Sites like Expedia, Travelocity, Kayak and Priceline help travelers compare and find the best deals and lowest prices on luxuries like flights, hotels and rental cars. Now, there’s a new site called DealRay.
Here’s how it works. You join their club and get alerted instantly (via text of other type of phone alert) when flights get steeply discounted due to an error in the booking system.
This is a great opportunity for those who always have a bag packed and can travel at a moment’s notice. For families, if you have a flexible work schedule, it might be worth your time to check it out.
According to their FAQs, it’s not meant to be a daily deal site, but an occasional deal that has the best instant fares. Currently, they’re focusing on flights that originate (fly out of) the US. So you could, in fact, score an epic deal to a destination across the border or pond.
Here’s a testimonial from one of their members:
DealRay is the best investment I’ve made, the monthly membership has saved me over $1,700 on flights for me and my family. – Jess R.
The service costs $9.99 a month, but you can get the first two months free. Would you try it?
