This is so cool. After you book a hotel of your choice, TripRebel searches for price reductions of your booked hotel room every single day. Every time your hotel price drops, you get a 100% refund of the difference. Fully automatic. WHAT

@AnujAdhiya currently our offer is similar to Tingo but more focused on the European Market. However we are working on some crazy new features that will blow your mind :)...

@BryanPostelnek oooooohhhhh yeeeessss! We will crack that nut in the future as well! I just tried to book a flight to Brazil in the last 3 days and couldn't do it as prices were changing on a hourly base... not much different with hotels though...

@bramk they are quite cool! The only thing is that it works kind of like an insurance policy and only for a limited time (I think 7 days). Did you already give it a try? I should do it for my flight to Brazil...

@cbgf I think they're only doing continental US right now, not international flights yet. They've switched a little in their proposition. Endgame = you book a flight at $xxx (most common AVERAGE price based on algorithm). THE TICKET IS NOT BOUGHT YET. Flyr relies on their algorithm to buy the actual ticket at a LOWER price. Then you split the difference in $ with flyr and get a cheaper ticket :)
