Travel meta-search site Momondo is introducing combined tickets, where one-way tickets from different carriers are combined into a cheaper return trip.
Users will be presented two combined one-way tickets when searching for flights if the combination of two one-way tickets from different suppliers is cheaper than a return ticket from one.
This gives users more opportunities to find cheap return trips, typically on routes operated by low-cost airlines, the company claims.
Momondo used the example of the London-Berlin route, where the lowest return with a single airline is £79 but buying two one-way tickets brings a saving of £20.
Chief executive Pia Vemmelund said: ”We collect millions of prices on flight tickets every day, and now our technology makes it possible to combine flight tickets across suppliers. This can give significant savings for those users, who don’t mind booking tickets with different suppliers.”
The company is also extending hotel search in collaboration with HotelsCombined.
The extended hotel search with the hotel price comparison site gives users the opportunity to search and compare millions of hotel offers worldwide on Momondo.
