Vote: Are Surprise Getaways the Next Big Thing?

By Tonka Dobreva 10.22.2017 interact

Planning a vacation can be a daunting task, but a new trend is on a mission to turn that into an exciting adventure. Instead of booking flights, finding accommodations and building an itinerary yourself, opt for a surprise getaway!

Companies like Pack Up + Go, Magical Mystery Tours and Lufthansa Surprise promise to do the hard work that goes into organizing a trip– all you have to do is fill out a survey and give your price point. Then pack your bags and show up for departure to a surprise destination.

    It is a very good idea!

    Why do you guys keep saying “But what if you pack something for hot weather but its actually cold?” It tells you what to pack.

    My biggest concern is that if you are n adult and have kids, meaning you do not want them to be harmed, and you are sent to Iraq or some dangerous place in the Middle East, it is putting you and your family at risk! I’m sure there is probably a refund if you absolutely do not want to go to the place selected. I think I heard something about a quiz finding out what you like, but a quiz doesn’t define what you like! I think that this is not the NBT!

    I think it is the next big thing because it leaves you more excitement when your next vacation is big mystery to be solved. It would make you want to use it every time you go on a vacation.

    Imagine you thought you were going to someplace hot but then you went to someplace cold! Everything you pscked would be for nothing

    I think it is the Next Big Thing because it takes a lot of time to book where you are going and this program does it for you.
