Hipmunk does the searching for you

Hipmunk is a meta-search site, which means you’ll see results from major airlines, hotels and other booking sites. So say farewell to the multiple searches. With Hipmunk, you don’t need loads of browser tabs to make sure you’re not missing out on a deal.


Hipmunk makes it easy to find the best option

Hipmunk’s results make it easy to find flights and accommodations that work with your busy schedule and personal travel priorities.

With Hipmunk, transportation results are sorted by agony—taking into account things like flight time, layovers and price to prioritize the best options for you. Hipmunk also clearly displays the available amenities like WiFi, power & USB, and meal service.

Hotel options are uniquely sorted based on location, price, star ratings, reviews, and more and it’s easy to see which options come with the amenities that are important to you—like a gym or parking. You can even add a point of interest directly on the map to find hotels nearby.


Hipmunk shows you a wide variety of choices side-by-side

Your transportation and accommodation options aren’t limited to flights and hotels—and your search results should reflect that. With Hipmunk, you’ll also see homes, private rooms, trains, and charter flights.


Hipmunk lets you choose where to book so you can earn rewards

Once you find the transportation or accommodation option that works best for you, you can choose whether you want to directly on a hotel or airline website, or through another travel site. This way, you can continue to earn rewards points and miles—just like you did before.
