Have you ever worked with a pushy travel agent?
Don’t worry, that’s not Travel Pirates.
Travel Pirates is a completely free and consumer-friendly search engine. They find the best deals without a bias or hidden agenda in sight. Their goal is to be your #1 Travel Resource. In order to do that, they seem to put the customer's interests first. Ultimately, they want you to have an awesome vacation so you’ll book more trips, using their search engine as your guide.
Travel Pirates knows that the two biggest decisions in planning a vacation are usually hotel and airfare. These are the first things people typically search for because they can be super expensive! The quality of your transportation service and accommodations can also make or break your travel experience. If you’ve ever stayed in a dirty hotel or been on a terrible flight, you know what we’re talking about.
Travel Pirates does the searching for you to land the perfect vacation package. Their experienced deal-hunters are constantly searching for primo prices around the globe. They pride their service on saving you money and time, making vacation planning a breeze.
How does Travel Pirates work?
Planning a trip by yourself can be overwhelming, especially when you’re heading to a place you’ve never been before. Travel Pirates walks you through step-by-step, starting with the big stuff. They base your search results on what’s most important to you. Do you want to plan a specific trip, at a specific time, to a specific place?
No problem. They’ll show you what’s available today.
If you choose to be a little more flexible about the destination or the dates (or if you just aren’t exactly sure what you want yet) they can suggest options that will best fit your budget. Sometimes you just need to get away. Travel Pirates can help you figure out the details while you search.
Everyone deserves a vacation once in a while. Using Travel Pirates’ straightforward site or the Travel Pirates App will get you started. All it takes is a few simple clicks. The landing page presents you with a quick search option:
The type of information they’ll want to know includes:
- Where are you now?
- Where are you going?
- For how long?
- With who?
If you can answer all (or even just a couple) of these questions, Travel Pirates can start searching for cheap flights and accommodations right away. The results are brought up instantly on your screen, no sign-ups or email subscriptions required. Prices are clearly laid out at the top of each option, along with a photo to help you picture yourself THERE.
The best thing about their search engine is that they don’t force you to give more information than necessary.
Don’t you hate not being able to conduct a simple search without filling out a bunch of information? We do too. Travel Pirates seems to understand that you may be in the very beginning stages of planning a vacation. Or, maybe you want to keep your options open and just see what’s out there? Travel Pirates is a good way to help you get started quickly, without the hassle. Even if you’re not sure which airports are nearby, Travel Pirates will generate some suggestions based on the location so you don’t need to do a separate search.
In fact, if you want to skip the questions all together, you can just see what’s available by clicking on the “Show Me Some Ideas” button. This is a good way to get inspiration when you don’t have something in mind yet.
After you type in as much or as little information as you want, take your time browsing the results at your leisure. If you click on a package, they provide useful tips along with comparison pricing to a vacation with similar specifications that was booked by popular travel sites.
If you’re not in a rush, you can come back in a week or two and search for new deals for the same trip. Remember, they update the site by the minute, showing the best options available at the time of your search. There’s no pressure to book. They just want you to be aware of the possibilities. When you’re ready to book a deal, Travel Pirates performs another widespread double-check to ensure that you have chosen the best deal. They offer a “Price Drop Protection” for free as well (see the notice on the top of the screen).
Does Travel Pirates Specialize in Certain Types of Trips?
They specialize in all types of trips. At Travel Pirates, they understand that for some people, the ideal vacation is at an all-inclusive Hawaii resort with a tropical drink and a tiny umbrella. Perhaps hiking and camping through a remote village, or weaving through the crowds in a bustling city, is more your style. Their options range from high-end luxury trips to local weekend deals (and everything in between).
Looking for a Little Extra Help?
You may want to check elsewhere. Some of their packages feature deals beyond just flights and accommodations. This is not necessarily their specialty though, so it’s not promised for every trip. If you are looking for tours, excursions, dining or certain experiences, they can point you in the right direction, sometimes. You may want to use another site to get additional information beyond basic flights and accommodations.
