Airfare tracking site Yapta announced today that they landed a $5 million investment from TripIt owner Concur, as reported by TechCrunch. This brings Yapta’s total investment to $13.8 million, or in layman’s terms, what Google spent on lunch today at their offices.
If you didn’t know, Yapta is a site that alerts you to price dips in airfares, hotel rates and post-purchase drops in airfare prices (which would allow you to receive a refund in the price difference). They also claim that as of today, they’ve saved users over $250,621,489 since March of 2007.
