Chrome extension that automatically finds lower hotel rates

Friday, October 5, 2018

Scout challenges the claims made by popular travel sites that their hotel rates are the best you're going to find anywhere. Scout is a Chrome extension that activates when you are on a hotel page on a travel site such as Expedia, Priceline or Scout looks at the lowest rate being advertised and then searches in the background to see if it can find a lower direct rate. Scout has special access to lower rates that are only available on the hotels' own websites and so it can often find you a great deal. If it finds a lower rate, Scout automatically displays a notification along with a button that takes you to the hotel's own site to book the lower rate and get additional perks of booking direct (e.g. points, free wifi, easier cancellation).
