Great app!
just sam430 on 4/20/2018
I love the watchlist option. Keeps me posted on great deals. Have only ever used this app for all my flights and I have checked other websites but they don’t always have as good deals as this does.
Best Flight Deals out there!
Mzzzkay on 4/19/2018
Love the app! Hands down better than Expedia or Priceline!
Where are the filters?
Canoeguynow on 4/19/2018
Can’t find the filters to change how I search.
Muy buena App
<}€8:/ on 4/14/2018
Please revert to previous version
Kamore on 4/12/2018
I’ve loved & recommended Kayak for about 4 years. It’s been a great place to find and book great deals. I hate this last update! You can’t update the dates to search the prices & when you zoom in & out the prices disappear. Please fix this!
Tired of Kayak falsifying prices
rockinra on 4/12/2018
I think this has to be mentioned. I am not one to leave bad reviews but this has gotten ridiculous. I have gotten emails from Kayak about hotel deals and while searching, Kayak shows me deals and EVERY time I’ve gone to book it says “Sorry, that deal is already sold” and then it gives me a ridiculously high price. This is such a waste of time! I’ve had to switch to a different app. Maybe it’s because of the city I’m trying to book in, New York? But it sure has been very poor this time unfortunately and I have to say something about it because it just in not right.
Its a scam
qouto on 4/11/2018
When you call to book for a price that listed. They say doesn’t exist. This happened several times. And I told him I’m looking at the price right now. They say refresh your computer. I do and it still appears. It’s a scam
Used to be great...
Y2K' on 4/11/2018
What happened.... I use the explore part of the app to get most of my flights. The newest update has made it where you can't select out of the country, and the even with in the states it won't work. I would give it a one star but I have used this app with handful of times with great success, I wish you guys wouldn't have ruined it. Make this App Great again
Vonagelover on 4/10/2018
This is nice to search for flights. But no use in booking. Always the price increase when try to book. Searched for flight, click to book, navigate from kayak to Arline website - the price is higher ( says price increased. How come it will increase with in a minute) Happens all the time. No use in booking flights.
Great app
NYCers on 4/10/2018
Works well. Thank you Kayak!
Tay3894 on 4/7/2018
I loooove this app. I use this website every time I book a flight because it’s giving the actual price of the flight at the moment.
Need multiple payment Options.
BryanWynn775 on 4/4/2018
Not enough payment options.
Kayak is great. Thus app? Not so much
Mjoecups on 4/4/2018
App doesn’t feature all of the tools of the browser based kayak. Stick with using a Mac and Safari for a better experience.
Tired them all this is the best
SenorDosXs on 4/3/2018
I book trips for my whole family multiple times a year. And Ive found Kayak is leaps and bounds beyond other budget flight websites/apps. Best filters options to find just the right flight. My go to app!
Best there is, but thats not good enough
ArqGrinCholo on 4/2/2018
Among my recent problems using Kayak was around sept 2017 LAX-MEX-LIM was the kayak site sent me to a purchasing site that for my first class ticket, an AEROMEXICO did not recognize the vendor
Spams you with push notifications.
In App Cynic on 3/30/2018
Push notification out of nowhere: “Ready to start planning your next adventure?” Not after this I’m not. I’ll go to your app on my terms, not yours, thank you. Uninstalled.
Mostly good
Soitsme on 3/29/2018
This app is quite helpful and can be quite intuitive. But at times it's just odd. It will show certain flights as it searches and then those flights disappear when done. It will show a flight to a certain airport as a layover but not direct to that airport. Just odd.
gbell1030 on 3/27/2018
How is ZRH Zürich International Airport in Seebach, Switzerland? Seriously Kayak? C’mon. Pay attention to the details.
Larry Lee Jr on 3/26/2018
The app takes over once you allow access this is making things so simple to schedule and notify. Makes me want to start traveling more since it’s so easy.
My favorite side to use
Riuxbaby on 3/24/2018
Kayak makes my travel search so easy it finds me the BEST and most ECONOMICAL PRICES. Would NOT use Any other site! Thanks Kayak! You NEVER let me down. Love Rouxbaby
Vayama charged service fee
 小隨 on 3/21/2018
Be aware, the partner of Kayak, Vayama, will charge you for the UNREFUNDABLE service fee. And, there is NO NOTICE or any sign before the website transfer from Kayak to Vayama. I got the email notification from my credit card bank, and then I knew the Vayama charged me 5 bucks for service.In addition, the flight didn't book successfully. Crazy. Unbelievable. Disappointed. Wish Apple provide 0 star comment.
Multi city trips
Sarataicha on 3/20/2018
It allows me to see and watch fares if I’m planning multi-city trips!
No better planning app for travel!!!
shaunposey78 on 3/19/2018
I always use Kayak to plan all my traveling. The filters for flights allow me to quickly find the perfect flight to meet my needs. Plus, it’s super-easy to share travel info with my friends and family. There’s simply no better app to use!!
My favorite app!!
Annie G 73 on 3/18/2018
Great for finding flights!
Sageey on 3/18/2018
What’s the point of this app if they cannot guarantee the fares? It tells you one thing, you then click on the fare to book it and the app directs you to the airline website where they then bump up the prices significantly. It’s a total bait and switch. Other travel booking apps I’ve tried don’t tease you with the unrealistically low fares so I will be deleting this and using others
Great Site
A1y2a3n4a5 on 3/17/2018
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.
Bate and Switch
Mari Lynn on 3/16/2018
It is misleading to have a price listed and then when you click on it you get the notice that the fare is no longer available and are then offered a different, much more expensive fare as the best fare offered.
Adjusting dates is awful
Meh83737374 on 3/14/2018
Adjusting travel dates in this app are so awful I gave up looking.
So incredibly convenient!!
kreis4659 on 3/14/2018
Love that there is an app that makes travel easier! So not complicated!
للسفر أحسن
SoMeEco on 3/13/2018
أفضل اب للسفر
Easy to use, functional; best ‘trips’ features
eejd on 3/11/2018
Still pretty good, but getting worse for reasons I cannot explain...
Best app for traveling
Ijakdo on 3/10/2018
I use other apps for other purposes but this is the best for air traveling for me. Right information at the right time. Extremely accurate so no need to look up and search. Thanks guys you are the best
Best travel app
kcw47 on 3/9/2018
Kayak is my go to travel all for flights and hotels, includes results from multiple sources. Doesn’t include southwest airline results so you have to look there separately.
Works half the time
esp444777 on 3/9/2018
I love using kayak but the app works about half of the time I use it. An error message that reads ‘issues connecting to server’ pop up, and you’re then unable to search or use the app. Two stars because when it does work, it’s great!
Quick & easy with great prices
KatieM1234 on 3/8/2018
Title says it all. It compares many airlines, hotels, and car rental companies in one place for quick cheap travel bookings. Southwest isn’t on kayak however, so be sure to check that separately. I use this app all the time... even to just curiously check the cost of flights sometimes.
Best app.
Moolah moolah on 3/6/2018
A feature to sort based on how close to the actual date will be great.
Good stuff
jasonhacks on 3/4/2018
Fast, simple.
Could be better
Llamallama9 on 3/3/2018
I don’t see why there’s not an option to book a flight and hotel at the same time. Seems like that would be common sense. Uninstalling until that’s added. I’ll just use Expedia or Priceline for now.
Preferences are pathetically limited
SendingOutAnSOS on 3/3/2018
Other than setting a home airport there are few other options. How about preferences for airlines? I will NEVER fly Frontier or Spirit so I have to eliminate them manually on every search. How about setting a preference for direct flights? As someone who flies for a living and travels often for pleasure, the app has improved but still is lacking. It’s still not as good as the previous one which I paid for and then had it taken away for this updated add filled version.
jodecee on 3/1/2018
Always keeps me apprised of great deals!
Alerts and flight search is awesome
SabbyNet on 3/1/2018
I have been using this for years....
Bait & Switch?
Non-phone-user on 2/26/2018
Very frustrating to follow links in e-mail alerts to fares that do not exist. This has happened too many times. They’ll tell you it’s because prices are fluid, and fleeting. I’ve tried to get these fares literally within 5 minutes of receiving the e-mail alert, to no avail. Time to start looking for another, more reliable & trustworthy site.
Filter to avoid long delays
TJdexx on 2/25/2018
Great app EXCEPT no filters to avoid layovers greater than 4or more hours: Why.
Best app for getting flight fares
Oga_Himself on 2/23/2018
Certainly my best app for getting best travel fares. Also supports hotel booking and can help set reminders on up-coming flights.
Terrible user interface
DragonBlue on 2/23/2018
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
DayoWon on 2/23/2018
Current version won’t let you enter destination for flights or hotels. So essentially useless. Please fix. 11.2/IPhone 7+
Chloe13Dahman on 2/22/2018
Searching is much more efficient over the online website
No Apple Pay??
Vascaino1979 on 2/22/2018
This would be so much easier with Apple Pay!!
My go-to App
Wannadance73 on 2/19/2018
We get employee discounts from our work, but Kayak usually finds cheaper and/or better deals!
Doesn't work. Nothing loads.
Haharmgifuc on 2/15/2018
App doesn't work anymore.... Nice update....
