Apple has named the popular hotel and flight-booking app Kayak Pro its App of the Week this week. This means that through next Thursday, you’ll be able to pick up the application for both your iPhone and iPad, for free—a modest savings of $1.

For those unfamiliar with Kayak, it’s considered by many to be the top mobile travel app. It essentially works as a search engine for hundreds of travel sites, allowing you to compare prices for things like flights, cars and hotels, as well as book them…

From Apple’s App of the Week note:

Trips are a breeze with Kayak Pro, which lets you book flights, cars, and hotels through a simple, intuitive interface. The app offering something useful for every traveler, including a flight tracker to check if flights are on time, price alerts to find cheap destination tickets, and even terminal maps to help you get around the airport.

I picked up this app for free a year or so ago and it has become an invaluable tool in my travel-planning. It’s fast, easy-to-use, and saves you from having to visit multiple travel sites to comparison shop. It’s well worth the price tag and a steal for free.

If you don’t already have it, you can find Kayak Pro in the App Store, for both the iPhone and iPad, for $0 (for a limited time).
