  • 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

    By A1y2a3n4a5
    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.

    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 except for one thing Jun 11, 2018

    By Maddie1975
    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.

    App froze and shut down when finishing payment. I now have no idea if I just bought $700 worth of plane tickets or not or if I still need to buy them. The flights didn't allow cancellations and I haven't recieved any confirmation email or texts about the flights. Now I'll have to wait a day to see whether the purchase went through or not. If it didn't I will definitely buy my tickets elswhere.

    Fake prices, add taxes and $10 to every advertised price. Kayak advertises hotel rates at $58 but when you click on it none of the rates are $58 it's 68 then add $10 for tax and hotel fees. What you usually get is a $78 hotel infested with bed bugs and claims of breakfast, a gym and pool when that is not the case. Agoda advertising rates on kayak are a joke good luck getting those.

    Such a useless, piece of garbage app. No idea why it's so highly rated. Refuses to show the full estimated price for car rentals instead of per day (even though website shows the full rates just fine). Also what's the point of putting pick-up/drop-off times in the search field when the results just ignore them completely and show agencies that aren't open anywhere near those times?

    I guess forcing people to create an account to search for flights so you can gather personal information means this app is now spyware as it will spy on you as you search. Guess I search for flights the old fashion way now.

  • 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.

  • Update! Feb 5, 2019

    By Kwalter11
    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

    When searching flights I really need to see the date. Right now it shows 'Nov 7' to 'Nov 1' instead of 'Nov 17'. I prefer viewing this on the computer because this is time consuming to click in to check the date if I want flex dates...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.
