What is an aggregator?
In the context of travel, an aggregator is a website that compares hundreds of OTAs for flights, hotels and car hire. With the information collected, they help users locate the best deals and cheapest prices.
Skyscanner, Kayak and Momondo are examples of aggregators.
What is the difference between a travel aggregator and an OTA?
An aggregator does not sell any flight tickets or hotel stays. They simply fetch data from OTAs and list them for you to decide who to book with.
Which travel aggregator is the best?
Here on Secret Flying, we usually divert our users to Skyscanner to view the flight deal we have found.
This is due to two reasons, price and ease of use. Skyscanner consistently offers the cheapest prices as they scan the most OTAs for every route. It is also very easy to navigate their website, with search times being significantly shorter than its competitors.
