The Hotwire mission

Our mission is to offer unbeatable low prices on airline tickets, hotel reservations, car rentals, vacation packages, and cruises. Through our partnerships with leading travel companies, we can get customers ridiculously low prices.

How does Hotwire work?

Our partners allow us access to their unsold inventory--empty seats on flights, empty hotel rooms, and extra cars on the lot--at big savings. By showing the name of our travel partner after customers book, Hotwire can get them travel deals that are significantly below published prices.


Hotwire helps you sell your distressed inventory via our unique opaque model, allowing you to easily generate incremental and guaranteed business. Because we do not show the hotel name, content or location at the time of booking you can safely discount to fill rooms without advertising low rates. Best of all, we work with you to sell rooms when you need it most!
