Q: Do I book through Opptee?

You complete the booking process inside Opptee by booking at the site that you have chosen to buy from.  The page that’s open to the site behaves exactly like a tab in the browser so you go through the site just like you would if you accessed it by using Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge or other browser.

Q: I chose a site to search and arrived at the “home” page of that site but my search didn’t automatically execute.

Sorry!  Please use “Send Feedback” from the Menu to tell us what city you’re in and which site isn’t automatically working.  We try very hard to ensure that all sites work but, at times, sites change and we need to reconfigure our software to realign with them.

Q: Can I save the history of my searches?

Yes, there is a History feature that allows you to view all the searches you have done in the past. Simply click on the icon and choose the search that you wish to revisit.  You will need to select the search providers again, and re-execute the search, as prices are continually changing.  

Q: When I get to the list of sites, I see a lot of choices!  Can I save them as favorites so they’re quicker to access next time?

Your “most recently used” sites are kept at the front of the site list.  For Example:  if you use Opptee to search the same five sites all of the time, those sites will be at the front of the list the next time you use Opptee.

Q: I’m searching from Canada and, at times, the currency is shown in US dollars.  How can I fix this?

Not all search sites provide the option for showing pricing in CAD.  Although Opptee allows you to select your currency in settings, if the site doesn’t provide pricing in CAD, we don’t do any conversions. Please pay close attention to the currency that is being used by the site you’re exploring to ensure you are comparing similar currencies. 

Q: I see that I can book car, flight and hotel together but can I book just a flight and car or just a hotel and car or any other combination?

Yes, Click on Packages (center icon) on the Opptee dial.  Then, near the top of the form, choose the combination that you want (flight+hotel; flight+hotel+car; flight+car).

Q: I’ve selected too many search options!  How to I remove a previous search from my results?

When you click on any of the icons in the Opptee dial, on the Home page, you can change any information and just restart the search.

Q: I have set a price alert for my flight searches, but I am not getting any notifications.  What am I doing wrong?

We’ll only notify you if we’re successful in finding a lower price than the one that you already saw.  Rest assured that we’ll let you know if we find something.
