10/25/2011 – Travel search site Hipmunk has added another wonderful new feature to help you book your travel plans: Google Calendar integration. The new integration will allow users to check their flight (or train) listings against their personal schedule within Google Calendar to determine the best possible times to book a trip, Hipmunk announced today.
While other travel search sites allow you to import your travel schedule into Google Calendar, Hipmunk is the first that lets you actually compare flight times with what’s already on your schedule. It’s just one of the many small perks that makes Hipmunk so much more convenient than competitors (like Orbits and Expedia). In addition to Google Calendar integration, Hipmunk aggregates ticket fares from airlines and allows people to sort them by time, price, flight duration, airline as well as “agony” — Hipmunk’s algorithm for discovering the most enjoyable flights.
