AirGorilla review

Our Verdict

A fair aggregator site, AirGorilla is a solid choice for vacation booking. However, it struggles to offer anything better than competitors.

For

  • Good for booking the basics

Against

  • Not enough options for packages
  • Poor website layout

AirGorilla is one of the oldest online travel sites and, while its homepage has some cosmetic issues, it also has an abundance of reservation help, especially for international travelers. You can find accommodations for bed and breakfasts. You can also reserve airport parking spots or rent a cell phone or GPS unit. It partners with other sites so you can book international rail tickets or reserve adventures, such as safaris and tickets, for other attractions.

After booking a flight, you can see your reservation confirmation on the Confirm Flights page. Prices and trip options update continuously. There's a fare guarantee that refunds the difference in price if another online travel site is able to book the same flight and class for a cheaper price within 30 days of your booking date. To search across more airlines, we recommend searching for flights using Orbitz, our top pick for booking airfare.

AirGorilla's homepage layout is easy enough to use, but it's blocky and basic. Some links lead to simple HTML-based lists that may seem outdated or suspicious. For example, the youth hostel's link is a dead end populated by a bulleted list and article rather than a search field. Some of the link titles don't correspond with the page they lead to. For example, the Cancel, Confirm, and Change Flights links under the Help tab lead to the FAQs page. The more adventurous vacation options, like safaris, contain links that lead to other websites entirely. While this is common with many travel websites, transferring websites for reservations may make help and support tricky if you're not sure which company to go to with questions. If you'd rather book a travel package through a more reputable site, book through Travelocity. It's our top pick overall because it makes booking vacation packages so easy.

AirGorilla can provide you with reservations for a memorable and adventurous vacation, such as a safari or a stay at a quaint bed and breakfast. You can also use this online travel site to reserve an airport parking spot, though you don't book these items through AirGorilla directly. The site has an outdated look and some dead-end links that may prove confusing, but you can still easily book the basics, like airfare and hotels, through this online travel site.
