Kayak, which is a subsidiary of The Priceline Group, began offering travel search engine services in 2004. The company offers global search services for a wide variety of travel options, including flights, hotels, rental cars, cruises, and vacation packages.
In an attempt to provide travelers with the most reliable results, Kayak pulls information from thousands of travel sites and compiles them in a way that is easy to sort through and book.
Kayak allows travelers to book their entire trip using its platform. For example, consumers have the ability to book flights, hotels, rental cars, cruises, and vacation bundles through Kayak. Additionally, the company provides a number of helpful tools and resources, including the following:
There are several useful search functionalities on Kayak's website. Travelers are able to find affordable accommodations at some of the most popular travel destinations in the world by using Kayak's price and customer rating filters. Users may also filter based on location.
The Kayak mobile app, which has been downloaded over 40 million times, is available for both Apple and Android devices. The app is free and allows travelers to search thousands of travel sites at one time, receive alerts about price changes, and access mobile-only deals. Users can also use the app to manage their trips while on the go.
There is not necessarily an incentive for frequent travelers to continue to use Kayak to book their accommodations, as it appears that the company does not offer its own unique rewards program. Typically, travel agencies will allow travelers to earn points or cash back for each dollar they spent on various accommodations. However, it appears that Kayak does not offer its own rewards program or points system for those that use its site.
Kayak's website seems to be a bit cluttered at times. There is a lot going on, making it somewhat difficult for users to navigate to important features and information.

I have a few thoughts on the travel site Kayak. I think it's an easy webpage & application to use, with very smooth features. It's easy to find cars, flights, hotels all right there. I don't think Kayak finds the cheapest prices online and I feel the security terms are a bit extreme or complicated.
Kayak is a great resource if you are looking for one place to book everything for your trips. I definitely plan on using their flight tracker again!
I love Kayak! I always find the lowest price here, every time that I search for a hotel. I have never had an issue with my reservations or bookings either.
I like using kayak for price checkin from other travel website. I like finding the best prices that I can and kayak does exactly that. Their website is simple and easy to use.
We have been happy with Kayak. We have been able to find some good deals. I feel like they do a good representation of their deals. No misleading. No complaints.
I like using Kayak because it compares the other travel sites for me so I don't have to. So I know where I am getting the best deal. I definitely always go here before I book my travel.
