Transiting Exoplanets and in particular Hot Jupiters around bright stars are key ingredients for understanding planetary formation and migration statistics of planetary properties and planetary dynamics since they are of the most favorable for observational study I will present a novel approach to use low cadence photometric surveys such as the promising Gaia space mission for Exoplanetary transit search We find that even if transits are undetectable in the sparsely sampled data the Directed Follow Up strategy can be used to choose preferred tim
