Hipmunk Now Finds Flights That Fit Into Your Schedule

Hey, busy travelers: If you’re tired of toggling back and forth between your Google calendar and the website you use for booking your flights, the folks at Hipmunk have come up with a way to integrate your schedule into your flight and hotel searches.

Registered Hipmunk users can now give the site access to one or more of their Google calendars, so that when they run a flight search, all their scheduled events will be highlighted on the Hipmunk flight timeline, allowing them to see what meetings, conference calls, lunches and fancy-dress parties interfere with which flights.

There is also a “no conflicts” setting, which only shows the user which flights do not overlap with calendar events.

For hotel searches, Hipmunk provides a map showing the locations of your various calendar events — and the order in which you’ll be going to each of these spots — along with pins showing the locations of the hotels available for booking.
