Pintrips lets travellers “pin” flights they like from trusted travel sites. Those pinned flights instantly show up side by side in a shareable dashboard.

 

For obsessive searchers and deal hounds, flights pinned will always reflect the current market price, eliminating the frustrations of trying to find exact flights again, only to discover a price increase or a sold-out flight.

 

“People are addicted to shopping around online to find the best price and flight schedule,” Pintrips chief executive Stephen Gotlieb says.

 

“We make sure no one gets just a partial picture. Pintrips empowers you to take control of your trip planning and make better decisions by doing the tedious work for you.”

 

There’s no shortage of travel-related concepts centred on price, so there’s obviously a demand for them. Why not develop your own concept?
