Tripit and Yapta join forces on fare refunds

Tripit has joined forces with airfare tracking service Yapta to enable US travellers to receive an alert if they are eligible for a refund or credit through an airline’s guaranteed pricing policy.

The service works by travellers forwarding flight confirmations to Tripit, which can then be tracked by Yapta.

Figures from Yapta show seat prices on 45% of flights have decreased before departure with about 15% of these flights eligible for a refund or credit.

The company also claims to have demonstrated savings of more than US$250 million for its members.

In July, Tripit integrated its travel planning service with IBM Lotus Notes enabling millions of users to access the application via a widget.

The company has also opened up its service to users outside the US in October allowing travellers to monitor European flights, receive alerts and search for alternatives.
