Why you need an Airfarewatchdog fare widget on your site.

Fares from Washington DC:

    Especially in these tough economic times, it's more important than ever to save money on airfare. That's where Airfarewatchdog's free airfare widget and RSS feeds come in. Over 40 US Airports now use them on their Web sites to show potential passengers that there are indeed low airfares if you know how to find them.

    And now, we're noticing that hotels and resorts are adding the widget to their web site's home pages. Makes sense: show potential guests low airfares to your local airport(s) and you're more likely to fill up rooms. See how the Marco Island Marriott Resort and Spa is showing guests low fares into Ft. Myers, FL.

    The latest airport to get on the widget bandwagon is Spokane International.

    And if you're running a convention or other meeting, why not show attendees low fares into the convention city? That's what PMA is doing. The Photo Marketing Association is holding its 2009 convention in Las Vegas, so, wisely, they're displaying the widget on their web site. Frankly, we're at a loss to understand why everyone doesn't do this! OK, if you're not using our fares to display, then use one of those other fare listing sites. Oh, right, they don't have Southwest or Allegiant fares, so not such a good idea. But they're beter than nothing!
