Momondo Takes Travel Searches Down to a Double Click
Have you ever been online reading about an exotic locale and thought, “Wow, I wonder what it would cost to fly there?” Well the folks at Momondo have an answer to that question and you don’t even need to leave the page.
Momondo introduced Clicktwo Travel this week and it is pretty groovy. If you have a Chrome browser (and if you don’t, may I ask why?) Clicktwo Travel is an extension that allows you to double click on any destination name and it will bring up a pop up bubble to tell you the average fee to fly there. Get a load of it here:
As you can see in the video, no matter where you are; Facebook, Pinterest, Wikipedia, you can find out exactly what it would cost to get there. It works with destinations as well as city names. I clicked on Yellowstone National Park and it gave me flight info to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. If there is any misunderstanding, the extension knows to give you a choice like it did for me here:
The little “s” looking swerve in the upper right side of the window will also give you a map to the actual location from the airport as well. The only downfall is going to be for the people who double-click words in Chrome already for web definitions or to highlight a word to copy and paste it. You can, however, disable the extension easily enough and even when it is in this mode, you can simply highlight a word and press the M key to bring up the Momondo window.
Brilliantly designed and elegantly simple, Clicktwo Travel is as Momondo says, “Putting the whole world two clicks away.”
