Options Away

Options Away is the world’s only online travel agency that allows consumers to hold their flights for days or even weeks while they finalize their travel plans. Options Away leverages the concepts and technologies of the financial options markets and applies them to the travel industry. We provide a revolutionary approach to travel planning – customers can pay a small fee up front and buy some peace-of-mind knowing that if the price of the flight increases, they will never have to pay more than the locked-in fare. Best of all, we notify our customers if the price of their fare decreases, so they win either way. Optionsaway.com provides a direct to consumer solution for holding airline tickets, while our APIs provide our strategic partners the ability to integrate our unique offering to their customers while leveraging the our pricing models and customer management solutions. Our team is made up of passionate professionals from the financial and travel industries who have joined forces to offer an unprecedented level of flexibility in booking travel combined with an commitment to outstanding customer service. Options Away is a rebranded continuation of BitBend.com.
