Priceline vs Cheapoair vs Orbitz vs Travelocity
Who is the best OTA? Are there any differences in tariffs between agencies like Expedia, Travelocity, Priceline or do they all draw the same results from the Global Distribution Systems. In the following we will test 5 of the most important OTA' s in a coincidental row of the world.
We' ve always claimed that you should try to get several offers from different carriers and on-line agencies when looking for the lowest fare. Of course, many in the USA turn to the'big 3' on-line agencies - Expedia, Travelocity and Orbitz - to perform a flightsearch.
Indeed, these 3 all belonged to the same entity (Expedia Inc.) after the recent consolidations in the sector. EXDEDIA - has Travelocity, Orbitz, CheapTickets, Hotwire and eBookers. Priceeline - own kayak, bookings. com, Cheapflights, Agoda and Momondo. -CheapoAir - a large air travel agency. He also has a flying reservation machine and possesses Seatguru, the airfield rating page and AirfareWatchdog.
Google - is a gambler who has reinvested in ITA software and provides a Google Flight browser. Let's try the on-line agencies to see who comes back with the cheapest economics (bus) category round voyage price for a 1 weeks journey of 2 mths. Below this happens for 16 coincidentally allocated town couples, which range from U.S. to global destinations.
The only thing we look for is the best fare and we don't care about the best airlines, luggage charges or the best possible connection. Of course, if we were to book these trips, we would have to take them into account. The test was conducted in June 2017 and we indicate the prizes received at the same time by Expedia, Orbitz, Travelocity, Priceline and Cheapoair.
Expedia: $216 (border)Orbitz: $216 (border)Cruising speed: $216 (border)Price line: $216 (border)Cheapoair: $230 (border)Notes: It is interesting that Expedia came back cheaper for all U.S. internal travel, while Cheapoair was the most costly. Expedia: $1,045 (Aer Lingus over Dublin)Orbitz: $1,045 (Aer Lingus over Dublin)Travelocity: $1,045 (Aer Lingus over Dublin)Priceline: $1,045 (Aer Lingus over Dublin)Cheapoair: $909 (Supersaver Tariff - unfamiliar airline) Notes:
Kaapoair also proposed WOW Air ($857) on alternate appointments. Priceline's outward trips would take 24 hrs, there was also an 11-hour $530 one. Again, Checkoair proposed a different date for the Turkic language, $852. 16 air raids (a restricted record) have shown that there are still some discrepancies in air fares for the major on-line tourist agencies.
The one thing the agent can be very good at is to offer a fare that consists of several alignments. There are also more unreleased "Super Saver" tariffs, where air travel data is held back until after reservation. It is interesting that Expedia and then Priceline have the best head-to-head record, but Cheapoair has the cheapest all-in-one.
The Cheapoair was also the lower value when we conducted a similar test in 2015. Though Cheapoair was a bit more costly on our test on the US national circuits, it was more competetive on the world. Actually over $400 less than Expedia on the Toronto-Santiago line and $136 less on Chicago-Frankfurt.
Lastly, please notice some price differentials between Expedia Inc Agent - Expedia itself is slightly less expensive than Travelocity and Orbitz in our test.
