This New App Will Help You Score Outrageous Flight Deals
On Wednesday, the desktop-only platform revealed its first mobile app—and it could be a game-changer.
The members-only site can send real-time alerts and push notifications whenever it detects massive price drops, error fares, or flash sales. DealRay spotlights localized, and often-exclusive deals (no more scouring pages of deals to find one at your airport) discovered with a mix of proprietary algorithms and good old-fashioned research.
At Travel + Leisure, we’ve found $342 round-trip flights from our New York City office to Hong Kong, and a $264 round-trip flight from Boston to Iceland.
DealRay alerts come with step-by-step instructions for booking the deals. And according to their site, members can expect to save an average of $428 per deal.
The app, currently only available on iOS (Android is on the way), is free but you'll need a membership to get alerts on deals. Travelers can sign up for a one month free trial, after which it’s $9.99 per month.
