Frequent Questions


Simple answers to your most common questions.

What is BoltFare?

BoltFare is your own personal, AI-powered travel agent. You tell us your travel itinerary, and we monitor hundreds of different sources around the internet to find you the absolute best airfare deals. We do this all as a chatbot, over Facebook Messenger.

How are you different from Expedia, SkyScanner, etc?

We monitor flights over a long period of time, constantly checking your requested dates for deals. It can take between a few days to a few weeks in order to find you a deal - but we can guarantee the deal we find is much, much better than you would find on flight search engines. If you need to fly on a certain day, to a certain destination, then perhaps BoltFare isn't right for you - but if your itinerary is flexible then we can save you a lot of money on airfare.

How many flight deals should I expect? Why aren't I receiving any deals?

This depends entirely on your origin, destination, and dates. Try to be as flexible as you can - you'll get much better results by choosing major flight hubs or by looking for flights to all of Europe instead of a small city within Europe. Additionally, there's a greater chance we find deals for dates like "this summer" or "any dates" instead of single-day dates.

Depending on the above, deals may take between an hour and a few weeks to receive. Please be patient, and remember to be as flexible as possible to receive more deals!

What types of flights do you send out? Domestic too?

We primarily send out roundtrip international flights, since those are the most expensive to begin with (and thus we can find the best savings!) The flights we send out originate from everywhere except Asia, South America, and Africa. We will be expanding this after the beta - if you have a location you'd like to see, feel free to reach out to us!

Are you sending out only last-minute deals?

The opposite, actually - the majority of deals we send out are between 1-9 months into the future. Keep this in mind when asking us to monitor flights - chances are we won't find you a deal for a flight departing next week!

What is BoltFare Premium? How much is it?

BoltFare Premium allows users to track multiple destinations, and receive unlimited notifications for flight deals. Free users are limited to tracking one destination, as well as receive only one deal per month.
It costs $5 per month - forever. As long as you stay a premium subscriber, your price will never change - even if we decide to increase prices or modify plans in the future.

How do I book flights I receive?

We send out the deals on Google Flights. We don't get a commission from them, or charge you a fee to book - we just pass along the deals to you.

I signed up for premium - how do I cancel?

Simply tell the bot you'd like to cancel premium. It's as easy as that.

How do I unsubscribe and stop receiving deals?

If you delete the chat with BoltFare (from within Facebook), you won't hear from us again.
