myTab.co (www.mytab.travel) is a travel gift card. Save travel cash & shout 'put it on myTab' so friends & family contribute towards your dream trip. Then simply redeem the funds from thousands of flights and hotels, all within myTab. MAking for a happier pre travel & booking experience while bringing emotion back to gift giving. Available in the UK and USA...more countries coming soon.
With our gift card platform, we also negotiate exclusive rates with travel suppliers on myTabbers behalf. We call this Match myCash & it's brilliant - taking crowd funding to a whole new level & stabilize the economy for low time & long lead revenues. We already changed the world so...catch up!
We use a simple stack of MySql, Linux, Apache, PHP and Zend to mash up travel, ecommerce and social.
What makes myTab unique:
1 - The first travel site to address the biggest issue in travel (ignored until myTab came along): price fluctuations and frustration. With myTab, myTabbers are now cash rich so their focus switches from price search, to a happier booking experience.
2 - Bringing emotion back to gift giving (note $30b of $100b gift cards are unredeemed a year).
3 - Additional booking feature 'Match myCash' takes crowd funding to a new level. The more myTabbers funding trips (gifted/saved), the more bargaining power myTab has to negotiate exclusive deals with the industry. Suppliers then generate revenues at slow/long lead times to a cash rich, captured travel audience at a fraction of traditional marketing & advertising costs. This also stabilizes the industry and game changes ecommerce.
4 - The first travel site to generate (potentially) big data on pre-travel trends of users & traveling friends.We actually know what we'll do with our big data!
