@Pat271 That's funny, and you know it's actually the perfect illustration of a search tool that I'd love to have that for lack of the technical term I'd call the "donut search."
For example: Include all listings in all directions within a 100 mile radius from home. But exclude all listings within a 20 mile radius.
Tech people, what's the proper name for that?
@Andrew0 I'm not a techie, but "Flexible location search"?
I once made airline reservations for myself and my partner's 5 year old son for a vacation from Canada to Guatemala. Being about 23 years old at the time, and not very savvy about such things, I had neglected to check the travel requirements and the 5 year old didn't have a passport, just a birth certificate. Not adequate for a trip to Guatemala. And there we were in the airport with our bags.
So I asked the airline where else warm and tropical they flew that wouldn't require a passport. We flew to St. Lucia instead, on the spot travel change. Had a great time.
@Andrew0 That would involve being able to specify an inner and outer radius on a map, and identifying properties lying between those radii. I agree it would be quite useful. I wonder if there is prior art on this idea that might be patentable.
Oh @Pat271 , that’s funny!
@Andrew0 , @Colleen253 & @Sarah977 , Facebook marketplace allows search ranges within a particular number of kilometres from home. Maybe AIrbnb could do the reverse. Offer a search that starts, like Andrew said, a specific number of kilometres from the home location! Lol... Get your Google maps on... but may not work if your address is a longitude and latitude, rather than a street number! Lol..
