• People who live in different countries sometimes want to get together for a trip
  • They want to know what the cheapest destination is

A lives London, B lives in San Francisco. They want to go on a holiday together, but aren't sure where to go. Trivialgo makes finding cheap flights to a common destination (possibly midway) trivial.
