Is there anything better than an exotic vacation?
Yes! When somebody else pays for it.
That’s the concept behind a new travel site called myTab, making it easier and more affordable than ever for you to whore around Vegas. Eat yourself silly in New Orleans. Tip cows in Omaha.
Whatever you can dream up, it can quickly become a reality when your friends and family foot the bill.
myTab’s partnered with Expedia and PayPal to let users plan individual or group trips. Then people can log in and fund your account. Or, you can add cash on your own.
Think of it as layaway for your dream vacation.
Once you’ve saved up a decent sum, you can click the “Match myCash” button and their search engine will pull up travel deals to your destination within 15% of the amount you’ve saved. This makes it so easy to see how far you can stretch your travel dollar.
Through Facebook and Twitter, it’s even easier to get the word out. Or give money toward somebody else’s tab.
And there’s still time to alert Aunt Dot-Dot that this is what you want for Christmas. Because another pair of footie pajamas isn’t going to cut it. Especially when you could be walking barefoot on the beaches of Hawaii instead.
