UX inspiration – smart holiday picker

I came across the below holiday picker on british airways site. Instead of giving you a list of places that you haven’t ever heard of, it helps you narrow down your choice based on temperature and journey time.

Or you may think that you only want to fly for under 7 hours, and would like to see everywhere warm, within 7 hours.

The results?

A selection of places that you  might never have heard of but match your requirements. Who knows? it could increase travel to destinations which aren’t on the typical tourist trail
