We’ve partnered with KAYAK, so you can now compare buses, trains and flights with just one search.
We believe you can fly — on Wanderu!
First buses, then trains, now planes: We’re excited to announce that flights are now available on Wanderu alongside bus and train travel options. Using Wanderu, you can compare and book bus, train and plane tickets to thousands of destinations across North America and Europe, all in one convenient place.
The introduction of flights is made possible through a partnership with fellow Boston area travel company KAYAK. Wanderu’s flights search results are powered by KAYAK’s metasearch technology that scours other travel sites to find the right flights, granting Wanderu users access to the best deals across all three major modes of transportation. In turn, KAYAK users will be offered bus and train travel alternatives in their flight searches, courtesy of Wanderu’s expansive database of ground travel options.
This joint effort significantly increases Wanderu’s city-to-city coverage, turning it into the metasearch platform with the most comprehensive roster of travel options across all three major modes of transportation, as illustrated by the numbers below:
“Ever since we launched Wanderu back in 2013, our ultimate goal has been to develop a one-stop shop for travelers, where they can easily find and compare all available travel options to get where they need to go. With the addition of flights, we are one giant step closer to making that a reality,” said Polina Raygorodskaya, co-founder and CEO of Wanderu.
“I’ve always found it frustrating to jump from tab to tab and manually compare flights to bus and train options. I believe that having them all in the same search results, and being able to filter based on factors like price, departure time, trip duration and amenities, will make it much easier for travelers to find the journey that fits their needs in the best possible way,” Polina added.
“Travelers don’t have an easy way to compare the full range of transportation options available to them, especially on shorter distance routes,” said Anthony Salomone, Product Manager at KAYAK. “Through our integration with Wanderu, we’re making it easier for travelers to find and compare all options in one search, so you can find the best deals and design a trip that best fits your needs.”
Flights on Wanderu are currently in BETA mode as we continue to expand our trip inventory, integrate more routing options and further enhance the user experience.
You can now find and compare bus, train and flight options in the same search on Wanderu.
You can search for buses, trains and flights either on wanderu.com or through our app for iOS and Android. As always, using the Wanderu platform is completely free, and you will never be charged any extra fees for booking your trip with us.
Maybe you’re wondering whether it’s cheaper to fly or take the train from Boston to New York. Perhaps you’re planning a cross-country journey, and want to see what all your travel options are. Whatever trip you’re looking to take, Wanderu is here to make sure you find the very best deal.
