New airfare prediction app FareScout takes guesswork out of when to book

November 17, 2014 in Travel (F)

[] Denver, Colorado - Travelers have a new tool in the often agonizing decision of when is the right time to book a flight. FareScout, a new airfare prediction app from FlyinAway Travel Technologies, gives travelers confidence they are buying at the right time to get the best price.

"Deciding when to book a flight is an agonizing process," said Eric Lanier, co-founder and CEO of FlyinAway. "Travelers do not feel like they are in control. Fluctuating fares feel arbitrary and the process is frustrating for travelers. That's why we built FareScout - to give travelers the information they need to feel confident in their decision."

FareScout takes the guesswork out of the decision to book a flight. It searches millions of historical data points to help travelers better understand the likelihood of the fare going up or down, and lets them know when is the best time to maximize savings. FareScout has access to the same historical information that airlines use to build their pricing models and presents users with a simple "buy or wait" format. FareScout also gives users the option to set up alerts that automatically notify users if the price recommendation changes.

"We go beyond just giving you a recommendation," Lanier said. "FareScout keeps working, checking the price every day, so that you don't have to. If the price drops and you can get a better deal, we'll let you know."

FareScout version 1.1 has a new alert feature - users can set up alerts to check for price changes daily and let them know if the price comes down.

* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* Optimized for iPhone 5 and iPhone 6
* 5.0 MB
