Launched in February 2017, the company’s fare alerts help travelers find the cheapest dates to fly in the approaching days or weeks
GoLastMinute.com has surpassed a half-million subscribers to its last-minute fare alerts, which launched in February 2017. The free service allows travelers to see the cheapest fares for departures in the coming days or weeks, from over a hundred airline and booking sites. Alerts include one-way and round-trip fares for up to five routes.
The fare alerts are the newest feature from GoLastMinute.com designed to benefit last-minute travelers. The site, which launched in 2011, also features a search tool to compare fares across multiple travel sites, as well as last-minute offers for flights, packages, cruises and hotels from top booking sites, picked and verified by editors. Fare alerts complement GoLastMinute’s email newsletters, which have garnered over 5 million total email subscribers since 2011.
“Immediately after launching our last-minute fare alert emails last year, we received an overwhelmingly positive response that is still going strong,” said Dave Boehl, CEO of GraphicBomb, publisher of GoLastMinute.com. “It’s thanks to our close partnership with Skyscanner that GoLastMinute fare alerts have been so loved by our last-minute traveler community.”
