What Are AirFare Watchdog Fare Alerts? 

Fare Alerts are probably the most helpful of all the Watchdog features. They are the ability to set up airfare alert queries. Once set up, the dealhounds sniff out the deals for these specific queries, then AirfareWatchdog sends you an e-mail alert when a deal is located. Here’s examples of each type of Fare Alert and how you can use it.

1. City-to-City Fare Alerts – Have a specific destination in mind? City-to-City Alerts e-mails you route-specific alerts for round trip airfare deals between your two chosen cities. What’s cool about this feature is you can set up several destination queries. For example – if you can depart or arrive at more than one airport, track airfare for each one! You might just find that driving a 100 miles to another airport can save you $100’s of dollars.

Here’s an example of a search for somebody who lives in Philadelphia, whose trip interests include travel to Anchorage, Alaska, and Lima Peru. Two other major airports are within 100 miles of Philadelphia, his departure airport – Newark, NJ and Baltimore, MD. By setting up City-to-City Fare Alerts for all three departure airports, this traveler has now extended his options for sniffing out the best airfare price. And, he also has airfare being tracked for two different trip destinations, maximizing his potential of finding a lower airfare.

2. Anywhere That’s Cheap Alerts – It’s exactly as it says – receive the cheapest round trip airfare Alerts based upon your local city or cities. Add your cities, even cities of friends and family who want to travel. Help them find those low fares too!

3. Meet Me in St. Louis – Have a family reunion with people flying to one destination from different airports? Set up a “meet me here” Alert for each airport your group might be traveling to. Note – this is also a very handy comparison tool if you have the opportunity to fly out of different airports. Add several airports to help the dealhounds sniff out the best pricing.

4. AirfareWatchdog Updates – Sign up to receive Updates and the Watchdog will occasionally send you money saving ideas. Be on the inside scoop of some great deals.

      Thanks Carolyn, glad you found this site useful. I’ve been using them for at least the past two years, and I have been able to find flights that I might have otherwise overlooked. I like to use them for the “I just don’t know where to go” times. I’ve been tipped off to some pretty good fares this way.

    Wow Carol,

    That’s a really cool site and I agree with Carolyn, I can’t believe it’s free. I will definitely be bookmarking this one to come back to. Looks like I’ll be going to Nashville next month so I need to start searching for me the best fare now.

    I came here at just the right time. Thanks so much!

      Hi Adrienne, thanks for stopping by! Glad I could provide you some insight on a very handy travel tool. I’ve been using Airfarewatchdog for over a year now, tracking several different “bucket list” trips. Scored tix to Alaska last October off a tip of a drop in price. They were less than airfare to Utah! Good luck, I hope you find some decent airfare to Nashville. Prices are running high for air, but still deals are out there. Carol

      Hi Sylvianne, and thanks for stopping by. So glad I can help – also check out my post on Hipmunk from last week. You might also find them useful for pinpointing lower airfare. But I really like the ability to put in my location requests with AirfareWatchdog and let them “hunt” for me! Happy travels, and thanks again for jumping over here from Adrienne. She’s wonderful, isn’t she!
