start-up-idea-planeA San Francisco-based start-up describes itself as “a brand-new way to make your next vacation getaway easier to find and cheaper to book”.

 

GetGoing works with airlines to help consumers find better deals on flights.

 

“How can we get up to 40% off your flights? Simple. We offer a discount exclusively to fun-seeking leisure travellers and help the airlines fill empty seats,” GetGoing says on its website.

 

“We search hundreds of destinations to quickly find flights that meet your criteria, including to places you haven’t even thought of.”

 

“We ask that you pick flights to two different destinations, say Paris AND Rome. You get to select your flight times, stops, and arrival and departure times.”

 

“You see the price, and you can check that it’s hundreds of dollars cheaper than anywhere else.”

 

“The second you pay, you find out which one of the two destinations you are going to. You get your booking confirmation and tickets right away. Your flexibility saves you up to 40%.”

 

As consumers continue to travel more frequently and on ever-shrinking budgets, how else might you enhance the experience of the cash-strapped tourist?
