Bing is making news all the day of the week. Today, Bing has announced the partnership with online travel website Kayak. Kayak is a travel search site, which lets you compare options, and when you find something that fits your budget and tastes, you can book it where you want: at the airline site, from the hotel, or from a travel agent. Bing is partnering with KAYAK to improve their travel search query experiences. Microsoft has its own travel search technology such as Fare prediction through its acquisition from Farecast.
From Bing Blog,
“ Today, we’re excited to welcome a new technology partner, KAYAK. Teaming up with KAYAK, a leading innovator in travel search, allows us to provide a more comprehensive travel search experience. In the coming weeks KAYAK will provide flight search results in the U.S. from multiple cities, airports and airlines, giving customers access to a larger set of flight itineraries as they work to plan and book travel on Bing.
So what does this mean for customers? It means Bing Travel is getting more powerful and comprehensive when it comes to helping customers plan and book travel. When combined with Bing’s own tools and technologies such as Price Predictor, rate indicator, flexible search tools and Flight Answers, we are really doubling down on giving customers the tools to make faster, more informed travel decisions. Travelers, rejoice! “
Excited to see the results of this partnership.
