Momondo commenced in September 2006 with 46-year-old Danish businessman, Mr. Thorvald Stigsen, who founded Skygate in 1992. Skygate is the parent company of Momondo.
In 2011, Momondo, together with Skygate, was bought by Cheapflights. Even so, Momondo remains in operation in Denmark as an independent subsidiary. Hugo Burge, who was with Cheapflights’ investor group became the Chief Executive Officer of Momondo.
Since 2013, Momondo was consecutively nominated as “World’s Leading Flight Comparison Website” and in 2011, they won the award from Danish Travel Awards as the “Best Travel Website.”
Momondo is an online travel search engine based in Copenhagen, Denmark wherein customers can search and compare airfare, hotel reservation packages, and car rentals.
Momondo doesn’t only focus on searching and comparing but also provides inspiration to travellers with their Trip Finder service. Trip Finder narrows down the search options to destinations and customers’ budget to cities, shopping, beaches, nature, nightlife, and skiing.
At Momondo, customers get to see thumbnails of tourist attractions by popular destinations and countries. The layout will remind you of Windows 8. Once customers pick a country destination, it directs them to another page wherein customers can search flights within the country of choice.
The mobile app lets customers compare flights, find hotel deals, and almost similar services provided on the PC version. The travel app is available for download in the App store and Google Play store.
The last section of Momondo gives customers the option to get subscribed to their newsletter. This service lets customers receive the latest deals and offers by Momondo straight to their inbox, all they have to do is type in their email address and hit “Yes, please!”
Why NOT Momondo?
For some reason, the Momondo reviews posted online are a bit skeptical. We noticed that the rating was 9/10 but that wasn’t the reason for us to be doubtful. Taking a closer look at 576 posted Momondo reviews, the most recent ones are almost showing an illegit profile continuously posting positive comments. I hope this is not the way of Momondo to make their company look trustworthy. Moreover, complaints are not even acknowledged by Momondo which leaves other consumers more agitated over the travel site.
One reviewer even said “There are several agencies operating on Momondo that are highly irregular, not to say illegal. To mention one, Lycafly. Stay well away from them”. With that review alone, Momondo had not just lost tons of customers but also their reputation for 10 years.

After writing this Momondo review, I am not really convinced to use this online travel agency due to its inconsistent quality of service. If they are really successful, then why sell to Cheapflights? Are they so incompetent that they need to seek others’ help?
