rtwflights vs Kayak

 

Interesting report from Bootsnall released this week. Conclusion being the Kayak was cheaper when it came to RTWs. We were a little taken aback as this didn't seem to be our experience. Kayak are excellent for point to point fares (we like them) but not generally for multi-stops or RTWs. So we thought we'd do a little experiment. It's pretty unscientific but we took 5 of our biggest selling RTW routes and did a price comparison search leaving in May (low season). We also took a screen grab of the results. Some really rather surprising results...
