About Momondo
They are not a travel agency, they are not an airline, they are not a booking-portal and they don’t sell flights.

They are small, unbiased and offer the widest search and price comparison service around. Their vision is to give our users total price transparency without any catches. Consumers can use Momondo to search and compare fares across travel agency sites, national carriers and low-cost airlines. They do not sell flights, they just show you where to get the best deals and link through to the booking site where users can place their booking directly with the supplier at no extra cost.

How do they have such a large range of airfares?
Well, unlike other travel search engines they don’t rely on a small number of airline-fare-databases that are dependent on others supplying the information. In their opinion these databases are incomplete as they don’t contain enough fares or airlines.

For this reason they have developed their own technology and built more than 700 ‘robots’ or ‘crawlers’. Each robot is uniquely built to perform a search on a specific site – just like a person would do it. The robots then arrange the information they collect and return it to Momondo.

This gives them a huge advantage over our competitors because they can include the big international airlines as well as the small local suppliers who often aren’t in the databases used by other comparison sites.

Feedback from their users becomes even more useful as they can include the suppliers they suggest. Because their technology is built in-house they are more independent and they can easily adjust and increase their searches.
