Web Buzz: Dealscoopr.com tracks deals at your favorite destinations

The site remembers your home airport and links easily to ideas you might not have thought of. But where's the save button?

April 13, 2014|Jen Leo

Here's a website that can help you keep tabs on travel deals for your favorite destinations around the globe.

Name: http://www.Dealscoopr.com

What it does: It's a search tool for discovering travel deals, including airfare and hotels.

What's hot: The site remembers your home airport, so even if you don't like what you see on your main dashboard of "favorite" destinations, additional travel inspiration is just a click away. On the left nav bar you'll find topic lists such as "most amazing beaches," "top honeymoon destinations," "foodie cities," "family & kid friendly cities" and more. When you select a list, up pop flight deals from your home airport to a dozen locations. I found the flexible search bar particularly useful when trying to nab travel deals. Dealscoopr lets you select the departing month, then choose from a variety of start dates (such as traveling on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday, or leaving on any Wednesday in the month) and the approximate trip duration.

What's not: It's terrific to have a stable of favorite destinations always show on your deals page, but I also wanted to be able to save and compare individual trips. I tried, but couldn't see an option for that. However, according to Dealscoopr, users soon will be able to save and track individual flights.
