Are there any online services that will notify a person via email if an airfare drops
 
Are there any online services that will notify a person via email if an airfare drops to a price level that the user/flyer has specified?

Thank you.

Travelocity FareWatcher is one that I have used in the past.

as mike says, use the travelocity farewatcher.

go to travelocity.com, and set up and account. enter the city pair you want along with the price you want to be notified of, and they'll send you an email letting you know when the price goes down!

for all i know, orbitz or expedia may do this as well, but the travelocity folks are terrific and their email system works :)

Yahoo also has one. Problem I find is you can't specify dates, airlines or routing. I tried this for a while and found that by the time I got the email (to be fair, read the email), the fare was either gone, or useless. A hypothetical example would be "ewr-las". I'd get an email for, say, $111 r/t. Great fare! Then, I find it's only on a Tuesday, return on Thursday, 3 stops on an airline that I don't care to accumulate miles on.

I've found that subscribing to various airlines vacation special emails gives a good indication of current *reasonable* competitive pricing.

I have mine set up with TRAVELOCITY -- but half the time the fares don't exist :rolleyes: Very hit & miss.

Orbitz's Deal Detector lets you watch a specific itinerary.

Just wondering if anyone had any new suggestions.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Are there any new services (websites) other than those mentioned above that do a good job of notifying people if prices drop to a specified level?

Thanks.

Thanks.

The cutting-edge FareCompare.com recently introduced email alerts. More information here.

Thank you boazs. I'll definitely give this a try.

boazs, is there a way to receive only notifications of fare information for specific destinations or does farecompare always provide at least 50 destinations?

Travelocity Farewatcher used to send me fare alerts on international fares. I've just updated my city pairs, and am now getting a message saying it isn't possible for international. Is that a permanent change?
