Traveling with friends and family just got easier. Flights With Friends is adding hotels to its group trip planning service. Getting small groups with different budgets, opinions, and tech savvy organized is simple using Flights With Friends.
Most people begin their travel searches at the office, so they aren't in the same room with the other travelers in their group. Long email chains, miscommunication, and frustration are usually the result. Flights With Friends brings all the group members onto the same page, literally. Users start their search and then invite the other group members. Travelers set shared search preferences, see the same flights and hotels, pin the ones they like, chat, and know when others on the trip have booked in real-time.
Flights With Friends has partnered with Expedia to provide one of the largest inventory of hotels along with their price match guarantee. Flight search, which has helped thousands of users since it launched in August, checks 150 different sites so users can be confident that they are finding the cheapest price. Flights With Friends is a bootstrapped startup based in Oakland, California that began in early 2012. The team who is working hard to make traveling with small groups easy comes from notable startups like Yelp, Votizen, Geek Squad, and Coupa.
