Travel Booking Meets Online Dating?
Wednesday, November 17, 2010
Ever wanted your travel booking experience to resemble something more like that of online dating than, well, online booking? Well, maybe Kayak’s come closest. Stay with me here. Perusing around the site the other day I cam across their new “Explore” feature which, as you can see above, is a graphic representation of the cheapest flights around from a particular destination (based on other users’ purchases in the last 48 hours).
Now comes the online dating aspect. Say you want to narrow it down to a specific price range — say your Christmas bonus amount — just slide the price range downward. Have flexible dates? Pick a season rather than a specific month to really find the best deals. Looking for a flight that enjoys fine dining, French film and walks on the beach, just . . . oh wait, that’s the other one. Happy hunting!
