How It Works

HeyNuna works hard to give the world the most friendly technologies to search and compare the best travel deals from all the top travel sites to find the right flights, hotels, cruises, rental cars, and vacation packages, confidently.

In one simple search, HeyNuna presents in seconds, an unbiased comparison of all travel products and prices offered by a large number of travel vendors, and enables shoppers to quickly find the best deal. Whether you’re looking for flights, hotels, rental cars or more, we gather deals from across the web and put them in one place. Compare your options for the same flight, hotel or rental car and choose where you book; whether it’s directly with the airline, hotel or car agency, or from another travel site.

Prices come straight to your screen from the travel vendors who are competing for your business, with no extra fee from HeyNuna. When you choose your preferred deal, it's the provider who pays us a small fee for either linking you to them, not you.

Another way we earn money is by letting travel vendors advertise on our site. If you click on one of these ads, then advertisers even pay us for that click.

RESULTS

Several factors affect how we list the results of your search, and we provide many options to help you find the perfect hotel, flight, car rental, cruise or activity. The “sort” settings at the top of the page allows you to order search results to your preference, whether based on price, traveler ratings, or other criteria. The “filter” settings also allow you to include or exclude various options to suit your travel needs. If no options are selected, we will show the search results, in default sort order based on a number of relevant factors.

Want to know more? Here’s how we (generally) sort results:

PRICE

Looking for the lowest price? We can make that happen. Our price sort gives you quick access to the cheapest and/or the most expensive deals — it’s your trip so it’s up to you.

Sometimes the same deal will be available on several travel vendors. All of these vendors are available for you to choose from, but we may highlight one main vendor based on popularity or ratings. Vendors can also become highlighted if they pay more for the clicks they get. Within a hotel listing, if the cheapest offer is not displayed above the "View Deal" or "Select" button, you can see it by looking for the price highlighted in green.

BEST, POPULAR, OR RECOMMENDED

Just because a deal is cheap doesn’t make it necessarily the “best.” By weighing factors like how popular a provider is with customers or how few stops a flight makes, we can make “Best”, "Popular" or “Recommended” suggestions. Ultimately, it’s up to you, but saving $50 on that flight to NYC may be a lot less enticing when you realize there’s a 10-hour layover.

Sometimes we also judge the quality of the service you’re getting from a provider site. We’ll highlight things like a provider’s booking or baggage fees, so that when you compare your options, you’re using the total price. And if a provider isn’t upfront with their fees, making their prices less clear, we’ll tend not to recommend them.

In the specific case of hotels, the “Recommended” algorithm is based on a few key factors. The main two rely on the hotel's guest rating and its popularity (in terms of clicks). Hotels shown on HeyNuna are often available to book on several provider sites, each of which will pay for clicks or bookings that they get via HeyNuna. We also factor the average revenue potential of each hotel into our recommendations.

Within a hotel listing, we order our results based on an internal algorithm that balances the prices and our revenue for the results shown. If the cheapest offer is not displayed above the "View Deal" or "Select" button, we highlight it in green in the central section of the listing.

HOW WE GET PRICE INFO

We search hundreds of travel, airline, hotel and rental car sites at once to bring you options from across the web. While we always strive to have the most accurate and current information, sometimes there are inaccuracies. Sometimes it’s because the provider site isn't updating their inventory with us, hasn’t connected to our site properly or another traveler has already booked that deal. This last reason can sometimes happen because we cache results in order to keep site-speed up so you’re not waiting around. For example, if you and another traveler start the same search within the same minute then we’ll most likely show you both the same results. At the very least, provider sites should give us an updated inventory of prices every 24 hours.

HOW WE WORK WITH TRAVEL VENDORS

HeyNuna has contractual partnerships with most of the 100+ provider sites that can be seen in our results. If you’re a business that’s interested in working with us, check out our Affiliates, Hotel Owners, Tour Operators, Car Rentals, and Travel Agents pages.
