CASE STUDY: 2 Travelers from Madrid and Barcelona

Case Study on a group of two friends wanting to meet up.

A private group travel case: 2 Friends from Madrid and Barcelona want to meet up to spend some quality time together

The challenge: Find a cheap and “nice” place to meet and compare it to one of them traveling to the other.

Task: Which is the best location to meet?

Barcelona and Madrid are around 5 hours drive away from each other. Both cities are well served with a high-speed train connection as well as a lot of direct and cheap flights per day. Finding locations where both can fly to and which will be cheaper than one of them traveling to the other sounds challenging.

TroopTravel accepted the challenge and found out these results:
