A New Travel Search Engine Takes Off

Yes, it's another travel search engine that offers a meta or federated search of disparate air fare databases to report on. The engine is called Dohop and comes from a company based in Reykjavik, Iceland. Dohop has been in beta for the past few months and offically left the hangar today. At the present time, Dohop allows you to find schedule and fares for more 300 European destinations. You'll be searching the databases of more than 30 European airlines including both legacy carriers (Lufthansa, Air France, British Airways) as well as low-cost carriers (Ryan Air, Easy Jet, and SkyEurope).

You'll also notice tabs on the home page to access hotel rates and car rental prices. However, these services aren't working. I was only able to find links to various hotel aggregator sites and car rental companies.

Other travel search tools focusing on European travel include OpenJet.com and AppleFares.com.
