When you put in the dates, i was not sure if it was fly date. it's probably a nit but maybe a some extra guidance.1 vote
We have little arrows now that go from one location to another on screen and pass through a little airplane.
I hope this helps clarify that the dates is the departure dates.
this was confusing for me at first. It still is at times. But we have not gotten feedback on this at all.
It does not seem to be a problem.
I'm 60 years old, from the U.S., married to an educated Thai woman, and have traveled for about 4 years in 19 3rd world countries in Asia, and Central/South America. Your statement today that rabies vaccine is very expensive in the U.S. is completely true (my sister is a veterinarian, and she said that her cost for the vaccine is much more than the $1000 amount for the 5 shot series if you were bitten by a possible rabies carrier). Note that my wife was bitten in Bangkok by a stray dog, and had to get the 5 shot series. The vaccine they used was called Rabipure, and was exactly the same vaccine used in the U.S. (I saved the Rabipure tag). The cost per shot was $18 (yes: $18! for the same vaccine) vs about $500 in the U.S. Noting that we have also received other vaccines in South America and Thailand, our costs for the vaccines were outrageously miniscule compared to what I personally paid in the U.S. years ago. Not even in the same universe. The ONLY potential problem is that there are fake medicines that do show up, therefore I would recommend that folks get whatever meds they need at hospitals or overseas travel clinics. Those rabies vaccines I saw in Thailand were packaged EXACTLY like in the U.S. (plastic bag containing Rabipure vaccine/diluent/instruction booklet). As the cost was so cheap, I got the 3 shot pre-exposure vaccine series for myself (just in case). I also saw the same huge cost discrepancy in other vaccines/pills. U.S. prices are simply ridiculous.
Just mentioning it for whatever it's worth.

Mark, thank you for that comment!
It’s nice to here first hand experiences.
I forwarded your comment to our editor.
fixed long ago. We have hundreds of users on Indie every day. We have very few problems with this.
Currently if a user searches for Vietnam, nothing comes up.
More cities/countries that don't come up or are hard to find:
Ho Chi Minh City only shows up if you type in Saigon (its former name)
Kolkata only shows up if you type in Calcutta (Kolkata is the more global spelling)
Luang Prabang isn't in the system at all
Tajikistan isn't in the system at all1 vote
I am contacting you as I write a travel blog where you can find unique, frequent posts offering both travel advice and inspiration.
I’ve recently written an article about 5 places you need to visit before they vamoose!
I think it would be interesting for visitors to your website, www.roundtheworldticket.com.
If you like the article, would you link to the article from your website? Alternatively, perhaps you would share it via Google+, Twitter or Facebook?
Let me know your thoughts. Thank you for your time.

Thanks, Kerri. Will you email adam @bootsnall.com?
My passport lists my middle name - we might want to at least add space for folks to me able to enter it. Now it's just First and Last.2 votes
Why not give me the calendar as soon as I enter the city name? This has me full of confusion. I think it is because the last city shown is in theory my final destination? So maybe the calendar field needs to say inside it "depart date"1 vote
Thank you Chris!
We’ve made a few improvements:
- The date areas now say “select date”
- Roll-over help says “Departure date”
It is confusing that the date fields don’t jump out more because that’s what we’ve all grown used to with round-trips. But it seems like leaving the dates off at first lends itself better to long-term trip planning where people are really figuring out where they want to go as they enter their stops. (and in what order).
If we force dates too early, then when users move them around, they then have to “fix” the dates.
I think we have more room for improvement and we’re open to suggestions.
the airport code AGA for Agadir doesn't come up with looking for routes.1 vote
AGA is added. Morocco, here we come!
On your type ahead, when I enter the airport code and you pop up your response, let me use the arrow keys to roll down to make the selection and the enter button to verify it1 vote
works now. Thanks for the tip!
once I save a route and land on the "Your Routes" page - I'd like to have a button to go back to the planning tool1 vote
We added a link that lets you get right back. Also, you can always click “create a route” or the Indie logo to get back now.
States/provinces are recognized for USA, Canada and Australia.
I had to wait perhaps 30 seconds or so till the next screen came up. If it is supposed to take that long - can we put some simple messaging up in the while we wait?3 votes
Only HND is available. What about Narita (NRT)?1 vote
Thanks for being patient. We now have Narita!
Moscow has several airports. We only show one (VKO) and it's not the main one. The first two of these should be in Indie: DME, SVO, BKA, VKO1 vote
We now have the hub city code MOV. IT includes DME, SVO and VKO. Spasiba!
This routing failed and my guess is that it is the YAP airport. When I swapped it out for bigger destinations (eg: DPS & NAN), I could get a price.1 vote
Removed YAP from displaying for now.
Currently, when I select a big city, I might see several options for that city and I need help choosing which option is best. Sometimes an option is a hub airport instead of a tiny airport. Sometimes the option is a city code and not an airport.
For example: Moscow and Beijing.4 votes
We have city codes now! Check out NYC and LON for examples.
When searching more than one route, I'd love to be able to hit "clear all" or a similar button to clear the route and start over. It's annoying to have to "x" out of each leg.1 vote
The clear all button is now in the toolbox area in the bottom left.
There is no sideways scrolling option when the user's screen resolution is too small to display the entire page.1 vote
I did a search - got a fare - tried to add another stop, got a fare - deleted the stop I added, and wanted to get the original fare.
Been spinning for a few minutes.2 votes
