  1. Flexible Dates, +/- days on the fly to see how prices change.

    From a user: The trouble is, only a couple of my dates are fixed, therefore if your itinery planner had a +/- days on the dates, this could make a huge difference in price I'm sure. Is there any way I could search with flexible dates?

    Apart from that your flight search is the simplest system I have ever used. Good stuff.

    • Do not make me put in specific dates for each flight

      This is supposed to be am early planning tool. If I already had specific dates for each flight, I would NOT need this website to help me. As it is, this tool is useless.

      • Show what airport or city code to choose for a location to get the lowest fare. Show the "hubs"

        Currently, when I select a big city, I might see several options for that city and I need help choosing which option is best. Sometimes an option is a hub airport instead of a tiny airport. Sometimes the option is a city code and not an airport.

        For example: Moscow and Beijing.

        • After Pressing Purchase - 30 seconds of?

          I had to wait perhaps 30 seconds or so till the next screen came up. If it is supposed to take that long - can we put some simple messaging up in the while we wait?

          • Middle Initial or Name for Travelers Details.

            My passport lists my middle name - we might want to at least add space for folks to me able to enter it. Now it's just First and Last.

            • Route just spinning after working a few minutes ago

              https://indie.bootsnall.com/STL-FRA-DEL-STL-1346337055

              I did a search - got a fare - tried to add another stop, got a fare - deleted the stop I added, and wanted to get the original fare.

              Been spinning for a few minutes.

              • play with max travel hours or direct flights

                great tool, i would however like to play with max travel hours or direct flights and see what it does to the price. further the other options does not work. so i can only review the cheapest option, and i do not like the number of flight hours it shows for my trip.

                  For long routes, with 5 or more legs, you can edit each leg individually. You can see the duration and at-a-glance notice the effect on price.

                    SJF has several scheduled routes to it but they are mostly in Greenland. One route to Cophehagen. Indie does not know how to connect this airport to major hubs, so I removed the airport from displaying for now.

                      Hello,
                      I am contacting you to see if there is an opportunity to place a guest post within your website?

                      I have vast experience as a writer and blogger and am currently writing on behalf of a Travel based organisation, which is keen to raise their online profile.

                      I feel that several of my article ideas would be appropriate to your site, including:
                      • “Paris: Beyond the Romance”
                      • “The Ultimate Relaxation Mini Break”
                      • “Making Your Hobby Your Holiday”

                      Is this something of interest to you?

                      I look forward to speaking with you soon.

                      Warm Regards
                      Debbie Fletcher

                      • Rabies vacine comment

                        I'm 60 years old, from the U.S., married to an educated Thai woman, and have traveled for about 4 years in 19 3rd world countries in Asia, and Central/South America. Your statement today that rabies vaccine is very expensive in the U.S. is completely true (my sister is a veterinarian, and she said that her cost for the vaccine is much more than the $1000 amount for the 5 shot series if you were bitten by a possible rabies carrier). Note that my wife was bitten in Bangkok by a stray dog, and had to get the 5 shot series.…

                          This routing failed and my guess is that it is the YAP airport. When I swapped it out for bigger destinations (eg: DPS & NAN), I could get a price.

                            When you put in the dates, i was not sure if it was fly date. it's probably a nit but maybe a some extra guidance.

                              We have little arrows now that go from one location to another on screen and pass through a little airplane.
                              I hope this helps clarify that the dates is the departure dates.
                              this was confusing for me at first. It still is at times. But we have not gotten feedback on this at all.
                              It does not seem to be a problem.

                                  Ah. This was happening on some screen resolutions. Not all of the table was fitting on screen and there was no way to access the part off-screen. There is now. Just scroll.

                                • add info on Cali, Colombia

                                  Hi,
                                  I'd like to share information about Cali, Colombia. I clicked on the "send us a blurb" site and landed here...

                                  Overview:
                                  Easy climate, easy living, southern hospitality...Cali is more than just the salsa capital of Colombia. The climate is nearly always at the perfect temperature for sitting outside at a cafe. It's a typical city atmosphere, with plenty of shopping malls and cinemas but is not very touristy and can be a good place to hide out and hang with the locals (or to learn and practice your Spanish). Some parts of the city are still a little rough,…

                                    Moscow has several airports. We only show one (VKO) and it's not the main one. The first two of these should be in Indie: DME, SVO, BKA, VKO

                                    • Changing Specific Legs of the Trip

                                      It would be great if there was the ability to change a specific leg of the trip to a different carrier/layover. This specifically is an issue for solo-traveling females who's potential trips include long layovers in Riyadh. It would be great if you could simply re-search that specific leg of the trip and choose a different airline/layover (even if at a higher cost).

                                        This is now possible for longer routes, with 5 or more legs. Just click on a leg and edit it. We also added a flexible dates search in there.

                                        Only HND is available. What about Narita (NRT)?

                                        • No sideways scroll on flight selector page

                                          There is no sideways scrolling option when the user's screen resolution is too small to display the entire page.
