CURRENT SITUATION

We noticed that users only spend seconds on every page before they move on to the next one, attention of the users become the most valuable currency. There is a need for CheapOair to develop a new feature/ tool to enhance engagement and prompts the user to spend more time on our site. In addition, it can be expected that we are able to solid our brand image with such new feature. Finally, there is potential demographics that we can include for CheapOair and that is what we are looking forward to achieve with Explore tool. 

PROPOSED SOLUTION

A web tool that helps users to escape, plan for vacation, create a bucketlist, track destinations and finally begin the booking process on payment page. 

 

 

Projected Impact

  1. Increae user engagement for CheapOair.com: by providing valid suggestions and encouraging attention and longer time spent on­site
  2. Prompt up user sign­ups and userprofile: by wishlist ­mechanism
  3. Encourage more flight bookings made 

Flow & Wireframes
