I’ve written about how I’m a huge fan of the FancyHands personal assistant service–especially for travel related items.
Recently, they added an option where you can text requests that need to be done immediately to them. Through that, they charge a task per certain number of minutes they spend on your request. So if you need really quick things done, you can get multiple items completed and it will only count as a task.
I was booking a train that left in forty minutes, but I had no idea if I had a ticket or not. But my signal wasn’t stable enough to make a phone call to Amtrak. So I texted FancyHands.
I didn’t have to do anything myself and my problem was solved. I didn’t get on the train I wanted, but I also wasn’t in a rush. Amtrak’s points take an hour to post back to your account and they have no way of pushing them faster–so FancyHands did everything they could have done.
My stress levels were low because I was pretty confident my problem would get solved. And I still had time left on my task, so I can text them again for free.
If you’d like to try them out, I have a referral link that will get you 50% off your first month. It will also give me referral credit too, though.
Want to try out a task for free? Leave a comment about your most stressful travel situation and I’ll choose someone to have a free FancyHands task. (This is not sponsored by FancyHands–it will come out of my pool of available tasks).
