Company description

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

We're just waiting for you to catch up...

Competitive advantage

myTab is the only website to offer the simple art of gifting cash towards friends/family travel wish lists. It's a first! myTab is an ally to the online travel industry :) 

With our "Match myCash" feature, we're an ally to the travel industry as we match user's saved/gifted cash & trips to suppliers/OTA's deals. This ensures the user doesn't lift a finger to search travel deals & the industry can accomodate their slow margins towards more strategic profit.
