We started Airfarewatchdog because we believe finding the best travel deals should be easy and planning travel should be fun. There are always great fares out there, and it’s our goal to bring them to you. We want to help people go on trips that may otherwise not be possible.
Have you scored a great deal with Airfarewatchdog? Where did you go and why? We’ve heard stories from travelers like a couple on opposite coasts able to keep their relationship steady because of the deals they’ve found on Airfarewatchdog. We’ve also had travelers use Airfarewatchdog airfare alerts to find great deals to their home countries, where they were able to discover their roots and heritage. For others, it was just a quick trip to a new city they haven’t been to before.
These are the experiences that Airfarewatchdog enables. These are the stories that keep us going in our mission to make travel attainable.
