Yapta

Via Jen Pondo's Monday Mission... here's my travel guide entry.

Travel tool for cheapskates

Admit it, traveling is expensive, and you don't mind saving a buck.

Booking airline tickets is tough for cheapskates. Watching airfares go up and down, wondering when is the right time to buy... it's almost like playing the stock market. You want to get the best deal possible, but you don't want the flight to sell out.

That's where Yapta comes in.

There are a lot of "fare watchers" out there, and some work better than others. What I like most about Yapta? It watches fares for purchased itineraries... and if the fare goes down it emails you step by step instructions for getting your money back.

Now - sometimes it's cash, sometimes it's a voucher. But a voucher is still better than watching dollars sprout wings and fly away.

So, when the airfare for an upcoming trip dropped 50 bucks? I got $250 back on our five tickets. How cool is that?
