The new search engine by Microsoft, Bing.com, offers a great tool for travelers looking for low prices on flights. The tool combines two methods for users to find the best deal:
1) Airfare deals – The tool searches all flights from the major carriers and provides them in order from the lowest cost. The intuitive search tool allows you to specify your travel times and specific needs. This is similar to other flight searching sites like Kayak, Orbitz, and Priceline.
2) Forecast Technology – Along with each search results, Bing’s forecast technology predicts whether airfare costs are expected to drop further or rise within the next 7 days. This is based on the seat availability and flight offerings of your particular search.
The price predictor is a great tool for finding the best deals and planning ahead for your travel dates. This is one of the many new tools that is allowing Bing to gain a foothold in the search engine market.
