Frustrating
by Zena Magadan on 2021/11/29 21:28
Don’t do business with Kayak ! I booked a flight from Washington to cebu Philippines and the airlines change their schedule so kayak was telling me that the only option is to cancel my flight . So 2 months I have been still waiting my refund . Every time I called they keep telling me that the refund is already on my bank . such a liar and worst customer 😡🤬😡

Why work with shady travel sites?
by noderosa on 2021/11/17 23:35
The app is ok but why would you work with shady sites like GoToGate? Their prices are usually much cheaper than other options, but if you go to their site to buy tickets, the price you saw on kayak are tripled or more OR no longer available. You should exclude results from those shady businesses like Hopper and Google Flights. (To be fair, Skyscanner pulls data from GoToGate as well.) Read reviews of them. Also, your price prediction is terrible.

Downloaded this app to check out some car rentals for an upcoming road trip, but got sidetracked by how responsive and snappy the Kayak app is. I’m in school for computer science so I appreciate good apps when I see them. This app is by far one of the best I’ve ever seen. Please keep doing what you all are doing!
Price always changes at booking
by Hollahead on 2021/11/16 14:02
Lots of great advertised prices from many bum sites. As soon as you get to booking and input payment information, you receive a notification that the fare has expired and increased. Happens within minutes of selecting the fare. Classic bait and switch.
Price Bait and Switch
by takestoolongtomakeareview on 2021/11/15 03:58
The prices you see on rentals that aren’t hotels will always be too good to be true cheap on their app but as soon as you click book they jump up
The best website for flights search
by leotraveller on 2021/11/13 12:38
We are heavy flights travelers - a lot of cruises are waiting for us in 2022. Of course, we’d like to book the best flights possible, and kayak.com perfectly fits our needs. Another great fixture of this site is that it suggests not only the best (price, itinerary, etc.), but also gives you prediction, for example: “WAIT” that means that we might find even better prices in the following week... We strongly recommend this site to all travelers!

Used to be my go to
by Will5925 on 2021/11/06 18:42
I travel for work. Extensively. I am typically given per diem and want to stay somewhere that’s a good deal. Kayak was my go to for a long time. Showed reviews and lowest ossicle prices. For a while now the prices displayed are not correct. Once you try to proceed with the booking it says “the price is no longer available”. Look a couple hours later and it’s the same thing for the same price. I believe they have resorted to bait and switch tactics. Shame.
Price Prediction feature is hilariously wrong
by Princeton P on 2021/11/06 17:39
Your common sense is likely much more accurate than Kayak’s price prediction feature. It has let me down twice in the past year. The algorithm needs a lot of work, it seems.
Companies recommended are terrible.
by Jaime21 on 2021/11/05 20:19
I used to use kayak a lot. Recently they recommended a hotel company “Traveluro” I tired to book a hotel. I got a “error” message twice. I never received a confirmation or email so I assumed it didn’t book the hotel. I had to use another app to book. Well, I check my account and I had been charged TWICE with no confirmation number. Then I get a confirmation number 20 hours later! I get refused for one night but it’s been a nightmare trying to get my money back. I even called the hotel directly to explain and they said all Traveluro had to do was calll to cancel and they would approve. Traveluro has been giving me the runaround for 3 days!! Beware!!
Misleading Amenities Information
by Kristin A B on 2021/11/04 05:54
The booking on Kayak stated the hotel allowed pets on request but failed to mention the hotel only allows service animals and is otherwise not pet friendly. I didn’t see anything through Kayak or the deal that said anything about only service animals. I ended up booking a nonrefundable room through Booking.com via Kayak and didn’t think I had to recheck the hotel policies on Booking.com or the hotel’s website. Kayak should have accurate info right?So the hotel wouldn’t make any exceptions and I doubt they’ll waive the cancellation fee and now I’ve wasted over $100 and might pay over $100 more for canceling for the chance of a refund via Booking.com. Very disappointed that I now have to inconveniently take the extra step in the future to check each hotel I book, before I book, about their pet policy if I use Kayak. Won’t use Kayak again.
Terrible prices
by banayaor on 2021/11/04 05:33
I wanna get a flight for cheap, and all this is showing are expensive flights. They have no consideration for the poor who cannot be posting thousands of dollars for travel. Honestly this is discrimination. They only want to let the rich travel and see their families. UNFAIR

Flight grid is awesome
by Travel Abroad 007 on 2021/10/22 16:44
I’ve used Kayak for many years, starting with the website. Best thing about it is the ability to indicate the exact date you want to fly, with the option to show up to 3 days + or - that date. The results are shown in a grid with the highest and lowest prices indicated. So when you don’t have an exact date in mind you’ve got a meta-search result at your fingertips.

More reliable gate notifications than the airlines apps
by Digikata on 2021/09/26 18:51
Kayak has been a great travel booking site, but i also use it for managing my travel itineraries for work trips too. I find that when the trip info is in Kayak the notifications of gate changes is faster and more accurate than the airline apps themselves. And you get a consistent interface no matter what airline you’re on.
Just started let’s see how this relationship plays out
by harveytdog on 2021/09/26 15:21

False advertising hotel rates
by G-$tatu$ on 2021/09/07 02:58
It’s honestly shocking that is it is even legal for this app to advertise false hotel rates the way they do. They offered a hotel room for 99 and then charged us 236 plus a 50 deposit on the room. If I was a class action litigation attorney I’d be licking my chops to take down these thieves.

NEVER AGAIN
by Ames0h on 2021/08/26 06:48
I would never ever book a trip from Kayak again. The worst experience by far. Nobody to contact about a booking. Nobody contacts you back when sending an email. Nobody answer the phone from the number thats provided. Like it’s the worse. I seriously regret booking my trip with them. It’s been almost a month and I still can’t get a hold of anyone. Please book your trip directly through whatever airline you choose to fly don’t book through here or any 3rd party.

Shows rooms when none available
by FatCity42 on 2021/08/07 01:01
I previously used the app exclusively and was awesome. The last 3 road trips have been a night mare. It consistently shows hotels with no availability. I have walked in to the front desk only to be turned away. I tell them the app says there is rooms. They tell me if I reserved through the app there would be no room. My latest trip has been a family road trip. It works ok during the week but the weekend it is useless. You may as well drive door to door to each hotel and ask for a room. That is only slightly less effective than this app.

I’m so frustrated. I’m researching where to stay and on kayak it lists one price, example $213/ night, then you click to book it and it brings you to VRBO site and its $425/night. It happened with several properties that I was interested in. Please correct in your end. You’re wasting people’s time.

Perfect app for travel planning
by mwibbs on 2021/06/28 00:50
Great way to compare multiple dates (using +/- 1 or 2 days), airlines, flights, even destinations (nearby airports), even hotel and car rental all at the same time to help make an informed decision. The app even makes recommendations to wait or buy tickets now depending on the pricing trend. I only wish it included Southwest as an airline but it has almost all the others.
Price Gougers - Total scam
by Angelo Tanu on 2021/06/26 20:58
Bought two [2] tickets from Tampa to Vegas. Listed for roughly 260. After a few options chosen with many deferred ended up with a total of around 750. Which at the very last minute when we are literally in the process of running my card, they jacked it up $140 for a total of $890. An illegal business practice, masquerading under the guise of necessity in which it based its strong arming tactic which pivots off the people’s needs. I hope this business practice burns with all participants a piece of tinder in this crooked practice. Be aware.

Bad search results
by Gallaghedj311 on 2021/06/15 21:51
Trying to book a flight from Philly to Key West and there are 5 flights with a layover in Atlanta and they are all priced at $179. None of these links work! They all take me to Delta Airlines website where these same flights are listed at $461. Very disappointed in kayak. Believing I had so many options really screwed me up. Guess I’ll use Travelocity next time
Different advice on app vs browser
by mmw226 on 2021/06/15 17:12
I normally use the Kayak app watching the ADVICE feature that tells you if you should WAIT or BUY NOW. I have been watching a trip for the past few weeks and the app says WAIT. today I happened to check it on via your website and it said BUY NOW. So I did the same search on the app and it still says WAIT. This is an issue for me as I tend to only use your app. Why is the advice different ?
What does HAND LUGGAGE mean?
by FogCityNative on 2021/06/14 15:56
What exactly does HAND LUGGAGE mean? To some airlines hand luggage means an under seat personal item and conforming carry on bags cost extra. Viva Air will sometimes gives away checked baggage (which costs them money in labor to load and unload) but always charges for a bag in the overhead bin just to screw their flyers. American and Copa only charge for checked bags. Southwest doesn’t charge for a checked bag. Then the rules are complicated by if the flight is domestic or international. I did not buy a well priced flight because KAYAK used the undefined term HAND LUGGAGE. One star, sorry. That failure to define terms cancelled all other stars. Fix it and I’d give 5 stars. Imagine if hotels were priced like airline tickets. Want bedding on your mattress? Extra. Want a pillow? Extra. Need a second key? Extra. Toilet paper? Extra. Towels? Extra. In room locker? Extra. The airlines have made flying a miserable experience. KAYAK: Define Hand Luggage exactly for every airline and flight.

A joy to use
by RedXIII_ on 2018/06/15 03:12
Kayak has been a fantastic company to use for anything travel! & has continued to impress me with their fun and very easy to use features. Airline companies often set standard pricing for their flights and the caveat that the normal person is looking for it matching all these flights with their specific needs i.e. layover timeline, # of bags, airline make/model, & flight times. A ‘Good Deal’ is a very generalized term and many other apps use that as their main means of persuasion when in fact it’s clear that sites like Kayak are so good at categorizing exactly what meets your needs and alining airliners to your schedule, like advertised they have a multitude of tools like bag number and layover timeline settings with a accurate representation of what the cost will be regardless if it is two separate companies. If you choose a flight selection that has a 2 hour layover for one airliner and you select ‘book’ the airliners website which it directs you to within the app has that selection already selected. I could go on and on about how easy and secure this app is to use so please give it a try.
I love this app
by H3110 101 on 2019/03/05 01:19
I got this app for one plane flight, simple as that. I was planning on deleting it right after because I thought I had no use for it. But then I started to realize that any trips I was planning on taking would show up on this app and would be organized by time and date (because I connected my email). I’m planning on taking an Amtrak to the airport and then back again & accidentally chose the wrong date for the train back, and because Kayak organizes the trips so well, I was able to catch that but if not for this app, that would have been $20 down the bin & a missed class. I honestly love this app because there are no annoying adds that pop up when I’m trying to figure my plans out & it helps me organize everything so well. It also works offline when I’m looking at my already planned trips which will help out a lot when I’m abroad. I don’t use the search tool within the app for hotels cars or flights, but they have that option as well.
Update!
by Kwalter11 on 2019/02/05 04:01
This is such a good app so much better than Trip It or any of the other travel apps. But I really wish there was a way to automatically add the same passengers to different flights. So you don't have to add the same info for the same passenger over and over again. Also I wish that after you have put in a passenger/travellers info including their ticket number and seat number it would load mobile boarding passes onto the app for that flight. Or you could import mobile boarding passes. Keep up the good work Kayak. If you add these suggestions it will be 6 stars. P.S. I also wish you could change the profile of the travelers. P.P.S. Could you please add more games to do offline on your flight like: Sudoku, Crossword Puzzles,Tic Tac Toe, Hangman, Etc... -#1 fan
Great Site
by A1y2a3n4a5 on 2018/03/17 15:10
I've been using Kayak to book my flights for about 2 years now. I like them. Only thing that would make it better was if you could filter what types of flights you wanted for alert emails. I have two kids I'm flighting with this time and even though my last two flights basic economy was a great option because I'm not particular about where I sit, this time around I need to ensure my boys are beside me. I get really excited to see a price in a email just to see it's basic economy and the regular economy tickets are like $40 more. $40 difference is a lot when you need 3 of them. Another great improvement would be being able to mix and match the flight there and the flight back. Since we're going to New York to visit my fiancé I want a really early flight to get there and a late afternoon to come back. Sometimes they add up like that but usually they don't. I could book them separate but it would be a lot easier if they could just be chosen like that. Those are my only complaints. Still like and will use the site.
Great except for one thing
by Maddie1975 on 2018/06/11 07:36
The app is amazing. It is beautifully designed and works amazing. I only have one problem with it. It won’t let you search for a “youth’s” flight with no adult. Anyone above 12 is allowed to fly by themselves. They have a “youth” listed as a person between 12-17, whereas a “child” is 2-11. It would seem that they have this separated for the purpose of allowing someone to look at prices for just a youth; However, even when the youth ticket is added, when you try and delete the adult ticket selected on default, it will tell you that there must be one adult traveling. This makes it harder for me because different airlines charge different fees for unaccompanied minors, especially the ones that charge for the unaccompanied minor service no matter their age. As I am trying to book a flight for 2 teenagers, this is necessary for me. Disregarding that, the app is the most user friendly and easy to use booking apps I’ve seen.
Beware of “trips” portion of App
by NOK1033 on 2018/04/23 19:55
I have used kayak for a long time but recently had a very terrible experience and will not be booking flights through kayak anymore. Beware of the “trips” portion of the app. I bought a flight through kayak and it was added to my trips. There were changes to my flight, but my trips still reflected the original times, even though I used kayak to purchase my flights. Long story short I ended up missing my flight and paying lots of money in change fees. It’s odd to me that the company automatically lists the flight you purchased through their company under “trips” but do not update the flight information if an airline changes flight times. Even when I missed my actual flight my app still said “4 hours 27 minutes until take off”. Super unfortunate end to a trip, but learned my lesson to never book with kayak again. Also, when trying to sort and talk through this issue, I was unable to speak with anyone from kayak. The closest contact to a human you can get is through an email.
Worst experience ever spend over a thousand because of this company
by eddie laso on 2019/03/29 20:53
I normally use them for any vacation I go on but I missed my flight on Saturday in lax going to Charlotte NC and when I got to the airport they said only see one ticket from Washington to Charlotte and could not see any other tickets so we had to purchase new tickets on top of this from some where else but kayak charged my bank account and reaching them was impossible because it was an computer speaking for them I left my number and still have not received a call back from them if it was not for my bank I would not have receive a refund so if you do not care to speak to actual customer service reps then use it
Love KAYAK
by Colonel Brian M on 2018/11/24 11:47
As a retired military officer I’m entitled to “Space Available” flights on military aircraft. For the past five years I’ve taken advantage of this to fly from Travis AFB in California, through Yokota AFB in Japan to my final destination in Singapore. That’s when I start using KAYAK to investigate and book flights throughout South East Asia. Using KAYAK I’ve been able to comfortably book flights to Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and the Philippines. I also use KAYAK to get me to and from Orlando to Sacramento to start and finish the free portion of my travel from California. I’ve tried other travel sites and always return to KAYAK. I particularly like the feature allowing me to check the day before and after a travel date to get the cheapest flight. I don’t know how we’ll KAYAK works in other parts of the world, but where I travel it’s clearly the best.
Website is great. App not so much.
by Ericwood86 on 2020/03/11 22:33
We’re planning a wedding. The app, despite specifying dates without the option of plus/minus one day, it’s just factored in without making it clear that they have done that. You have to be smart enough to check dates, for day scouting out a destination wedding venue. Which sounds stupid since dates are obvious. But you give us a cocktease of flights extremely by one day off from correct travel plans and it’s not until we double check that we are disappointed. Appreciate all that you do, but you need to do better. On your website it’s quite clear if you’re adding a day either direction. On your app you just do it and don’t let us know. You have to assume we are stupid and won’t double check until the point we book. Bc that’s what most of us are. Stupid.
UPDATE: Bring back watchlist
by Clean app on 2019/11/05 06:14
UPDATE: so for some reason they buried the watchlist feature in settings. Not a great move. But it’s still around. Still a great app overall. Bring back watchlist please. One of the only reasons I had the app. Seems I’m not alone in that sentiment. I’m sure kayak has an algorithm to not fix this problem unless their Apple rating goes below a certain point. My guess is the airlines asked them to remove the feature. Also annoyed you can’t search in explore with the option to search by amount of time for a trip either. Also seems like something the airlines wouldn’t want them to offer. Maybe I’m wrong and this will get fixed tomorrow!
Kayak’s trip info is excellent
by YuTube2U on 2018/01/26 06:54
I LOVE this app. Yeah, it does a great job finding flights, cars and hotels but it’s real gem, the thing that makes this The Travel App is how it helps organize your trip. Everything neatly organized, in order. You can simply send your booking receipts to an email address and it organizes everything for you in one neat place. You can even pull up the booking receipt in the app, even if not generated by Kayak. There’s a cool way to show your taxi driver the address in a way that she doesn’t need to use reading glasses. One click and it’ll give you directions on your choice of Waze, google maps or Apple maps. This app Gets it Right. Way to go guys!!
Not always updated or working
by H2018A on 2018/09/23 18:19
It seems your recommendation for price change is not always appearing. Sometimes it recommends to wait as the prices will drop and sometimes does not show up at all. Then you want to follow it, but even the next day it does not tell anything, it makes it confusing to decide on waiting or buying the ticket at that time or still continue waiting as was suggested a day before. You buy the ticket due to uncertainty of the idea that in fact prices are still going up in those two days then after a week it starts showing up to wait again as the prices will drop. This is not costumer friendly. It is valuable to have such option for following, but if not consistent it becomes tricky.
Kayak + Skyscanner: Bait and switching now...
by HerFuzziness on 2019/05/25 19:19
Posted the same bad review for Skyscanner too: A few years ago, I stopped using Momondo because it would advertise flights for one price, THEN raise the price AFTER you input your credit card information. Kayak (and Skyscanner) isn't that bad, but for the last month, every time I've checked a price for the EXACT same flight for the EXACT same date, it advertises the same "bait" price, then after clicking on the adjacent link, the price doubles, then triples. Not sure why you'd advertise a one-way flight for $254 FOR A MONTH, but then increase it to $720. Shouldn't you stop the BS bait price on the umpteenth search? Should I blame the cookies? And you must realize that customers can actually search a plane's seat availability, so the claim that the seats are limited is tired, not just dishonest. So, way to go, Kayak. You're just as useless as Momondo and Skyscanner now.
Works but it’s a little sketchy
by .jay on 2018/10/31 18:30
So I realized after buying tickets through Kayak that Kayak is basically a curator for a bunch of possibly sketchy online travel agencies. Some data doesn’t get transferred over properly, your “My Trips” tab doesn’t always reflect what’s actually going on with your trip, and they completely absolve themselves from all responsibly once you buy tickets from whoever they linked you to. It’s not immediately clear who you’re dealing with unless you’re looking for it, because everything is still wrapped in Kayak’s branding and chrome. Hopefully, I won’t get screwed over by the company I bought tickets from. But I don’t feel good about my experience using Kayak as a service and will refrain from using it again, regardless of how my trip turns out. I’ll come back in a few months to update my review to reflect the end result.
Cancelon Travel Bookings via TripAdvisor Not Good
by Plinkos on 2020/03/17 23:52
Cancelon by TripAdvisor is a fraudulent service and should be removed from Kayak Service offerings. Please, please, please remove them. They give customers the run around and keep their money. We are in the mist of the COVID-19 virus outbreak and our trip to Italy is not possible and they are making it super difficult to get our money back. We even have emails from the hotel in Italy stating they would cancel and not charge anything to the booking company “Cancelon” which contradicts what they emailed us stating the the hotel refused. So, Kayak, please shut TripAdvisor and Cancelon off from your service offerings. Thank you, A huge fan of Kayak
Great app, can improve
by SriniVR on 2017/11/01 00:58
Kayak is a great app, and I really like the explore feature. I have found great deals using this feature. With the explore feature you can set the filters to narrow down by month and $ amounts. However, once you select a destination to look at actual flights, and then try to go back see other flight destinations - you cannot...the search results are lost and you have to start over the search and reapply the filters, making it frustrating. Wish there was a way to go back to the explore search results with the applied filters.
Ok for searching flights
by 2man73 on 2017/10/31 20:35
Using this to compare flights. Works ok if you know how to work around the issues. Airlines are smartening up and for example offer very reasonable prices until you discover that your first checked bag, your hand luggage, your meal and who knows what else all cost extra, so to really compare apples to apples gets harder and harder. Also, what I don’t like are the constant nagging to register and constant app updates that seem to bring no new functionality (and it’s fine, if it does what it needs to do I don’t need an update - but it seems like I’ll be able to price compare my baggage cart, coffee, travel literature and parking garage soon once the developers run out of ideas) and just seem to be done to remind people to use the app.
Best Travel App Period!
by F&MC on 2020/10/16 13:59
There are multiple travel apps out there, but the more I travel, both domestically and internationally, the more I rely on Kayak. The app is so user friendly and one of my favorite features is the ability to set up a price watch for future trips, not just for airline tickets, but also for hotels. So if you’re a planner like me, the assistance of Kayak and their ability to notify you when there is a price drop is a significant help! Clear the clutter in your life and get rid of all the other (lesser) travel apps! All you need is Kayak!
Could do a lot more and a good feature does not work.
by Pakitt on 2020/01/23 01:05
I use Kayak very often to track prices and find the best connections. The “See cheapest dates” function doesn’t work though. If a price is listed for a specific set of days, when you click on it the resulting search is markedly more expensive. Pity it would be an excellent function, but it doesn’t reflect reality and doesn’t show updated/current information. Another issue I have is that you cannot specify different cabin classes for different multi-leg trips. I’d like to able to set e.g. premium economy for long haul flights, and economy for shorter ones. Instead the class is applied inflexibly to all legs of a trip.
Disappointed
by Lovesimpsonsqer on 2020/05/16 23:04
Hello I am wondering why you falsely advertise the booking price? The flight prices you show make sure to let you know that fees and taxes included and if taxes are applied then it had to be based on a fixed “deal”. I just tried booking a flight today and the price with “fees and taxes included” so I clicked view deal and it just took me to the airlines actual website asking me to enter all the flight details. I though that might be an error so I tried again. This time it did show the flight but now the price which originally said $497 now shows $1,239. This seems pretty shady on your part since you clearly are compensated from the airline when their fights are booked through you and then you basically advertise click bate and wastes people’s time. Thanks for nothing.
Why Kayak is the greatest must have travel app
by Kmass81 on 2019/02/22 16:18
Today on southwest at 4am my flight was cancelled. No email from southwest, no call, no text. Without kayak I wouldn’t have known about this cancellation until arriving at the airport. Upon immediate notification of the cancellation kayak emailed me saying your flight has been cancelled this is your confirmation number here is southwests number to contact them etc etc. i never take the time to write reviews but this is by far the most pivotal program that kayak can have. Alerts before the actual companies you pay alert you.
worst customer service ever
by andychinn on 2019/05/07 15:55
I booked a hotel through Kayak and when I got to the hotel, they didn’t have my reservation. Kayak told me to book the room as a walk in and then the rate will be replaced in the morning with a call to Kayak. I’ve been on the phone for over 45min with them and they completely contradicted what they told me the previous day. I had to jump through many hoops and the operators I talked to were terrible, contradicted each other, and in the end, were extremely pushy into talking me into not cancelling my reservation, which is giving me a headache. One of the absolute worst customer service experiences I’ve ever had, and it’s still unresolved. I had to pay for my hotel room twice in the end! I cannot recommend this app. Use Expedia instead.
Terriable when you want to change flight schedule
by chjihfddfgh on 2019/12/28 17:51
Wanted to change flight schedule. First the agent told the change is done, and they charged my card for the change fee. But never receive any confirmation. After I called back a few days, they told me the booking is not successful, I asked why there’s no notification for that, they told me they don’t send any notification, I should call back to find out. What?! Then I have to make another change for my flight. And this time, their agent made another mistake, instead of change both of the passengers tickets, they change only one! The agent told me that they can not do anything now, but their manager will call me back, but I never receive any call. Will never use them again.
Horrible first experience
by JR1992x on 2019/06/22 21:21
I decided to rent through kayak and reserved a car for 4pm and paid the booking fee ($18). I arrive to the location only to find they were closed. Why would you allow me to rent a car and take my money if the location is closed? The employee inside comes out and tells me to use the airport location. Fine. I rebook another vehicle for the airport location and pay the booking fee again. They gladly accepted my money online but when I arrive to the airport I’m told I can only use a credit card. (I use debit) I’m not entirely familiar with renting vehicles, but it’s completely BS that you guys would allow me to book under these circumstances. I’m in the process of getting my money back but I can for sure say I won’t use this again.
The best travel mobile app I’ve ever used
by Torrance Carroll on 2020/01/19 22:13
I’ve been using Kayak for multi-flight and hotel search, Kayak explore, Kayak Trips and stats for the last 4 years. It’s consistently been the best mobile app for travel I ever used, with an incredibly clean and lean user interface, works great on flight mode, provides relevant notifications and updates regarding flight updates, and helps track travel itineraries for groups. The improvements Kayak has made of the years has consistently improved the user experience with useful and intuitive new features without ever going overboard with feature-creeping. Kayak is the number one travel app I recommend to anyone considering looking for a tool to book and manage multiple flights. Thank you to the team at Kayak and Booking for the incredible work and dedication to great mobile software craftsmanship!
And I thought it was just for booking flights!?!
by debdebtig on 2018/06/07 11:54
Recently went on a cross country trip and found that Kayak was more helpful than even the airline app. It tells you how long you can expect to take through security. And more importantly, how long it will take to get to the next get when you change flights. It has been spot on! You can also checkin from Kayak. The reminders have been a huge help. They almost seem to get flight updates BEFORE the airline app!
Please improve the watchlist
by doxzero on 2018/08/10 21:14
It’s a great app I use a lot, but it would be nice to have additional parameters in the watch list like a range of trip duration. A lot of times the chap flights being suggested are just not long enough and I would prefer to be able to just set the parameter to however many days max/min range I’m interested in to filter out the noise. Maybe that’s the answer, just allow day range as a filter option. Excellent work. I really enjoy and often use what you folks have created and I hope you will let your whole team know that.
Companies recommended are terrible.
by Jaime21 on 2021/11/05 20:19
I used to use kayak a lot. Recently they recommended a hotel company “Traveluro” I tired to book a hotel. I got a “error” message twice. I never received a confirmation or email so I assumed it didn’t book the hotel. I had to use another app to book. Well, I check my account and I had been charged TWICE with no confirmation number. Then I get a confirmation number 20 hours later! I get refused for one night but it’s been a nightmare trying to get my money back. I even called the hotel directly to explain and they said all Traveluro had to do was calll to cancel and they would approve. Traveluro has been giving me the runaround for 3 days!! Beware!!
Fraudulent!!!!
by DrDealio on 2020/10/20 12:55
You should validate every leg your buying from here directly with the airline to see if it even exists, prior to purchasing it. Many flights do-not exist!!! If you wait until after you purchase to find out, you will be stuck at the airport. Plus basically stuck with the bill. Good luck getting your money back!! The leading excuse you will get is passing the blame to the airline when in fact that is not true at all! (i.e. cancellation, etc.) Kayak does not accept responsibility for screwing you over when they KNOW there is a problem. The “get your money back” is deceptive! How valuable is your time? If you like being stranded, frustrated and angry at the airport... Go for it!
Stop asking me to turn on notifications
by khad on 2019/06/10 00:25
I already declined your prompt to turn on notifications. I don’t want notifications. Repeatedly asking every time I open the app is annoying and comes across as desperate. Just stop. UPDATE: In response to the developer’s suggestion to check my watchlist, there is nothing in my watchlist. That’s not what I’m referring to. When you open the app, it asks you to turn on system-level access to notifications. I don’t ever want to do that. Yet every time I open the app, I am still asked to turn on notifications. “No” means “no”. It does not mean “ask again next time I open the app and every single time I open the app forever”.
Inconsistent and wrong information on flight prices
by Ategworld on 2017/11/24 07:42
Lately I have tried to book flights on Kayak only to find out the prices quotes provided were much higher when I was about to finalize my purchases. This happened multiple times and cost me a lot of work and last minute changes to purchase tickets from other sites/travel agents. If I can’t trust the price quotes provided, the. What good is this app for. Sorry for the bad review but this is my recent experience.
BEWARE!
by JY237 on 2017/11/20 19:56
Up to this point, I have book many of hotels and flights with no issue. kayak has been my go to app for booking trips. BEWARE of a Kayak partner Vayama. When making flight, Kayak forwards you to a partner travel site for booking. On Kayak, flights are advertised as one level, ie economy class, which includes check-in luggage, but after purchased the ticket are downgraded to lesser class with no check-in luggage. Before booking, I went to airlines site to verify what was included in the economy class. I called the partner and the agents yelled at me. FALSE ADVERTISEMENT! I would recommend for all to check better business bureau. I wish had checked before wasting my money with them.
I love using kayak
by Herbicles on 2017/10/01 06:39
I am an avid traveler of the globe. I only use kayak for plane tix, but I love the way it is set up and the idea behind it to begin with. I especially like the forecasted wait or buy label they added at the top. The only thing I wish they would add is the ability to enter a specific date range without a destination. There is a whole subculture of peeps who just want to travel on a budget, regardless of where. LonelyPlanet+ Hostelworld make their living off this type of traveler.
Terrible user interface
by DragonBlue on 2018/02/24 01:53
Kayak app used to have much better user interface, this version is just terrible! 1. When selecting flexible dates flight options are displayed as a list, instead of table. Who wants to go through the list of hundreds of flights ... one needs to see table w dates first 2. Starting page in app - minimalism but reduced functionality. One has to click/tap on various menus etc .. and at the end one can not see what options are selected .. eg. flexible (+/- days) dates, biz vs economy ... alternative airport ... nothing is visible Summary, this app lost its value when interface was changed. I still use kayak but only on my laptop
Flight grid is awesome
by Travel Abroad 007 on 2021/10/22 16:44
I’ve used Kayak for many years, starting with the website. Best thing about it is the ability to indicate the exact date you want to fly, with the option to show up to 3 days + or - that date. The results are shown in a grid with the highest and lowest prices indicated. So when you don’t have an exact date in mind you’ve got a meta-search result at your fingertips.
Beware of companies included in search
by yogibear5650 on 2021/04/21 22:07
I am disappointed kayak includes car rental from the Latvia company Discover Cars as they are not honest. From kayaks website, I booked and prepaid from Discover Cars a car that I could cancel 3 days before pickup. I cancelled 2 days after booking when plans changed and was informed they could only issue future travel voucher — not my money. I checked my credit card and they had placed 2 pending rental charges on my card for the same car. I contacted Discover Cars and they credited one pending charge and offered future travel voucher for approx same amount as my 2nd pending charge (that should not have been made in the beginning). They refuse to acknowledge this 2nd charge tho I have sent them 2 pics of the pending charges from credit card statement. Only wish I had read reviews before booking with Discover cars as web is full of similar complaints. However, I trusted kayak and assumed they checked out companies they represented. Never again!!!
Missing Obvious Flights for No Apparent Reason
by PerfectTimingNV on 2018/05/25 05:21
This is unacceptable: it’s completely missing certain flights. For example, checked for nonstop flights from PDX to LAS on May 27th -it completely omitted three flights from Alaska Airlines. But, it showed one Alaskan flight that involved a transfer. And no, the directs were not sold out, not even close. I tripled-checked that there weren’t any parameter issues. I’ve suspected this in the past while searching for flights, but didn’t have this confirmation. This is literally the most important thing about a flight booking website -to show all options -and it failed. App deleted.
What does HAND LUGGAGE mean?
by FogCityNative on 2021/06/14 15:56
What exactly does HAND LUGGAGE mean? To some airlines hand luggage means an under seat personal item and conforming carry on bags cost extra. Viva Air will sometimes gives away checked baggage (which costs them money in labor to load and unload) but always charges for a bag in the overhead bin just to screw their flyers. American and Copa only charge for checked bags. Southwest doesn’t charge for a checked bag. Then the rules are complicated by if the flight is domestic or international. I did not buy a well priced flight because KAYAK used the undefined term HAND LUGGAGE. One star, sorry. That failure to define terms cancelled all other stars. Fix it and I’d give 5 stars. Imagine if hotels were priced like airline tickets. Want bedding on your mattress? Extra. Want a pillow? Extra. Need a second key? Extra. Toilet paper? Extra. Towels? Extra. In room locker? Extra. The airlines have made flying a miserable experience. KAYAK: Define Hand Luggage exactly for every airline and flight.
Gets the job done... must of the time.
by User 74 on 2018/09/10 16:27
The app gets it right... must of the time. However, there are some bugs and “fine prints” in this app that can make your travel interesting experience a bit more complicated than you wish. Maybe the app should have embedded warnings letting you know about possible situations you may encounter due to how fluid airline rules and regulations are. Also, based on the region you traveling, suggestions and warnings.
More Than Other Apps
by TessieTrueblue on 2019/08/20 12:05
I have used every travel app out there and this one is my favorite. It eliminates the need to check the others because it does that for you, in addition to researching special rates the hotel has. That’s how I found a great price for the hotel I’m staying in right now. Clean and classic accommodations for a bargain. That’s what I use travel apps for and what Kyack delivers. I will keep on depending on it. 5 stars.
Great App
by Awesome music streaming app on 2019/02/08 02:37
This app is awesome. I prefer the interface and filters to all of the other sites and the fact that they also search the other sites to find the best deal is brilliant. However I'm pretty sure that they used to have a feature that allowed me to search for flights a few days back and a few days forward from a specified date and now I can't find that feature. That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
More reliable gate notifications than the airlines apps
by Digikata on 2021/09/26 18:51
Kayak has been a great travel booking site, but i also use it for managing my travel itineraries for work trips too. I find that when the trip info is in Kayak the notifications of gate changes is faster and more accurate than the airline apps themselves. And you get a consistent interface no matter what airline you’re on.
Best of the best
by alejandra1814 on 2018/10/17 19:04
This app is my one and only go to app for travel. I love the feature that syncs your email reservations with the app because it will display your whole trip in a very organized manner, even if you book something outside of kayak. Although, I recommend using Kayak for bookings, they always have lowest prices. I just love this app so much. For someone that likes to keep things organized, and all in one place, this is the app for you.
Perfect app for travel planning
by mwibbs on 2021/06/28 00:50
Great way to compare multiple dates (using +/- 1 or 2 days), airlines, flights, even destinations (nearby airports), even hotel and car rental all at the same time to help make an informed decision. The app even makes recommendations to wait or buy tickets now depending on the pricing trend. I only wish it included Southwest as an airline but it has almost all the others.
Flight canceled without notification
by chiadmi k on 2021/03/16 12:41
Very bad communication, my flight was cancelled on the 02/26 and was never notified by kayak . By chance one of my friend that was traveling with me called me the night before to tell me . I had to change my ticket with the airline to have a departure from NY instead of IAD . I had to purchase on my own a ticket from IAD to NY plus the luggage. After complaining to the airline they told me that they informed kayak on the 02/26 . I could had go to the airport and had nobody there . If I could give a 0 rating I will . It cost me an additional 450$ which should be reimbursed to me . I definitely won’t recommend kayak to anybody .
Exactly what I wanted
by Madkitteh on 2019/12/23 05:29
This is the best app known to mankind. The interactive map feature that shows you the flight prices for anywhere in the world is exactly what I needed. And then being able to click on a specific airport and sort what time of year it’s cheapest to fly to that destination is great. Pure genius. Thank you app developers for providing an excellent example of what the human brain can do
My go to
by Martha Twain on 2018/11/26 07:39
I use a lot of discount sites and kayak usually has their price meet or beat. Can be a bit frustrating using the watch list feature as it often isn’t accurate when you actually try to book-still a big time and money saver. I recommend it often to friends, acquaintances, and coworkers. Experiences last and things don’t, everyone should travel more.
Easy and informative
by CritterGuardian on 2017/11/14 22:23
Kayak has been my default travel biking source for years. I use it for flights and hotels but have not yet used it to book a car. Easy to use, competitive pricing in search results. I like the notifications for flight delays. When my flights have been delayed Kayak had the update but the airlines app did not update to reflect the delays. Useful, helpful, and recommended.
Great App!
by Gamma tee on 2020/05/30 15:50
I thoroughly love using this app. Not only can you compare prices of travel choices regarding hotels, rental cars and airfare it also records all records regarding each trip taken. I love to look back on my past travel details from time to time. What I would like to see added is cruise, rail and any group travel info that is taken. Highly recommend all to use this app!

Frustrating
by Zena Magadan on 2021/11/29 21:28
Don’t do business with Kayak ! I booked a flight from Washington to cebu Philippines and the airlines change their schedule so kayak was telling me that the only option is to cancel my flight . So 2 months I have been still waiting my refund . Every time I called they keep telling me that the refund is already on my bank . such a liar and worst customer 😡🤬😡

Why work with shady travel sites?
by noderosa on 2021/11/17 23:35
The app is ok but why would you work with shady sites like GoToGate? Their prices are usually much cheaper than other options, but if you go to their site to buy tickets, the price you saw on kayak are tripled or more OR no longer available. You should exclude results from those shady businesses like Hopper and Google Flights. (To be fair, Skyscanner pulls data from GoToGate as well.) Read reviews of them. Also, your price prediction is terrible.

Downloaded this app to check out some car rentals for an upcoming road trip, but got sidetracked by how responsive and snappy the Kayak app is. I’m in school for computer science so I appreciate good apps when I see them. This app is by far one of the best I’ve ever seen. Please keep doing what you all are doing!
Price always changes at booking
by Hollahead on 2021/11/16 14:02
Lots of great advertised prices from many bum sites. As soon as you get to booking and input payment information, you receive a notification that the fare has expired and increased. Happens within minutes of selecting the fare. Classic bait and switch.
Price Bait and Switch
by takestoolongtomakeareview on 2021/11/15 03:58
The prices you see on rentals that aren’t hotels will always be too good to be true cheap on their app but as soon as you click book they jump up
The best website for flights search
by leotraveller on 2021/11/13 12:38
We are heavy flights travelers - a lot of cruises are waiting for us in 2022. Of course, we’d like to book the best flights possible, and kayak.com perfectly fits our needs. Another great fixture of this site is that it suggests not only the best (price, itinerary, etc.), but also gives you prediction, for example: “WAIT” that means that we might find even better prices in the following week... We strongly recommend this site to all travelers!

Used to be my go to
by Will5925 on 2021/11/06 18:42
I travel for work. Extensively. I am typically given per diem and want to stay somewhere that’s a good deal. Kayak was my go to for a long time. Showed reviews and lowest ossicle prices. For a while now the prices displayed are not correct. Once you try to proceed with the booking it says “the price is no longer available”. Look a couple hours later and it’s the same thing for the same price. I believe they have resorted to bait and switch tactics. Shame.
Price Prediction feature is hilariously wrong
by Princeton P on 2021/11/06 17:39
Your common sense is likely much more accurate than Kayak’s price prediction feature. It has let me down twice in the past year. The algorithm needs a lot of work, it seems.
Companies recommended are terrible.
by Jaime21 on 2021/11/05 20:19
I used to use kayak a lot. Recently they recommended a hotel company “Traveluro” I tired to book a hotel. I got a “error” message twice. I never received a confirmation or email so I assumed it didn’t book the hotel. I had to use another app to book. Well, I check my account and I had been charged TWICE with no confirmation number. Then I get a confirmation number 20 hours later! I get refused for one night but it’s been a nightmare trying to get my money back. I even called the hotel directly to explain and they said all Traveluro had to do was calll to cancel and they would approve. Traveluro has been giving me the runaround for 3 days!! Beware!!
Misleading Amenities Information
by Kristin A B on 2021/11/04 05:54
The booking on Kayak stated the hotel allowed pets on request but failed to mention the hotel only allows service animals and is otherwise not pet friendly. I didn’t see anything through Kayak or the deal that said anything about only service animals. I ended up booking a nonrefundable room through Booking.com via Kayak and didn’t think I had to recheck the hotel policies on Booking.com or the hotel’s website. Kayak should have accurate info right?So the hotel wouldn’t make any exceptions and I doubt they’ll waive the cancellation fee and now I’ve wasted over $100 and might pay over $100 more for canceling for the chance of a refund via Booking.com. Very disappointed that I now have to inconveniently take the extra step in the future to check each hotel I book, before I book, about their pet policy if I use Kayak. Won’t use Kayak again.
Terrible prices
by banayaor on 2021/11/04 05:33
I wanna get a flight for cheap, and all this is showing are expensive flights. They have no consideration for the poor who cannot be posting thousands of dollars for travel. Honestly this is discrimination. They only want to let the rich travel and see their families. UNFAIR

Flight grid is awesome
by Travel Abroad 007 on 2021/10/22 16:44
I’ve used Kayak for many years, starting with the website. Best thing about it is the ability to indicate the exact date you want to fly, with the option to show up to 3 days + or - that date. The results are shown in a grid with the highest and lowest prices indicated. So when you don’t have an exact date in mind you’ve got a meta-search result at your fingertips.

More reliable gate notifications than the airlines apps
by Digikata on 2021/09/26 18:51
Kayak has been a great travel booking site, but i also use it for managing my travel itineraries for work trips too. I find that when the trip info is in Kayak the notifications of gate changes is faster and more accurate than the airline apps themselves. And you get a consistent interface no matter what airline you’re on.
Just started let’s see how this relationship plays out
by harveytdog on 2021/09/26 15:21

False advertising hotel rates
by G-$tatu$ on 2021/09/07 02:58
It’s honestly shocking that is it is even legal for this app to advertise false hotel rates the way they do. They offered a hotel room for 99 and then charged us 236 plus a 50 deposit on the room. If I was a class action litigation attorney I’d be licking my chops to take down these thieves.

by Ames0h on 2021/08/26 06:48
I would never ever book a trip from Kayak again. The worst experience by far. Nobody to contact about a booking. Nobody contacts you back when sending an email. Nobody answer the phone from the number thats provided. Like it’s the worse. I seriously regret booking my trip with them. It’s been almost a month and I still can’t get a hold of anyone. Please book your trip directly through whatever airline you choose to fly don’t book through here or any 3rd party.

Shows rooms when none available
by FatCity42 on 2021/08/07 01:01
I previously used the app exclusively and was awesome. The last 3 road trips have been a night mare. It consistently shows hotels with no availability. I have walked in to the front desk only to be turned away. I tell them the app says there is rooms. They tell me if I reserved through the app there would be no room. My latest trip has been a family road trip. It works ok during the week but the weekend it is useless. You may as well drive door to door to each hotel and ask for a room. That is only slightly less effective than this app.

Wrong prices listed
by Jodi-with-an-I on 2021/07/07 02:57
I’m so frustrated. I’m researching where to stay and on kayak it lists one price, example $213/ night, then you click to book it and it brings you to VRBO site and its $425/night. It happened with several properties that I was interested in. Please correct in your end. You’re wasting people’s time.

Perfect app for travel planning
by mwibbs on 2021/06/28 00:50
Great way to compare multiple dates (using +/- 1 or 2 days), airlines, flights, even destinations (nearby airports), even hotel and car rental all at the same time to help make an informed decision. The app even makes recommendations to wait or buy tickets now depending on the pricing trend. I only wish it included Southwest as an airline but it has almost all the others.
Price Gougers - Total scam
by Angelo Tanu on 2021/06/26 20:58
Bought two [2] tickets from Tampa to Vegas. Listed for roughly 260. After a few options chosen with many deferred ended up with a total of around 750. Which at the very last minute when we are literally in the process of running my card, they jacked it up $140 for a total of $890. An illegal business practice, masquerading under the guise of necessity in which it based its strong arming tactic which pivots off the people’s needs. I hope this business practice burns with all participants a piece of tinder in this crooked practice. Be aware.

I don’t want to see the nightmare stripper down economy tickets but kayak has no way to screen those out. Stupid and useless.
Bad search results
by Gallaghedj311 on 2021/06/15 21:51
Trying to book a flight from Philly to Key West and there are 5 flights with a layover in Atlanta and they are all priced at $179. None of these links work! They all take me to Delta Airlines website where these same flights are listed at $461. Very disappointed in kayak. Believing I had so many options really screwed me up. Guess I’ll use Travelocity next time
Different advice on app vs browser
by mmw226 on 2021/06/15 17:12
I normally use the Kayak app watching the ADVICE feature that tells you if you should WAIT or BUY NOW. I have been watching a trip for the past few weeks and the app says WAIT. today I happened to check it on via your website and it said BUY NOW. So I did the same search on the app and it still says WAIT. This is an issue for me as I tend to only use your app. Why is the advice different ?
What does HAND LUGGAGE mean?
by FogCityNative on 2021/06/14 15:56
What exactly does HAND LUGGAGE mean? To some airlines hand luggage means an under seat personal item and conforming carry on bags cost extra. Viva Air will sometimes gives away checked baggage (which costs them money in labor to load and unload) but always charges for a bag in the overhead bin just to screw their flyers. American and Copa only charge for checked bags. Southwest doesn’t charge for a checked bag. Then the rules are complicated by if the flight is domestic or international. I did not buy a well priced flight because KAYAK used the undefined term HAND LUGGAGE. One star, sorry. That failure to define terms cancelled all other stars. Fix it and I’d give 5 stars. Imagine if hotels were priced like airline tickets. Want bedding on your mattress? Extra. Want a pillow? Extra. Need a second key? Extra. Toilet paper? Extra. Towels? Extra. In room locker? Extra. The airlines have made flying a miserable experience. KAYAK: Define Hand Luggage exactly for every airline and flight.
Sends details to Advertisers outside of app
by Thesuresh on 2021/06/12 06:34
I searched for trips to Alaska and within few hours I see YouTube ads in Alaska. App seems to be sending search info outside of kayak.
Warning! Kayak is Scam!!!!
by Nurlan1986 on 2021/06/10 15:00
You must never ever book any flights with them!!! They charged us twice and never issued any tickets!
Memory Lapse
by Skseth on 2021/06/10 14:57
The app consistently wipes out all the price alerts I create. Super annoying!!!
A joy to use
by RedXIII_ on 2018/06/15 03:12
Kayak has been a fantastic company to use for anything travel! & has continued to impress me with their fun and very easy to use features. Airline companies often set standard pricing for their flights and the caveat that the normal person is looking for it matching all these flights with their specific needs i.e. layover timeline, # of bags, airline make/model, & flight times. A ‘Good Deal’ is a very generalized term and many other apps use that as their main means of persuasion when in fact it’s clear that sites like Kayak are so good at categorizing exactly what meets your needs and alining airliners to your schedule, like advertised they have a multitude of tools like bag number and layover timeline settings with a accurate representation of what the cost will be regardless if it is two separate companies. If you choose a flight selection that has a 2 hour layover for one airliner and you select ‘book’ the airliners website which it directs you to within the app has that selection already selected. I could go on and on about how easy and secure this app is to use so please give it a try.
I love this app
by H3110 101 on 2019/03/05 01:19
I got this app for one plane flight, simple as that. I was planning on deleting it right after because I thought I had no use for it. But then I started to realize that any trips I was planning on taking would show up on this app and would be organized by time and date (because I connected my email). I’m planning on taking an Amtrak to the airport and then back again & accidentally chose the wrong date for the train back, and because Kayak organizes the trips so well, I was able to catch that but if not for this app, that would have been $20 down the bin & a missed class. I honestly love this app because there are no annoying adds that pop up when I’m trying to figure my plans out & it helps me organize everything so well. It also works offline when I’m looking at my already planned trips which will help out a lot when I’m abroad. I don’t use the search tool within the app for hotels cars or flights, but they have that option as well.
Update!
by Kwalter11 on 2019/02/05 04:01
This is such a good app so much better than Trip It or any of the other travel apps. But I really wish there was a way to automatically add the same passengers to different flights. So you don't have to add the same info for the same passenger over and over again. Also I wish that after you have put in a passenger/travellers info including their ticket number and seat number it would load mobile boarding passes onto the app for that flight. Or you could import mobile boarding passes. Keep up the good work Kayak. If you add these suggestions it will be 6 stars. P.S. I also wish you could change the profile of the travelers. P.P.S. Could you please add more games to do offline on your flight like: Sudoku, Crossword Puzzles,Tic Tac Toe, Hangman, Etc... -#1 fan
Great Site
by A1y2a3n4a5 on 2018/03/17 15:10
I've been using Kayak to book my flights for about 2 years now. I like them. Only thing that would make it better was if you could filter what types of flights you wanted for alert emails. I have two kids I'm flighting with this time and even though my last two flights basic economy was a great option because I'm not particular about where I sit, this time around I need to ensure my boys are beside me. I get really excited to see a price in a email just to see it's basic economy and the regular economy tickets are like $40 more. $40 difference is a lot when you need 3 of them. Another great improvement would be being able to mix and match the flight there and the flight back. Since we're going to New York to visit my fiancé I want a really early flight to get there and a late afternoon to come back. Sometimes they add up like that but usually they don't. I could book them separate but it would be a lot easier if they could just be chosen like that. Those are my only complaints. Still like and will use the site.
Great except for one thing
by Maddie1975 on 2018/06/11 07:36
The app is amazing. It is beautifully designed and works amazing. I only have one problem with it. It won’t let you search for a “youth’s” flight with no adult. Anyone above 12 is allowed to fly by themselves. They have a “youth” listed as a person between 12-17, whereas a “child” is 2-11. It would seem that they have this separated for the purpose of allowing someone to look at prices for just a youth; However, even when the youth ticket is added, when you try and delete the adult ticket selected on default, it will tell you that there must be one adult traveling. This makes it harder for me because different airlines charge different fees for unaccompanied minors, especially the ones that charge for the unaccompanied minor service no matter their age. As I am trying to book a flight for 2 teenagers, this is necessary for me. Disregarding that, the app is the most user friendly and easy to use booking apps I’ve seen.
Beware of “trips” portion of App
by NOK1033 on 2018/04/23 19:55
I have used kayak for a long time but recently had a very terrible experience and will not be booking flights through kayak anymore. Beware of the “trips” portion of the app. I bought a flight through kayak and it was added to my trips. There were changes to my flight, but my trips still reflected the original times, even though I used kayak to purchase my flights. Long story short I ended up missing my flight and paying lots of money in change fees. It’s odd to me that the company automatically lists the flight you purchased through their company under “trips” but do not update the flight information if an airline changes flight times. Even when I missed my actual flight my app still said “4 hours 27 minutes until take off”. Super unfortunate end to a trip, but learned my lesson to never book with kayak again. Also, when trying to sort and talk through this issue, I was unable to speak with anyone from kayak. The closest contact to a human you can get is through an email.
Worst experience ever spend over a thousand because of this company
by eddie laso on 2019/03/29 20:53
I normally use them for any vacation I go on but I missed my flight on Saturday in lax going to Charlotte NC and when I got to the airport they said only see one ticket from Washington to Charlotte and could not see any other tickets so we had to purchase new tickets on top of this from some where else but kayak charged my bank account and reaching them was impossible because it was an computer speaking for them I left my number and still have not received a call back from them if it was not for my bank I would not have receive a refund so if you do not care to speak to actual customer service reps then use it
Love KAYAK
by Colonel Brian M on 2018/11/24 11:47
As a retired military officer I’m entitled to “Space Available” flights on military aircraft. For the past five years I’ve taken advantage of this to fly from Travis AFB in California, through Yokota AFB in Japan to my final destination in Singapore. That’s when I start using KAYAK to investigate and book flights throughout South East Asia. Using KAYAK I’ve been able to comfortably book flights to Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and the Philippines. I also use KAYAK to get me to and from Orlando to Sacramento to start and finish the free portion of my travel from California. I’ve tried other travel sites and always return to KAYAK. I particularly like the feature allowing me to check the day before and after a travel date to get the cheapest flight. I don’t know how we’ll KAYAK works in other parts of the world, but where I travel it’s clearly the best.
Website is great. App not so much.
by Ericwood86 on 2020/03/11 22:33
We’re planning a wedding. The app, despite specifying dates without the option of plus/minus one day, it’s just factored in without making it clear that they have done that. You have to be smart enough to check dates, for day scouting out a destination wedding venue. Which sounds stupid since dates are obvious. But you give us a cocktease of flights extremely by one day off from correct travel plans and it’s not until we double check that we are disappointed. Appreciate all that you do, but you need to do better. On your website it’s quite clear if you’re adding a day either direction. On your app you just do it and don’t let us know. You have to assume we are stupid and won’t double check until the point we book. Bc that’s what most of us are. Stupid.
UPDATE: Bring back watchlist
by Clean app on 2019/11/05 06:14
UPDATE: so for some reason they buried the watchlist feature in settings. Not a great move. But it’s still around. Still a great app overall. Bring back watchlist please. One of the only reasons I had the app. Seems I’m not alone in that sentiment. I’m sure kayak has an algorithm to not fix this problem unless their Apple rating goes below a certain point. My guess is the airlines asked them to remove the feature. Also annoyed you can’t search in explore with the option to search by amount of time for a trip either. Also seems like something the airlines wouldn’t want them to offer. Maybe I’m wrong and this will get fixed tomorrow!
Kayak’s trip info is excellent
by YuTube2U on 2018/01/26 06:54
I LOVE this app. Yeah, it does a great job finding flights, cars and hotels but it’s real gem, the thing that makes this The Travel App is how it helps organize your trip. Everything neatly organized, in order. You can simply send your booking receipts to an email address and it organizes everything for you in one neat place. You can even pull up the booking receipt in the app, even if not generated by Kayak. There’s a cool way to show your taxi driver the address in a way that she doesn’t need to use reading glasses. One click and it’ll give you directions on your choice of Waze, google maps or Apple maps. This app Gets it Right. Way to go guys!!
Not always updated or working
by H2018A on 2018/09/23 18:19
It seems your recommendation for price change is not always appearing. Sometimes it recommends to wait as the prices will drop and sometimes does not show up at all. Then you want to follow it, but even the next day it does not tell anything, it makes it confusing to decide on waiting or buying the ticket at that time or still continue waiting as was suggested a day before. You buy the ticket due to uncertainty of the idea that in fact prices are still going up in those two days then after a week it starts showing up to wait again as the prices will drop. This is not costumer friendly. It is valuable to have such option for following, but if not consistent it becomes tricky.
Kayak + Skyscanner: Bait and switching now...
by HerFuzziness on 2019/05/25 19:19
Posted the same bad review for Skyscanner too: A few years ago, I stopped using Momondo because it would advertise flights for one price, THEN raise the price AFTER you input your credit card information. Kayak (and Skyscanner) isn't that bad, but for the last month, every time I've checked a price for the EXACT same flight for the EXACT same date, it advertises the same "bait" price, then after clicking on the adjacent link, the price doubles, then triples. Not sure why you'd advertise a one-way flight for $254 FOR A MONTH, but then increase it to $720. Shouldn't you stop the BS bait price on the umpteenth search? Should I blame the cookies? And you must realize that customers can actually search a plane's seat availability, so the claim that the seats are limited is tired, not just dishonest. So, way to go, Kayak. You're just as useless as Momondo and Skyscanner now.
Works but it’s a little sketchy
by .jay on 2018/10/31 18:30
So I realized after buying tickets through Kayak that Kayak is basically a curator for a bunch of possibly sketchy online travel agencies. Some data doesn’t get transferred over properly, your “My Trips” tab doesn’t always reflect what’s actually going on with your trip, and they completely absolve themselves from all responsibly once you buy tickets from whoever they linked you to. It’s not immediately clear who you’re dealing with unless you’re looking for it, because everything is still wrapped in Kayak’s branding and chrome. Hopefully, I won’t get screwed over by the company I bought tickets from. But I don’t feel good about my experience using Kayak as a service and will refrain from using it again, regardless of how my trip turns out. I’ll come back in a few months to update my review to reflect the end result.
Cancelon Travel Bookings via TripAdvisor Not Good
by Plinkos on 2020/03/17 23:52
Cancelon by TripAdvisor is a fraudulent service and should be removed from Kayak Service offerings. Please, please, please remove them. They give customers the run around and keep their money. We are in the mist of the COVID-19 virus outbreak and our trip to Italy is not possible and they are making it super difficult to get our money back. We even have emails from the hotel in Italy stating they would cancel and not charge anything to the booking company “Cancelon” which contradicts what they emailed us stating the the hotel refused. So, Kayak, please shut TripAdvisor and Cancelon off from your service offerings. Thank you, A huge fan of Kayak
Great app, can improve
by SriniVR on 2017/11/01 00:58
Kayak is a great app, and I really like the explore feature. I have found great deals using this feature. With the explore feature you can set the filters to narrow down by month and $ amounts. However, once you select a destination to look at actual flights, and then try to go back see other flight destinations - you cannot...the search results are lost and you have to start over the search and reapply the filters, making it frustrating. Wish there was a way to go back to the explore search results with the applied filters.
Ok for searching flights
by 2man73 on 2017/10/31 20:35
Using this to compare flights. Works ok if you know how to work around the issues. Airlines are smartening up and for example offer very reasonable prices until you discover that your first checked bag, your hand luggage, your meal and who knows what else all cost extra, so to really compare apples to apples gets harder and harder. Also, what I don’t like are the constant nagging to register and constant app updates that seem to bring no new functionality (and it’s fine, if it does what it needs to do I don’t need an update - but it seems like I’ll be able to price compare my baggage cart, coffee, travel literature and parking garage soon once the developers run out of ideas) and just seem to be done to remind people to use the app.
Best Travel App Period!
by F&MC on 2020/10/16 13:59
There are multiple travel apps out there, but the more I travel, both domestically and internationally, the more I rely on Kayak. The app is so user friendly and one of my favorite features is the ability to set up a price watch for future trips, not just for airline tickets, but also for hotels. So if you’re a planner like me, the assistance of Kayak and their ability to notify you when there is a price drop is a significant help! Clear the clutter in your life and get rid of all the other (lesser) travel apps! All you need is Kayak!
Could do a lot more and a good feature does not work.
by Pakitt on 2020/01/23 01:05
I use Kayak very often to track prices and find the best connections. The “See cheapest dates” function doesn’t work though. If a price is listed for a specific set of days, when you click on it the resulting search is markedly more expensive. Pity it would be an excellent function, but it doesn’t reflect reality and doesn’t show updated/current information. Another issue I have is that you cannot specify different cabin classes for different multi-leg trips. I’d like to able to set e.g. premium economy for long haul flights, and economy for shorter ones. Instead the class is applied inflexibly to all legs of a trip.
Disappointed
by Lovesimpsonsqer on 2020/05/16 23:04
Hello I am wondering why you falsely advertise the booking price? The flight prices you show make sure to let you know that fees and taxes included and if taxes are applied then it had to be based on a fixed “deal”. I just tried booking a flight today and the price with “fees and taxes included” so I clicked view deal and it just took me to the airlines actual website asking me to enter all the flight details. I though that might be an error so I tried again. This time it did show the flight but now the price which originally said $497 now shows $1,239. This seems pretty shady on your part since you clearly are compensated from the airline when their fights are booked through you and then you basically advertise click bate and wastes people’s time. Thanks for nothing.
Why Kayak is the greatest must have travel app
by Kmass81 on 2019/02/22 16:18
Today on southwest at 4am my flight was cancelled. No email from southwest, no call, no text. Without kayak I wouldn’t have known about this cancellation until arriving at the airport. Upon immediate notification of the cancellation kayak emailed me saying your flight has been cancelled this is your confirmation number here is southwests number to contact them etc etc. i never take the time to write reviews but this is by far the most pivotal program that kayak can have. Alerts before the actual companies you pay alert you.
worst customer service ever
by andychinn on 2019/05/07 15:55
I booked a hotel through Kayak and when I got to the hotel, they didn’t have my reservation. Kayak told me to book the room as a walk in and then the rate will be replaced in the morning with a call to Kayak. I’ve been on the phone for over 45min with them and they completely contradicted what they told me the previous day. I had to jump through many hoops and the operators I talked to were terrible, contradicted each other, and in the end, were extremely pushy into talking me into not cancelling my reservation, which is giving me a headache. One of the absolute worst customer service experiences I’ve ever had, and it’s still unresolved. I had to pay for my hotel room twice in the end! I cannot recommend this app. Use Expedia instead.
Terriable when you want to change flight schedule
by chjihfddfgh on 2019/12/28 17:51
Wanted to change flight schedule. First the agent told the change is done, and they charged my card for the change fee. But never receive any confirmation. After I called back a few days, they told me the booking is not successful, I asked why there’s no notification for that, they told me they don’t send any notification, I should call back to find out. What?! Then I have to make another change for my flight. And this time, their agent made another mistake, instead of change both of the passengers tickets, they change only one! The agent told me that they can not do anything now, but their manager will call me back, but I never receive any call. Will never use them again.
Horrible first experience
by JR1992x on 2019/06/22 21:21
I decided to rent through kayak and reserved a car for 4pm and paid the booking fee ($18). I arrive to the location only to find they were closed. Why would you allow me to rent a car and take my money if the location is closed? The employee inside comes out and tells me to use the airport location. Fine. I rebook another vehicle for the airport location and pay the booking fee again. They gladly accepted my money online but when I arrive to the airport I’m told I can only use a credit card. (I use debit) I’m not entirely familiar with renting vehicles, but it’s completely BS that you guys would allow me to book under these circumstances. I’m in the process of getting my money back but I can for sure say I won’t use this again.
The best travel mobile app I’ve ever used
by Torrance Carroll on 2020/01/19 22:13
I’ve been using Kayak for multi-flight and hotel search, Kayak explore, Kayak Trips and stats for the last 4 years. It’s consistently been the best mobile app for travel I ever used, with an incredibly clean and lean user interface, works great on flight mode, provides relevant notifications and updates regarding flight updates, and helps track travel itineraries for groups. The improvements Kayak has made of the years has consistently improved the user experience with useful and intuitive new features without ever going overboard with feature-creeping. Kayak is the number one travel app I recommend to anyone considering looking for a tool to book and manage multiple flights. Thank you to the team at Kayak and Booking for the incredible work and dedication to great mobile software craftsmanship!
And I thought it was just for booking flights!?!
by debdebtig on 2018/06/07 11:54
Recently went on a cross country trip and found that Kayak was more helpful than even the airline app. It tells you how long you can expect to take through security. And more importantly, how long it will take to get to the next get when you change flights. It has been spot on! You can also checkin from Kayak. The reminders have been a huge help. They almost seem to get flight updates BEFORE the airline app!
Please improve the watchlist
by doxzero on 2018/08/10 21:14
It’s a great app I use a lot, but it would be nice to have additional parameters in the watch list like a range of trip duration. A lot of times the chap flights being suggested are just not long enough and I would prefer to be able to just set the parameter to however many days max/min range I’m interested in to filter out the noise. Maybe that’s the answer, just allow day range as a filter option. Excellent work. I really enjoy and often use what you folks have created and I hope you will let your whole team know that.
Companies recommended are terrible.
by Jaime21 on 2021/11/05 20:19
I used to use kayak a lot. Recently they recommended a hotel company “Traveluro” I tired to book a hotel. I got a “error” message twice. I never received a confirmation or email so I assumed it didn’t book the hotel. I had to use another app to book. Well, I check my account and I had been charged TWICE with no confirmation number. Then I get a confirmation number 20 hours later! I get refused for one night but it’s been a nightmare trying to get my money back. I even called the hotel directly to explain and they said all Traveluro had to do was calll to cancel and they would approve. Traveluro has been giving me the runaround for 3 days!! Beware!!
Fraudulent!!!!
by DrDealio on 2020/10/20 12:55
You should validate every leg your buying from here directly with the airline to see if it even exists, prior to purchasing it. Many flights do-not exist!!! If you wait until after you purchase to find out, you will be stuck at the airport. Plus basically stuck with the bill. Good luck getting your money back!! The leading excuse you will get is passing the blame to the airline when in fact that is not true at all! (i.e. cancellation, etc.) Kayak does not accept responsibility for screwing you over when they KNOW there is a problem. The “get your money back” is deceptive! How valuable is your time? If you like being stranded, frustrated and angry at the airport... Go for it!
Stop asking me to turn on notifications
by khad on 2019/06/10 00:25
I already declined your prompt to turn on notifications. I don’t want notifications. Repeatedly asking every time I open the app is annoying and comes across as desperate. Just stop. UPDATE: In response to the developer’s suggestion to check my watchlist, there is nothing in my watchlist. That’s not what I’m referring to. When you open the app, it asks you to turn on system-level access to notifications. I don’t ever want to do that. Yet every time I open the app, I am still asked to turn on notifications. “No” means “no”. It does not mean “ask again next time I open the app and every single time I open the app forever”.
Inconsistent and wrong information on flight prices
by Ategworld on 2017/11/24 07:42
Lately I have tried to book flights on Kayak only to find out the prices quotes provided were much higher when I was about to finalize my purchases. This happened multiple times and cost me a lot of work and last minute changes to purchase tickets from other sites/travel agents. If I can’t trust the price quotes provided, the. What good is this app for. Sorry for the bad review but this is my recent experience.
BEWARE!
by JY237 on 2017/11/20 19:56
Up to this point, I have book many of hotels and flights with no issue. kayak has been my go to app for booking trips. BEWARE of a Kayak partner Vayama. When making flight, Kayak forwards you to a partner travel site for booking. On Kayak, flights are advertised as one level, ie economy class, which includes check-in luggage, but after purchased the ticket are downgraded to lesser class with no check-in luggage. Before booking, I went to airlines site to verify what was included in the economy class. I called the partner and the agents yelled at me. FALSE ADVERTISEMENT! I would recommend for all to check better business bureau. I wish had checked before wasting my money with them.
I love using kayak
by Herbicles on 2017/10/01 06:39
I am an avid traveler of the globe. I only use kayak for plane tix, but I love the way it is set up and the idea behind it to begin with. I especially like the forecasted wait or buy label they added at the top. The only thing I wish they would add is the ability to enter a specific date range without a destination. There is a whole subculture of peeps who just want to travel on a budget, regardless of where. LonelyPlanet+ Hostelworld make their living off this type of traveler.
Terrible user interface
by DragonBlue on 2018/02/24 01:53
Kayak app used to have much better user interface, this version is just terrible! 1. When selecting flexible dates flight options are displayed as a list, instead of table. Who wants to go through the list of hundreds of flights ... one needs to see table w dates first 2. Starting page in app - minimalism but reduced functionality. One has to click/tap on various menus etc .. and at the end one can not see what options are selected .. eg. flexible (+/- days) dates, biz vs economy ... alternative airport ... nothing is visible Summary, this app lost its value when interface was changed. I still use kayak but only on my laptop
Flight grid is awesome
by Travel Abroad 007 on 2021/10/22 16:44
I’ve used Kayak for many years, starting with the website. Best thing about it is the ability to indicate the exact date you want to fly, with the option to show up to 3 days + or - that date. The results are shown in a grid with the highest and lowest prices indicated. So when you don’t have an exact date in mind you’ve got a meta-search result at your fingertips.
Beware of companies included in search
by yogibear5650 on 2021/04/21 22:07
I am disappointed kayak includes car rental from the Latvia company Discover Cars as they are not honest. From kayaks website, I booked and prepaid from Discover Cars a car that I could cancel 3 days before pickup. I cancelled 2 days after booking when plans changed and was informed they could only issue future travel voucher — not my money. I checked my credit card and they had placed 2 pending rental charges on my card for the same car. I contacted Discover Cars and they credited one pending charge and offered future travel voucher for approx same amount as my 2nd pending charge (that should not have been made in the beginning). They refuse to acknowledge this 2nd charge tho I have sent them 2 pics of the pending charges from credit card statement. Only wish I had read reviews before booking with Discover cars as web is full of similar complaints. However, I trusted kayak and assumed they checked out companies they represented. Never again!!!
Missing Obvious Flights for No Apparent Reason
by PerfectTimingNV on 2018/05/25 05:21
This is unacceptable: it’s completely missing certain flights. For example, checked for nonstop flights from PDX to LAS on May 27th -it completely omitted three flights from Alaska Airlines. But, it showed one Alaskan flight that involved a transfer. And no, the directs were not sold out, not even close. I tripled-checked that there weren’t any parameter issues. I’ve suspected this in the past while searching for flights, but didn’t have this confirmation. This is literally the most important thing about a flight booking website -to show all options -and it failed. App deleted.
What does HAND LUGGAGE mean?
by FogCityNative on 2021/06/14 15:56
What exactly does HAND LUGGAGE mean? To some airlines hand luggage means an under seat personal item and conforming carry on bags cost extra. Viva Air will sometimes gives away checked baggage (which costs them money in labor to load and unload) but always charges for a bag in the overhead bin just to screw their flyers. American and Copa only charge for checked bags. Southwest doesn’t charge for a checked bag. Then the rules are complicated by if the flight is domestic or international. I did not buy a well priced flight because KAYAK used the undefined term HAND LUGGAGE. One star, sorry. That failure to define terms cancelled all other stars. Fix it and I’d give 5 stars. Imagine if hotels were priced like airline tickets. Want bedding on your mattress? Extra. Want a pillow? Extra. Need a second key? Extra. Toilet paper? Extra. Towels? Extra. In room locker? Extra. The airlines have made flying a miserable experience. KAYAK: Define Hand Luggage exactly for every airline and flight.
Gets the job done... must of the time.

The app gets it right... must of the time. However, there are some bugs and “fine prints” in this app that can make your travel interesting experience a bit more complicated than you wish. Maybe the app should have embedded warnings letting you know about possible situations you may encounter due to how fluid airline rules and regulations are. Also, based on the region you traveling, suggestions and warnings.
More Than Other Apps

I have used every travel app out there and this one is my favorite. It eliminates the need to check the others because it does that for you, in addition to researching special rates the hotel has. That’s how I found a great price for the hotel I’m staying in right now. Clean and classic accommodations for a bargain. That’s what I use travel apps for and what Kyack delivers. I will keep on depending on it. 5 stars.
Great App

This app is awesome. I prefer the interface and filters to all of the other sites and the fact that they also search the other sites to find the best deal is brilliant. However I'm pretty sure that they used to have a feature that allowed me to search for flights a few days back and a few days forward from a specified date and now I can't find that feature. That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
More reliable gate notifications than the airlines apps

Kayak has been a great travel booking site, but i also use it for managing my travel itineraries for work trips too. I find that when the trip info is in Kayak the notifications of gate changes is faster and more accurate than the airline apps themselves. And you get a consistent interface no matter what airline you’re on.
Best of the best

This app is my one and only go to app for travel. I love the feature that syncs your email reservations with the app because it will display your whole trip in a very organized manner, even if you book something outside of kayak. Although, I recommend using Kayak for bookings, they always have lowest prices. I just love this app so much. For someone that likes to keep things organized, and all in one place, this is the app for you.
Perfect app for travel planning

Great way to compare multiple dates (using +/- 1 or 2 days), airlines, flights, even destinations (nearby airports), even hotel and car rental all at the same time to help make an informed decision. The app even makes recommendations to wait or buy tickets now depending on the pricing trend. I only wish it included Southwest as an airline but it has almost all the others.
Flight canceled without notification
by chiadmi k on 2021/03/16 12:41
Very bad communication, my flight was cancelled on the 02/26 and was never notified by kayak . By chance one of my friend that was traveling with me called me the night before to tell me . I had to change my ticket with the airline to have a departure from NY instead of IAD . I had to purchase on my own a ticket from IAD to NY plus the luggage. After complaining to the airline they told me that they informed kayak on the 02/26 . I could had go to the airport and had nobody there . If I could give a 0 rating I will . It cost me an additional 450$ which should be reimbursed to me . I definitely won’t recommend kayak to anybody .
Exactly what I wanted
by Madkitteh on 2019/12/23 05:29
This is the best app known to mankind. The interactive map feature that shows you the flight prices for anywhere in the world is exactly what I needed. And then being able to click on a specific airport and sort what time of year it’s cheapest to fly to that destination is great. Pure genius. Thank you app developers for providing an excellent example of what the human brain can do
My go to

I use a lot of discount sites and kayak usually has their price meet or beat. Can be a bit frustrating using the watch list feature as it often isn’t accurate when you actually try to book-still a big time and money saver. I recommend it often to friends, acquaintances, and coworkers. Experiences last and things don’t, everyone should travel more.
Easy and informative
by CritterGuardian on 2017/11/14 22:23
Kayak has been my default travel biking source for years. I use it for flights and hotels but have not yet used it to book a car. Easy to use, competitive pricing in search results. I like the notifications for flight delays. When my flights have been delayed Kayak had the update but the airlines app did not update to reflect the delays. Useful, helpful, and recommended.
Great App!

I thoroughly love using this app. Not only can you compare prices of travel choices regarding hotels, rental cars and airfare it also records all records regarding each trip taken. I love to look back on my past travel details from time to time. What I would like to see added is cruise, rail and any group travel info that is taken. Highly recommend all to use this app!
