Just away! This is the motto of the people who leave the choice of their travel destination to fortune… or better to the degree of capacity utilization of the airlines and hotels. As a result of a survey of the travel portal Urlaubspiraten.de 10% of the Germans are not averse to this form of travelling after all.
For travelers eager for surprises blind booking represents a cheap alternative. In question of booking a flight this means: budget, airport of departure and period of travel are determined by the travelers. Where they travel to is only revealed shortly before departure. Depending on the airline possible destinations can be narrowed down – though usually against a surcharge.
In case of hotel bookings normally the destination and the category of the hotel are defined by the traveler. The choice of the hotel is taken by the tour operator.
Also certain providers of cruises allow the specification of the period of travel to save a particular price. The destination is only revealed shortly before departure. For 2018 the first cruise with an unknown route is planned by the shipping company Saga Cruises. The route will only be announced on board and only for the next day.
