    Time, money & stress saver


    Addictive - makes me want to travel even more

    I fly a lot, but I'm not rich. Why is it so difficult to find cheap flights and why does it seem like airlines don't apply any logic to their fares at all? Hitlist has already saved me many hours of checking airfares online. I get notified whenever an interesting fare comes up for a destination that's on my wishlist. Hitlist works better for me than Hopper.

It's been exciting to watch the evolution of this app as @gillianim continues to execute on one of the better travel apps out there (and it's both a complex and competitive space).

Thanks @chrismessina. We're sick of seeing apps that offer you 'cheap flights to Vegas' and thought there could be a better way to plan travel. Hitlist helps you find places that excite you, follow friends that inspire you, and scan the best prices for all the types of trips that might interest you. v3 is the culmination of four months' direct work but also five years of learnings in this industry.

Absolutely. Travel, and friends go hand in hand. Most of my travel decisions have been based on inspiration from friends. Making that process easy is a win!

@elbahnasy to put this into numbers - the head of product at Tripadvisor said that when people connected Facebook to Tripadvisor, conversions increased 27%. So it's not just you and me but a substantial number of users of the biggest travel site in the world that get travel inspiration from friends.
