Flight fares tools in Trabber

16 May 2011

In this post we summarize all flight search tools that we have developed for Trabber in addition to the Flight and Flight offers search engines.

Let’s metion firstly Trabber Radar, a system that scans flight fares close to the dates selected, to suggest users the best dates to travel. We recently launched a second version, more powerful and with an improved user interface.

Another interesting tool is Price evolution, which shows in graph how the price of a flight has changed over time. This information is useful to determine the fare trend and determine whether the rate is rising, falling or stable. You can find this information in the top right side of Trabber search engine result page.

In the Flight offers search enginee we intregrated several useful tools such as the Monthly fare chart, which presents visually the days of the month in which flying is cheaper for your route. Furthermore, for searches in which no specific destination has been selected, there is Offers in a map, which shows the best deals found by Trabber users in the last days.

We hope that these tools will help you to find the best options to travel.

Trabber Radar version two

31 March 2011

We are glad to present now the second version of Radar Trabber.

This new version is not just a complete redesign of the user interface, but also includes several improvements on the technology of the engine that allows Trabber Radar to collect more flight fares in close dates than before.

Regarding the user inteface, flights are displayed in a horizontal bar format to simplify the display of departure and arrival dates, but also to clearly show the total days of your travel. This information was not easily accessible in the previous table format.

Above of the flight bars, we have placed a set of controls to enable the selection of specific dates for your departure and arrival.

On this new user inteface, we also keep the old table version that is accessible through the link “See in a table

On the other side, the updated engine provides access to additional flight information that we were not considering before. Aditionally, we have extended Trabber Radar to new airlines and now is able to collect fares on close dates for new airlines websites such as Iberia, Air France, SAS, LOT and Air Asia.

The engine improvements also benefits the quality of the fare suggestion system that is displayed on Trabber search results.
