I want a search agent that's heavily customizable to send me updates when certain things happen. What I specifically want is the ability to watch for fares of certain types to specific places FROM MY LOCAL AIRPORTS, or fares for vacation deals, again, FROM MY LOCAL AIRPORTS.
Sample criteria I want to have an agent look for:
- Boston to Greece, unusually low, no more than 1 stopover (and it can't be a 12 hour stopover)
- Long weekend vacation packages to certain Caribbean islands, from Boston, flights no longer than 4 hours (including any stopovers). Under a certain price threshold.
- Extraordinary low prices on fares to certain continents, again from Boston or local airports here.
- Alerts for fares from Boston to key cities I care about (e.g., Paris, London, Cleveland, San Jose).
- Unusual travel packages like volunteer work, adventure (er, not athletic, but cultural), educational. I get to rate these as they come in and get more like them or less like them, till it learns what I like.
- A home page where I can tune and browse, and easily set up new email alerts; something like Amazon's Recommendations system. I want it to know me and learn about me.
PS. If someone wants to start this business, I'd be very motivated to help design it and to collect more requirements. Drop me a note.
