George Hobica founded Smarter Travel Media in 1998. The company operates as an online travel agency, designed to find low priced air fares, hotels, and vacation packages.
The company operates under several different names including Airfarewatchdog, BookingBuddy, Family Vacation Critic, Holiday Watchdog, OneTime, Oyster, SmarterTravel, and WhatToPack.
Due to the coronavirus crisis, vacation trips and flights have dramatically dropped in price. Tracy Stewart, the content editor for Airfarewatchdog, says that to be on the safe side and prevent canceled flights, as of January 2021, it’s best to book flights at least 3-4 months out if possible.
AirFareWatchDog maintains a corporate office in Boston, Massachusetts.
