Orbitz Labs debuts with experimental Big Data travel tools for consumers – Tnooz

The US travel site Orbitz debuts today a set of tools on a new “Labs” page, which lets consumers search for travel information using charts, heat maps, and other interactive methods.

One tool allows consumers to search historic hotel rates by booking date as a way to forecast when to buy. For instance, if you want to book a room in the US for April, the historically cheapest time to make a booking is a month-and-a-half in advance, according to the company’s data.

Orbitz Labs “Big Game Flight Finder” and “Big Game Hotel Finder” tools are aimed at helping Americans book last-minute travel at destinations holding major sporting events.
