Can this new site make leisure travel cheaper?

Hey friends,

So I know I owe you a D.C. post (don’t say I didn’t warn you that we do a lot of hangin’ around when we’re together), but I wanted to jump on a press release that I received in my email this morning about a new travel site that, I think, has a lot of potential.

So the site, called GetGoing, works on what they’re calling a ‘pick two, get one’ process. What that essentially means is that users design two different trips (including dates, flight times, number of stops they want, etc.), and GetGoing works to get you the best discounts so you can actually purchase whichever trip turns out to be cheaper.

The system works because airlines often offer up to 40% off airfare for leisure travelers in order to fill up their empty seats. “Nearly one in five seats on all flights worldwide are empty, and we view that as a huge opportunity for more people to get out and see the world,” Alek Vernitsky, co-founder and CEO of GetGoing said in their press release. “So we decided to help flexible leisure travelers get great deals on those open seats by proving that they are actually traveling for leisure.” (Hence the reason users are prompted to pick two destinations.)

GetGoing is currently flying to hundreds of major airports in over 50 countries.

Check out the full video explanation of how the site works here:

What do you guys think? Would you try out GetGoing?

  1. Howdy! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to
    ask. Does operating a well-established website like yours take
    a lot of work? I am completely new to operating a blog however
    I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  2. Hi there! This is my first visit to your blog!

    We are a group of volunteers and starting a new project in a
    community in the same niche. Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on.
    You have done a marvellous job!

  3. Awesome website you have here but I was curious about if you
    knew of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed
    here? I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get advice from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Kudos!
