Travel planner Kayak Pro goes free as Apple’s ‘App of the Week’

With summer coming up, it’s the perfect time to start planning your vacation. As a result it’s also the perfect time to download Kayak Pro, the smart hotel, flight, and car search and booking app.

This iOS app makes everything from booking flights to accommodation a straightforward, hassle-free task, with hundreds of available options and a ton of smart in-app features. These include a fight tracker to check that your flight is on time, price alerts regarding cheap destination tickets, and even maps to help you find your way around airport terminals.

Making Kayak Pro even better is the fact that it’s just been named Apple’s latest free “App of the Week,” which means what is normally a $0.99 purchase can be downloaded for absolutely nothing from the App Store.

This isn’t the first time Kayak Pro has gone free — with zero cost offers also taking place in August 2012, October 2013, and December 2013. While that pattern suggests there may be another free window later this year, or in 2015, it’s still well worth jumping on the bandwagon while you have the chance.

It’s a great app, and my Cult of Mac brother Charlie Sorrel in particular is a total convert: using it whenever he has to flee from country to country. (At time of writing, he’s free too — although that’s a little different.)

Kayak Pro is available for all iOS devices, running iOS 7.0 and later.
