Why should I give you payment details for a free trial? Do you not have confidence in your own product successfully converting me to a paying user?

Pros:

I don't know - I dropped off when asked for payment details for a free trial

Cons:

Can't try the service without giving payment details

I'm from France and I don't have the cities Paris and Bordeaux in "from" cities. Can you add them ?

Pros:

Good UI

Cons:

Not enough cities

Awesome product! If you actually travel this is an amazing product. If you are just a dreamer and want to look at the site and flights I guess giving the card info could be a problem. Honestly that seems stupid to me. If you are actually looking for flights and traveling then the price is way worth it and there is no problem with card info. It is way worth every penny and I think people complaining are people that just want to freeload on something and are probably not even going to use it. I just booked 3 flights to Peru that normally are over $1000 for $300 bucks each. I have been to Peru many times and have never paid less than $800 per ticket until Faredrop.

Count me in for travel, sports, and fun
I saved ~$750 on my first flight booked with Faredrop, that paid for the membership 15 times over!

Overall a nice product, I do understand why some people have issues putting in their card info before the free trial starts. However, I received many flight alerts prior to booking my trip. You also need to be realistic with your spending limits, the lower you set it when you sign up, the less likely you will receive alerts.

Pros:

Easy to use interface

Cons:

entering card info before free trial ends.

Many people are unhappy you need to enter credit card details to use the product even for a trial, and as such are rating the proudct as terrbile./

Pros:

They send you loads of insanely cheap deals to exactly where you want to leave from in your specified date range

Cons:

You need to wait until the email is sent to view deals

UI is basic, some minor stuff like you have to adjust something in order to save your preference (even if you don't want to change the pre-selects).

Pros:

Idea is good

Cons:

For a new (not established) platform to ask for card details and then will automatically charge after 1 month is a huge con for me.

I'm loving what I am seeing from Nate & Kara when they decided to do FareDrop. I think its a smart and sophisticated move by two veteran travellers. Ppl are hating on the cc ask -- lots of other apps with lesser street credit have done the exact same thing. We're getting all the alerts for the cities that we plugged in and at the fare rates we set for the alerts. Kudos and Id recommend it to anyone that is serious about travelling. Great to seeing this coming out of a different space that the traditional startups. This team gets metrics.. they are one of the most transparent couples out there with their quarterly revenue reports.
Weak. Not offering anything special that any of the other fare deal aggregators aren’t offering. Deals are mediocre at best and in the 3 months I’ve subscribed I haven’t gotten a single deal that was “amazing”. Over priced. And I don’t like the fact there isn’t a free trial with out credit card.
Definitely the best flight deal finder I have used. I've tried others and never get very good deals. Faredrop is better because it only sends actual DEALS, not just slightly-cheaper-than-normal flights that the other services bombard your inbox with.
I have had this for 8 months now and booked multiple deals ORD-BKK $550 RT, MCO-London $330RT and MCO-Caymen Islands $180RT. If you are flexible with travel it is worth the yearly, if not then skip it
They want sensitive personal and financial date for a free trial? For a real free trial, you don't need it.
I love building stuff.
Tried it, wasn't impressed.
Used this from Australia (from the beginning) and there were a few deals but nothing worthwhile, we recently had a half price deal for our major airlines due to Covid-19 and none of these were picked up. The only reason why I had it for so long was I forgot to stop the service. There's no email warning and once you cancel, it's immediate so it doesn't even take you to the time you've paid for. I've cancelled now with a month left of what I've paid for. Other services are much more sophisticated that this. Save your money.
I took my first FareDrop flight from Nashville, TN to Athens, Greece on American Airlines for $300!!! I would have never taken this trip of a lifetime without FareDrop sending me the deal - $50/year is easy to justify with the kind of Flight Deals that FareDrop is able to find!
