Since launching this December, there have been a few early
But Monica from Toronto changed all that, so we caught up with her to hear about her experience. Here's what she had to say:
[Yore Oyster] Tell us about your upcoming trip!
[Monica] I'll be heading out to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for two weeks in October. Roundtrip airfare was only $385 USD ($469 CAD)! I don't have any definitive plans for my trip yet but it's always been a dream of mine to go to Rio; with the culture, beaches, rainforest, and sports I'm sure there's no shortage of activities!
[Yore Oyster] You discovered the flight deal from Toronto to Rio through Oyster Chat. How did you hear about Oyster Chat?
[Monica] I discovered Oyster Chat through a friend I actually met while traveling a couple of years ago. One of the most amazing things about traveling is the community of people you meet - everyone loves to share their travel tips and secrets. So when I saw her post about Oyster Chat I knew I had to give it a shot!
[Yore Oyster] How long did it take from the time you first heard about the Rio de Janeiro flight to the time you booked it? Was it an easy process, or did you run into any difficulties?
[Monica] Because going to Rio has always been a dream of mine, it didn't take long for me to pull the trigger. I'd say within an hour of hearing about the flight I had booked my ticket. The process was simple and I had support from others on Oyster Chat to help me sort out my dates while I was booking.
[Yore Oyster] What are the main 1-2 things you use Oyster Chat for?
[Monica] First and foremost, Oyster Chat is great for getting immediate updates on any trip deals. Then I'd say it's great for connecting with others who might also be traveling around the same time, or to get tips from those who have been before.
[Yore Oyster] Would you recommend Oyster Chat to others?
[Monica] Absolutely! If you're planning a trip or if you're looking for inspiration to do something adventurous and spontaneous, Oyster Chat is definitely worth checking out.
That's it from Monica for now, but be sure to
