Remember Jeeves? The well-dressed butler with a permanent smile on his face gave everyone in the nineties a glimpse of the powers of the Internet. Back then, all you had to do to solve a problem was type in a question, wait a few seconds, and presto! Instant (if buggy) service. Our favorite little servant may have gone the way of dial-up, but the concept behind him -- meting out answers to questions of every stripe -- is still as powerful as ever. That’s why it pleases us to present our latest feature: an exclusive partnership with travel planning service Mygola.

Unlike Jeeves, MyGola provides you with answers from actual people. Any question you type goes straight to a human guide, who scours their resources to find you whatever you need. Desperate to find the cleanest hostel in Bangkok? How about the cheapest place for a lobster dinner in Dallas? Don’t worry -- MyGola knows.

So where do we come in? Well, if you take a gander at any of our destination pages, you’ll find a box where you can ask MyGola a question. Type it in and their experts will conjure up an answer. In other words, you can talk to the Jeeves of travel. Ain't it a beautiful thing?
