We have so many options when it comes to booking flights, but we just found out about a very cool new one launching TODAY called Hipmunk. It’s easy to use, pretty to look at, and gets us where we want to go. Check it out!


Here is their pitch from their own website.

We’re excited to announce Hipmunk launches today.

We’re a website that makes finding the right flight faster and easier than anywhere else. For example, we:

* Allow you to visualize how your flights compare in time and duration
* Instantly sort results by price, duration, number of stops, etc.
* Keep multiple searches open at once
* Instantly filter results by time of day, using our sweet draggable triangles
* Hide flights you’d be crazy to take
* Show all results on a single page

And this is just the start. In the next weeks, we’ll be rolling out a number of new features to make it even easier to find the right flight.


Who They Are:
Steve Huffman, Co-founder. Steve previously co-founded Reddit, which was acquired by Condé Nast in 2006.

Adam Goldstein, Co-founder. Adam previously co-founded BookTour, and authored AppleScript: The Missing Manual.

Hipmunk is funded by Y Combinator and SV Angel.
