    Pros: 

    Fun, easy interface - cool idea!

    Cons: 

    it's brand new, so offers are limited

    I heard about this from a friend because I wanted to be able to enter my budget and other constraints somewhere, and then let a computer generate all sorts of options for the weekend. These guys are doing exactly that!

  • Pros: 

    Cool idea, solves a pain point planning short breaks

    Cons: 

    Buggy app, shame there's no web version (yet)

    I don't tend to install one-off apps anymore, and I'm biased towards web, but I think this would function better as a web app. I do little of my holiday searching on mobile.

    The app itself is okay, but buggy. In just 10 minutes of use, I had several instances of infinite loading, had to close and reopen the app because it stopped working, and just a black screen on 'saved items' (iPhone 7 11.2.6).

    I'm sure these sorts of niggles will be addressed as the app matures, and the concept itself is very cool. However, I couldn't really recommend it in its current state.

Cool service if you ask me, if you want to get surprised or don't like the work of planning, booking, and doing that 10 more times. Built by friends here in Amsterdam. If you book now if someone books a weekend away with them, they'll give a $/£/€25 cash back (ask @junaid for details) for product hunters!

Hi everyone! My name is Junaid and I am one of the co-founders of TakeMeAway. A little about what we're trying to solve - we think planning a weekend getaway can be frustrating. It’s especially annoying going through the whole booking process only to find out the price is much higher than expected. So you either book the more expensive trip or have to rethink your entire plan. TakeMeAway gives you inspiration for your next getaway. And the best part? It’s all within your budget. How does it work? We use an adaptive algorithm to combine flight (Skyscanner) and hotel availability (booking.com) results based on the combination of individual component prices and user-based filter settings to ensure the user has as many options presented based on their individual budget. The results are further tailored based on up-to-the-minute pricing information for flights and hotels from our partners. We hope that gives a nice introduction to us! Please fire away any questions or queries you may have :)
