This is a place devoted to giving you deeper insight
into the news, trends, people and technology behind Bing.
We're delighted to share the news that Bing, the enhanced search engine that helps you make faster decisions, is officially live at Bing.com. If you haven't yet had a chance to explore Bing, we think you'll be amazed at all of the new features we've built. And when it comes time to plan a trip, we hope you'll make your first stop on Bing Travel, the site that combines airfare and hotel tools from Farecast with rich editorial content from MSN Travel.
Here are just a few of the most innovative features and tools of Bing Travel that we think will help you make smarter travel decisions:
- Price Predictor: When you search for a flight, you'll see the technology that Bing Travel uses to analyze more than 175 billion airfare observations and predict whether the price of a flight is going up or down and when you should buy that airfare. Not only is the site faster than ever, but we've re-designed the experience to let you customize your results to include just the flights you want.
- Instant Answers: When you search for a hotel in Las Vegas or many other cities, you'll see a list of the best properties right within the search results. And the Rate Indicator will help you determine if you're getting a deal on your room.
- Flight Status: Need to know whether your flight is on time? Just type the airline and flight number into the search box, and you'll get up-to-date information right in your results. And Bing saves you time, too: You can search for "Alaska flight 15" or just type "AS 15" and get the info even faster!
- Phone Number Search: If you ever need to get in touch with a customer service representative for your favorite airline, let Bing point the way to the right phone number. Just type "JetBlue" in the search box, for example, and you'll immediately see that you can reach customer service at 800-538-2583.
- Expert Editorial Content: Bing Travel also features exclusive editorial content from some of the world’s biggest names in travel, including Peter Greenberg and Pauline Frommer, and licenses content from leading publications such as Travel + Leisure, Budget Travel and The Wall Street Journal. Our editorial experts inspire travelers to find new destinations and provide tips to help you have easier trips.
When you search with Bing, you’ll see how much easier it is to make your travel decisions. We're off to a great start, and we’re excited about the many ways that searching for travel is becoming a whole lot smarter. But we're not slowing down. We'll keep thinking of ways to improve Bing Travel, and if you have ideas, we'd love to hear from you.

How about a search that will tell you how to get from that place? Uhmm, all sorts of transportations? Like train, cab or a jeepney? i think it must be passed to the community.
Just tried out your flight search - this is very good. Is there a way I can add the search function on my own website?
I personaly think the area that you are most lagging behind google at the moment is in maping. Your small local maps arnt moveable at all, and your missing alot of features in the full blown mapping.
I tried the flight search and i think it's well done. Also the shopping search seems well made. Good work!
Really great. Just a small pity - the "show multiple flight routes in one map" function doesn't work for departures / arrivals outside of the US. This would be really useful if it could be used internationally.
I hope Bing's full features such as this would be available too in developing countries. It would be a great help and we'll appreciate it very much.
BTW, I'm from the Philippines
I like the search tools and price predictor, will this be coming to the UK market ?
These guys sells very good and cheap travel bags...
Will the travel search be included in bing uk? this will be very helpful to us in england.
