What is the best vacation for you? Me? Or anyone?
When attempting to research or book a vacation online, it’s often one of two types of experiences: 1) the decision is made for you based on few or no inputs; or 2) you’re given lots of information to make your own decision. Either way it’s not always the most satisfying experience or outcome.

You’ll see how Apple Vacations approached their Decision Discovery to identify those key decisions that needed to be automated first; those that would ultimately act as a smart travel agent.
