your first checked bag, your hand luggage, your meal and who knows what else all cost extra, so to really compare apples to apples gets harder and harder. Also, what I don’t like are the constant nagging to register and constant app updates that seem to bring no new functionality (and it’s fine, if it does what it needs to do I don’t need an update - but it seems like I’ll be able to price compare my baggage cart, coffee, travel literature and parking garage soon once the developers run out of ideas) and just seem to be done to remind people to use the app.

    Deal are usually with third party wholesalers and not directly with the airlines. I avoid wholesalers simply because if there is a flight itinerary problem you usually spend a fortune on multiple calls to an Indian call center (Expedia ). Kayak is good for researching fares however, if you want security, book flight directly with the airlines.
  • Could do a lot more and a good feature does not work. Jan 23, 2020

    By Pakitt
    I use Kayak very often to track prices and find the best connections. The “See cheapest dates” function doesn’t work though. If a price is listed for a specific set of days, when you click on it the resulting search is markedly more expensive. Pity it would be an excellent function, but it doesn’t reflect reality and doesn’t show updated/current information. Another issue I have is that you cannot specify different cabin classes for different multi-leg trips. I’d like to able to set e.g. premium economy for long haul flights, and economy for shorter ones. Instead the class is applied inflexibly to all legs of a trip.
  • Love Kayak but the app is buggy lately Feb 6, 2019

    By ammusic27
    I’ve been a Kayak user for several years now and have always had a good experience. As of late, however, the app has been extremely buggy for me. It takes FOREVER to load flight options and sometimes it freezes up. Perhaps this is just an issue with my phone, but hopefully if others report the same thing they will look into it. Will still continue to use Kayak, but probably via browser instead of app.
  • Explore Aug 10, 2018

    By maysagg
    I liked the app because I was able to do explore and look at tickets all over the world around my desired travel time. It must have just changed and I don’t really like it. I’ve been able to get crazy good tickets from the US to Europe and Asia because of the explore feature. I love to travel and when I see a good deal I never hesitate to buy the ticket right then and there. Really hope that they bring it back to the app!
  • Used to be great... May 11, 2018

    By Y2K'
    What happened.... I use the explore part of the app to get most of my flights. The newest update has made it where you can't select out of the country, and the even with in the states it won't work. I would give it a one star but I have used this app with handful of times with great success, I wish you guys wouldn't have ruined it. Make this App Great again With every update this app is getting worse and worse...

    It used to be really good, but recently it's just awful. They often direct you to book at shady sites, half the time the price they show isn't actually available when you try to book (just repeatedly keeps saying "Booking failed" and suggesting trying again, without ever actually updating the prices), it's incredibly slow, and arguably worst of all, doesn't show the best deals, even when Skyscanner or the airlines' own sites do.

    The application has declined. The dates on the flight options show only 3 digits, not 4. So, November 21 shows as 11/2 not 11/22. You have to click on the option to know what date is indicated. Also, on the calendar, for various dates, such as +/- 3 days, the calendar shows brackets for only - 3 days. Finally, the application often fails to complete a search. It just "times out."
  • Works but it’s a little sketchy Oct 31, 2018

    By .jay
    So I realized after buying tickets through Kayak that Kayak is basically a curator for a bunch of possibly sketchy online travel agencies. Some data doesn’t get transferred over properly, your “My Trips” tab doesn’t always reflect what’s actually going on with your trip, and they completely absolve themselves from all responsibly once you buy tickets from whoever they linked you to. It’s not immediately clear who you’re dealing with unless you’re looking for it, because everything is still wrapped in Kayak’s branding and chrome. Hopefully, I won’t get screwed over by the company I bought tickets from. But I don’t feel good about my experience using Kayak as a service and will refrain from using it again, regardless of how my trip turns out. I’ll come back in a few months to update my review to reflect the end result.
  • BEWARE! Nov 20, 2017

    By JY237
    Up to this point, I have book many of hotels and flights with no issue. kayak has been my go to app for booking trips. BEWARE of a Kayak partner Vayama. When making flight, Kayak forwards you to a partner travel site for booking. On Kayak, flights are advertised as one level, ie economy class, which includes check-in luggage, but after purchased the ticket are downgraded to lesser class with no check-in luggage. Before booking, I went to airlines site to verify what was included in the economy class. I called the partner and the agents yelled at me. FALSE ADVERTISEMENT! I would recommend for all to check better business bureau. I wish had checked before wasting my money with them.
  • Terrible user interface Feb 24, 2018

    By DragonBlue
    Kayak app used to have much better user interface, this version is just terrible! 1. When selecting flexible dates flight options are displayed as a list, instead of table. Who wants to go through the list of hundreds of flights ... one needs to see table w dates first 2. Starting page in app - minimalism but reduced functionality. One has to click/tap on various menus etc .. and at the end one can not see what options are selected .. eg. flexible (+/- days) dates, biz vs economy ... alternative airport ... nothing is visible Summary, this app lost its value when interface was changed. I still use kayak but only on my laptop
  • What does HAND LUGGAGE mean? Jun 14, 2021

    By FogCityNative
    What exactly does HAND LUGGAGE mean? To some airlines hand luggage means an under seat personal item and conforming carry on bags cost extra. Viva Air will sometimes gives away checked baggage (which costs them money in labor to load and unload) but always charges for a bag in the overhead bin just to screw their flyers. American and Copa only charge for checked bags. Southwest doesn’t charge for a checked bag. Then the rules are complicated by if the flight is domestic or international. I did not buy a well priced flight because KAYAK used the undefined term HAND LUGGAGE. One star, sorry. That failure to define terms cancelled all other stars. Fix it and I’d give 5 stars. Imagine if hotels were priced like airline tickets. Want bedding on your mattress? Extra. Want a pillow? Extra. Need a second key? Extra. Toilet paper? Extra. Towels? Extra. In room locker? Extra. The airlines have made flying a miserable experience. KAYAK: Define Hand Luggage exactly for every airline and flight.
  • Missing Obvious Flights for No Apparent Reason May 25, 2018

    By PerfectTimingNV
    This is unacceptable: it’s completely missing certain flights. For example, checked for nonstop flights from PDX to LAS on May 27th -it completely omitted three flights from Alaska Airlines. But, it showed one Alaskan flight that involved a transfer. And no, the directs were not sold out, not even close. I tripled-checked that there weren’t any parameter issues. I’ve suspected this in the past while searching for flights, but didn’t have this confirmation. This is literally the most important thing about a flight booking website -to show all options -and it failed. App deleted.
  • Issue with airfare prices Jan 7, 2018

    By Disappointed Twin Momma
    I’ve been using Kayak for YEARS and I’ve never faced a problem till now. We fly to Hawaii annually and I usually book my flights through kayak. What I am noticing is that when looking up flights it will say one price and then once it redirects to the site that is offering the flights, the price goes up $100+ this has never happened to me before while using this app and I don’t know if it’s a glitch, but it’s very misleading and I will go elsewhere to book my flights. I’m disappointed.
  • No deals here/filters fail Sep 10, 2019

    By Stevebonk
    Helpful as a list of the available 2 or 3 airlines that hold a monopoly on airline routes and bait and switch with hidden fees, but that’s it. The default is “best”, not price, and the filters never stay, so the so called amazing prices are for 5:00 am flights with one or two stops you’ve already filtered out but keep coming. Kayak was acquired in 2012 by bookings holdings, a Nasdaq corp. which owns priceline, cheaptravel, and a half dozen other apps. You’ll fine the exact same crappy deals on those apps.
  • Hotels difficult to find on kayak Sep 15, 2018

    By bwvla
    Many hotel search result were not actually available and hopelessly outdated. Upon clicking properties message returned, this deal is no longer available... one hour later searched again, same results came back and items upon clicking were still not available. If the site knew they were not available when i clicked an hour earlier why are they still a search result? Very frustrating
  • Use hopper instead Feb 9, 2022

    By BEWARE: WARNING
    I’ve used hopper forever as I travel monthly. A friend recommended kayak and I have booked 2 trips with it. The first it rerouted my and added another stop without letting me know on a round trip. The second, which inspired this review was a multi city trip. It messed up my reservation and I spent an hour at the help desi fixing it during check in for the first flight. After this story, it rerouted us for our next stop to have a layover in city in the opposite direction without sharing this information to or giving an indication as to what happened to our initial booking. I then went in to move a flight time after already paying for the insurance, I looked up how to do this on their app and when I hit “change” to see other options it simply DELETED our flight reservation with no notification or prompt warning us. We were not given a refund or other alternatives to switch back in or change flights. If you were wondering they do not have customer service as they say you need to contact the airline for assistance as they are only a third party site. For our flight home it has moved our reservation to the following day when I work and with another timely layover. I genuinely never write reviews but I hope this saves someone the trouble 😊
  • Jun 18, 2021

    By Dan Stein
    This app is just rip-off garbage! First, it doesn't show you the final price of a hotel, so what you end up paying could easily be twice what's shown. Then the hotels this app shows aren't always there. Often, when you click on a hotel to see the "deal", the actual cost shown by the hotel is much more. The app doesn't let you filter, and the sort order is simply "trust us". This means they shows hotels that have paid a fee higher in the order. I've used the Kayak website before, which is why I downloaded and used the app on a recent trip to Florida (what a mistake!). The website is helpful and useful, and I'll probably continue to use it, but I uninstalled the app while on my trip. My advice - unless you have money falling out of your pockets, don't use this app.
  • Beware of “trips” portion of App Apr 23, 2018

    By NOK1033
    I have used kayak for a long time but recently had a very terrible experience and will not be booking flights through kayak anymore. Beware of the “trips” portion of the app. I bought a flight through kayak and it was added to my trips. There were changes to my flight, but my trips still reflected the original times, even though I used kayak to purchase my flights. Long story short I ended up missing my flight and paying lots of money in change fees. It’s odd to me that the company automatically lists the flight you purchased through their company under “trips” but do not update the flight information if an airline changes flight times. Even when I missed my actual flight my app still said “4 hours 27 minutes until take off”. Super unfortunate end to a trip, but learned my lesson to never book with kayak again. Also, when trying to sort and talk through this issue, I was unable to speak with anyone from kayak. The closest contact to a human you can get is through an email.

    After the break and fix, it's back to unusable. UPDATE : Kayak must have put a fix in. Works great now, as always. I especially like the explorer function. Normally a great app, but the new update makes the app hang. When it eventually starts, I can't log in with email. The login with email button spins. Once Il actually put in my user name and password, but "submit" button was grayed out. Literally unusable.
  • Jun 14, 2022

    By Chess Is from Chester
    Not all as it seems. Booked flights, lengthy process, Kayak gave cheaper than other quotes for the flight. Then just before I hit 'book' it bumped up the price by a thousand dollars. It's an old con. Be warned. Uninstalled. UPDATE REPLY TO KAYAK: This reply simply isn't true. I was on the phone with a travel agent when trying to make the booking on Kayak. From the start, the agent told me the flights I was booking on Kayak weren't available. This was only confirmed at the end of my Kayakbooking.

  • Kayak + Skyscanner: Bait and switching now... May 25, 2019

    By HerFuzziness
    Posted the same bad review for Skyscanner too: A few years ago, I stopped using Momondo because it would advertise flights for one price, THEN raise the price AFTER you input your credit card information. Kayak (and Skyscanner) isn't that bad, but for the last month, every time I've checked a price for the EXACT same flight for the EXACT same date, it advertises the same "bait" price, then after clicking on the adjacent link, the price doubles, then triples. Not sure why you'd advertise a one-way flight for $254 FOR A MONTH, but then increase it to $720. Shouldn't you stop the BS bait price on the umpteenth search? Should I blame the cookies? And you must realize that customers can actually search a plane's seat availability, so the claim that the seats are limited is tired, not just dishonest. So, way to go, Kayak. You're just as useless as Momondo and Skyscanner now.
  • Jun 1, 2022

    By H Hjikakou
    I don't know what's changed but it's now bloody useless. I put in my dates with +-3 days and I get the most RIDICULOUS suggestions: Berlin to Larnaca in 2 days for 450 euro, what the hell? If I go on easyJet and check manually I find flights at 1/3 cheaper with the expected travel time. I could have sworn there used to be a feature that tells you when airlines fly to a location and the option to see when in a month is cheap. Basically I'm uninstalling, the app sucks.
  • Custom tab booking??? Jun 24, 2022

    By tanella555
    This was a great website, then app, and now it’s awful!! The latest update changed bookings direct with airlines to be in custom tab instead of taking user to their preferred browser. What that did is now none of my prefilled credentials work. I used to book within minutes now it takes me hours to remember my login. I simply now just look and then go on United and book direct. And in terms of search algorithms it’s now much worst. Used to find cheap flights but now for some reason most expensive go first. My eyes hurt to see this. I literally have to sort by cheapest every single time. Like really???!?! These days Google flight started to make more sense and shows you approx prices for your dates when select dates. You guys need to go back to the drawing board or your earlier releases.
  • Waste of time, bad service Mar 11, 2022

    By npiccol00
    I attempted to use kayak for the first time the other day. I found a great deal on a flight and booked it, only to wake up the next day to an email from kayak saying the flight couldn’t be booked. I researched the flight on the airlines website and it is a real flight with available seats for booking. I responded to the email asking for more detail as to why my flight couldn’t be booked because the alternative flights they offered me were significantly more expensive. Kayak didn’t bother responding to my inquiry. I will not be using kayak again if they are not willing to back the companies and the prices they allow to advertise on their website. Also, if they allow fraudulent companies to advertiser on their site then I can’t trust using this site again.
