Travel search engine Mobissimo has introduced a recommendation feature to help travelers plan trips and compare fares.

Mobissimo's Recommendation Box gives a dashboard of the lowest fare options available for any destination, including the lowest fares for non-stop flights, the best fares on alternate dates, the best fares to the related geographic region, and the cheapest business class fares.

"We are setting the industry standard for what travel comparison search should be – quick, easy, and comprehensive. With Mobissimo's innovative Recommendation Box, the best travel options are available in one place so that Mobissimo users can find better, cheaper travel options, and spend their time travelling instead of searching," said Beatrice Tarka, Mobissimo's CEO and co-founder.

"We have created an API to feed alternate travel options to our Recommendation Box—such as train travel and travel package information—and we can offer our users the whole picture of the travel offer available," she added.

The box updates dynamically according to the user's query, and displays all possible options including, for example, Eurostar and Rail Europe fares for many European destinations. In addition, it can offer suggestions based on activity: when a user searches for particular beach destinations such as Cancun, Honolulu or Miami, the search engine will automatically recommend fares for the cheapest beach destination.
