Daeyel wrote:With all this stuff you are making me aware of, I must wonder, is Google the new Walmart? Can they seamlessly weave themselves into the fabric of American life as Walmart has managed to do? I think they can, and in far more areas than Walmart can. The next 20 years will be interesting to watch.

bagpiper wrote:Leave a day sooner or later, return a day early or a few days later, maybe save enough on airfare to pay for an extra day of hotel and rental car, etc.
bagpiper wrote:Heck, include full trip planning with hotel and rental cars and then optimize price across all three.
bagpiper wrote:Is there any tool to predict whether prices for a given trip are likely to go down at some point in the future? If I'm looking to book a trip 3 to 6 months out it is entirely possible that price for that trip will drop between here and there before rising dramatically. Some kind of tracking and predicting on costs for the flight booked in the future would be really cool, especially with some kind of reminder or alert tied into gmail and google calendars.
divegeek wrote:For trips of a given length (number of days), it provides this. Just click on the calendar to expand the chart with all the bars... those show you the lowest available prices if you depart on the indicated day and return the specified number of days later. To see how this changes with different lengths I just increase or decrease the length of the trip, then look at the bar chart again. So you have to kind of manually search the different-length options, but when I'm traveling on vacation I typically know what my duration boundaries are (based on how much vacation time I have available), so there usually aren't a lot of different lengths to examine.
