September 14, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Dallas, TX September 14, 2007 — Travel+ Leisure Magazine (http://www.travelandleisure.com) recently announced their list of the top 25 travel sites saying "….you have to know where to look—and whom to trust. To help you, Travel + Leisure has assembled the ultimate online guide, from our picks of the top travel Web sites….the places and sources we rely on." Farecompare CEO Rick Seaney tells how he heard the news, "Someone I know brought a copy of Travel+Leisure by to show me that we were named in the top 25 travel websites. I was pleased with the honor, especially since we did not even know that we were being considered. It is gratifying to be recognized for Farecompare's unique Getaway Maps technology."

Travel+Leisure notes the elegant functionally of Farecompare.com's Getaway Maps, "Decide how much you want to spend and when you want to travel, and Getaway Maps will overlay the lowest fares pulled from more than 500 airlines (most of the major U.S. carriers, as well as many international ones) for a select range of cities".

Farecompare is hearing plenty of positive feedback from it's users as well saying the site helps them find the best airfare deals. In spite of the recent air travel cost hikes, users are finding airline ticket bargains using the new email deal alert technology, which is free of charge on FareCompare.com. This technology rapidly processes all raw airfare data, which the company receives directly from the airlines, identifying the best possible airfare deals for the traveler. Farecompare instantaneously emails an alert, based on customized levels set up by the user, when prices drop, hours before other sites send alerts, including the airlines themselves. This makes it possible for Farecompare users to be first in line for those few cheap airline tickets. "However when those good prices occur, its best to be ready to purchase your tickets," encourages Seaney. "If you plan ahead, you will be one of the 10% of air travelers who get the best price on a particular flight."

A Couple Saved $480: "You saved us $240 per ticket. That should cover a couple of nice dinners and a good bottle of wine — don't you think? Thank You!!" Becky W.

A Family Saved Thousands: "I have booked many flights utilizing your site; I know it has saved me and my family literally thousands of dollars in just a short period." Rick R.

$98 Flight To Dream Destination: "My fiancé and I plan to honeymoon on the Bahamas Islands after our wedding … thanks in large measure to tips we gleaned from your emails on when to buy tickets. After all, who can't afford a $98 ticket to a dream destination?" Les M.

Farecompare also saves users time because there is no longer any need to spend hours searching the Internet for an airfare deal. Farecompare.com technology automatically scans for airfare bargains 24/7, including bargins on International & Domestic First Class flights and immediately emails a user when a low airfare price is published.

Other highly respected media outlets have also recently reported on the money saving technology advantages at Farecompare.com . This summer Good Morning America sent CEO Rick, and his laptop to New York's La Guardia International Airport to measure how much Farecompare.com could have saved air travelers on their flights that day. The thriving website and Wall Street Journal have partnered in publishing the popular Weekly Business Travel Index to track the ups and downs in the highly watched business air travel sector. The new highly touted Portfolio magazine recently featured how airline industry stock analysts use Farecompare pricing data to predict stock prices.
