Okay, let's just be honest. No one really works while at work 100% of the time. Sometimes you have to put work on hold to tend to more pressing issues, like planning your next vacation. And that is not easy to do with your boss peering over your shoulder constantly.
Fortunately for you and your PTO, Kayak has come up with a fool-proof, desktop-only hack that will allow you to stealthily plan your vacation from the office without tipping off your boss: Kayak At Work.
It's Kayak's website mocked up to look like an Excel spreadsheet called the Travel Problems Solved Report—a nod to Office Space, of course. This faux-spreadsheet will trick nosy coworkers into thinking you were doing work all along. Genius!
At a glance, Kayak at Work looks like a regular, boring spreadsheet. But look closer:
Yup, it's actually a search engine to find the best flights. You'll totally look productive to your coworkers while you're actually searching for plane seats with the most legroom.
How did Kayak come up with this genius idea? A study of Kayak users found that 57% of searches take place during the workday, with Tuesdays being the day of the week people are most likely plan their vacations instead of work. Kayak at Work is desktop-only based on the company's findings that 66% of wannabe-travelers were brazen enough to search for cheap flights on desktops.
So check out Kayak at Work for yourself and start planning your trip. Just don't tell your boss that we sent you.
