DescriptionHipmunk is the fastest, easiest way to search for flights and hotels. The app will save you time by comparing all the top travel sites so you don’t have to. Our unique display makes it easy to visually compare results to choose what’s best for you. And, Hipmunk for Android is totally free.
Unlike every other travel app out there, Hipmunk doesn't just show you the cheapest flight first--the app sorts by "agony" instead, which incorporates important factors like flight duration, number of layovers and price. Hotel results are shown on a map so you can see exactly where you'll be staying in a destination. You can also read TripAdvisor reviews in the app and turn on heatmaps to see which are the best areas to stay in based on unique interests like food, landmarks, nightlife and more.
With Hipmunk, you can securely book a hotel in just a few taps whether the hotel is for tonight or for an upcoming trip. Select "Hipmunk" for your booking option. For flights and hotels, you can also email an itinerary to some else or finish booking on your desktop.
