How Does TravelArrow Work?
TravelArrow opens fare information in new browser tabs, allowing you to see the exact route you put in Google Flights in other airfare sites with the click of a button.
Because the flights are pre-loaded on each website, you can easily see the prices and compare fares to get the best deal.
It says on the site, “TravelArrow is your travel companion. With just one click, automatically convert your exact Google Flights route onto Skyscanner and Kayak — which are travel search engines with cheaper fares. Also, convert your search directly onto Southwest Airlines – since they’re the only airline that doesn’t list fares on 3rd party websites. TravelArrow helps you access cheaper fares you’d otherwise never find!”
I tried out TravelArrow to see how it works and whether it’s easy it is to use. Follow these steps (which work only on a laptop or PC).
How To Find Cheap Fares on TravelArrow
Let’s say you want to look at flights to Maui, Hawaii, on Google Flights.
From there, you can toggle between the browser tabs to see the different fares.
When I used the site, I was able to compare Maui fares on Google Flights as well as see results from Southwest.com. Using TravelArrow, here were the fares on the respective airlines I was able to instantly compare:

You can customize your search further by omitting specific airlines, choosing only direct flights, and of course, changing your desired dates and times.
To help offset higher prices on flights today, Clark says you should start searching for one-way fares. And don't forget to take advantage of Southwest's Low Fare Calendar to find dates when it's cheaper to fly.
Remember, TravelArrow doesn’t show Southwest fares in Google Flights, but it opens the same itinerary you put in Google Flights on Southwest.com.
Judging from the reviews on its Chrome Store page (it shows that 30,000+ people have installed the extension), TravelArrow is a hit among travelers.
Here at Clark.com, we want you to always compare fares to find the cheapest deals on the trips you plan to take. Because it opens several browser tabs at once, TravelArrow puts that process on steroids.
