Hipmunk is a remarkable travel search site that aims to take the agony out of travel planning. The goal is to help you book travel faster and more efficiently.
We show you all the relevant flight or hotel results on a single page and make it easy to compare your options. For example, we represent flights in a visual "timeline" that makes it easy to understand the tradeoffs between flights. Hipmunk was designed to help people who are overwhelmed with pages of irrelevant search results.
We know that price isn't the only factor that goes into purchasing a flight. While other sites sort by price, Hipmunk automatically sorts results by "Agony," which is primarily a combination of price, flight duration, and number of stopovers.
Similar to our Agony sort with flight search, we recognize that price isn't the only factor that goes into buying hotels. We sort by "Ecstasy," which is a combination of price, amenities, and reviews.
