Many of you have probably seen the box, but maybe never understood what it was for or never even looked at the option. The “Multi-Destination” option on every companies’ website allows you to purchase an airline ticket that flies into one city and out of a different city. This is a backpackers’ dream. To be able to fly into London and out of Rome, into Oslo and out of Helsinki.
My wife and I took a trip in 2009 that used a multi destination tool. We wanted to go and see Southeast Asia. I had previously been to Thailand and the stories of the massages and the food intrigued my wife. She told me that she wanted to see the people, cultures, and food of a completely different world. As I searched for tickets I was looking for tickets into Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. When the lowest prices were on American Airlines and the prices matched coming in and out of both Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City I knew it was time to look at the Multi Destination option. I punched in flying into Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and flying out of Bangkok the price resulted the same. Great Success!
I was really excited because the idea of buying a flight in and out of Bangkok would have meant one additional flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok, so the tool saved me one whole flight, transportation to the airport, bla bla bla. Plus you get to see pictures like this one.
