About Kayak Explorer

A few decades ago, when the democratization of booking travel online online, consumers suddenly had the ability to see flight and hotel prices via the internet and for the first time started booking and planning their trips without the need for a travel agent. While online booking created a revolution in the travel field, the ability to easily compare prices was the next frontier, and no one did that better than Kayak, which provided a search engine to compare flight prices across numerous airlines at a glance. Today Kayak features a dizzying array of flights, hotels, cars, trains, vacations packages and activities that all work together to make the perfect vacation. And due to Kayak's easy to use search engine, you can easily plan the perfect trip in just a few clicks. It's innovations like this which helped shape the way people travel and a lot of those conveniences are owed to the early work that Kayak did in their field. For those looking to maximize the value of their Kayak booking experience, take a look at Kayak's rewards program, Kayak Explorer, which gives you $1 for every 1,000 Kayak points you earn. With the launch of the program, Kayak started offering a signup bonus of 2,000 Kayak points for every new member, making this a loyalty program that is well worth checking out. Please note that this loyalty program typically works for all your purchases at Kayak, but some exceptions may apply.

Loyalty points or benefits will usually appear in your Kayak Explorer account within 1 days.

You may be able to recover points or redeem rewards you should have earned for a purchase.
