Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
Getting to a destination can be costly and time-consuming. Direct flights are often extremely expensive. Flights with connections can easily result in a full-day of travel and can tire out with long layovers and worries about a missing connection. TravelWits, LLC has just launched a website TravelWits.com that offers its customers alternative travel options that are cheaper and more convenient when combining flying and driving. The users can select how much driving they prefer before and after the flight, and TravelWits.com will search for all the cheap ways to combine driving and flying together.
"I am from Pittsburgh and nonstop flights from here can be really expensive," said Maxim Likhachev, a co-founder of TravelWits and Professor at Carnegie Mellon University specializing in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. "For example, right now a non-stop flight from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles is over $600. Using TravelWits you can see that you can also drive 177 miles to Columbus, Ohio and take a non-stop flight from there for $199. When traveling with a family this can be over a thousand of dollars in savings!"
TravelWits.com uses latest technologies in Artificial Intelligence to search in real-time hundreds of small and large airports that one can drive to before the flight and after the flight. The result: list of cheapest and most convenient options. The more the travelers are willing to drive, the more they can save while not worrying about missing a connection. "I have had countless times when I took a flight with a connection and missed my connection," added Maxim Likhachev. "Last time I flew to Seattle through Chicago I barely made the connection, but my luggage didn't. For two days I was stuck in Seattle without my luggage!" By driving a bit extra to remote and small airports travelers can often enjoy hassle-free travel and save hundreds and sometimes even thousands of dollars.
