Our story

One jaw-dropping flight deal started it all. In 2013 Scott Keyes found the best deal he'd ever seen from NYC to Milan.

When he returned from that trip, his friends all begged him to let them know the next time he found an amazing deal. Scott's Cheap Flights (now Going) was born.

Today, Going is a team of more than 50 people serving more than 2 million travelers.

Packing cubes are a game changer in being able to pack more and to keep organized. Also be sure to have a bag just for dirty clothes - if you forget to bring one and are staying at a hotel with an ice bucket, you'll usually be in luck with a plastic bag from that as your dirty clothes bag for smaller items like socks.
