Mission & Services

Mission

By finding affordable flights based on custom criteria, my mission is to improve accessibility to both domestic and international travel. By doing so, I aim to enrich the worldviews of clients and those they come into contact with.

Motivation

I know firsthand the impact of travel on expanding one’s perspective and believe it should be a right. However, especially in the U.S., a high perceived cost of travel prevents many from experiencing new countries and cultures (or even traveling domestically). Due in part to costs, many of my friends and contacts still have not traveled outside of the U.S., or even outside of their region. It was finding flights for a friend that got me interested in flight-searching techniques, and I’ve been informally helping friends, colleagues, and contacts find cheap flights since 2015.

Services

My free flight-finding services are available to any students, young professionals, and individuals/families who would otherwise have difficulty affording travel. Individuals from all countries are welcome to submit requests, but please note that my skill sets are most developed in finding flights from the U.S. Americans who have not yet traveled abroad, as travel has previously been inaccessible to them, are also able to request a free #FirstTimeAbroad package with additional planning services. Please note that all services involve finding rather than booking specific flights, and that responsibility for travel arrangements ultimately lies with the client.

International Flights

I am able to find affordable international flights. While I am most skilled in finding flights from the U.S., I welcome requests from those in other countries as well. Examples of international flights I have found include $69 one-way East Coast flights to Brussels, $69 one-way East Coast flights to Iceland, $210 round-trip West Coast flights to New Zealand, and EUR 109 round-trip flights from Geneva to New York.

The cheapest international fares will be found on budget airlines, which can be reliable but often not include baggage. If you prefer not to fly with a budget airline, or require that baggage be included, please specify this when you submit a request.

Domestic Flights

Especially within the U.S., standard domestic flights can be incredibly pricey as well! There is certainly plenty that can also be learned from exploring more of one’s own country. Examples of flights I’ve found include $40 one-way from Florida to Ft. Myers, $99 round-trip (non-budget) from DC to San Diego, and $88 round-trip from DC to Las Vegas.

#FirstTimeAbroad

As helping Americans to experience other cultures for the first time lies at the core of my motivation, I am pleased to offer additional free services to American individuals/families traveling abroad for the first time if they have found this travel to be previously inaccessible. More information is available here!

Expansion

While my current services will benefit those who have a small amount saved for travel, I regret that I cannot do more to help those with no current savings. Should you know of any sponsorship opportunities, so that I may establish travel grants for such individuals, please contact me directly. Thank you!
