myTab.co (www.mytab.travel) is a US & UK travel gift card where you save travel cash and shout 'put it on myTab' so friends and family contribute towards your dream trip. Then simply redeem the funds from thousands of flights and hotels, all within myTab. myTabbers have a happier pre booking experience because they are cash rich so the focus shifts from price frustration to an exciting funding & booking momentum. Gifters know their cash gifting won't be discarded and they're emotionally involved in the full life cycle (note $30b of $100b gift cards a year are discarded, until we came along).
And with our gift card platform, we can also negotiate exclusive rates with travel suppliers on myTabbers behalf. We call this Match myCash and it's brilliant - we take crowd funding to a whole new level and stabilize the economy for low time & long lead revenues. Read the blog post that explains it all. http://mytab.co/post/show/3622
