The Best Websites for Airfare Alerts

flightOur PHL parking members know that traveling is exciting – but not when you’re paying an arm and a leg for your flight. If you’re planning on taking a vacation (or want to take one spur-of-the-moment), the best way to track airfare prices is by alerts. Check out these websites:

Airfarewatchdog

www.airfarewatchdog.com

This website lets you create an account and track City-to-City alerts (for round-trip fares to and from specific cities), Anywhere That’s Cheap alerts (for the cheapest round-trip fares available departing from your area), Meet Me in St. Louis alerts (for round-trip fares from multiple destinations to a single city), and regular updates on money-saving ideas.

Yapta

www.yapta.com

Yapta.com lets you track specific flights to make sure you pay the lowest amount. Once you create an account, you can log into My Trips and choose which flights you’d like to track. You can also track airline refunds, credits, and vouchers in case  the price of your flight dropped after you bought it.

SmarterTravel

www.smartertravel.com

This website is one of the easiest to sign up for – all you need is an email address. After that, you can choose from various travel deals and fare alerts like the Deal Alert (for the best travel deals and advice each day), City to City Route Alert (for alerts on round-trip city-to-city travel), and the Departure City Fare Alert (for the lowest-priced flights leaving from the city/cities that you choose).

FareCompare

www.farecompare.com

After you sign up for FareCompare, head to the My Trips section to enter your home airport and destinations you’d like to go to. You can tailor your trips to specific travel dates, flexible departure dates, and anytime travel. The website also offers travel advice and flight deals.

Kayak

www.kayak.com

This website not only lets you compare flights on multiple websites, you can also track your upcoming trips with My Trips and create flight price alerts for exact dates, flexible dates, or to your top 25 cities. Kayak will alert you when the flight is available at your chosen ticket value amount or lower.

And remember – if you’re flying out of PHL, be sure to leave your car at our PHL parking facility. We’ll take good care of it while you’re gone.
