Eenie, meenie, minie, mo...would you let a website pick where you’ll go?
That’s the premise of GetGoing.com, a new website that is planning a launch November 1st. The site promises airfare discounts of UP TO 40 percent off to users who are willing to let the website pick their final destination. Here’s how it works: Users conduct a flight search, either by regional destination (Europe, Asia, U.S., etc.) or by interest (family fun, beaches and sun, history and culture, etc.) and are shown, on average, 10 possible destinations, along with a full selection of flight options for each one. THEN getgoing.com asks you to windle it down to your top 2 choices AND give your credit card information. Then, and only after you have paid them and clicked 'complete this purchase' do you find out where you are headed.
I guess it doens't sound that bad since you get to have your top 2 choices...Would you blindly pay for a trip that you didn't get to choose the destination?
