Kayak question

[I posted this in "Air Travel" but no responses yet.]

Is there a way to set a Kayak alert for open-jaw or multi-city travel?
I don't see how to do it, and have always found Kayak alerts very helpful.
Thanks~

Unless they've added it recently, I don't think so. When I was looking for flights for a trip awhile back, I set multiple round-trip alerts (this was an Italy trip, so I set alerts for Rome and Milan). The prices weren't drastically different from the multi-city, so that ended up working well enough.

no, they only give two options, which you must have seen, one way or RT to same cities

I have not found it. I set one round trip alert to the arriving airport and another round trip alert to the departing airport. The open-jaw prices roughly follow these two price trends.

I've almost never got a really useful alert from Kayak, and I get annoyed with their emails telling me the price has gone up or down by €2. So, I don't really use them any more. I just start following the fares myself about 10-12 weeks before the trip.

Thanks to all who responded and I will set up two separate alerts.

I'm a planner and set up alert as soon as we have a trip in mind since we no longer use FF miles.
(I don't mind dealing with the emails if they have the potential to save $$.)

Best deal I got was a $300 per ticket saving, but that was five months out and I realize not everyone plans that far ahead. Thanks again!
