[dropcap size=big]T[/dropcap]ravel search engine TripStreak has unveiled a ‘smart’ beta website that recommends flights based on your personal preferences, including frequent flyer miles.
According to a press release, users can rank their travel priorities, and then, using its unique algorithm, TripStreak displays flights based on that data and attaches a TripScore to each result to help users quickly determine the best airline for them.
The LA-based company has developed software that makes searching for flights far more intuitive compared with regular search engines. Here are the main differences:
Rank and save flight priorities: Select what is most important to you: lowest cost, fewer connections, layover duration, miles, favourite airlines.
Maximize frequent flyer miles: Thanks to a partnership with 30K.com, the only company having developed technology that can compute the number of frequent flyer miles for any flight, TripStreak has the ability to show award miles, status miles and segments for your itinerary. Additionally, you can store frequent flyer memberships in your account.
Quickly view the most relevant details: TripStreak clears the clutter and offers an easy-to-use interface to make travel planning easier. To get more detail, you can expand the results.
See each flight’s TripScore: Each flight result has an associated number, called a TripScore. The higher the number, the more appropriate it is to your needs. The TripScore is calculated based on the priority rankings in your profile.
“We have what other travel search engines don’t: the ability to truly personalise,” says TripStreak founder Charles Ralston.
He says: “No two travellers are the same. With TripStreak, you get the results based on what you like. You get to choose if miles are more important to you, or if you really just want the fewest connections.
“We’re bringing personalisation to travel search. Our technology allows consumers to dictate their experience by setting parameters ignored by other travel sites.”
