AirHelp

Get paid when you're delayed!

If your flight was delayed, canceled or overbooked you could get up to $680!

WIRED
When an airline bumps us from a flight or delays us for hours on end, most of us accept our meager meal vouchers and swallow our pride. A bold few might actually file a claim for compensation, but when an airline either fails to answer the claim or rejects it outright, those passengers usually give up, too.
TechCrunch
Few things are more dreadful than dealing with airline customer service. Fortunately, there's a startup that wants to make those calls for you. For hassle-free travel, is raising $12 million in Series A funding from a group of investors, including Khosla Ventures and Evan Williams .
USA TODAY
Don't get me wrong: I'm all about buying American. In fact, I'll go out of my way to search for items made in the USA and will even pay more for American-made products. But when it comes to buying airfare to foreign destinations, I think twice.

Hipmunk

Cheap flights, cheap hotels, and travel Search

Ryan Hoover- Founder, Product Hunt
Hipmunk has been my go-to for flight booking. It ranks flights and prices based on "agony" because sometimes the cheapest flight is the most painful (e.g. multiple connections, long layovers). My only complaint is that it doesn't include Southwest Airlines.
Brian Leonard- Head of Customer Experience, Bringhub
I love Hipmunk for finding flights and hotels once you have decided on where you are going. Slick UI and lets you visually see the length of time of flights + price alert notifications.
Ryan Hoover- Founder, Product Hunt
I default to Hipmunk when searching for flights. It sorts flights by "agony" which takes into account departure/arrival times and obnoxious layovers.

Mapstr lets you keep track of all your favorite places around the world, tag them, and share them with who you want!

To remember your best spots (restaurants, bars, museums...), your friends recommendations, and to plan your next trip, download Mapstr and build the map of YOUR world!

David Baruchel- Founder, CaptainParrot & Start The F* Up
Great UX and gorgeous design. Easy and fast to add a new place. I use it to keep track of restaurants & bars people tell me about with a wishlist tag. Love the fact that you can only describe the place in 140char (I usually use 5 words), avoids the "infinitely-long yelp review effect".
David Baruchel- Founder, CaptainParrot & Start The F* Up
All those moments when friends said they tried a new restaurant/café/... and I just said "sounds cool! I'll try it" and forgot... All those moments when I'm searching for a new place, but Yelp reviews don't help... For me Mapstr solves both those pain points: I created a wishlist tag, and now I'm never short of new places to try. Plus the overall UX and int… See more

Mapstr is an interesting app, a sort of bookmarking service, but for places. It's a great way to bookmark your favorite restaurants, bars and shops. When I first reviewed the app, it was still a beta. Mapstr is now back with version 1.0 and a bunch of interesting features that make it more useful.

Hitlist 3.0

Plan, share, and book trips with friends

Dan Fennessy- Founder at Party with a Local
Hitlist is great because you don't even need to search for flights - you just let it know where you're interested in going & they send you the best options as they come up. Amazing deals sometimes! Especially if you are a bit flexible on dates.
Gillian Morris- CEO, Hitlist

Tripomatic 3.0

Itinerary planner for independent travelers

Kunal Bhatia- Co-founder & Design Lead @SlidesUp
When I traveled to India for 3 weeks, I used Tripomatic (now called Sygic Travel) to plan each day. I got quite a few recommendations on what to go see when I started planning. It's really helpful with the map feature, and you can organize your trip however you want. The route mapping is really helpful, and it can help you decide how many things you should d… See more
