Choose your own adventure. 

Spontaneous air travel has been made easier with Air Ticket Arena (, a free app that promises the spoils of last-minute holidays to the highest bidder.

How it works: pick your destination, party size, dates (at least 14 days in advance of travel and a 14-day trip at most) and the most you’d be willing to pay for a ticket. If there are still seats available 24-48 hours ahead of the flight, those seats will be automatically auctioned off.

The downside? There’s a price floor. The upside? Wallet-friendly flights and the spirit of adventure. Get packing.

Update: The app will reportedly launch on the App Store in March.
