New: Narrow down hotels by geography or chain

Last week we made your hotel search faster. This week we’ve made it even easier to narrow down hotels to just the ones you want. Firstly, you’ll see a button at the top of hotel search results like this: Click that button, and you’ll see a rectangle appear right in the map: Anything inside the gray…

New: Hotel speedups, heatmap improvements, and better location searching

It was only a few months ago that we added our awesome hotel searching feature. Today we’ve made it even better. First: speed! When you run a hotel search, it’s now faster—and we show you a progress bar with a dancing Hipmunk so you can see how much waiting is left. It’s also quicker to…

New: See first and business class legs at a glance

If you’re a high-roller, you know there can be a big difference between first and business class. But sometimes, when you search for either first or business on Hipmunk, we also show you results for the other one so you can compare. To make sure there’s no confusion, we’ve added indicators to each leg of…

New: Improved Calendars, Pre-Populated Forms

Your wishes in action: more usability improvements. Improved Calendars It’s now easier to tell which date you’re selecting on the calendar—the date you hover over is color-coded to match either the “depart” or “return” field. For those times when you’re taking a very short trip, you can now select the same date for both departing…

New: Hoverable Sliders, Fixed Time Legend

Time for another round of usability improvements. Hoverable Sliders One of our most powerful features is our graphical sliders. But we’ve heard that many people don’t realize these sliders exist. Now, when you hover over a slider—or even near it—you’ll get a clear visual cue that the slider is draggable. Fixed Time Legend Previously, when you…

The Tab Bar (Hipmunk Power User Series, Part 2)

Unless you know exactly where and when you’re traveling, you probably do several searches before you book your flight. We know, since we do too. Other flight search sites make this hard. You either have to change your search—and lose all your existing results—or you have to open a bunch of different windows or tabs,…

New: Multi-City Searching, Autocomplete, and Glanceable Times

We’ve been listening to your feedback, and are happy to announce three much-requested features. Multi-City Searching If you’re going multiple places on your next trip, Hipmunk can help you find what you’re looking for. We’ve added a multi-city feature to our search page, shown here: You can browse multi-city results the same way you’ve always…

The Sliders (Hipmunk Power User Series, Part 1)

The “i” in the Hipmunk logo is capped with a triangle for a reason. Black triangles are the way to interact with one of Hipmunk’s coolest features: restricting the departure and arrival times of flights. On the results page, you’ll find one black triangle at the earliest departure time. Just drag the slider inward to…
