Known as The Weekender, the service allows travelers to search for trips that only take place between Thursday and Monday, catering to consumer preference for shorter and more frequent trips

Many people love to optimize their vacation days by taking long weekends. In fact, travel website Airfarewatchdog found that 57% of travelers would prefer to take multiple long weekend trips instead of one long vacation. The brand took this information into account when creating its service called The Weekender.

The tool is very focused on long weekends, as the search engine only allows consumers to search for trips between Friday and Monday. Users do not specify a location, as the service will suggest trips that offer the best value. In addition to booking airfare, the service also allows hopeful travelers to book local hotel rooms as well.

Travel booking services can have a tough time differentiating themselves. With this tool, Airfarewatchdog intends to focus on a very specific set of customers and offer them something other sites don’t. The Weekender tool is now live and can be accessed via on the travel site.
