Yapta just announced the launch of its new airfare price-tracking service for leisure travelers. Yapta has been tracking airfares since 2007 and has helped consumer travelers save more than $350 million on airfare to date. The free service allows travelers to track the price of their booked flights and receive alerts when the price drops, so they can re-book their seat and save. Yapta also enables travelers to simply observe pricing trends on specific flights before making a booking.
To begin tracking airfare prices using Yapta’s new and improved service, visit my.yapta.com to first create an account (or log in to an existing account). Once an account has been established, you can begin tracking flights. Yapta’s system accounts for any airline rebooking fee before issuing a price drop alert, so all price notifications represent a net savings.
As part of the new release, Yapta has announced Skyscanner as its new flight search integration partner, and Traxo as its partner for travel itinerary parsing. By utilizing Skyscanner’s API, travelers can now search and identify the specific flights that they want to have price-tracked, and then have Yapta alert them when the price drops, or when it hits the price they want to pay for the ticket.
Yapta has also utilized Traxo’s CAPTURE service to automatically consolidate trip information using travel itinerary emails from hundreds of travel suppliers globally. If you’ve already booked a flight, you can simply forward your itinerary confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org to automatically initiate the price-tracking service.
