Hipmunk today announced the release of its Hello Hipmunk Bot for Skype, the latest rendition of Hipmunk’s bot to ease travel planning agony on a chat platform.
Users can chat with the Hipmunk on Skype and get travel advice and recommendations instantly. Ask questions like “when is the best time to go to Cancun from Chicago” or “find me the cheapest flight from Los Angeles to Portland” or “show me hotels in Austin, TX from Aug 23rd – 27th”. The Hipmunk is in the know and searches hundreds of sites to find you the best options.
The Hello Hipmunk bot on Skype (which joins other messaging platforms, such as Slack and Facebook Messenger) also works with group chats. This means that users can plan trips with friends and family without ever having to leave the chat room. Once the Hipmunk is added as a member of a chat, any member of the group can ask it travel related questions for instant results!
Hello Hipmunk for Skype is available on desktop, mobile, iOS, and Android apps, enabling our virtual planner to be accessible virtually anywhere.
