@vladstan No doubt! Do you have any integration service for TOMO so that I could brew/offer something beautiful for my users ? Win-Win makes more sense :)

I've been playing with Tomo for a while now and I love the experience! Although there are many services offering the cheapest flights (as @bentossell also noted), I enjoy Tomo more because of its friendly chat feeling. It's like I have a buddy who's doing his best to help me travel cheaper and learn more about new places - the tips & info on destinations make it even more fun. @vladstan & @aluxian, one question for you: how do you source the deals? Also, it would be nice to be able to have a wishlist ❤️

@andreeamih Thanks for the kind words, we're so happy when our users are happy! For sourcing deals we have 3 flight hackers helping us (America, Europe, Asia+Oceania), but we also have automated processes to scan lots of other websites as well. Right now we're partly manual because we want to understand our users' behaviour and what the best way to find deals is. We've been reading about hacking flights for the past few weeks and soon we'll be ready to automate most of it. AI will play an important role as we plan to not only customize the service to our users' preferences but also learn what they like so we can send the best deals.

@vladstan @andreeamih Love the UI. Congratulations. I especially liked the promo video on Tomo Site using the comic character. I'm trying to build a product video, may I if you got any external help to make the video?

Thanks @kwdinc for the hunt! We're thrilled to be on Product Hunt :) We love to travel, but what's even better is when we hack the airfare prices for our flights. This is the reason we built Tomo, a Facebook Messenger bot with only one job: to find cheap flights for your next trip. Tomo searches 24/7, all the airlines. We named it Tomo because in Japanese, “tomo” means “long time friend”, and that’s the spirit of the project. Tomo is your travel mate, always searching the best price for you. Don't hesitate to ask us anything!

So many services offer to find the cheapest flights Why is this better than the rest?

@bentossell Hello Ben, probably the main difference is the medium. You'll get them on FB Messenger on real time. Also, because we have more info about the users than a normal service, we aim to personalize the offers and offer a much better experience for the users.

@vladstan @bentossell Yep! The main selling point (besides saving money) is personalization. We're working on understanding our users' patterns so we can provide several other features: say we find a deal from London to New York but you're in Edinburgh, we'll also find you a flight to London; or say you want to receive only during a specific time period, or for a continent you're interested in, or under a certain budget, etc, we can customize all of this. We're working on these features. Also, additionally to having our 3 deal hunters, we also check other sources to make sure we don't miss anything!
