Most online flight search tools offer quick results about flight schedules and pricing. But this also means that they display bland, boring, and unorganized flight listings. Fortunately, Hipmunk is a great flight search engine alternative that offers visually-oriented flight schedule results, thus making them more organized and easier to understand.
Searching for flights in Hipmunk uses the same procedures of the traditional flight search engines: you need to input the information that you are looking for in a flight such as the place where you are coming from and the place that you need to go to, the departure date, the return date (which is optional), the number of persons involved, the travel class, and your preferred airline.
The results will be laid out in a graphic timeline chart so you can visually compare the schedule of flights. Clicking on the graphic representation of the flight will display more information about it including the link for booking it.
In addition, you can also arrange the flight schedule results based on price, stops, departure time, arrival time, duration, and a category that the makers of the website created which is agony. It refers to the combined function of price, duration, and number of stops, or simply how inconvenient and uncomfortable a particular flight is.
