Kayak.com, the world's largest travel search engine, has been selected as the top travel site in BusinessWeek's 2006 "Best of the Web" competition. In addition, Kayak.com reveals that consumers are now researching more than 10 million trips each month through its travel search engine.

BusinessWeek's annual list of "must-bookmark sites" identifies the most useful and engaging sites on the Web. Winners are selected by a combination of editorial review and reader votes. The list covers 23 different categories, from travel to sports. For the past two years, Kayak.com has claimed top honors in its travel category. This is the seventh major award that Kayak.com has received this year, and follows similar recognition by Forbes.com, TIME Magazine, the Associated Press, and US News & World Report.

Just 18 months after its launch, Kayak.com now answers more than 10 million consumer requests for air, hotel, and rental car information each month. This milestone comes on the heels of Hitwise's August report that Kayak.com has doubled its share of the online travel market in the past six months.

"'Best of the Web' identifies the most innovative, exciting sites on the web, and we are pleased to be counted in this group for the second year in a row. As this award and our growth demonstrate, consumers love Kayak.com and its wealth of comprehensive and unbiased travel information," said Drew Patterson, VP of Marketing, Kayak.com. "We look forward to making Kayak.com even better in the months to come."
