When you're buying a flight, do you ever feel that twinge of stress when you're about to click the "purchase now" button? How do you know the price won't just drop tomorrow? Or maybe you found a great price but you're worried the price will jump before you have a chance to run it by your travel companions? The airline's definitely not giving you any assurances. It's too bad you can't use a crystal ball while buying airfare.
Or can you?
Alexander Mans is the CEO and founder of Flyr, a new website that predicts for you whether or not a the price of a flight might go up or down, to help you feel more confident about knowing whether or not to do what just about every guest on this show says: Buy that ticket!
Alexander was born in the Netherlands and has been a computer programmer from childhood. So when the time came for him to move overseas to San Francisco to try his hand in the startup world, it felt like a natural step.
Three years ago he started on Flyr and today it’s live and ready for you to use. I’ve been a fan of this tool all throughout its beta, so I asked Alexander to come on the show and discuss his background, travel, and how Flyr can alleviate the stress of purchasing airfare.
Flyr, forecast your airfare before you book.
