GetGoing is a venture-backed San Francisco startup changing the way people travel by making it more fun and affordable. Our goal is to help leisure travelers discover new getaways, save big (up to 40%) and travel more. We are working with major airlines and hotels to revolutionize the travel industry while delivering the best experience and prices to our users. Currently, we fly to over 2000 destinations worldwide.
Our proprietary pricing method helps airlines fill unsold seats (up to 20% of available seats) by selling to discretionary, price-sensitive leisure travelers. To purchase a ticket on our website, customers need to select two destinations and commit to a non-refundable purchase. During the flight selection process, customers can choose arrival and departure times, flight duration, and the number of stops. GetGoing selects one of the destinations, revealing it to the customer after processing the booking and payment. Since our model requires destination flexibility, we ensure that our sales exclude business travelers, those visiting friends and family, and non-flexible leisure customers.
We have eight U.S. and international patents and keep expanding our intellectual property portfolio with innovative pricing, search and customer segmentation methods.
