This meta search engine sorts tickets by something called an Agony Index. It ranks flights by a mix of price, duration, and number of layovers. For instance, redeye flights score poorly.
It has three key perks:
• Hotels are color-coded by their rates. See which neighborhoods have the best deals.
• The site plots the location of the accommodations on a Google map. But there's a twist: It has a "heat map" for cool restaurants and hangouts. Lots of green dots mean there are lots of fun things to do nearby.
• Sort properties by "ecstasy," a mix of rate, amenities, and Yelp rating.
