San Francisco (PRNewswire/ -- Travel Ticker®, the inspirational travel website and newsletter home to insider deals at the world's favorite destinations, today introduced Saving Searcher Air Alerts. This unique new service delivers top money-saving airfare deals to consumers without them ever having to do a search.


Through Travel Ticker's advanced research process across multiple airline suppliers, Saving Searcher Air Alert emails reach out to would-be travelers as soon as great deals are discovered, making sure they have ample opportunity to take advantage of the low prices. In addition to real-time delivery, the air alerts are geo-targeted to consumers based on the subscriber's zip code. As a result, the money-saving alerts are completely relevant to the travelers they reach, minimizing inbox intrusion and helping consumers take advantage of deals they otherwise may not have known about.


The new Savings Searcher Air Alerts are powered by one of the most sophisticated technologies in the industry. This system has been gathering search data for nearly 10 years and is provided by sister site Hotwire®. With this in-depth historical information, Travel Ticker's advanced algorithm sifts through millions of airfares around the globe, recognizing pricing trends and searching for needle-in-a-haystack deals to alert consumers immediately when airfare prices drop on some of the best destinations from their local airports.


"It's very common for airlines to drop prices without notice, resulting in many great airfare deals that go undiscovered by deal-seeking travelers," said Barbara Messing, General Manager of Travel Ticker. "With our Savings Searcher Air Alerts, Travel Ticker does all the work for consumers, making sure they don't miss out on these hidden air deals to their favorite places."
