momondo is a World class travel site with a fine collection of FREE services
that helps you plan your next travel. We come recommended by the fine people
at New York Times, CNN, CBS, Daily Telegraph, Frommers and many more.
We’re not a travel agency, we’re not an airline, we’re
not a booking-portal and we don't sell flight tickets.
We just search fares across the web - exactly as you do when hunting your
next flight. The only difference is that our robots search hundreds of
sites simultaneously to give you an overview within seconds.
Momondo is a Danish initiative founded by experienced people from the
travel industry and skilled programmers with a passion for new technology,
travelling the world and meeting new people.
Our site was launched in September 2006 as a flight search engine only.
We were small and unknown but knew that we had a unique technology that
could bring people to all the globe’s buzzing metropoles and great
little places - at low costs.
Today we have introduced our city guides, become multilingual plus added
hotel and car rental search on the site. Many dedicated developers and
travel afficionados have joined us and are doing an outstanding job in
achieving our goal.
Though we’ve been around a few years now, our love for travelling
and meeting new people is everything but declining. The better we get to
know our users and all the colourful places they share with each other
on our site the more fun we have and the more passionate we get.
Colouring the World together
Some of the best places in town are also among the most difficult to find,
but with our crisp new city guide you can explore great little places shared
by fellow citizens and coloured by their ambience.
We invite you to
take part in a fun and new way to discover and share places around the
We often associate colours with moods. We feel blue or grey. We associate
red with love. Green with fun and play and turquoise with tranquility.
Each colour helps us to identify with the related ambience and get us in
the mood – by colouring places in our guide we help you navigate
by your mood and discover great coloured places - shared by fellow citizens.
Select a city and your colour. If you’ve decided on hot-pink, a
map of clubs, restaurants, shops and hotels will appear which invite the
vibrant and trendy side of you to join the party. Maybe you’re in
the mood for a little romance with your special someone, then navigate
to the cosy red. Travelling with kids? Shades of green would be your choice.
It’s a great new way to share and discover places and make you feel
at home wherever you go The ambience navigation was made to invite everyone
in the loop and take part of the cities they visit. The scene is set for
us to follow our mission:
We want to change who’s who…
Who's a Londoner? Who's a New Yorker? Who's a Copenhagener? We want to
change who's who. That’s our mission. And it’s simple. Anyone
being in a place is part of the place. We are wherever we are.
One day you may be a New Yorker, the next a Stockholmer. Anyone who comes
to Copenhagen is a Copenhagener. A backpacker from Amsterdam, a family
from Delhi or a student from Arizona - they're all Copenhageners whilst
in Copenhagen. They deserve to be in the loop and discover the hidden gems
of the city. That’s why we have created our city guides. For you
to discover and share places with locals and fellow citizens.
We do not wish to create yet-another-guide that patronises visitors as
tourist voyeurs - viewing cities from the outside or following the tourist
routes behind a camera lense.
We want you to discover great little places by following your mood and
navigating by vibrant and colourful ambiences . We invite you to be a citizen
of anywhere. Join us, and be part of the loop. Feel at home wherever you
Why use Momondo?
We’re small, unbiased and we do the widest search and price comparison.
Our vision is to give our users total price transparency without any catches.
We find and compare prices from +700 websites. To our knowledge Momondo
is the search engine with the most complete coverage and we are constantly
adding new routes and airlines to our searches.
But how do we do it? Well, unlike most other travel search engines we
don’t rely on a few airline-fare-databases that are dependent on
others supplying them with information. In our opinion these databases
are incomplete as they don’t contain enough fares and airlines. That’s
why we have developed our own technology.
We’ve build more than 700 ‘robots’ or ‘crawlers’.
Each robot is uniquely built to perform a search on a specific site - just
like a person would do it. The robots arrange the information they collect
and return it to Momondo.
This gives us a huge advantage because we can include the big international
airlines as well as the small local suppliers who often aren’t in
the databases used by others. Feedback from our users becomes even more
useful as we can include the suppliers you suggest. Because our technology
is built in-house we are more independent and we can easily adjust and
increase our searches.
That’s how we do it and that’s how you actually search for
the best offers on hundreds of sites with one single search on Momondo.
Our programmers are doing a great job
Travel Search Engines are hard to build as their web-crawlers need to
fill in information (say destination, departure dates etc) in order to
access information (timetables and prices). Furthermore the crawlers need
to understand the information in the same manner as humans in order to
sort and transform them into compiled result-sets.
To our knowledge Momondo has the most complete coverage of low-cost airlines
in Europe. Our programmers are eating lollipops all day long but they are
also are doing a great job: Programming a bunch of robots that send trip-requests
to airlines and agencies and grab the prices in order to present them for
easy price comparison.
It’s free to use momondo - and if you value our service - send us
your encouragement - and we will reply by continuously developing new features.
It's a jungle, so where to book your travel
You can book your flight ticket directly on an airline-website or you
can book your ticket on one of the many travel agencies or booking sites
on the Web.
Momondo searches across them all - travel agency sites, national carriers
and low-cost airlines to present a consolidated view of the market place.
Sometimes it’s best to book your flight directly from the airline;
at other times you may get the cheapest fare via an online travel agency
- as they purchase in large volumes.
However travel agencies typically only offer flight tickets from national
carriers and not from low-cost airlines.
This makes it time-consuming and difficult for consumers to track down
the best fares – searching around on airline and travel agency sites.
Use Momondo to search and compare fares across travel agency sites, national
carriers and low-cost airlines. We do not sell flight tickets – we
just show you where to get the best deals and link you to the booking site
- for you to place your booking directly at the supplier at no extra cost.
