Hotwire Hot Rates offer our very lowest prices and are great for when you have flexibility. You don't have an assigned seat until check-in, nor do you accrue frequent flyer miles. You can pick your travel days when you book, but your times and your airline are chosen for you. But rest assured that we partner with a select group of airlines so you can be confident you're flying with a well-known airline. You'll see both your exact flight times and airline once you've booked your reservation.
You'll see fares designated as "0-1 stops" or "2+ stops" in your search results. Scheduled connection times for flights within the US and between the US and Canada are never more than 3 hours. Connecting times for international flights may be longer. Your scheduled departure time will be listed as "6am-10pm" or as "6am-2am," which means the flight departs after 10PM local time.
If you need to know exact flight times and airline names before booking, accrue frequent flyer miles, or need a little more flexibility for ticket changes, a regular-rate may be best. See also: Is there a way to get a refund or change my flight?
