TravelMath Will Tell You If It’s Better To Fly Or Drive (And If Your Family Is Overcharging You For Gas)
Meet the new search engine that will squash the arguments and drama often bred by travel plans: TravelMath.
The cool new website helps travelers estimate the time and cost it will take them to get to a destination by using various modes of transportation. It even helps you determine how many days you would need off from work if you drive or decide to take the bus/train to your destination. Travel And Leisure reports: “TravelMath figures the cost of time off and [factors] that into its decision. For those who are ecologically conscious, the search engine will determine which form of transportation will leave a smaller carbon footprint.”
When you’re done with reviewing your travel options, TravelMath gives each score an option— the option with the lowest score is the one that would make more financial sense to the inquirer. For example, my family in Brooklyn often drives (or flies) to Toronto and we often debate with one another about how much gas money everyone should put in. TravelMath also gives you a gas price estimate so you can see if your family member is charging you a sitting fee in their car, on the low.
With the Holidays right around the corner, TravelMath is the perfect site to visit before you commit to driving 10 hours to a destination that is a two-hour plane ride away.
