Finding the right flight is unpleasant, to be polite about it. Particularly if you’re flexible at all for destination or dates. Some sites have been improving, but it has been a very slow evolution. Kiwi.com, however, has made big progress and has some great features that I’m really enjoying.
One of the best aspects of Kiwi is that, unlike many of the meta search websites (those that just aggregate deals from other websites), they will process the purchase when you check out. In this way, they seem similar to an online travel agency (like Expedia) who processes the actual payment. However, they also have more options than the large OTAs, including the cheap, low-fare airlines. In this way they’re similar to meta search websites (like Kayak).
I’ve found deals and connections on Kiwi that were not shown on any of the other options like Expedia or Kayak. While prices are fairly similar between Kiwi and other sites, there are just more options. My favorite features, though, are the flexible search options.
Search by date range
You can search by date or date range. For instance, you can search for the best prices for a range of dates like from the 7th to the 20th. This will show the lowest prices as well as being able to filter by number of stops.
Search for multiple destinations
Not sure where you want to go? You can search for all deals, by a region (Europe, Central Europe), Country (Spain, Colombia) or for a list of locations. When you know that you want to head to Europe and visit Madrid, London and Paris you can list out all of these cities and Kiwi will find the best deals for all of the items on your list.
The Kiwi app
Because you purchase your ticket through Kiwi they have a record of your flights and you can access them all in the app. The user interface is as smooth, or even better, than that of the website, which is a huge win in and of itself.
